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.

Bottle thanks to BMan1113VR: Pours a clear bright orange with a well-lacing spotty white head. Has a sharp citrusy grapefruit hoppy nose with some light malty sweetness underneath and floral pine. Starts with a fairly-full pale malty sweetness quickly giving way to a fresh resiny hop flavor and bitterness before finishing slightly drier, crisp and bittersweet. It masks its alcohol fairly well and has a powerful hop profile.

riversideAK (5738) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - FEB 6, 2011
Nose is nice and fruity, lots of grapefruit and orange as well as pale malt sweetness, hints of sugars are here and there. Pours golden orange, nice clarity, nice head retention. Very fruity initially, nice malt hop balance creates a fruity iipa. Citrus, grapefruit, orange, pale malt, light floral and pine notes. Lingering citrus skin resin notes. Nice drinkability, not overly sweet, well balanced. Very good stuff.

22oz bottle from BevMo. Lightly hazed golden orange with a fluffy off white head, nice lacing. BIG nose of Citrus and resiny hops, light malts in the back ground. Medium - heavy bitterness on the palate. A very underrated IIPA in my opinion.

doubleo (1432) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 16, 2011
Bomber from Hi Times. Pours clearish orange with a small white head that leaves good lace. Smells musty and earthy hoppy with some citrus. Tastes astringent and sweet and musty hoppy. Not that great. I guess its the malts that are weird. Medium body, subdued carbonation.

DYCSoccer17 (3510) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 24, 2010
22 ounce bottle purchased at Nugget in Roseville, CA. The aroma on this is basically sweet and mostly candy sugar. Maybe a little citrus hop in the nose, but not much else besides that and the sugar. Transparent copper with a nice frothy off-white head that is pretty resilient. Starts a little sweet with some sugary malts, before this becomes pretty toasted and almost burnt in the middle. Some soapiness is also in there. Finishes with some grapefruity hops that are mildly bitter before a harsh ethanol burn. Yikes.

Big delicious Double. Excellent lace, nice hazy orange. Beautiful beer. Damn good. Malty, creamy, grainy, perfection. Super grapefruit beer. Grapefruit rind through out. I just had Brew Dog Hardcore IPA and Rampage wins hands down. Super super delicious from beginning to end.
