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.

Nice aroma and pours kind of a burnt amber. Good hoppy taste but it lingers a little long.

rondphoto (2690) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - MAR 6, 2015
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Very light hop aroma. Clear medium amber color, bubbly white head cover, lots of lace dots. Taste is solid caramel malt with a hint of apricot that adds full-bodied citrus hops on the swallow. But, the hops aren’t strong enough to take over, so both sides move 50-50 to a lingering finish. Overall, a surprisingly lightly hopped brew, or, is it just the strong malt? I like it.

cheap (4482) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2015
Mildly sweet perfumy aroma from a bottle. Oh my, big knuckles in the mouth. Twisting and turning almost fruity, but not, nastie real nastie. Terribly on style. Hey, did somebody forget to wash teh hand soap out of my container? Large as life and bring you to strife. Quite a lick in the face. Knock you down and kick you a few times, Terribly terribly on style, wew. Getting a little dizzy near the end of the session.

Bottle at home while visiting Jacksonville. Sweet overripe fruit with floral/perfumey notes and a nice dankness. Lemon, pine, soap, light caramel, light light ginger, grapefruit... Not too sweet, nicely done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

One of the best IPA’s I’ve had without spending more than I’d want to. This beer is exactly what I look for in an IPA in all areas. Nice and hoppy with a great aftertaste. New Belgium has yet to disappoint me.

RCx240 (113) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 26, 2015
Pours clear amber, foamy white head, decent retention and spotty lacing. Aroma is strongly floral, with hints of pine, resin and citrus. Taste is sweet caramel and nuts, with hints of lime and orange. Finishes with a lingering astringent bitterness, floral notes. Full bodied, soft carbonation, sticky texture. Quite nice.

Clear, golden pour with thick, lasting white top. Aroma of pine. Flavor is pine again, and great malty balance. Very tasty brew!
