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 Rampantís finish is bone-dry.

Aroma of malt and some hops. Maybe mild piney hops, some citrus. Malt and sweetness balance is nice. Some citrus hops but different than the grapefruit citrus? Flavors are well balanced. Just a different hop profile than I am used to. Maybe peach hops coming through. Like this one more as I drink it. Good ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

malrubius (2014) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Bottle from Albertsons North Scottsdale. Clear gold with lasting head and lace. Citrus aroma with some bready malts. Toasted bready malt sweetness with hints of honey and ripe peach. Medium assertive woody and citrus bitterness with dry finish and some lingering fruity woody hops. Nicely balanced without overdoing the maltiness or the body. Excellent.

Not for me. In many ways should shape up to be a great brew, great color nice lacing, good aroma. But itís all about taste in the end and this one to me was "trouty." Yep, as in the fish. could just be me. Iím sure others will love it. Hope I didnít ruin it for anyone.

BobbyAnalog (334) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 19, 2013
Almost expertly hoppy, which is bizarre considering how meandering and toothless New Belgiumís other IPAs are. Efficient nose and a quasi-herculean bite from a company not known for their bitterness. Decent substitute when other, grander india pale ales are not available.

A nieceís first birthday party is always made better when the hosts provide beer. Pours a touch dark for style with decent white head. Scent is piney and fresh. Taste starts slightly bitter and moves into an enjoyable sweetness. Well balanced mouthfeel. Bottle - Nieceís Birthday Party

Brenhophead (638) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 19, 2013
650mL bottle. Pours a silky clear golden honey colour with a small but dense white head. Tropical stone fruits on the nose with a hint of toffee in the back ground which also follows through the the flavour with a deep bitter resinous finish.

Best by 14JUL13 Golden, one to two fingers of light creamy foam, excellent clarity. Smells of grapefruit, peach, resin, pine, honey and a little bit of mint. Tastes sweet, hoppy, peaches still there, resin, some alcohol, a bit of grapefruit pith. The malt is sweet and manages the assertive hop character. medium bodied with tight and pleasant carb and an off-dry finish. Strong work New Belgium, I think this is a little too fresh (*gasp*) and that with a couple more weeks the booze will calm and the hops will meld just a touch more creating an outstanding beer - and at just over a dime an oz will be hard to beat!
