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.

Bomber. Pours a burnt copper orange color with a small head. Aroma is citrus with light pine and resin. Taste is citrusy and light and drinks rather easily with some pine and resin notes. Finishes on the same tasting notes with some mild lingering. Nice. Quaff Score 8 /10

Draft: great head on the glass. Great aroma with a pine smell. The balance between the malt and hops are spot on. This is a great double IPA.

spacemonster (77) - Igo, California, USA - JAN 31, 2014
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.

umich03jm (1926) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - DEC 14, 2013
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 Iíd 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, itís 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.
