Brew Review: Pyramid Outburst
Location: Seattle, Berkeley, Portland
Type: Double IPA
Availability: Year round
Aroma: Sweet hops
Appearance: Hazy, creamy beige head, and bright orange
Body & Texture: Tingly upon first sip. Sweet and alcohol in the mouth.
Aftertaste: Sweet and bitter
I'm definitely not impressed by this one. I wouldn't buy it, and I wouldn't drink it if it was offered to me. My dad bought me and himself one of these too try, and I don't think he was impressed either. I was barely able to finish my glass, which was probably around 6 ounces. It was off balanced in that it was too sweet for a Double IPA. You could tell in the aroma it was sweet, but I was really taken back by how truly sweet it was. There isn't much a brew review here, because I wouldn't recommend this beer to anyone, but I thought I should share anyway. I was disappointed, because I hadn't had a Pyramid beer is years, and I was eager to give them another shot, but I definitely won't be buying Pyramid in the future.
Have you tried Outburst?
