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.

Bottle thanks to Ben! Pours a clear pale gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good of resin and pine with a bit of onion and a grain backbone. Flavor combines earthy grain, pine and a bit of resin with some grass underlying.

Great smelling hops and caramel. Color is a warm, inviting, mellow amber. This is one smooth brew. Foamed well. Citrus notes and a twist of bitterness but in just the right amount to balance it out. New Belgium does it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Swaroga (1756) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 22, 2015
A very decent DIPA. It was a bit old but still just before the end date. Aroma typical for a heavily hopped DIPA with an extra zest and soap. The flavor is zesty and resin but since this wasn’t completely fresh it went strongly into malt side with a sponge cake background. Still nice stuff.

rdixon77 (1581) - Georgia, USA - JUN 21, 2015
Nice mass-produced big IPA. Dark golden color. Aroma is peachy and piney. The taste is very dank and very sweet, with lots of peach and malt. A little much for me, but not too heavy considering the abv. Good stuff.

thefederalist (298) - Jonesboro, Arkansas, USA - JUN 16, 2015
bottle. Pours clear golden with a medium head that dininishes quickly and doesn’t leave as much lacing as I’d like. Aroma is pure grass, very thick and hop-forward. The taste is slightly sweet, moderately bitter, slightly salty. The mouthfeel is a tad too thin and there are some phenolic notes in the finish. A little rough around the edges for NB.

One of the better mass-produced IPA's that I've tasted. Definitely a good choice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sebletitje (7801) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 10, 2015
Bomber bought @ Leuven Beer Innovation. Dorée-orangée léger, col fin blanc crémeux. Arôme offre un profond bouquet houblonné oscillant sur le résineux, renfermé, fruité et herbacé. Palais offre un profil malté pâle caramel qui se fait présent alternant un côté résineux avec une petite douceur fruitée de pêche. Retrouve un léger fini pin, malt cara pâle avec une note herbacée et pointe herbacée sur la fin.

Thechasm442 (400) - Wilmington, Illinois, USA - MAY 31, 2015
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.

Gelblich, leuchtend. In der Nase Honig, Kiefernnadeln, minimale Säure. AM gaumen direkt bitter, recht trocken, harzig, etwas dünn, ok.
