This beer plays nice with others, it's not an Outlaw by any means of the word. It's more of a politician IPA...looks like it has a fresh layer of tan in a can with a copper hued body and frosted off white head. The texture is dimpled just like the cheeks of one of those cheesing politicians louting for your vote. Aroma is caramelized malts with hints of hops coming through the nose, it's the type of Kool-Aid you can get anyone to drink especially when you name it the OUTLAW IPA, look I love two brothers but their German style beers with butterflies although not sounding too tough next to an outlaw has more balls and depth than this beer. When I mention depth I'm talking about credibility these are the Cane and Ebel guys, the Domaine duPage French farm house ale guys, not the Outlaw canned approachable but nervous at a party IPA guys. They brew beer in oak staves, this is just a solid approachable IPA call it Monarch slap a butterfly on the can and label it as a reserved but beautiful drinking IPA that should be drank with pinkies up. Really mouthfeels like I just douched with perfume, lingering watery hop bath, not a real IPA. Sorry guys I love your beer and I will love this beer once it's marketed as a more subtle loveable can offering I will drink that Kool-Aid, rather than an aggressive IPA that it's not.

A: Sharp clarity on a light pumpkin orange coloring. Thin, washy head, oatmeal color, doesn't hold long. Light spacious of moderate rise of effervesce with a minimal lacing.
S: Grassy grapefruit, tart lemonade with a limited strength per style. Gentle fade of lemony fresh flowers.
T: Starts out really sweet from the grains, some flowery lemon hops that are light to moderate in strength. Flavor seems a bit thin substance wise, with some toasted nature and grassy pine fade but really fails to capture and hold ones attention.
M: Medium maltiness, toasted dry citrus and grains, average rate of carbonation with a small leave of bright lemony hops on the tongue.
O: Overall the hops seem a bit muddled, could be brighter and more defined, rather it stands in the background like the shy kid sitting in the back of the classroom not wanting to get noticed. At 60 ibus i was expecting a bit more, the flavor is not really bad, its just an ipa thats more of a casual drinker rather then an experience. Average expectations.

Pours a lively orange/copper with a thick and fluffy head more orange than any I've ever seen before. Settles nicely into the glass leaving an ample amount of lacing clinging to the glass. Nice clarity.
Smells of pine sap, grapefruit pith, sweet malty grains and light touches of pineapple and caramel. Not amazing depth or even anything that really stands out, but for a regular IPA, it's very nice.
Tastesjust like the nose hints at. Nicely piney, fresh cut citrus, splashes of caramel, mango, fresh cut grass and sweet malt grains.
Really nice blend of citrus, grassy pine and grainy sweetness. Nothing really special but very nicely done.
If you're looking for yet another over the top IPA, this isn't it. What it is a fantastic drinking IPA with nice balance and depth. An awesome cookout brew at a touch over 6%.
