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.

This is an amazing showcase of hops. The aroma melds citrus, apricots, pineapple and spruce with the promise of sweet carmel malt. It never follows through on that promise; the unrelenting bitterness that replaces it is a multilayered hop experience. This beer gets back to IIPAís origins, hop bomb. They donít need to take the alcohol any higher than its 8.5%, because thereís not supposed to be any "balance." An exemplar of the style with hops that Vinnie hadnít dreamed of when he started down this road.

Pours a clear golden with a fluffy head with some lacing. Nice aromas of citrus and pine. The taste is fruity, peach? Well balanced and complex with some bitterness at the finish. I really like this one.

mkel07 (3356) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 23, 2014
Bottle from The Wine Emporium November 2013. This is a big hoppy beer that takes a bit of work to get through. Citrus dominates the aroma and the finish is long and dry.

Chudwick (2110) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - AUG 21, 2014
Taster at brew haha - nose is citrus. Sip adds lemon peel and a malty backbone. Fairly bitter. Somewhat light for the style.

Davros (1924) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 19, 2014
Pours amber with a large head. Nose shows overt resinous, piny and grassy hops with sweet backing from lashes of clean malt. Very hoppy flavours. Very piny, grapefruit-like and citrussy. Orange peel or orange bitters. A fair bit of sweet clean malt balances things out. Carbonation is too high.

This IMPERIAL IPA is a very piney bitter, citrus tasting beer. This beer is probably only going to be enjoyed by real beer drinkers that enjoy good beer . Not the best IPA but worth a try.
