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.

Taster at brew haha - nose is citrus. Sip adds lemon peel and a malty backbone. Fairly bitter. Somewhat light for the style.

Davros (1897) - 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.

On draft. Dark golden color with almost no head. Earthy taste at first that explodes into tropical fruit. Very good beer.

hopscotch (9064) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle... Clear amber pour with golden highlights and a small, creamy, off-white head. Decent retention. The bouquet is a fruity, spicy swirl of honey, cantaloupe, mango and pluot with a subtle mélange of ground pepper - white, green and pink. Medium to full-bodied with a lightly creamy mouthfeel and adequate carbonation. The flavor is fruity, spicy and medium-bitter – tropical fruits, melons and caustic peppercorns. Bitter, abrasive, dry finish. I would have enjoyed this more without all the spicy, peppery hops. They mauled the fruity components.

Thought it was a little hard on the throat. Loved the bubblegum, butterscotch, and clove hints, though.

1 citrus, grapefruit, and lemon. vegetal as it warms 2 golden to light copper, quickly dissipating white head 3 high bitterness with just a hint of toasty malt sweetness. very dry finish 4 medium body with a medium-high carb level. long bitter finish 5 A nice imperial ipa with a boatload of hop character. not sure of the vegetal aroma, could be a bad bottle.
