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.

Definitely an ale for hopheads. Nice light golden color with a small head, the aroma of the hops is pronounced. The taste is very overbalanced with hops knocking out any nice malt taste. This is only for those who like the taste of hops over everything else.

Classic golden color, smells slightly malty and hoppy. Good carbonation level. Very clear beer. Taste a little sweet from the malts. It's is hoppy but not over powering the malts. It is a little grassy. Not a bad IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JMerritt (1931) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Bottled, as part of the New Belgium fall sampler pack. Pours clear gold with a massive and frothy white head. Spruce, grapefruit rind, white pepper, apricots and mild alcohol aroma, with spicy hops, mild bubblegum and zesty fruits really popping at the tail end. Grapefruit, peach, soft leather and pine flavors with a sweet grain base. At times the hops tasted a bit grassy and abrasive, but the sweet fruits helped balance it out. A touch of alcohol in the finish which ultimately ends a bit sticky. Really well done.

Pours clear amber with frothy tan lacing head. Aroma is dominated with stonefruits, apricots, must, and hoppy citrus. Taste is moderately to heavily sweet with an oily bitter finish. Not a the best imperial IPA that I’ve had but still pretty good.

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2013 I’m pretty much speechless. What a terrific IPA. Mild peach flavor with a bit of a bitter hoppy aftertaste. Love it.

Pots a light golden color with just a slight white head. Has a piney citrus hop aroma and a similar taste. Nicely balanced bitterness, solid malt back bone and full of hoops. A great beer. 6 pack from Kroger after late night at work.

Location: 12 oz bottle from Spec’s - Houston Galleria, 9/24/13

Aroma: The aroma has some grass, pine, and citrus hops, to go along with a biscuity malt
Appearance: It pours a dark orange color with a large beige head and medium lace
Flavor: The flavor is fairly sweet and malty, with some plus bitterness as well
Palate: The body is medium-full, it has a decent mouthfeel, some stickiness, and a dry finish
Overall Impression: I was a little disappointed by this one. This wasn’t a bad DIPA, but I was expecting a better example from New Belgium. It lacks the fresh hoppy feel of the better examples of the style.

Burnished gold, thin white head. Nose is tropical fruit, little Belgian yeast. Bitter. Middle is alcohol, green leaves, slightly camalized malt, slight mango. Finish is bitter, a little medicinal. Seems somewhat unbalanced to me.

Colore ora con schiuma fine e abb persistente. Aroma di erbaceo troppo accentuato che disturba l’olfatto coprendo tutto il resto. Al palato la cosa non è così percettibile a la birra risulta godibile. Si sente bene il fruttato, l’erbaceo, l’amaro secco donato dai luppoli.

Bottle poured into a shaker. From notes. Pine and caramel with a decent citrus kick and a hint of tropical fruits. Very good.
