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.

Poured from bottle into snifter, surprisingly pale in color for an IIPA, clear pale yellow...like piss. Smells great, packs a bitter punch with little to no aftertaste. Hides 8.5 ABV very well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22 oz bottle pour. Pours a clear golden color with a fizzy head to it. Light citrus aroma with light hops. Decently bitter, good flavor throughout. Kind of a bready malt flavor with a hop finish. Pretty good imperial to go to when options are limited. I enjoy this beer regularly.

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks troubles. Clear golden. Pleasant citric hops aroma. Flavor has light malt sweetness, citric hops and a lingering bitter finish. Medium-bodied. Nice and very easy-drinking for 8.5%.

Poured from a 12. Appearance is lighter than I would expect from an Imperial. The aroma is your standard DIPA with a sweet nose. Flavor is slightly piney balanced out by a nice malty flavor.

33 cl bottle, Ann Arbor, MI, USA. Clear gold, citrus spruce resin aroma. More subdued flavour than I thought, balanced and sweet with citrus and lively hop finish.

650ml bottle to tulip glass, the beer pours a transparent gold color with a bright white head. Aroma is strong and consists of citrus, resin, tree sap, cut grass, slight mint and some floral notes... but a little predictable. Taste is hop forward but doesn’t feel like 85IBU. That said the hop flavour is well done and there isn’t any sweetness to speak of as it’s very faint. Palate wise the beer is quite drinkable. Nice and dry, carbo is medium, body is light. Overall: Nothing super mind blowing but still quite nice. However the bottle is a month past the best before which makes me wonder if that takes from the bitterness a bit. Still a nice drinking beer.

vandc01 (90) - North Branch, Minnesota, USA - NOV 21, 2014
Poured from a 12oz bottle with a date of 3/2/2014 - about 8.5 months old. Aroma - Orangey. What I would expect from an IPA that sat too long. Appearance - Golden color with some a half finger of fluffy white head. Taste - Malty, orangy...medium mouth feel. Palate - sticky and lively. Lots of carbonation. Overall - I know it’s a better beer fresh. My fault for letting it sit too long.

Bjuden av Reza På fat Tre Små Rum. Jävligt god Dipa doft. Smakar granbarr ihop med apelsin äpple å skumbanan. Sällan skumbananen varit så framträdande som i denna Dipa. Perfekt lågt kolsyrad . En mycket högklassisk öl. Krämig känsla i munnen .Denna öl måste letas efter å köpas BUMMS.

MrBeerFanatic (881) - Friona, Texas, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Drank as celebration we were having a boy. Pours a light amber frothy head. Freshest aromas of pure chinook hops, almost like a half an oz was put into the bottle directly. Has the pine, light medicinal herbal aromas and slight peach. Flavors mostly strong pine, slight peach, and some stone fruit. High bitter, lightly sweet. No alcohol noticed.

Very good and very potent IPA. Great aroma and very smooth drinkable taste. New Belgium even calls it bitter, but I did not find it very bitter. Golden in color.
