COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We didnít want this to be Jagged Edge on steroids. Thus rather than using the same hop combination, we chose more fruit forward hops to balance out the alcohol in the beer. The medium crystal malt adds a very subtle color and sweetness. Nugget and Millenium hops are used to bitter. Citra is a new variety to the market that has some similar properties to Simcoe but a more pleasant fruitiness; pineapple/mango aromas mixed in with pine and catís pee. Centennial brings candied orange and Amarillo adds big grapefruit. The liquid in the fermenter is dry-hopped three times- each dry hop equal in weight to the dry hop of Jagged Edge. This multi-stage dry hopping is meant to layer the different hop aromas. The beer is fermented cool to suppress fusel alcohol development, and dextrose is added to allow it to attenuate out highly, leaving very little residual sugar. The idea was to avoid that syrupy "gumsmacker" effect thatís sometimes found in Imperial IPAs. Other than barrel aged beers, this is by far our most labor intensive and expensive beer to make. Rampage fans are legion and we believe they deserve nothing less than the very best we can give them.

Very piney. "Christmas tree up my nose." Taste follows. I feel like I say that a lot but it really does. Finishes clean and smooth do its got that going for it

illidurit (2279) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 14, 2012
Bomber poured into a pint glass. Orange with a sticky tan head. Aroma is pretty typical. Iím getting tropical citrus with a heavy dose of malt. Flavor starts with toasted malt, progresses toward grapefruit and orange hoppiness, and finishes a bit muddled and malty. Discordant and too malty, but at least itís hoppy too. Squarely ídecent.í

Pours a nice hazy orange color. Huge smell of hops is very present with this one. Very large pine and resin taste with a bitter backbone. I like

Bomber. Well done Imperial India Pale Ale with a big dank hoppy taste. Bitter throughout with solid citrus and pine. Nice malty background to add balance. Finish is a bit too sweet. Overall this is a fine brew. Tasty.

Bottle split with mcberko. Pours golden orange with a tiny head. Aroma of piney hops, some tropical fruits, quite similar to Pliny. Flavour as mentioned, with some spices thrown in there there like nutmeg. Gorgeous.

mcberko (13056) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 23, 2011
22 oz. bottle, split 4 ways, pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of piney and resinous hops, with just enough caramel malt backing. Flavour of lightly spicy hops, resin, buttery hops, and just sufficient caramel malts. Beautiful balance with slight spice. Enjoyed this more than the average.

rmussman (1701) - California, USA - DEC 21, 2011
Sampled in a big bottle. Pours big and brownish orange. Has a bright white head on it. A really aromatic IPA with a big citrisy hit to it. Really nice drinking brew.

Amber in colour, slightly fizzy. Unusual smell, slightly disappointing but not unpleasant taste.

SDalkoholic (2318) - Linda Vista, California, USA - DEC 15, 2011
Bottle from the Best Damn Beer Shop: Poured with a firm yet delicate layer of foamed head while the liquid was a dark honey gold hue that had some evidence of haziness going on. Aroma is completely decked out with a scent of green oily hops that give off some notes of citrus. The flavor is strong of bitter hops and gave me a good buzz plus the price was super cheap.

Leather, pine, caramel aromas. light tan head on clear gold-amber body. Just a little flat, with a nice weight to it. A little more malt in the flavor, hint of powdered sugar, plus pine, oak & alcohol.
