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.

real lovely choice of hops. Very sweet but also very nicely done. I easily caught the mix and a 6 pack was easily consumed with boss freakin’ nachos. This is real close to Hop Stooid but is a bet sweeter. Good stuff.

12 oz bottle served in a tulip. The beer pours a hazy straw colored yellow with a thin white head that leaves decent lacing. Aroma is floral hops up front, with lemon, orange candy, and something somewhat off putting, I just can’t put my finger on it. It’s very sour. Taste is a slight improvement. Tons of pine, grapefruit, and sour lemons. The only problem is, it doesn’t transition to anything. There is no malt backbone to speak of, and it’s a very one dimensional beer. Mouthfeel is average density and it’s somewhat sticky. Mild booze presence. I wonder if my bottle was bad, despite it being fairly fresh. This beer was a let down.

15cl sample from bottle at the Leuven Innovation Beer Festival (25 V 2015). Amber, orange-brown coloured hazy brew with hopped flavours. The beer is a bit hazy, with a small collar on top. Lovely citrus to lemon taste with dry bitter finish. A lovely medium bodied IPA, for sure. Note to myself: try this again - the beer notes were on the brink of getting nonsensical.

shigadeyo (3192) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - MAY 30, 2015
Aromad of peach and toffee with herbal undertones. Clear golden color, frothy off white head, smooth carbonation. Flavor is much like the aroma and bottle description: herbal with hints of peach, stone fruits, light caramelization; moderate bitterness overall. Alcohol is hidden, but catches up with you quickly! Medium body, calm and smooth texture. Very balanced and really easy to drink at 8.5% ABV!

Another beer that doesn’t 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, I’ll leave it there.

Thanks! Sampled 650 ml. bottle @ Leuven Innovation Beer Festival. Pale golden, little head. Nose is onion, very fresh hops, garlic & barnyard raw hops,… Taste is same raw fresh barnyard, onion & garlic hops but it is also oddly sweet on top, sugar & white bread,… Yeasty body,… Not bad but if only it was less sweet & less yeasty.
