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.

Bottle: piney, citrusy, earthy, aromas on the nose, and flavors of peach and bitter fruit. Great pure hop taste. Pungent, bitter, and clean. (Others have stated all of this.). An excellent easy to enjoy imperial IPA with a dry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Off dry, not sour and medium high bitterness. Rich, dense flavor. long. Balanced. Big flavor. Creamy. Moderate carbonation. Lots going on. Pleasant IPA. Not excessively green rather fruity.

Pours a clear golden yellow with a thin, white head with large bubbles. Aroma is a slightly sweet with a mild bread, tropical fruit, and resin. Taste is on the bitter with notes of pine, resin, tropical fruits, and a slightly sweet, resin finish. Medium body and carbonation. Resiny/syrupy texture. Overall tasty.

Rampant is an aptly-named brew. This hop-forward ale gives you piney, citrusy, earthy, and slightly fruity aromas on the nose, and flavors of peach, ginger, and a subtle candy sweetness from the malt. Most of all, though, Rampant showcases pure hop taste. Pungent, bitter, and clean. In fact, this brew seems more bitter than its 85 IBUís would indicate. In the end, Rampant isnít the ballsiest, most expertly balanced, or most innovative Imperial IPA. And thatís totally fine. Itís an excellent hoppy beer from a fantastic brewery. Damn easy to drink, too.

BeerInHeaven (365) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 15, 2014
pours a rich clear amber gold with a nice foamy white head. Definite pine aroma. Tastes hoppy bitter with a hint of orange zest. great long bitter finish with good nasal linger. Exactly what I like. Good beer.

Pours copper, full head with strong citrus and floral notes. First taste is reminiscent of Asian cuisine with great hop presence but also a nice balance. Flavor is best once beers temperature comes up. Notes of ginger, grapefruit, and vinegar. Delicious beer but more balanced then expected. Hop presence isn?t quite "rampant."

12 oz bottle. Pours gold with bubbly white head. Aroma is piney and a bit fruity sweet, bit of bread. Variety of hops come through. Peach is there but minimal. Malt balances well. Finish is more piney than bitter.

Pours a dark almost amber crystal clear yellow with 3 fingers head in my tulip glass. Nice piney aroma with a background sweetness. Light spiciness and citrus notes in the background. Heavy resiny hop bitterness right off the front. Light malty sweetness in the middle and finishes with again spicy hops. Not overly fizzy with medium mouth feel and a slightly oily texture.
