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.

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

DuffMan (7363) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 8, 2015
Bottle, shared at poker night. Hazy medium orange with a creamy off white head. Big resinous hoppy aroma and flavour, oily texture, long bitterness. Malts give it a bit of sweetness. A solid DIPA.

Braudog (5952) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 27, 2015
Bottle. A frothy monster. Exploded from the cap, hinting at some imperfection. Indeed, at first quaff I get a sense of funk I donít want in this style. Itís a meaty beast to be sure .. rich with caramel malt and beefy hop backdrop. But it tastes homemade. (#5935, 2/27/2015)

Bomber shared by Mike G over some basketball. Solid drink with aggressive west coast hops. You donít get many ipaís like this anymore so it is nice to revisit the old school way to peel enamel off your teeth.

Ernesto987 (4325) - Arizona, USA - FEB 7, 2015
pretty solid, moderate sweetness, moderate citrus hoppyness, pretty old school, a little boring and overplayed but it i what it is

Cybercat (3735) - Georgia, USA - JAN 23, 2015
Pours clear orange amber with a very thick and rather persistent pale buff head. Boldly hoppy aroma has a nice fruity undertone, mainly Mandarin orange plus a bit of apple. Hoppy flavor is quite fruity - orange, apple, pear, even a bit of banana. Hop component is equally woody and resiny, barely bitter; a sweet hint peeps through, as does a bit of malt. Texture is smooth and fairly firm, while tingle is not strong but persistent. Go on a rampage!

jake65 (2810) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 15, 2014
Bottle: Clear copper color and a large finger of creamy beige head. Lots of sticking lacing throughout the glass. Nose is ripe with citrus and tropical fruit, some pine. More pine comes through in the taste, lightly floral, and more of the citrus/tropical fruit. Good emphasis on and use of the hop flavors. Nicely done.

runaway (68) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 29, 2014
22 pours copper with a thin white head. Aroma is of sawdust, orange juice. Flavor has malty caramel, juniper, hops, grapefruit pith with a spicy herbal tea bag bitter finish. Palate is average carbonation, and slightly oily on the finish.

"Not that high in the hierarchy of double iPas but probably the best Iíve had from this brewer. Aroma and flavor both a little malt heavy for the style, but the sweetness is pretty nice. Iíd like a little more in the way of somatic hops, and more of the faint tropical fruit and citrus. Not bad."

Beautiful amber copper color. Intensive taste of special hops. Very balanced bitterness. Resine and fruity aromas . I like it very much . Absolutely to try for IPA lovers .
