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.

Two fingers of head on a hazy, medium straw colored body. The aroma is a nice lemon and grapefruit... just enough. The taste has a solid moderate to high lemon bitterness that is backed up nicely by the malt profile. Not a touch of sweetness gets through though. The texture is smooth with moderate carbonation. Wow, a solid beer.

Love this beer! California-style Imperial IPA. Huge citrus aroma, light-bodied for the ABV, drinks way too easy. The hop blast in my nose always makes my head spin in the best way ever!

tightslice (597) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUL 9, 2015
Bottle from Safeway in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is tropical fruits, pine, marmalade. Taste is candied orange peels. A touch too sweet overall but not cloying or syrupy.

Fantastica birra, profumi fruttati molto accentuati, frutta tropicale e citrici a sprazzi. Al gusto molto amara a chiudere con un piacevole inizio dolciastro fruttato. A tratti anche di ottima beverinita. ---Rated BY Italianbeer85

Thanks Ribafish for sharing this with us at Pivoteka! Misty amber body. Aroma... orange rock candy, malt, slightly stale. Taste... herbal, bitterish, some rock candy, ok, nice, not overbearing, not as stale as it seemed initially. I could believe that this is very very good fresh.

ogivlado (6646) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 22, 2015
Bottled 650ml. -from Vrutak Zagreb. Cloudy Orange/golden coloured, minimal off-white head, grapefruity hoppy nose with notes of caramel. Swet malty, caramel, candy sugar and light grapefruity hoppy with notes of wood and alcohol. Dry bitter sweet finish. Not more than 6 weeks before BBE date, so I need to try it fresh because itís obvious that real hop character fade away.

kajser27 (631) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 22, 2015
Amber colored, a bit hazy, creamy medium off white head. Aroma is of sweet caramel malt with floral, tropical fruit hop notes. Taste is very sweet pale and caramel malt, biscuit, medium floral and tropical fruity to grapefruit hops aroma and medium bitterness. Dry finish and sweet aftertaste. Medium to full bodied, resiny, medium carbonation. Too sweet and malty for the hops to get the attention they deserve.
