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.

Boy this one sure doesnít do it for me. The belgian style yeasts combined with the hopped up flavors of an imperial india pale ale just donít mix. It gives a very bitter after taste that I just donít like. Thumbs down. Now what do I do with the rest of the six pack?

Pours clear gold with a huge frothy white head. Dank musty aroma with citrus notes. Orange, lemon peel, grapefruit, and tropical fruit flavors. Smooth mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Finishes very dry.

Good balance of hop bitterness and fruitiness on the palate, with nice white peppery spice notes mingled on a light citrus aroma. That beguiling combination of sticky sweetness and dry bitter bite that I like in an IPA, at a surprisingly low price.

One of my favorite NB brews ever. Bold and aggressive with apricot, plum, bitter pine and a hint of mushroomy funk. Round hop flavors, and a drying finish.

Clear amber with a lasting head. Good amount of visual carbonation. Aroma of cane sugar and a little hop. Fair amount of hop bitterness on the initial sip but it seems to fade with subsequent drinks. Sticky sweet lingering finish. I was hoping they would put a little more effort into this one.

Bomber. Body is a clear reddish gold and supports a massive head at first... Well over half the glass is foam. As it dies back it leaves lots of suds stuck to the sides. Aromas are quite nice. Resin and pineapple seem to dominate with a little bit of oranges and other fruits that are in the background. Flavor is not quite as good as the nose in my opinion. The beer seems to be oddly balanced, with a big resiny punch right in the nose and then a slow fade to honey and almost pear and booze. Finish is warm and boozy and the beer just seems rough around the edges. Itís an interesting beer, but not one of my favorites in th style.

On tap. Colour...clear amber with a very thick white head. Nose...lightly hoppy with some citrus notes. Palate...quite frothy with loads of citrusy hops and dry earth. The centennials are certainly at the forefront with the hops!

Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Nice IPA flavors and malt. This was a big beer so be careful it will hit fast. Nice malts I was impressed with the addition of Centennial hops.

Pours a clear goldish-yellow with a thick head from a bottle. Aroma is alcohol, citrus. Flavor is some roasted alcohol. High Grav Indeed.
