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.

Didn't get a ton of aroma. Very slight hoppy smell but not much else comes to mind. Not much head. Maybe More my fault wet glass and my fridge is probably colder than most. The 8.5% abv attracted me to this but I have to say its pretty much a basic no thrills ipa. It's good and great for catching a buzz but maybe not for the one looking for something new. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BillWyce (745) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2014
Poured clear golden-amber with a 1-finger off-white head. Mild aroma of citrus hops with a touch of caramel. Maybe some stone fruit as well. Medium body with a moderate syrupy thickness. Mild astringency to the finish that leaves a moderate dryness. Flavor of citrus hops with a light note of caramel beneath. The citrus switches to more of a peach-like flavor as it warms, with a touch of earthiness that lingers in the finish.

JoeZasada (292) - Beaumont, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 20, 2014
Bomber Bottle. Pours a clear yellow with a moderate white lasting head. Grassy hop aroma. Taste is bitter, with a citrus/grasslike tinge. Finish is slightly sweet with a good dose of citrus hop bitterness that turns dry. The alcohol level is hidden very well. This one is a true IIPA - big on hop bitterness, not overtaken on the malt. Quite nice!

MunBro (518) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 19, 2014
Aroma of citrus fruits and peaches. Tons of gorgeous head and lacing. Entire glass has lacing left top to bottom after finishing. Proper! Huge notes of peach, melon, mango, etc with a sharp hoppy bitterness, a good malt profile and a dry finish.

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.
