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.

My introduction to imperial IPAs. Ironically enough, it's the sweetness and not the bitterness that turns me off to this particular beer. The hoppy bitterness is indeed intense, but I find the overt syrupy sweetness that I'm sure was intended to balance the bitterness out ends up making the taste worse. The burnt copper color struck me as unappealing but the head and lacing was nice. I also did appreciate the dry and relatively clean finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

ROGUE (2145) - Newark, Delaware, USA - OCT 6, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a dark golden color with hints of copper and a one finger thick white head that leaves a trail of lace. Sweet syrup like notes coupled with bigger pine and grass aromas. Taste is very pine hoppy and grassy with a lingering sweetness. Clean creamy flavors with little alcohol presence. Medium-bodied, smooth, with lower spritzy carbonation.

pnesbit (96) - Marietta, South Carolina, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Bottle pour of a clear light copper with a lacy white head. Aroma of big grassy piney note that mellows as it warms to let the sweeter notes come through. Taste of smooth grassy hops that leads into a malty peachy sweetness. Med body with a hoppy finish that gets stronger as it warms. Over all very enjoyable IPA that just ha a touch of sweet fruit to keep things interesting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This was a pretty decent beer by New Belgium. Easy to drink a few and nice that it's easy to find nearby. - AY
