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.

Poured a slightly hazy orange/amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma is very hoppy with bourbon notes. Big grapefruit notes as well. Taste is quite hoppy with a slight creaminess. The oak flavors are not overdone and they balance nicely with the bitterness of the hops. There is enough malt flavor and apricot to balance the hops as well. Overall very good.

Rich, slightly hazy amber/copper coloured body with a thick dense tan head about two centimetres thick and a nice bit of small bubbles rising from the side of the glass. Aroma of potent fresh hops, a good malt backbone, some light grapefruit and a slight bit of drying oak - not much though. Medium-bodied; Deep pungent hop flavours show first with a good malt backbone, some nuts, caramel and a bit of apricot flavours too. Aftertaste is slightly drying with some floral and herbal tastes and a good hoppy bitterness. Overall, a nice take on a traditional IPA, still showing the good characteristics of an IPA, but with some drying overtones of oak - adds another complexity. Definitely worth trying if you can find this, and definitely preferable to me compared to an imperial IPA! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Bon Vivant Market in Smithfield, Virginia on 14-October-2010 for US$2.75, sampled at home in Washington on 04-November-2010.

Bottle... Poured a burnt orange with a big, frothy, beige head. Aroma was mild, earthy, hoppy with a bit of oats and sugars. Very balanced, smooth, mild carbonation, worty with lots of malt sugars. Toasty, caramel, very sweet probably from the oak aging. Peppery hops. Mild alcohol appearance in the finish.

Clear, copper amber color with a cream-colored head gathering in large bubbles and dressing the side of the glass. Citrus hops, tropical fruit, vanilla, caramel malt, and oak in the nose. Medium-bodied, slick on the tongue and a long-lasting finish. Juicy hops, caramel malt, medium hop bitterness and some oak astringency in the flavor. A wonderfully balanced and pleasing oak aged IPA.

Tasted 11/2/10. 12oz bottle. Bottled on AUG 04 2010. Pours filtered with an amber golden hue. Trace ring of off white head. Aromas of bright citrus and piney hops and a slight burnt sugar woody note. Full bodied with a wonderful base IPA(Titan is one of my favorites). Full of hops with flavors of citrus grapefruit and earthy pine. The oak really adds a dimension to the palate and flavors. The hops are rounded out with a woody, vanilla flavor. Very full and lush with both the hops and the oak shining bright! Both aspects are noticeable yet the overall palate is melded and blended wonderfully! This is a true treat for a Titan lover! Great Divide, once again, hits a bulls eye!

Bottle. Pours light brown with an almost-pinkish hue. Smells very sweet. Some wheat/straw texture. Obvious hops in it, but they’re more subtle. I don’t taste a ton of the usual vanilla notes from the oak-aging, but not that bad overall.

12oz bottle. Soft subtle hops. The wood really mellowed the citrus/pine; still, my tongue is coated in oils. Yum.

12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours clear amber with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of oak, light hops, sweet malts. I agree with this beers description that it’s a nice balance of hops, oak, and sweet malts. A pleasant bitterness at the end. Definitely worth trying.

KyotoLefty (6172) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 27, 2010
Draught at Tadg’s. Aroma of oak, some hops, caramel. Pretty amber color with a thin, rocky head. Oak and vanilla flavors, with caramel and some light grass and citrus hops. Not much hop aroma, light flavor, but decent bitterness. Sweet but not overly so. Light carbonation--almost flat, actually, with a medium to bigger body. Enjoyable and interesting.

Inoffensive except that I know it could be so much more. The aging really doesn’t do it any favors; slight infusion of oak and the accompanying vanillin is not a good tradeoff for robust hoppy flavors lost in the depths of time. This makes two Great Divide wood ipas I’ve disliked, leading me to believe they somehow confused IPAs and barleywines and have mislabelled Old Ruffian.
