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.

Bottled. Poured clear, lighter orangey-golden with a tall, creamy, sticky khaki head.. looked great! The aroma picked up fresh grass, citrus, and floral hoppage over sweet honey-kissed caramel and biscuity malts.. well-balanced. The flavor found bitter, resiny peach and perfumy hops throughout, with caramel and biscuity malts supporting.. dried out on the finish, leaving bitter stonefruit and perfumey notes. Medium-bodied with a good feel/flow through the palate.. engaging and enjoyable.

hayduke (3385) - Eureka, California, USA - APR 29, 2013
Got this at an esbls tasting at Strykzones place in Wood Rive, IL. Pours dark fuzzy gold with a creamy and long lasting off-white head. Nose is mostly citrus hops. Medium plus in body, and smooth in the mouth. Flavor is caramel malts with heavy citrus hops and a long dry bitter finish. Very well done.

airrick2003 (516) - Louisiana, USA - APR 27, 2013
Appearance: a crystal clear bronze color, very thick off white dense head, head laces nicely and retains like no other Aroma: grass, bread, piney, fruit, citrus, lemon, smell is pretty strong and very satisfying Taste: some malt up front, bread, some lemon citrus, bitter on the finish Palate: moderate to low c02 level, has a medium to heavy body, leaves a pretty strong bitter aftertaste Overall: delicious, the malt and hops compliment each other very nicely, would like to see some more pronounced hop flavor up front if anything ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Huge amounts of caramel blended nicely with citrus peels and toffee. Hints of cinnamon. Nice grapefruit bitterness. The beer is ultimately hurt as it warms and tastes a bit metallic, but still drinkable.

pinkzambia (1505) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 27, 2013
Tap: clear yellow gold with a white head and sticky lacing. Light citrusy aroma with a bitter taste. Seems to be missing some of the sweetness and thickness of most 2IPAs. Not bad, more like an regular ipa

zmanzorro (128) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 26, 2013
Poured from bottle into DFH/SN IPA glass. Pours a clear golden color with a thick fluffy white head leaving nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is very hoppy with some pineapple and pine notes. Taste is piney upfront and as catch the taste of alcohol as it progresses. Mouthfeel seems a little thin but finishes cleanly.

Faint aroma but pleasant. Weak palate for an IIPA. More pungent than bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
