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.

rumproasts (4137) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 16, 2013
bottle. Amber with small head. Pretty standard double IPA. Mild malt base with big hops. Seems more piney than citrus. Certainly not bad, but I have pretty high expectations for New Belgium.

RedSox2004 (1443) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Crystal clear copper gold with a bright white fluffy head, nice retention and lace. Big cutrus and grassy hop notes on the nose - orange peel, peach and a touch of candy sugar. Bitter hops up front, with a gentle caramel malt sweetness to keep it in check. Medium body, lively carbonation, creamy smooth on the palate, and a crisp bitter finish.

I had a bomber of this and am glad that I didn’t get more of it. It is good but the hops are muddled and dont go together that well. I want this to be a great beer but I won’t be buying any more.

Bottled. Hazy light gold with a fat white cap of foam that lasts. Herbal, spicy aroma with slight metallic tone. Might have to try on tap. Decent flavor for DIPA but lacking balance; lots of hop resin but too little crystal malt for my taste. Finishses dry with peachy, grapefruit character. I like Ranger way better. May have to try this on tap instead.

Pours light copper with fluffy white head. Muted aroma but it is in plastic. Decent flavor and a good holiness but no real bite. Clean finish. Not bad

Indra (2707) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUN 6, 2013
22oz. bottle. Strongly piney hop nose, some citrus, florals and herbs in the background, only a trace of malt to be found amidst the hoppy, resinous aroma. Mostly clear medium golden in color with a sticky, foamy, lasting head and copious amounts of lacing. Flavor profile is quite fruity and hoppy, some of the above-mentioned peach is there, combined with suggestions of pine, tangerine, mildly peppery spice and a very faint, honeyish malt sweetness that appears about midpoint and fades into a generous dosage of hop bitterness at the finish. Quite active with plenty of fine effervescence on the palate, lightly oily and resinous in feel with a touch of warmth and a medium-full body. Dangerously drinkable for the style, tasty overall. Good IIPA.

onceblind (5490) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Clear golden with a thin white head. Nose is very leafy and floral with lots of hops taking the nose, with perhaps a little hibiscus in there. Flavor is initially full of lavendar and hibiscus, so very floral, but then there’s this piney and leafy middle that brings it down to earth. Not a lot of malt complexity but sweet enough to balance it out.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Bottle from Sam’s, Durham. Ouch. Wanted to be a contrarian and say nice things about this brew, but it’s a pretty poor showing. Soupy gold pour, a depressed looking head. Nose of rotting flowers and canned peaches, with an afterthought of bitter grass. Weird clashing flavors all over the place. If only it was actually "profoundly bitter," as that would’ve been a considerable improvement from this ill-considered mess.
