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.

Rampant is an aptly-named brew. This hop-forward ale gives you piney, citrusy, earthy, and slightly fruity aromas on the nose, and flavors of peach, ginger, and a subtle candy sweetness from the malt. Most of all, though, Rampant showcases pure hop taste. Pungent, bitter, and clean. In fact, this brew seems more bitter than its 85 IBUís would indicate. In the end, Rampant isnít the ballsiest, most expertly balanced, or most innovative Imperial IPA. And thatís totally fine. Itís an excellent hoppy beer from a fantastic brewery. Damn easy to drink, too.

pours a rich clear amber gold with a nice foamy white head. Definite pine aroma. Tastes hoppy bitter with a hint of orange zest. great long bitter finish with good nasal linger. Exactly what I like. Good beer.

Pours copper, full head with strong citrus and floral notes. First taste is reminiscent of Asian cuisine with great hop presence but also a nice balance. Flavor is best once beers temperature comes up. Notes of ginger, grapefruit, and vinegar. Delicious beer but more balanced then expected. Hop presence isn?t quite "rampant."

12 oz bottle. Pours gold with bubbly white head. Aroma is piney and a bit fruity sweet, bit of bread. Variety of hops come through. Peach is there but minimal. Malt balances well. Finish is more piney than bitter.

Pours a dark almost amber crystal clear yellow with 3 fingers head in my tulip glass. Nice piney aroma with a background sweetness. Light spiciness and citrus notes in the background. Heavy resiny hop bitterness right off the front. Light malty sweetness in the middle and finishes with again spicy hops. Not overly fizzy with medium mouth feel and a slightly oily texture.

I am trying this for the first time, actually on my train ride home from work. Iím not a big fan of Fat Tire, so I was a bit apprehensive about this one. Overall it rates on the better side of a lot of Imperial IPAs Iíve had lately. I am drinking it right from the 22oz bottle, so I canít speak much to the color and appearance. The aroma is a bit doughy and not as hoppy as I like, so I was initially concerned, but the aroma doesnít carry over to the taste. Overall itís a good beer that I would likely try again just to make sure.

Nice appearance, but this is still one of the most disappointing New Belgium beers I have tried. The bitterness is too much for the dry finish. This was my second attempt to see if it was different. The mild peach flavor and scent doesnít quite fit. Definitely pales in comparison to its competitors. However, not as boozy as the first time I had it.
