Happy Hoppy New Easter April Beer Fools' Sunday (Week 684)! Between hops & wanting to make a fool out of myself, this seems like the perfect way to spend the day. I am off tomorrow as part of an amended Spring Break (Good Friday & tomorrow, but not Maundy Thursday), so I feel like I have been given an imbiber's green light. Even better is the opportunity to further The CANQuest (tm), which has now become an impossibility - new & limited-release CANs hit the market EVERY day (or so it seems). I am not giving up, but CANversely, I know that I am missing out. C'est la guerre & I do not suffer from FOMO, mofos, since I have more than enough to keep me satiated for a LONG time. Onward!

From the CAN: "outrage: /'out, raj/verb"; "An act that violates accepted standards of behavior & taste."; "This mettlesome American IPA boasts an aggressive 5 hop blend complimented by the finest British malts."

I am an outrage, so this should be right up my alley. The tab actually fought me on the Crack! as I opened the vent! I braced for a gusher as it is usually overcarbonation that causes this, but I was pleasantly surprised when nothing untoward occurred. A gentle Glug was in order as a celebration, followed by an in-glass swirl that raised just over two fingers of dense, foamy, rocky, tawny head with good retention, leaving nice lacing in its wake. Color was a pretty Golden-Amber (SRM = > 5, < 7) with NE-quality clarity, prompting a visit from The Gelt Gang of Mammon, Midas & Croesus, all desirous of a taste. Nose was dank & resinous & it was making my hophead self VERY happy. Mmm. Mouthfeel was medium, about standard. The taste was biting and bitter, but not so intense as to be gasping. The British malts gave it an earthiness that worked well with the prevalent evergreen/wintergreen/pine tar taste from the hops. Finish was cool, dry & refreshing. This could be a dangerous quaff at 7%, but it was the tastiest of the day.

Delicious caramel hoppy aroma with ruddy bronze color with nice white head that rings out well throughout the drink's duration. Reippsen and citrusy hop flavor. Smooth going down. Enjoyable.

A: A clear golden orange. Patchy, white head. A bit of lacing gives the glass a nice profile.

S: Dank pine and citrus.

M: Crisp with a soft underbelly.

T: Not so much a NEIPA; I can taste the malt, and it imparts a dry biscuit and hints of sweet caramel. Otherwise, a moderately bitter IPA that showcases a litany of hoppy attributes ranging from dank, earthy pine to tropical tinged citrus and berry. A complex spiciness adds another dimension. But to pinpoint the flavors, here's my list: tangerine, melon, pink grapefruit, lemon, peach.
