COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rumble IPA is an American IPA with subtle nuance. Brewed with heavy-handed additions of Pacific Northwest hops, this beer is gently aged on French and American oak resulting in a wonderful balance of bitterness, caramel sweetness, vanilla, and undertones of pine and citrus.

Pours clear amber with white head. Smell is smooth, very slightly hoppy and toasty and some oak and vanilla. Taste is initially oak and vanilla with smooth creamy mostly dry caramel flavor and light bitterness that lingers a bit. Doesn’t taste too much like an ipa but the oaked character is clearly evident and is enjoyable. This to me is like a light barley wine. Pretty good and nicely drinkable.

Cloudy yellow gold, light tan head. Piney, resinous, some floral notes. Light caramel notes. Well balanced, but reasonably strong bitterness against some savoriness towards the finish. Thicker body for an ipa. Alcohol has reasonable amount if presence. Fairly acidic. Longish finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured a nice amber color with a thick head. Aroma is earthy, piney hops. The taste is the same with a good lasting bitterness. Medium body. Pretty decent but was hoping for more; this is a little blah.

A really nice mouthfeel to match the flavor. Not overpowering, but unabashed in what it is. Fairly hoppy of course but not crazy aggressive pine come.

CelticJohnny (73) - New Jersey, USA - APR 29, 2014
Served in tulip. Light amber with a finger of white head. Smells of oak and piney. The taste however I was not fond of. Oak upfront but it has a weird soap like taste and a bit of vegetables. Medium palate. This was hard to drink for my taste buds. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a light brown color with off-white head. Oak, caramel, citrus, and pine on the nose; follows onto the palate. Vanilla and caramel sweetness on the finish. The barrels give this a nice quality.

Clear Copper color. Aroma Is peaty, hops and barley softened by the oak. Taste is a bit soapy, and bitter. Oak is there. Not great. ..feels and tastes stale. Disappointed.

cfrancis (2278) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2014
Pours dark copper with a big frothy off white top. Aroma is rich caramel and toffee malts and pine hops. Taste is sweet from the oak and caramel malt. Nicely offset with the pine hop bitterness. Really nice twist to the IPA.

12 oz bottle for 2 bucks. Pours clear dark amber with a white head. Aroma is mostly subdued. I can get a slight vanilla and citrus aroma out of it but not much else. Taste up front has a spike of pine hops leading immediately into a lasting vanilla flavor. Slight hint of the oak aging in there as well. Body is about average but a nice, creamy mouthfeel to it. Overall this is a pretty good IPA. The taste and aroma (especially the aroma) are somewhat subdued, but it has a great flavor. Give more please.
