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.

BMan1113VR (7820) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 13, 2013
Bottle. Pours with a clear golden hued body with a very large and retentive white head. Great lace. Aromas are of grass (strong) tropical fruit, berries and green papaya. Hugely grassy and spicy notes with some unripe peach, melon, herbs and sweet orange. Flavors are a touch to sweet on the malt, very juicy and full hop flavors with grass, mango, papaya and mosaic like berry character. Finishes quite bitter but not harshly so. Medium dry, bitter balance. Lively carbonation, medium low bodied, lightly boozy. Pretty solid and definitely worth drinking if you know the freshness date of the bottle (which is provided) or keg.

notalush (4765) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 13, 2013
Light copper pour - thick, soapy head that shrinks to a sticky lace - moderate clean sweetness in the nose serves as a base for pungent hop aromas of citrus, mango, pine - medium body, fairly soft carbonation - the flavor is much like the aroma - clean sweetness up front, some tropical flavors - becomes quite bitter through the middle, with peppery and pine-like hops - bitterness gets to be a little much in the finish, but otherwise this is fairly clean, simple and enjoyable - I’m surprised I like it as much as I do.

cbfobes (2270) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 13, 2013
Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a clear golden amber with a thick white head and nice lacing in the glass, looks nice at least, the aroma has a little bit of melon mixed with some pine and hops, nothing crazy but seems ok on the nose, the flavor has some melon and citrus on the front end with an astrigent finish, kind of a weird mouthfeel, had me going until the finish really, thought I would like it but just doesn’t blow me away by any means, probably the only sixer I will be picking up. Watch out future trades, this will probably pop in as an extra.

Patrickctenchi (3401) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 13, 2013
Pours nearly clear, pale copper-gold with a tall white head. Tropical/orange aroma..peach... Taste is softly peachy, orange-peel....very soft herbal and floral notes and feel. Alcohol is very well hidden. Very nice.

bookman10 (621) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - MAR 13, 2013
Pours a pale, clear, copper with a mid-sized head which dissipates rather quickly, leaving lots of nice lacing on the glass. Strong pine and citrus-hop aromas. Very bitter bite to the hop-citrus flavors. Just a touch of sweetness underneath it all. Finish is pretty bitter, too.

unclemike (2213) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - MAR 13, 2013
citrus and pinetree nose, slightly feety. Shimmering amber, medium head. Mango, greenery, grapefruit peel. Rosehips, pronounced in the finish. Very dynamic and complex, unique tropical notes not found in most IPAs. Drinks very green, as if it had been wet-hopped

aplus01 (71) - North Carolina, USA - MAR 12, 2013
aroma - spicy, black pepper, piney and fruity appearance - crystal clear light gold color palate/taste - medium bodied with heavy bitterness. hint of alcohol heat. moderate carbonation with a dry finish overall - a wild combination of aromas and flavors that on paper seem like they wouldn’t blend well but the result is pretty great. recommended.

Tap at Meridian Pint. Pours a clear, deeper golden. Weaker head formation. Nose is light mango, fresh melons. Taste is herbal, very chemical heavy with overpowering lemongrass, bathroom cleaner. Chemical mouthfeel.
