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.

Fatehunter (1690) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Poured from bottle into a "satan" beer glass. Transparent amber color with 1/2 inch of head. Smell: Slight banana, vanilla, floral hops and oak. Very pleasant. Taste: Like a normal IPA, except mellower. Moderate bitterness. Palate: Crisp and ends dry. Very good. IPA drinkers will enjoy this mellower version. You can probably enjoy more without your taste buds getting burned out like they do with normal IPAs. Those who usually avoid IPAs because of the bitterness should try this version out.

April 2015 bottle drunk 8/18/15.
I tried to keep up on Great Divideís beers for a long time, but they just pump the damned things out so quickly that Iíve long since kept current, but itís nice to try a new one now and again...that being said, I was curious about this one, if not so hopeful. The appearance is a lovely burnished copper, good clarity and a creamy, light beige head atop with good retention.
In the nose, however, not that it smells bad, thereís just a ton of strong, sourdough-like oakiness and even more caramel. Smells very barleywine-like to me and much stronger than a 7.1% ipa. While the PNW hops are certainly there, adding light pine, plentiful orange rind and grapefruit, all of their potential brightening edge is sunk in to the caramel and oak and it seems round, sweet and heavy.
The mouthfeel, unsurprisingly, is very supple from all of the malt; at least there are no harsh/astringent wood tannins. Carbonation seems appropriate, medium-light but nicely tight/engaging. Obviously not meant to be compared exactly as an IPA, but even taking it for what it is, itís just a lot of dull caramel sweetness, big toasted oak flavors and some misplaced bitterness and acidity from the hops. If you like over-the-top barleywines.....

Draft to taster pour avg gold with moderate white head. Nose slightly dank, some light floral hop, but not to strong. Taste strong slightly astringent bitter up front. Dank and slight vegetal mid palate mixed with sweet malt. Light bitter finish.

Pours a hazy unfiltered golden amber. Medium body. Great hop flavor, vanilla, and oakiness. Bitterness to end slightly stale towards the end of the beer.
