Short pour at Kraftwork. Light Amber with soft, soapy head. Hoppy aroma, dry, leafy. Taste brings more astringency, hand soap. Some Medicinal cough drop, but not in a bad way. Piney, herbal.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium golden amber with coppery tones and a three finger white head with good retention and solid lacing. Aroma of caramel and biscuit malt, citrus and grassy hops, grapefruit, hay, light pine. Flavor is biscuit and lightly caramel malt, pine, orange, some continental grassiness, grapefruit with a little dankness. Medium bodied with light to moderate creaminess. An old fashioned tasting IPA with classic English influence in the malt and hops, but with some West Coast character of pine and citrus. I always imagine that a lot of early craft IPAs in the states tasted much like this, but they are rare today. I'm a fan of English malt and find it works with North American hops as well as traditional ones. Great malt depth and interesting hop profile. I think this can has a little age on it, and the herbal hop character seems to have mellowed somewhat, but this still tastes good. Great IPA bitterness in the finish. Enjoyable.

WOW, I thought the 90 IBUs were a little showy, but they are there and they are very much 90. I love the nose, taste and especially the bitterness on the palate. Very well done

Picked this up about a week ago at Gary's in Madison as I had never been there before. Never had a beer from Crossroads either as I was fortunate enough to find this there as a single can. This felt like a cross between something from the Left Coast and a British Pale Ale because of the mouthfeel and hops with the end result being something was easy to drink, enjoyable, and somewhat unique!

Interesting pour to this as quite a bit of foam burst out from the can once I cracked this open as it flew down the side of the can an onto the counter. Once that settled, there wasn't a lot in the glass as I poured this out as this had a nice, coppery hue to it that was bright and full of fine bubbles. A solid wall of lacing was left in my pint glass from the middle on down with some denser "rings" discernible among the lingering suds. Lots of pine, grapefruit, dry and floral British-style hops, and a hint of caramel in the nose a the taste was waxy and had some tea-like spice in it. Easy to feel the Maris Otter and Crystal Malts as they nicely balance out the five hops as the Cascade and Amarillo made this feel like it was from California. Obviously, it wasn't but it easily could have been given that it wasn't like the IPA's common to this neck of the woods!

The right amount of booze was in this as the soft warming sensation I felt complemented the taste nicely and there was enough cracker to the body and carbonation on the plate that this was equally balanced and light on the palate at the same time. Stamped with "BATCH #16720" on the bottom of the can, I'd prefer a traditional date instead but there wasn't any sediment and there were hints of fresh bud in the aftertaste along with a gentle bitterness and lingering burn in the back and a oily stickiness on my lips that left me wishing for another can. Love the label and the liquid inside equally as this would make a wonderful go-to IPA that was a far apart from the dank juice bombs that come from these parts!

Crossroads Brewing Co. "Outrage IPA"
1 pint can coded "I'M TRYING 19305" and sampled on 26 June 2020
$3.49 @ Shop Rite Wine & Spirits, Cherry Hill, NJ

Notes via stream of consciousness: I'm pretty sure I've had the Outrage on tap at the brewery before but I either didn't take notes or lost them. Of course what does that matter? I'm sure they've done an excellent job at canning it, and I hope that it's fresh. Let's see... it's poured a very hazy amber-orange colored body beneath a good sized head of yellowish off-white foam. The aroma combines citrusy and earthy/piney/spicy hops with a bready and gently caramelish malt base. On to the taste... as expected, it's exactly as the aroma suggests. I'm getting a pleasant note of orange from it, and there's some grapefruit and a touch of lime as well. It's floral and softly piney, and it finishes dry, earthy, and spicy along with a solid bitterness that lingers for some time. The alcohol is kept in check, and it's not at all harsh despite the solid bitterness. It's solidly put together and nicely balanced, combining English and American styles. In the mouth it's medium bodied and crisp with a standard carbonation. Overall it's quite nice.

First taste of an Outrage and it didn't disappoint. Laced beautifully in a pour in a pint glass with semi haze and a rich golden amber color. Plenty of pine needle citrusy hops and fruits like lime and grapefruit on the aroma. That follows in the taste with added sweetness balanced with that overpowering pine. Some burnt orange as well. Finishes bitter but in an appropriate way.

3/26/19 canning

Lightly cloudy, gold, topped by persistent head that starts as white whipped cream two inches high and relaxes to a thick topper connected to wallpaper lace that hangs for the ride. Man, that is as good a look as a IPA can get (even better when realization dawns that this is a IIPA)

Bitter orange and grapefruit pith hit first in the medium strength aroma, but subsequent sniffs reveal sweeter citrus notes, dank bud, crisp grain, sweet crackery grain, and even a bit of a roasty note that comes across as nutty. Very alluring. As it warms peach joins the bouquet.

Taste starts with expected citrus notes and dank bud from the aroma but they are joined now by strong herbal bitter notes in this full strength taste. No peach, and the malt notes are on the crisper side with minimal sweet or crackery. There is a nutty undernote that is very delicious. This is an outrage, in a good way!

Easy drinking, light/med. body for (IIPA) style, strong clean finish, perhaps a tad too much carb. Refreshing, with a strong hop bite and zero burn.

Excellent West Coast style with nuance, clean and potent, highly recommended

Brewed with Maris Otter, Pale Malt , Crystal Malt and wheat malts, and Simcoe, Cascade, Centennial, Amarillo, and Citra hops... 1/16/19 canning... Clear deep golden-colored body under a fat off-white foamy head... Presents an earthy citrus and almost rye-like spiciness, with mild sweetness and solid bitterness... West coast-ish throwback kinda beer, with suggestions of pine shellac in the smooth, medium-weight body... Nice beer...
