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.

12oz bottle pours a clear gold with some frothy, white head. Nose is heavy citrus peel, lemon, grapefruit, some pine, dusty. Flavored of malt, grass, lime zest, grapefruit, pine. Fairly straight forward. I like my DIPAs a little more dank. Decent though.

New Belgium Goblet glass draft pour at Waldo Pizza in Kansas City, Missouri. The pour is a hazed golden orange with a 1/2 inch white head. The aroma is fresh resin hop, pine, and some light tropical fruit. As the beer warms, an aroma of onion skin comes out. The taste is the hops, resin pine, a bit of the onion, in the back it moves towards sweet malt, and a bit of alcohol heat. The palate is medium to light bodied, with soft carbonation, and a lingering hot finish. Good nose, bit too much sweet and booze in the flavor for me.

Very nice DIPA that hides its ABV well. Floral bouquet after a dingy copper, white-topped pour. Surprisingly sweet in flavor. Hoppy notes are present in abundance, with a dry finish. Not getting nearly any bitterness. I enjoy this beer, but it is not your prototypical IPA, let alone DIPA. The anti-IBU DIPA if you will. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle. Rating #215. Wasnít a huge fan of this, I though it was a little underwhelming, mild hops and not much bite too it. (2677)

With the plethora of Imperial IPAs on the market these days, its easy to be a little underwhelmed by many of the offerings out there. This Rampant, however, really delivers the goods, for my taste anyway. The hop selection in this beer delivers a resinous pine, citrus and peach combo balanced with a nice malty backbone. This is a really solid double I.P.A and great addition to, the already stellar, New Belgium line.

BucannonXC5 (990) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 13, 2013
Type: 22-oz. bomber Glass: Manzanita pint glass From: Bine & Vine Bottle Shop in Normal Heights (San Diego), Calif. Price: $5.49 Purchased: March 28, 2013 Consumed: April 12, 2013 Misc.: Best by July 2, 2013 Poured a golden orange color with 2-3 fingers of long-lasting pillowy white head. Bubbly liquid. Plenty of circular, foamy and layered lacing on the sides all the way down. Good retention all the way down, long and lasting. Smelled a potent whiff of bitter hops right way. Not sure about exact hops, but generic hops were a mix between skunky resin, citrus (grapefruit) and floral. All smells come to an abrupt finish. Tasted that 8.50 percent alcohol right away. No hiding that for sure. Taste wasnít really like the smell, except for that massive bitter hops. Seemed to onion or radish, which is something I donít think Iíve ever written in a beer review. Also garlic? Still some resin hops in there, but I guess there is a thing called vegetable hops. If not, there is now. Still some grapefruit citrus hops in there, albeit light. Light-to-medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt, bitter finish. This was an OK beer, but I was expecting something a bit better. It started that way, but the onion, radish and garlic trifecta may have swayed my opinion a bit.
