COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A burly and bitter Imperial IPA, Rampant pours a pure copper and carries the sheen of a rightly hopped beer. The Mosaic and Calypso hops bring stonefruit to the front seat, and the addition of Centennials nod towards citrus for a well-rounded aroma. The taste expands these hops with heavy peach tones and a profoundly bitter bite. There is some malt sweetness to stand this beer up, and Rampant’s finish is bone-dry.

Pours a clear, deep golden/amber - quite light for the style...1 finger white head slowly recedes. Aroma is bold and very hop forward. What I found interesting is that it wasn’t blatantly ’piney’ or ’citrusy’...a nice blend of hops with some biscuity malts mixed in made for a very nice, slightly sweet nose. Flavor is also well balanced...sweet malt notes up front turn bitter mid-drink...ending on a bitter hop note...a roller coaster, but a gentle one. I definitely catch the peach notes late drink...other resinous hops and citrus hops as well. Palate is smooth, but with some carbonation. I really enjoyed this DIPA...easy drinking and not too big on itself, it fits the style nicely!

hfmejias (659) - Dover, Delaware, USA - AUG 23, 2013
22 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured a bit hazy, amber a decent head on it, lots of lacing on the glass; the aroma is not so strong but it is definitely hops. Taste is very nice, hoppy, a bit spicy and citrus like, some malts in there too. Very good beer and very enjoyable.

thedm (4924) - Fort Wayne, USA - AUG 23, 2013
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy fine to large sized white colored bubbles that were very long lasting and left behind a typically carbonated transparent light orange colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The weak aroma was hoppy and musty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a medium hoppy aftertaste. The tasty flavor contained notes of hops. A wonderful best in class brew.

wheresyourball (481) - El Cajon, California, USA - AUG 20, 2013
On tap. Pours golden in color with a thick head. Nose is fruit and hops. Taste follows with a dry, bitter finish. Atypical for a DIPA.

maekchu (1943) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 19, 2013
Bottle. Big citrus and concentrated toffee nose. Medium straw, two-finger rocky head. Very nice caramelly and peach initial / hops dominate the mid palate, but not too much, and warming alc. emerges / hops are the main thing in the final, and it goes to a nice balance (not really "dry." as they claim). Heavy and chewy body. A good solid imperial IPA.. Probably the best beer I’ve had from this brewery.

DrSilverworm (5917) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 17, 2013
22oz bottle, thanks to Mike L. Date on bottle reads 11-Aug-13. Shared with local raters. Totally clear golden orange color. Good thin white head. Plenty dots and bits and short ropes of lace. Bigger body. Smooth, kind of creamy lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Nice lightly spicy, zesty orange peel, light grapefruit. Interesting hop profile, balanced with an equal amount of malt. Light caramel malt, but not sweet. Mostly stronger bitter. More bready malt. Lightly spicy hop bite in the finish. I liked this much more than expected. Really interesting, unique hop profile. Surprisingly easy to drink, too, pretty smooth.

TOSG55 (219) - Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear straw-amber with minimal head. Muted aroma - a bit of citrus hops, alcohol, and some sweet notes. Flavor is very hop-driven - a lot of citrus, and fairly bitter. A bit of malt helps balance things out. Not bad, but a bit dull for an Imperial IPA.

12 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark gold with a nice two finger off-white head. Very good retention and nice lacing left on the glass. Aroma is citrus, grass, and malty. Taste is citrus and grassy with hoppy bitterness and not much malt present.
