16.9 oz bottle, bottled on 4/7/14. Pours clear golden yellow with a medium frothy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is piney hops with a little fruit and some stinky tar.

The flavor is sweet bready malt with a little fruit and a big piney, grassy, tarry harsh bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a nice IPA. Not my favorite flavor profile.

I love this beer for the fact that it is interesting and that the hops are Australian. In terms of taste it is different, and that also makes me love it. It is pretty balanced, and the 8% abv is also good to go. There is nothing crazy about this beer, but it carries a high quality swagger with the taste that is fun to drink.

Bottle served cold into an imperial pint glass.

Outcast is a pale golden orange color with unusually good clarity for an imperial IPA. The head is thick at first but settles fairly fast leaving a little lace behind.

Aroma is fresh and full of bright citrus notes. Very hoppy but not overpowering.

Flavor is brilliantly hoppy with many layers and complexities. Citrus is most prevalent but there is also grassy, floral, and spice.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and nicely carbonated. Beautifully balanced and expertly made.

Overall a wonderful double IPA and certainly worth seeking out. I'd love to try some of Crux's other beers. Their labels are excellent too.

500ml bottle poured into snifter bottled on 12/1/15

A: nice amber clear color soapy head with decent retention

S: this smells funky almost like cheese with a slight underlying fruit smell

T: funky cheesy almost garlic oniony in flavor the fruit is there but it is underneath on this beer

M: medium feel about what expected from an IPA

O: Meh I think maybe fresher this beer would have been great but I do not think it is aging gracefully. As the beer opens up the cheese taste and smell dissipate but they are still there
