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.

12 oz bottle...a worthy DIPA (and especially at the $10.69/6 pack price) I didn’t taste the ’heavy peach tones’ as advertised, but rather the usual citrus/pine, however, nicely dry on the finish.

Very nice very drinkable DIPA, clean fresh, piney grapefruit. Well malted. Superior for the style. Grapefruit coloured body. Thanks Duff.

yngwie (13946) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 31, 2013
Bottle, 12oz. It pours a clear, dark golden body and a finger-thick, dense, off-white head leaving some cute curtains. Immediately after popping the cap, the wonderful scent of aromatic American hops hits the nose, with grapefruit, green pine cones and a generic citrusy touch. Some malty scents and a little alcohol too, but not much. It’s quite full-bodied, with a nice level of carbonation. It could maybe have had a bit more bitterness, but then, it’s not so sweet that it needs it. Grapefruit and pine cones runs the rest of the show, lasting for a good while. Overall, most definitely a beer I could have again, a quite balanced and easy drinkable IIPA. 130831

FlacoAlto (3810) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 31, 2013
A vigorous pour into my New Belgium globe glass produces a three finger thick, pale, off-white colored head. The beer is a bright, amber color that shows a brilliantly clear, almost metallic, copper hue when held up to the light. The beer smells brightly of tropical fruit, and then earthy herbal notes, as well as a touch of spicy hop character. Big guava notes, black pepper, lychee, peach syrup, and some floral apricot notes as well as pine needle notes, perhaps a hint of menthol, but the fruit hop notes are definitely the dominant notes here.

Bitter up front, and through to the finish as well, but there is a hugely expressive fruit character, and a woody pine note. Notes of floral peach syrup, concentrated guava notes, woody peppery notes, and lots of herbal leaning lychee. The malt character is purely supporting here, it barely provides some light cracker like notes, perhaps a touch of caramelized character, and just enough malt to accentuate the expressive, dominant hop character. The body is light, but still has some texture to it, definitely on the light side for an Imperial IPA, but that makes it all the more appealing.

Much nicer than I was expecting, the expressive hop character with its vibrant fruitiness, biting bitterness and light herbal notes that are done at a low enough level that it doesn’t get in the way of the other notes.

Tmoney99 (10985) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 30, 2013
Bottle shared by Dr Silverworm. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy citrus and earthy aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and lively carbonation. Moderate to heavy complex bitter flavor with a moderate to heavy complex bitter finish of medium to long duration. This is a solid beer.

phaleslu (6701) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 28, 2013
Draft at Falling Rock Tap House. Pours a fairly pale, fairly cloudy gold color with an inch of white head. Notes of grass, citrus, leaves, straw, pale and sweet malts, and dry earth. Light-medium bodied, with a smooth, earthy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Unusual DIPA. I liked it, though.

hotstuff (4236) - Indiana, USA - AUG 27, 2013
Rated on 8-23-2014 (Bottle) When poured, the head is large, smooth, white and has a good retention. The body is transparent, spotty amounts of lacing, and slow rising carbonation. The Aroma is malty, some caramel, some peach, lightly earthy, and citrus hops. The Taste is lightly sweet, malty, mildly bitter, malty, citrus hops, and finishes very dry. The Palate is dead stop dry and this is a medium bodied beer. Overall, this is beer is quaffable and is a beer for hopheads. It is a bit too hoppy for my liking.

valpoaj (635) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Pours a clear, deep golden/amber - quite light for the style...1 finger white head slowly recedes. Aroma is bold and very hop forward. What I found interesting is that it wasn’t blatantly ’piney’ or ’citrusy’...a nice blend of hops with some biscuity malts mixed in made for a very nice, slightly sweet nose. Flavor is also well balanced...sweet malt notes up front turn bitter mid-drink...ending on a bitter hop note...a roller coaster, but a gentle one. I definitely catch the peach notes late drink...other resinous hops and citrus hops as well. Palate is smooth, but with some carbonation. I really enjoyed this DIPA...easy drinking and not too big on itself, it fits the style nicely!
