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.

Bottled. Poured clear, lighter orangey-golden with a tall, creamy, sticky khaki head.. looked great! The aroma picked up fresh grass, citrus, and floral hoppage over sweet honey-kissed caramel and biscuity malts.. well-balanced. The flavor found bitter, resiny peach and perfumy hops throughout, with caramel and biscuity malts supporting.. dried out on the finish, leaving bitter stonefruit and perfumey notes. Medium-bodied with a good feel/flow through the palate.. engaging and enjoyable.

Another beer that doesnít have to stop to change colors. Piney citrus aroma, maybe a hint of malt. Better flavor than Ranger, not as bitter. Next time I see a New Belgium brew in the store, Iíll leave it there.

Pale clear gold, head reduced to rim. Pure fresh citrus hops. Different esters, lupulin. Bitter hops, Thai herbs, floral. Light to medium bodied, hopoil-slick, very dry feel. Excellent IIPA, New Belgium can do it too.

Maakun (1289) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 24, 2015
Bottle at Leuven innovation festival. Clear golden with white head. Lots of herbal hops, marihuana, orange, syrupy sweetness underneath a thick bitterness. Thereís some fruits but this is way more on the dank weed side. Medium bodied with sticky feel. Nice one.

Is it strange that I liked this more, because it wasnít as "perfect" or "stylish" as I thought it would be? It pours a little more cloudy than I had imagines, and smells, well, a little "primitive"? Anyhow, all that abides when you drink it, A real credit to its kind, full hop flavour, one of which Iím not even sure I can say I have had in a beer before, nice burn on the way down, after some sweet notes, in turn offset by the fine strong alcohol. A lovely beer.
