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.

On tap at the Crescent Moon. Pours light amber with a white head. Now I can see what all the hub- bub is all about. Great blend of both citrus and floral hops to the aroma. Amazing hop balance of its to the medium and perfectly blended orange and chocolate Malt body.

Bottle. Pours a bright copper color with a thin white head, very little lacing. Oak and vanilla in the nose with a floral hop undertone. Caramel sweet to start, rounds out with a touch of malt, very slight hint of vanilla, and finishes with grassy hops. Very smooth, very little carbonation. This is the little brother of a big barrell aged IPA, it has all the characteristics of a really big beer but toned down a couple of notches, making it a bit more quaffable. I really like this, well done.

Slightly hazy orange pour with a nice white head. Aroma is soft citrus and caramel. Flavor is moderate bitterness and sweetness, not as complex as I was hoping... very low, almost non-existent oak/vanilla, which is too bad. Could have done much better with this one -- Great Divide can do better.

mixmasterob (937) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 28, 2010
Bottle, bottled 10 days ago, fresh! Poured a nice looking copper, small sticky white head, left tons of lace. Aroma was an array of floral hops, vanilla, wood and absolute deliciousness. Flavors are very well developed. Lots of wonderful hops flavors, some earthiness and a bit of fruit. The oak left its mark well giving this some vanilla like sweetness in the finish, spot on. Super well rounded, almost creamy like mouthfeel, decent carbonation. Top shelf.

raphael (954) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 28, 2010
Lumber, resiny hops and pale malt aromas. the mix of oak-tinged pale malt and sharp citrus-metal hops doesn’t quite work for me, especially with a hint of mint. Tongue numbing while feeling a little flat (from bottle.) Clear greenish amber with a modest but lasting khaki head.

GTAEgeek (1390) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 27, 2010
On tap at the Brick Store Pub. Pours a hazy orange color with a substantial head. The aroma is distinctly hoppy, with notes of citrus and flowers. The bitter flavor from the hops is not balanced, but at least mellowed out by some light malts and the oak flavors. Notes of pine and vanilla are present, but not overwhelming. A creative and surprisingly good IPA.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - AUG 27, 2010
12 oz bottle from Sixteen Tons. Clear amber pour with a well retained one finger white head. Smells of caramel, oak, light citrus and some vanilla. Flavor is a mild citrus explosion up front, braced with vanilla and caramel and finishes with a bit of oak that seemed a bit chalky in the first bottle I had, but was much improved in the second. I liked this one aight.

Bottle - I am not usually a fan of oaked IPAs, as the oak tends to smooth out too much of the assertive, spicy character of the hops, leaving the beer tasting more like a stale IPA - however, GD seems to have found a balance here between the smooth oak tones and the spicy, earthy hop character, especially in the finish - moderate oak and vanilla - a bit of caramel sweetness through the middle - smooth and creamy throughout - finish has some lingering vanilla, but is mostly peppery hops - some citrus and melon - I would like to see a variation of this beer with some New Zealand hops, like Nelson Sauvin - I think they would really compliment the oak - still, pretty well done.
