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 Rampantís finish is bone-dry.

Very peachy hopped aroma. Light brass and effervescent. Initial taste of hops and slight malt. Dry finish. Fairly light for an IPA...just to my liking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: sweet malts, very bitter hops, resinous, some citrus, lots of grapefruit, bit sourish. Aftertaste: lots of citrus, grapefruit, resinous, exotic fruits, lychee, little sweet, malty, bit of caramel, dry ending.

Tap @ sbwf14. Sample. Amber color, thick white head. Piney, grapefruity aroma. Caramel malty with a decent fruitiness. Medium to full bodied. Slightly too sweet perhaps. Decent.

beerbaaron (1259) - Arizona, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Clear light golden amber with a large frothy white head. Aroma muted, like its too balanced, hops donít shine through. Similar with flavor, hops donít really shine through, too sweet. Low bitterness. Not too big or heavy. Decent beer but does not stand out in a crowded style.

BeerdedDave (352) - - SEP 22, 2014
light amber color; wonderful citrusy hop aroma; great, bitter, piney, citrusy hop flavor on a medium bodied bready malt base and a dry, bitter aftertaste; pretty easy drinking for such a high gravity beer

CelticBrew (801) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Pours from 12oz bottle a clear golden-yellow, huge sparkly fuzzy white head. Big bubbles at the surface. Big perfumed nose of orange blossoms, crushed floral notes, slight citrus, creamy hops. The flavour is somewhat spicy, grassy, citrusy, caramel, biscuit, peach orange, and light black pepper notes with a medium bitter finish. Chewy bitter resinous fruit and dank tones. Really nice DIPA..

CacheManyHose (187) - HONG KONG - SEP 17, 2014
From QC. Translucent gold-amber with thick white bubbly head and foamy head. Smells very bitter, piney, becomes floral and caramel malt as it warms up. Taste is, again, very piney and bitter. Dry, especially in the finish. Body is spicy, slightly foamy. A very dry, bitter IIPA.

slowrunner77 (3720) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 16, 2014
A touch on the light side in body and color, but it opens up nicely. Aroma and flavors of peach and tropical fruits, slightly herbal and aromatic, with a dry finish. 7/13-maybe even better on tap brewery fresh...more peach and a denser aroma, but Iíll leave as is. For now :)"
