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.

This is an excellent IPA. Lots of hops that gives a really great hop bite to it but with the extra malts keeping them in check it is not too overpowering. Grabbed a 6 pack and they really hit the spot on a hot day. Will be picking up a whole lot more next time I am at the store to get me through summer. This is my new favorite summer IPA.

Boutip (4828) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2013
Tap: Poured hazy golden color ale with a large white foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma consists of fruity floral hops with some nice peach notes and some light residual sugar notes. Taste is a good mix between some peachy and fruity notes with some bitter notes in the aftertaste and also some residual sugar. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Love the hops mix on this one with great fruity notes.

Draft at gold nugget. Strange aroma. Beautiful, light gold that is mostly clear with beautiful sheet lace. Soft and creamy with lovely hop flavor. Alcohol burn. Excellent.

12 oz. bottle - Pours a crystal clear copper color with a one finger thick off white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is pine, resin, and light floral hops. Flavor is pine and floral hops, and toasted malt. Finish is fairly bitter, but doesnít linger too long. Medium body. A good beer.

wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Pours medium orange and clear. Frothy, white, standing head. Nose is fresh spicy citrus up front with a heavy background of sweet fruity hops and some malt sweetness. Flavor is grapefruit rind blended with some mild caramel malts, bready malts, and all kinds of fresh fruit complexities. Smooth bitterness but starts to linger on your palate. Enjoyed this beer.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a dark gold color with nice clarity. The head is a nice-looking three finger offwhite shade. It has a good frothiness to it, and also retains very well. Plenty of lacing is left on the glass. S: I half-imagined this would be similar to a bigger version of Ranger, and the herbal hop tones mixed with biscuity yeast told me I was right. Thereís something not entirely right sitting with me aromatically that I canít put my finger on, so Iím docking points. T: I donít like how the biscuity flavors interact with the hop profile; it almost creates a vague ammonia-esque flavor. Anyways, this unpleasant flavor fades away right before the middle of the brew, being supplanted with light piny qualities, a touch of citrus, and caramel malt. At first, Iím not enthused by the opening flavors, but they do fade away leaving a reasonable but unassuming DIPA. M: Dry and crisp. The finish washes away some of the less pleasant notes well, which helps inspire additional drinkability. This is probably the best feature. O: I was expecting an imperialized Ranger, and I got an imperialized Ranger...for better or worse. Like Ranger, I could see this one being significantly better on tap. The dry, easy drinking nature does an okay job of covering up its flaws, but there are still far superior options out there that you should pick up instead - and not even its price point can sway me otherwise.

Fatehunter (1340) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Poured a big (too big) foamy head. Clear, medium straw colored body. Nice aroma of pine and lemon; a little blunted grapefruit. The taste is a dry pine bitterness throughout with an underlying sweetness that takes the edge off the bitter. Nice balance. The texture is crisp with low to moderate carbonation. Excellent.

alcaponejunior (438) - Texas, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Clear and tan, big white head that had good staying power. Nose has tons of sharp hops notes, very earthy, slightly solventy, slightly metallic. Flavor is intense bitterness, lots of strong hops flavor, some tropical fruit, plenty of earthiness, and again, a slightly metallic note. Body is dry, medium, with pretty good carbonation and a strong bitter finish. Overall itís pretty good but doesnít really stand out. The slightly metallic notes and intense bitterness without a lot to balance it out. Itís not something I can drink more than one of in a sitting.

brokensail (11371) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Clear golden orange pour with a nice white head. Grapefruit, pine, and floral hops. Bright citrus, a touch of pineapple, and some pine. Lightly grassy and sweet. The flavor is dry and crisp with just a hint of bread sweetness. Grass, flowers, and lots of grapefruit zest. Some orange, pine, and a little bit of bitterness on the finish.
