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: 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.

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.

Bottle. Nice copper brew with pillowy white head and decent lacing. Pungent resinous hops with chive and a touch of pine and a vet faint whiff of sweetness. No real sweetness in the flavor- resinous, bitter, and dry. Slight graininess. Slow in the mouth but not because its thick- more of a combo of carbonation and warmth. Nice bitter finish. Just like I like it.

Pours murky gold with a medium off white head. Aroma is off the charts - citrus rind, grapefruit, pine, mango and maybe even guava!! Awesome!! Taste is a well balanced blend of the above fruits & a smooth DIPA malty background laced with a little black pepper bite. Truly complex & well made. There’s a clean fruity sweetness that maintains throughout the palate along with a pleasantly smooth & chalky mouthfeel. One of the BEST Imperial IPA’s I’ve had!!

A lot more malty than other ipa’s I have had. Not a bad thing. Super aromatic. Love the hop punch in the taste buds.

22 oz - Rock solid top to bottom, color wonderful, lace wonderful. Tell it to be a little more rounded out. I’d like to see a change from sip to swallow.

Bottle split with mcberko. Pours golden orange with a tiny head. Aroma of piney hops, some tropical fruits, quite similar to Pliny. Flavour as mentioned, with some spices thrown in there there like nutmeg. Gorgeous.
