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.

Sweet resinous aroma, a touch of tomato and chocolate. Golden lagerish looking appearance, though a nice amount of foamy offwhite head and lacing. Taste is a bit on the sweet side for an IPA, a touch of bitterness in the aftertaste, but a lot of that sweet resin meaty taste. Not bad.

Not surprisingly, this is like a more aggressive version of New Belgium’s Ranger IPA. It’s the same clear golden color with a trace of head, and the aroma is big, bitter citrus and grassy hops. The flavor is almost all hops, but the buttery malt in the background is rich and distinct. This will probably replace Ranger as my current fridge stocker, as long as I can keep finding it.

tmoreau (2280) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAY 29, 2013
Shared 12 oz. bottle to rocks glass samplers, showing a deep golden color, a fair amount of white head froth, and clingy lacing. The nose was some sweetness, pine, mango & peach esters, and light grapefruit on the back. The flavor was similar, with the moderate hop bitterness showing earthy, rind-like astringency and some lingering quality. Maybe not enough of a sample, or there was a little age to the bottle, because I didn’t really sense the imperial nature of this brew. A decent IPA nonetheless.

SDalkoholic (2124) - Linda Vista, California, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Bottle: Poured a light golden liquid with a weakly structured cap of foam. This beer appeared very similar to a cheap pale lager, but gladly the aroma assured me that this was a bold imperial IPA that filled the nose with scents of oily green hops that are both fragrant along with a scent of organic. The flavor is bitter with a slight taste of pine and a touch of sour green grape. Has minor finish that is metallic. Solid standard double IPA but somehow it doesn’t leave a lasting impression and taste as though New Belgium has already brewed this exact same recipe before in another recipe.

JaBier (4730) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAY 27, 2013
Bottle purchased at Siciliano’s. Clear gold pour with a thick white head. Aroma of tropical fruit, malt and pine. Piney and malty flavor with some tropical fruit before a grassy hop finish.

This is an excellent IPA. Lots of hops that gives a really great hop bite to it but with the extra malts keeping them in check it is not too overpowering. Grabbed a 6 pack and they really hit the spot on a hot day. Will be picking up a whole lot more next time I am at the store to get me through summer. This is my new favorite summer IPA.

Boutip (4636) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2013
Tap: Poured hazy golden color ale with a large white foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma consists of fruity floral hops with some nice peach notes and some light residual sugar notes. Taste is a good mix between some peachy and fruity notes with some bitter notes in the aftertaste and also some residual sugar. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Love the hops mix on this one with great fruity notes.
