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 Rampantís finish is bone-dry.

really wanted to like this, but in short itís very much like a bigger hoppier version of the ranger IPA. has that candied sugar-y aspect to it, with a touch of weird fruitiness and bubblegum or something. when found fresh at least it satisfies in the bitterness regard, has a nice bite and long finish. but the rest of the beer is just a little too "fake belgian" for me to give a high rating. We all like imperial IPAs, but with all the other great double IPAs available I donít know why youíd go back to this one other than itís a decent price and comes in 6 packs.

bubbleflubber (1779) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUN 4, 2013
Pours almost golden-brown into the glass, with a nice foamy lasting head that leaves thick, soapy lacing. The nose has lots of earth and floral notes, and just a hint of soap and tomato as the brew opens up. Flavors are of pine resin, some honey, a cross between citrus and melon, lots of zest and peel in the finish, followed by an appropriately lingering peppery-pine bitter to close the pull. The ABV is well-integrated, but does provide just the slightest bit of heat in the throat. The full-body rests on semi-active carbonation to go down well on the palate. Decent IIPA, but I donít know if there are enough characteristics of a "classic" to hunt it down again.

On tap - great DIPA that has a bit darker coloring than Ranger and more hops and booze

Piney and crisp citrus with a bit of stickiness. Pretty good without being overly hoppy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On Tap. Pours a clear golden slight amber. Ample white frothy head. Aroma is mix of bright citrus and hops. Taste is blend of citrus and maybe some peach detected. Slightly bitter, dry finish.

dreamflower (565) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 1, 2013
Bottle shared with northropfrye. I didnít care much for this. The appearance is nice, but it has a weird tinny taste. Offputting aroma. This isnít doing it for me.

northropfrye (2140) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 1, 2013
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.

Darwenus (533) - Virginia, USA - MAY 31, 2013
Not surprisingly, this is like a more aggressive version of New Belgiumís Ranger IPA. Itís 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.

Draft. Clear deep golden color, white head, solid lacing. Aroma of light citrus. Taste is fruity, bitter, dry.
