You might not guess from seeing a fluffy little hop on the vine (or seeing a depiction of a fluffy little hop on a vine on the label of this Pyramid Outburst Imperial IPA), but there is a prickling syrupy sweetness to the buds. That’s the impression we get from this supercharged brew, anyway. The blast of hops invades with ferocity—riding an 8-percent ABV battering ram—and agents of numbing hoppiness cling to those furry outcroppings at the back of your tongue with passion and purpose. Be prepared to still taste this beer with breakfast tomorrow.
