COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We didn’t 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 cat’s 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 that’s 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.

Draft - Tropical fruit and sweet malts. Cloudy orange with a thin head. Orange pith bitterness and sweet malts. Actual pleasant hop flavour is missing.

nice citrusy nose, elements of spicey orange-peel & bold hops. pours a blaze orange with a off-white head that dissipates pretty quickly. Taste is really nice w/a zesty hop-zing and a very nice malt balance. The orange zest really stick around. over-all a very tasty Dipa.

Bomber. Pours a murky amber orange color with a thick foamy head that lingers nicely and leave great webbing. Aroma is musty citrus, fruit cocktail, and pine. Taste is ok. Sweet fruit juice with a mild bitterness. Pine in the finish. Odd aftertaste. Possibly an old bottle but not sure. Ok DIPA.

Bottled: unk Pours golden with a solid quilt of light cream foam. Nose is juicy fruit, a bit too much so, but if toned down a hare, and complemented with just a hint of malt would result in a really fine nose. Nonetheless, I like the nose; I get a ton of tangerine, grapefruit (sweet), orange, pineapple and subtle hints of resin. On second thought, fucken A, good nose. Bitter, not nearly as much flavor as I’d anticipated from the nose. The bitterness is ushered past to reveal, well, body odor flavors. Some peach and weed reside therein. Medium bodied with assertive carb and an off-dry finish. This beer has sooo many qualities that could make it sincerely great. As of now, it’s a decent standby. 3.5/4.5/3.5/3.5/3.5 Serving type: bottle 09-14-2012

Strong malt backbone, which I always like in a DIPA. Less bitter than I expected. The hops are mainly citrus and tropical fruits with some pine, resin, and floral notes. Not the most complex DIPA, but very enjoyable. Lacks the long, sticky, hop resin aftertaste that you would usually get from this style.

22 ounce bomber bought and drunk at the Provisions store in Orange CA. Great artwork of an angry trophy elephant. aroma of wet hops and a slight pine in the nose. Some solid hops hit you smack in the face as you first sip but finishes well. Great beer

On tap @ Tap25. Pours clear, dark orange. Smells of typical good IIPA - sweet, hoppy, citrus and pine. Tastes like grapefruit and orange rind, caramel, with a hop kick at the end. Hops, and malt compliment each other through the taste and finish. Medium carbonation and thickness. Not a bad thing to say about this - wondering why I don’t load up on this local beer at 9%. It’s a great DIPA - just doesn’t have anything unusual that stands out...and there’s nothing wrong with that at all.

22 oz. bottle shared in early 2012. Pours a clear amber color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor had citrus and resiny hops, caramel malt base, lightly toasted bread. Decent balance between malt and hops. Moderate bitterness to finish. Dry.
