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.

Maris (1011) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - OCT 10, 2014
From a 650ml bottle on 10/10/2014. Pours a slightly cloudy medium golden with a small head. The nose is features some light fruit and resiny hops. Take a sip and you find a decent caramel malt background, lots of sweet fruit (orange, peach, apricot), and marmalade, which is set off against a nice resiny hop bitterness. Itís nicely balanced with the sweetness just prevailing. The palate is a touch creamy and the carbonation moderate. I canít really separate this from the Black Market Liberation imperial I downed last night - itís very enjoyable and well made, but lacks something to make it a really memorable DIPA.

Citrus and tropical fruits in the aroma. Flavor is a little sweeter than ideal, but not heavy. Just a little candied.

TheBear11D (272) - Michigan, USA - OCT 3, 2014
Rampant pours a golden yellow with a decently thick off-white head that lasts a while. The aroma is citrus, floral and peach. The flavor favors the peach more, but the citrus and floral is still present. Overall this is a decent beer.

beerbaaron (1313) - Arizona, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Clear light golden amber with a large frothy white head. Aroma muted, like its too balanced, hops donít shine through. Similar with flavor, hops donít really shine through, too sweet. Low bitterness. Not too big or heavy. Decent beer but does not stand out in a crowded style.

BeerdedDave (503) - - SEP 22, 2014
light amber color; wonderful citrusy hop aroma; great, bitter, piney, citrusy hop flavor on a medium bodied bready malt base and a dry, bitter aftertaste; pretty easy drinking for such a high gravity beer

Pours a light bronze. Smells of must and funk. Smooth taste with a slight bitter finish. Nice full flavored IPA
