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.

Drank as celebration we were having a boy. Pours a light amber frothy head. Freshest aromas of pure chinook hops, almost like a half an oz was put into the bottle directly. Has the pine, light medicinal herbal aromas and slight peach. Flavors mostly strong pine, slight peach, and some stone fruit. High bitter, lightly sweet. No alcohol noticed.

Very good and very potent IPA. Great aroma and very smooth drinkable taste. New Belgium even calls it bitter, but I did not find it very bitter. Golden in color.

Pleasant aroma but the flavor is too one-sided on the heavily bitter pine and has a not so pleasant perfumy taste that comes through again in the soapy texture. Some alcohol shines through on the finish.

nice powerful enough hop character with pine resin and grapefruit as well as other fruits paired nicely with an aged wood and ivy broom straw type flavor component thats been done before and done well here.

Pours clear amber with a small white head. Aroma of straightforward floral/soapy hops. Taste is clean malts with a good balancing of hops. Clean finish and light mouthfeel. This is a decent drinking beer, albeit not as complex as some DIPAs on the market.

12oz bottle 11/6/14 (Courtesy of RSRIZZO)-40° in Tulip-Pours a clear golden with a white head. Aroma of hops, citrus, and malt. Taste of the same. This full bodied brew is fairly well balanced and quite tasty.

benfergy (211) - Valley City, North Dakota, USA - NOV 3, 2014
The Rampant has a light brown appearance with modest head. The aroma has grassy hops; as I sip it gets more complex, with a light caramel malt, plus a juniper note. I usually find IPAs to not be very smooth, but this one definitely is. Rampant is really a wonderful beer.

I bought probably ten 6-packs of this beer in the last few months when it was on sale at Jewel on 13th & Ashland (Chicago) for $8.99. It is strong, cold, and very easy drinking. If i want to taste peach, I’ll buy a peach. I want to taste beer, so I bought this beer. The next time I look to identify sugar residual in a beer will be the first time. People over complicate things sometimes, drink beer, be merry, have a good time. If I’m tasting wood notes I’m usually face down on someone’s deck or making out with a redwood tree, but I’ll find the appropriate website to rate those experiences.

Purchased at Foremost Liquors in Chicago, IL, enjoyed at home on the Saturday where the clocks turn back an hour. Appearance is a clearish gold with a thin white head. Aroma of light hops, not much else. Taste is decent, light booze with a moderate hop profile. Less abrasive than a standard impy IPA, but overall decent.
