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 a clear red. Smells hoppy and fruity. Tastes fruity and hoppy with an unremarkable finish. Solid beer.

DialSquare (3399) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 11, 2010
Bottle from a sixer - Liquor Loft. Copper pour with a thin off-white and spotty stick. Aroma of caramel malt and wood. Tastes are malty, pine, tinny, oak and caramel. Finishes sharp bitter with the tinny again. Ok.

thornecb (4824) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 11, 2010
Pours deep gold into a Sam glass. Bright white head recedes to skim surface. Resin, grapefruit and mild oak aromas. Dark, rank oak upfront turning to resinous oak in the lasting finish.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2013 fresh bottle. caramel amber color. nose is medium-light honey-accented oak, not as harsh/bright as new but not as subtle as french, so the mixture makes sense, but it seems to lean slightly to the new american oak side. makes me wonder if the goal was an american-version of the traditional oak cask-shipped IPA to india. the few attempts to recreate the authentic character of that beer have been similar to this: oak seems to add to and amplify the toffee and caramel malt flavors while it tempers and mutes the fresh hop character. the results is something that, while having something resembling freshness, is just a but too syrupy, sticky and woody for my tastes.

Oh my oh my. Took a chance with this one and I’m very glad I did. Definitely one of my new Autumn favourites. Pours a clear yellow orange, like a filtered hefeveizen. Small white head, but when it disappears it leaves a nice film on top of the beer. Smell is enticing and curious. I get wafts of fresh cut grass, bouquet of flowers, wood, and orange peel. Taste is a great combination of floral hops and oak, with a solid backbone of wood and pale malts. The citrus returns only a little on the tongue and in the finish, but is a tad dominated over by grassier hops. Mouthfeel is a little oily, but I can forgive that, since it’s a nice well rounded and full bodied experience.

ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - SEP 10, 2010
12oz bottle, dated 8/25/10, from grape & gourmet. pours a clear, golden copper with a one-finger, fizzy, white head leaving drippy lace. aroma is very nice with big, fresh, piney hops, wet grass, leaf piles, and light orange citrus with subtle hints of earth, toasted wood, vanilla, and nutty malts. flavor is quite tasty as well with clean, crisp hop notes of orange, lemon, and pine resin nicely balanced by sweet, woody vanilla, caramel malts, and roasted nuts with a dry, bittersweet finish. palate is medium bodied with high carbonation but has a creamy feel owing to the vanilla. overall, another tasty ipa from great divide. this may be a go-to sixer for me.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 10, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2010 12 oz. – Clear orange-amber, creamy white head. Citric-pine aromas ride a steady dose of dry wood and hints of earthed vanilla. Strong hop flavors are very well balanced on a dry crisp oaken vanilla-like finish. A touch of caramel rounds this out to near perfection. Medium bodied with prickly carbonation. Gives Oaked Arrogant Bastard a run for its money (especially in terms of 6 pack price point). Well done Great Divide…

HonkeyBra (3728) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - SEP 9, 2010
Translucent amber pour with some bubbles around the rim of the glass and in the middle. Aroma of oak, nuts, tropical fruit, some sugar. A few caramel and toffee notes. Flavor is a bit too sweet, lots of fruity, caramelt, vanilla sweetness. Some slight resin bitterness. Palate’s pretty thin, with average carbonation. Really way too sweet to be rated too highly.

The beer pours a deep brown color with a flat carbonation. The aroma starts grassy and finishes piney. The beer shows loads of vanilla and finishes with a earthy feel.

ruskiimperial (308) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 9, 2010
This poured a rich clear amber with a finger’s worth of head which quickly dissipitates. The aroma is very heavy on the pine, with some lingering sweetness as well. Taste is very sweet, vanilla like up front. The aftertaste has a good bit of pine like hoppiness to it. The sweet and the bitter balance each other out quite well in this brew.
