can courtesy of JD at beer study in chapel hill.

reddish copper, mild head. smell is extremely fruity and malty, not much hops. the taste starts out with banana and a lot of grapefruit, finishes bitter. very malty, wouldn't really consider it an IPA. but good. medium bodied with mild carbonation.

overall a unique IPA worth trying.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a clear amber color capped by an inch or so of foam; decent retention and a smattering of dots are left behind

Smell: Fruity, with melon and stone fruit tones, as well as some pine

Taste: Biscuity malt backbone with the fruit and pine tones developing in the middle; the combination of the malt and hops produces a rather unusual fruit profile that is almost cantaloupe dominant though there are just enough hops to add piney bitterness that lingers into the finish; rather malty, though

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: With a name like Outlaw IPA I was certainly expecting something different; not bad, but this is way too malt forward for my palate

Pours a clear amber orange with a thin layer of carbonation.

Pine, citrus, slightly resinous, some sweetness on the back end.

Piney, grassy, citrusy. Pretty straightforward.

Light-medium bodied, medium carbonation, dry finish.

Overall, wanted more out of this but a overall well balanced IPA.

A: Great amber, carbonation on top throughout the whole drink, good lacing

S: Delightful, great balance between pine resin and malt, slight caramel

T: hops are not present...the taste is pleasant, but malt forward. Slight caramel, malt, the aftertaste is balanced with a touch of bitterness, but hops are never assertive or really primary.

M: a little thin, not bad, but not stellar.

O: I'm a little torn because this beer is fairly pleasant to drink, overall it's pretty good, but if tasting blind I wouldn't characterize it as an IPA. It's more of a hopped amber ale, or something along those lines. Rather than the hops being held in check by malt, as in nearly all IPAs, this beer feels like the malt-forward beer that is balanced by hop flavor. Fairly enjoyable to drink, but not an aggressive IPA as it is described.

EDIT: flavor profile is more complex and enjoyable as the beer warms.
