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.

A niece’s first birthday party is always made better when the hosts provide beer. Pours a touch dark for style with decent white head. Scent is piney and fresh. Taste starts slightly bitter and moves into an enjoyable sweetness. Well balanced mouthfeel. Bottle - Niece’s Birthday Party

650mL bottle. Pours a silky clear golden honey colour with a small but dense white head. Tropical stone fruits on the nose with a hint of toffee in the back ground which also follows through the the flavour with a deep bitter resinous finish.

Best by 14JUL13 Golden, one to two fingers of light creamy foam, excellent clarity. Smells of grapefruit, peach, resin, pine, honey and a little bit of mint. Tastes sweet, hoppy, peaches still there, resin, some alcohol, a bit of grapefruit pith. The malt is sweet and manages the assertive hop character. medium bodied with tight and pleasant carb and an off-dry finish. Strong work New Belgium, I think this is a little too fresh (*gasp*) and that with a couple more weeks the booze will calm and the hops will meld just a touch more creating an outstanding beer - and at just over a dime an oz will be hard to beat!

Bottle: Bright golden pour with a mountain of creamy head. Tons of sticky lacing throughout. Nose is lightly tropical, but mainly floral and pine. Lots of resin comes through in the flavor and what I would describe as a smooth level of bitterness. Good floral flavors… maybe a little sage too. Finishes easy and the floral hops linger. Nice.

Backlog purge. From 12 oz bottle. Dark orange pour. Tropical fruit aroma, pretty nice stone fruit with citrus accents. Flavor is solvent, concentrated citrus peel, astringent.

boxofrane (2384) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 13, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear amber with a medium sized white head, average retention. The aroma has a mix of pine, grapefruit, some light pineapple, and plenty of astringency. The taste has a medium bitterness that follows with almost a peach or nectarine balance.. some grapefruit on the very finish. Not a show stopped but pretty nice.

UPDATED: NOV 13, 2013 Great beer. Fruity aroma with a floral overtone. Dark orange appearnce with an amber glow. The taste is bitter but it is what sets this beer apart from others.

Light haze on this amber beer. Small pale cream coloured head. Light grass on the snout. Palate is light with good fine minerally carbonation. Light malt base, a little cream. Rich hops - grass, pine and a little skunk. Whisper of mint and tropical fruits and peach. This is very much a grassy, piney skunk IPA. Finishes soft. Effortlessly drinkable!

Jamesthebrit (346) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 7, 2013
A: Very light on the aroma. Citrusy. Looking for more hops. A: Looks light. Crystal clear. Sort of a corn/maize color. T: A little light on the taste. Hops hit pretty well in the middle but not a very complex profile. Finish is light, with a tinge of alcohol which compliments more than takes away. mmm... as the beer warms the alcohol comes through more and takes something away. P; As mentioned many times, light. There are nice notes but nothing big. Overall this is a super average beer. Medium hop profile.... medium/light body. Pass on this one probably.

IndianaRed (2803) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 5, 2013
Bottle pours a slightly hazy dingy dark yellow, with a touch of amber. Full lasting rocky off white head. Big fresh citrusy aroma with some caramelized sugar hints, like a barley wine. Big bitter piney hoppy flavor. Lots of deep sweetness, again like a BW. Not much big bitter bite at the end...trailing of to a little wet papery sweetness. Full heavy slick palate. A pretty big beer, but not as bitter as most DIPAs.
