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.

jake65 (3234) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Bottle: Bright golden pour with a mountain of creamy head. Tons of sticky lacing throughout. Nose is lightly tropical, but mainly floral and pine. Lots of resin comes through in the flavor and what I would describe as a smooth level of bitterness. Good floral flavors… maybe a little sage too. Finishes easy and the floral hops linger. Nice.

illidurit (2278) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Backlog purge. From 12 oz bottle. Dark orange pour. Tropical fruit aroma, pretty nice stone fruit with citrus accents. Flavor is solvent, concentrated citrus peel, astringent.

boxofrane (2553) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 13, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear amber with a medium sized white head, average retention. The aroma has a mix of pine, grapefruit, some light pineapple, and plenty of astringency. The taste has a medium bitterness that follows with almost a peach or nectarine balance.. some grapefruit on the very finish. Not a show stopped but pretty nice.

UPDATED: NOV 13, 2013 Great beer. Fruity aroma with a floral overtone. Dark orange appearnce with an amber glow. The taste is bitter but it is what sets this beer apart from others.

Light haze on this amber beer. Small pale cream coloured head. Light grass on the snout. Palate is light with good fine minerally carbonation. Light malt base, a little cream. Rich hops - grass, pine and a little skunk. Whisper of mint and tropical fruits and peach. This is very much a grassy, piney skunk IPA. Finishes soft. Effortlessly drinkable!

Jamesthebrit (415) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 7, 2013
A: Very light on the aroma. Citrusy. Looking for more hops. A: Looks light. Crystal clear. Sort of a corn/maize color. T: A little light on the taste. Hops hit pretty well in the middle but not a very complex profile. Finish is light, with a tinge of alcohol which compliments more than takes away. mmm... as the beer warms the alcohol comes through more and takes something away. P; As mentioned many times, light. There are nice notes but nothing big. Overall this is a super average beer. Medium hop profile.... medium/light body. Pass on this one probably.

IndianaRed (3430) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 5, 2013
Bottle pours a slightly hazy dingy dark yellow, with a touch of amber. Full lasting rocky off white head. Big fresh citrusy aroma with some caramelized sugar hints, like a barley wine. Big bitter piney hoppy flavor. Lots of deep sweetness, again like a BW. Not much big bitter bite at the end...trailing of to a little wet papery sweetness. Full heavy slick palate. A pretty big beer, but not as bitter as most DIPAs.

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2013
Small bottle at The Turtle’s Head, San Jose, CA, 27/10/13. Dried apricot aroma with sweet peach and caramel. Dried curry leaf, soapy lavender taste; jam-sweet but with good dried curry leaf balance. Pretty tasty actually. Clear orange amber levelled with white. New Belgium are hit and miss but this hits more than misses.

beaz1591 (238) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 3, 2013
IPA Glass. Nose of citrus, pine hops, great smelling. Cloudy gold, thick velvet head, great lacing, beautiful beer. Creamy mouthfeel. This beer is super bitter. Notes of citrus. Seemed a bit unbalanced in the flavor department.

Cirrhosis (1283) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 29, 2013
Looks like beer. Smells yum, standard, but still yum. Peach to apricot, mild metallics, and gum. So tasty but seems like more of an IPA the a IIPA. Large resin is coming through the longer this sits on the table. This is scary because the slamabilty, I can see just getting totally hammered before you even realize whats going on. I like it!!!
