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.

Clear light amber with heavy hop aroma and flavor. But it’s unbalanced with strong floral hops and little to back it up. Good overall, but not great.

New Belgium’s play on the Stone Ruination as the name suggests. A bold ale and enjoyable if you like the idea of a Ranger IPA with bolstered nuts. It is just that in my opinion. A very good brew not in the class of Stone Ruination.

BoostIPA (1103) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - JUN 19, 2013
Pours a clear bud heavy color with a pretty good sized white head. I could smell the dish soap as soon as I took the cap off. Aromas of soap, grass and citrus fruit. Tastes like grapefruit mixed with gasoline. Pretty fucken average.

ross (2052) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Bomber. Brownish colored pour with a white head. Smell is hoppy, citrus, grass, pine, etc. Smells pretty good. Taste is basically a let down with it being kind of sweet and not as bitter as I hoped. Alcohol is pretty ruthless as well. Not really my kind of double IPA.

rumproasts (2586) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 16, 2013
bottle. Amber with small head. Pretty standard double IPA. Mild malt base with big hops. Seems more piney than citrus. Certainly not bad, but I have pretty high expectations for New Belgium.

RedSox2004 (1139) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Crystal clear copper gold with a bright white fluffy head, nice retention and lace. Big cutrus and grassy hop notes on the nose - orange peel, peach and a touch of candy sugar. Bitter hops up front, with a gentle caramel malt sweetness to keep it in check. Medium body, lively carbonation, creamy smooth on the palate, and a crisp bitter finish.

Bottle: Poured a golden color with a fluffy white head. Aroma is floral. Taste is wet thin grain with light hops bittering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
