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

Deep gold, clear, fluffy white head. Aroma of grainy malt with light caramel, resiny and citrusy hops. Flavor of spicy and citrusy hops, some resin, herbal notes, a little lemony acidity, neutral malt with a little lingering sweetness.

Poured a decent Amber. About what what I would expect from this brewery for the style.

Very nice mix. Strong tasty alcohol. Restrained malt without excess weight. Delicious candy hops. A fun beer to drink.

Pretty impressed. Juicy big aroma and herbal hoppy resinous flavor. Smooth mouthfeel. Strong hop but not bitter.

Pouring out a bright golden copper hue with a thick pillowy head a shade off white with tons of sticky lacing that coats the glass. The nose is emphatically hopped with notes of citrus and tropical stonefruit standing out with grassy and hay floral notes. A nice toasted caramel and honey sweet malt in the mid palate that should balance nicely with the mounds of fruity hops and bitter notes on the finish. Beautiful hop and fruity flavours abound with peach, stonefruit, pineapple, grapefruit and pine resin all making appearances. The finish is bitter and crisp with a sticky resinous mouthfeel that adds to the astringency. A bit of warm booziness finishes the flavour profile as moderate hop notes linger into an aftertaste with dry stoenfruit notes.

Pours a clear golden color with white head. Citrus, floral notes, grass and hay on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a little sweetness then turns to hop bitterness.

Ed5388 (2235) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - NOV 29, 2014
12oz bottle from Ptaz. Pours a clear dark golden color with a small foamy white head. Aroma of sweet grain, grass, old citrus fruit, and ripened pineapple. Taste of syrupy malts, sweet ripe citrus fruit, grass, pine, and some booziness.

Bottle. Pour was typical DIPA. Healthy foam head dissolved into a whisper thin ring. Pour has a sheen to it that would suggest a more viscous mouth feel. This was not the case as the bitterness of the forward hops assault your palate. Peach and citrus notes are definitely present but are overshadowed by the bitterness of the hops. Finish was strong but fleeting.

Bottle. Clear medium gold pour, with an off white head. Sweet malt, citrus, bread, a bit sugary, moderate hoppiness. Nothing wrong, it’s just not a very good DIPA.

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.
