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.

New Belgium gave up a little of the flavor and complexity with this one by going for an 8.5% abv. The Ranger IPA does have more complexity to it. However, this is still a great beer. Great taste and a mild, pleasant bitterness.

Very nice aroma. Good color and taste but goes not have the happy flavor of the Ranger IPA ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a light copper color with a thin white head. The aromas are grass, citrus, some light floral. The mouthfeel is dry bitter and has a meady heavy body with good carbonation. The flavors were a little lacking on this one. It kinda fell flat for me. Cheers!

Clear, copper colour with a nice white head. Nice fresh aroma, mostly hops with some pine notes and toffee. Nice mouthfeel, rich, a bit oily feel to it. Taste is soft, some bitterness but mostly it’s malts. It’s a very nice IIPA.

Man, this one was bitter. I don’t shy away from bitter, but it was like an overripe grapefruit rind. Tart and clingy on the tongue. It wasn’t horrible, but wouldn’t be my first choice for a DIPA.

Not as impressed with this DIPA. Looks great and smells nice but just a little too unbalanced.

edwardbass (652) - Illinois, USA - DEC 25, 2013
A lighter-than-usual double-IPA, though it has the sweetness factor working. Sweet with a pretty intense hop bitterness. Not a heavy malt sweetness, but more like very light syrupyness. A decent DIPA with a lighter, less sweet characteristic compared to others. Good, but not great.

Tap at The Bar in Rothschild. Pours amber with lasting off white head. Rich hops and IPA finish. Full bodied. Love it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
