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.

ChainGangGuy (4600) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - APR 12, 2013
12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a clear, golden-amber body with a frothy, receding, white head.

Smell: Odd, onion-scented overtones with resiny, citric tones beyond some additional fruitiness. Bolstered pale malt base, faintly sweetish in the nose.

Taste: Sugared pale malts, boosted somewhat, but, then dosed with a conspicuous vegetal quality and a few drips of camphor oil. Some resinous, some citrusy touches, but the preceding flavors override these tastes. Moderate bitterness. Drying, bitterish, camphor oil finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-carbonation. Feels a tad oily moving across the tongue.

Overall: I left work early on Friday to head home and enjoy some music, fun, and beer. Two oughta three ain’t bad, I guess.

Solid DIPA; and a good beer for the price too. There are many better, but it has a different hop profile than most hop bombs; and its very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a glass bottle into glass cup. Nice golden color. Not very much head. Beer has the hop/ bitter taste.

The smell of the hops are great. I feel like 30 min into a brew dew, sticking my face deep down in the brew kettle and inhaling. It’s got a real pungent aroma, which I’m seriously digging. When i take a sip, I get the bitterness from the bops, the aroma from the hops, but none of the flavor. For a DIPA, it falls flat there. the malt character is totally caramel. No smokiness, no deep malt backbone. What I get most is caramel and hop aroma/bitterness. I’m digging that I can walk into a low end grocery store in chicago and pick up a 6 pack of DIPA for less than $10. However, if this had a stone or dogfish logo on it, I’d be suprised. Value 7/10. BTW, the 8.5% was a pleasant surprise.

I like this. Far from the best I have ever had, but the flavor is good and the palate is there. So many of this style can be harsh but this is drinkable. Big floral hop aroma and good flavor of bitter hops with light malt sweetness, but the hops are prominent. Gold color with a lacing head.

HighWine (955) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - APR 8, 2013
Tap flight at Flying Saucer San Antonio. Full disclosure, expectations are on the floor for this one. Only Mikkeller seemes to disappoint me more with new beers. Light golden pour, well laced translucent white head. Tropical, dank, and lime citrus aroma. Taste is lime leaf, papaya, and malty sweetness. Much sweeter than expected, in fact. Better than expected but very sweet. Syrupy in the mouth

smaynard6000 (837) - Apopka, Florida, USA - APR 7, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours clear amber with massive creamy white head. Nice citrusy hop aroma. Predominantly bitter with a bit of peach. Dry finish. Kind of in between IPA and Imperial. Good.

Tasted at Battle of the Brews. Pretty hoppy and bitter. Decent but not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
