12 ounce poured into pint glass.

A: white frothy head, retention is decent fading to a thin white film. Amber with a very subtle touch of red.

S: Citrus pumpkin carmel strange but not bad

T: Hop forward with a mellow hop finish. Not very dynamic when cold. I let the second half warm a little and some spices and malt came out finishing with a pleasant lasting pine hop finish

M: typical for an ipa but I didn't get to enjoy the full flavor until it was nearly flat.

O: glad I let it warm decent ipa par for the course

Just noticed the best before date of 2/13/13. I'm starting to think the selection for a mix-six is all expired beers that the store is trying to get rid of.

Appearance: Pale honey hue with visible effervescence and decent clarity. Frothy one finger off-white head.

Aroma: Grain and citrus bitterness.

Taste: Clean and intense bitterness throughout without any real hop flavor. A malt bill of caramel, a touch of amber, and a bit of peppery biscuit flavor. Sort of an average for the style. Not much of a 'wow' factor but also no off-flavors. There is a nice crispness to the finish and a dry factor that leads to a lightly bitter aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Medium in body but feels lighter at times. Average carbonation and easy drinkability.

Final Thoughts: Outlaw IPA is a pretty middle of the road IPA. At 6.3% it's just above sessionable range but there is definitely enough malt and hops to keep the palate interesting. Would I drink it again? Yes, if fresh.

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.
