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.

Ottima Imperial IPA. Lontana dalle esagerazioni che si possono trovare in questo stile. Si presenta di color ambrato con un bel cappello di schiuma bianca compatta. Aroma fruttato di caramello, frutta tropicale e albicocca essiccata. Alcool, dolcezza dei malti e amaricatura ben bilanciati nella bevuta. Carbonatazione scarsa per una facilità di beva quasi pericolosa.

lello4ever (406) - ITALY - OCT 2, 2015
Colore Ambra quasi arancio, bella torbidezza, schiuma minima. Bel l’aroma floreale ed erbaceo, bene le note agrumate, eccellente al palato con un ingresso luppolato molto preciso, sentori di fiori e spezie. Finisce sempre amara, bene l’alcol. Ottima dipa.

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!
