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.

leeburg (227) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Clear golden, white head, standard IPA appearance, but aromas as well as flavors are very unique. Not necessarily in a good way or a bad way. What is this? New plastic packaging type of aroma? A flavor I canít relate to anything. The bitterness is moderate, but the hop flavor is just difficult for me to describe. It must be the Mosaic and Calypso hops... I am not very familiar with them. I sort of think an imperial IPA this different should be marketed as such.

Westmeister (1822) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Bottle. Pours a slightly unclear medium orange splashy white head that fades somewhat quick. Nose is pineapple, citrus, mango, some booze. Taste is tropical fruits, bar soap, citrus, peach, comes off a bit harsh, green even. Palate is medium full with lingering soapy bitterness. The flavors of a great iipa were there but didnít quite all come together.

shadey (1910) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 2, 2013
22oz. Clear golden pour with quickly diminishing head. Aroma is mild west coast hops with a light honey character. The hops are at the front of the flavor with the lightly sweet malts in the middle of the tongue and a dry hoppy bitter finish. A nice bright ipa.

On tap at the Draught House. Golden-amber with a white head. This is a very nice IPA. I get some nice biscuit malt notes, as well as some tropical fruit and orange citrus. As the beer warms I also get some perfume character. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
