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.

Hazy orange with a one finger tan head, quickly fading into a thin layer and lacing the sides of the glass in the process. I catch the oak and hops right away upon opening. Caramel, citrus, vanilla and floral hops notes round out the finish. Taste is a nice mix of hops and malt with citrus and floral hops taking the lead with a strong malty backbone. The oak is there, but subtle. Notes of orange creep in as it warms. Mild to medium bitterness, nice effort.

Pours a nice dark brown. Has a Smokey oak taste with hints of vanilla malt and a nice strong hop after taste. A very nice beer.

20101204 12 oz bottle from State Line, bottled 8/25/10. Tiny khaki head over medium amber beer. Aroma is full of C-hops, good grapefruit pith with mild resinous notes, a bit cat-pissy as it warms. Lighter bodied than I would like, but not surprisingly so I guess as wood aging seems to sometimes do that to things. Quite mild sweetness and the wood addition seems to add mostly a soft vanilla background along with actually a fresh peppery oak that is almost cedar-like. In fact, the more it warms, the beer is actually starting to remind me of Hitachino Japanese Classic, and thatís definitely a good thing. I was prepared for disappointment with this one, and perhaps purchased it more with a train wreck mentality than enthusiastically, but itís turned out to be a very pleasant beer.

Indra (2607) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - DEC 2, 2010
12oz., bottled on 9/10/10. Resinous aroma features elements of juicy, citric fruit, oak, pine, lightly honeyish, sugary malt sweetness and lighter notes of pineapple, tangerine and vanilla. Hazy light-medium amber golden color with a very fine head and lace. Flavor profile is nicely balanced, with sweet, very lightly toasty, sugary malts, bright, clean bitterness and fruity, citric, resinous hops, and lingering notes of oak and vanilla, finishes refreshing, resinous and drying. Very smooth and lightly oily palate, low in carbonation with a medium-full body. My rating for this might not be super high, but I must really like this stuff a lot because since I discovered it about 6 weeks ago, Iíve picked up three 6-packs, which for me is nearly unheard of. I guess it just makes a less run of the mill alternative to your standard IPA, and I think its very nicely pulled off, the oak being fairly subtle overall.

Sammy (8566) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 28, 2010
Bottle from Premiere. A study in oak more than IPA, and maybe because of the bottling since August. Mid yelow body with a generous white head. Woody aroma, and taste. Creamy finish, some citrus orange throughout. Decent drinkability.

SHIG (3565) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - NOV 27, 2010
Draft at the Brass Tap: Poured a coppery color with a off white head. Aroma is hops and oak. Very balanced between the caramel malt, vanilla oak, and hops bitterness.

Bottle. Deep amber body. Frothy, off-white head, mostly diminishing. The aroma has notes of tropical fruit (mango) and citrus including orange and grapefruit, resin, caramel and raw wood. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, sticky texture, lively carbonation. Moderately alcoholic in the finish. The aroma is better than the flavor with the unexpected tropical fruit notes. I prefer a cleaner, crisper IPA and this is more grainy, sticky.

Sweet malty aroma with notes of caramel. Dark amber color with a short lacy head. Bitter and sweet taste. Flavors of caramel, pine, oak, and citrus.

bobaidan (505) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - NOV 23, 2010
Pours somewhere between amber and straw with a small head. Aroma starts as flowers, oak and pine, but gradually shifts to citrus and malt. Medium in body with a nice amount of carbonation. Flavor is quite hoppy with some pine and citrus. Malt sweetness is in the background, but not quite enough to offset the hops. Not bad, but needs a bit more sweetness.

BeerBlockaid (683) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - NOV 16, 2010
Typical Great Divide. Medium-Full bodied, cloyingly tasty IPA with vanilla notes, pin, slightly citric, and tomahawk type hop, with a big character for the nose and a full bouquet. A bit off balanced which hurt it a bit.
