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.

fidelis83 (1823) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Clear, straw gold pour with a 2 finger, creamy, off white head. Aroma of very fresh, spicy, citrus and floral hops, nice toast and caramel, stone/berry fruit and hints of tropical fruit. The flavor ditches much of the fruitiness initially, lots of spiciness, some husky grain, sweet cereal, toast and light caramel, then the sweet caramel, crystal malt and fruity hops come in, lots of citrus, some woody pine, a little stone and berry fruit, and some passion fruit. Finishes a little more pine-ish with some crystal malt sweetness and burnt sugar. Medium body, syrupy feel and light, but blanketing and sharp carbonation. Pretty good overall, but it clashes all over the place, too much sweetness and bitterness in the same place at the same time.

BBB63 (5743) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - APR 15, 2014
Single bottle and served in my GI IPA tulip: Pours a clean deep golden hue with a initial huge head and excellent lacework. The aroma is fronted by juicy and dank hop esters like mango, pink grapefruit, watermelon and some resiny notes. Along for the ride is some biscuit and husky malts, dash of Grains of Paradise too. The taste is more refined, moderate bitterness and citrus notes over a layer of basic malts, some sharpened spice tones upon the finish but otherwise a very average DIPA.

bluemooner (586) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - APR 14, 2014
Pours golden with a medium, fluffy, off-white head and some lacing. Aroma is biscuits and piney hops. Flavor is bready malt, biscuit, and piney, citrus hops with some hop bitterness on the finish. Medium body with low carbonation. Pretty good.

kumite56 (469) - Cordova, Tennessee, USA - APR 13, 2014
Since DogFish 90 left Memphis I have been looking for a good IPA alternative. This one is with drinking but not in the DF90 category. Been pours a nice coppery color with a rapidly diminishing off white head. Aroma is nice with notes of citrus. . Taste is heavily hopped , intensely bitter with a moderate malt backbone. Not bad

Lowe1983 (1342) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - APR 12, 2014
Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is pretty light for an imperial IPA. Mostly citrus hops and caramel malts on the nose. Flavor is slightly watery at first but the citrus hops and alcohol warming come out on the finish. Not the best imperial IPA.

SHANER4 (455) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - APR 5, 2014
Bottle-Poured slightly hazy golden color with minimal white head. Aroma-pine, grapefruit, pear and hint of sweet malt. Taste is piney and lemony, a little astringent with pear flavor in the finish. Palate-has thin body and above average carbonation. Finish is dry and bitter. Overall an ok beer, not very smooth but also very drinkable for me.

MaltOne (183) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 5, 2014
Pours yellow gold, nice fizzy white head, which disputes but maintains a lace cap for the duration. Slightly peachy aroma. Taste is distinctive dry piney hops, with an almost smokey malt backdrop. Palate is clean with bit of lingering smoke/pine. Overall a respectable Imperial IPA.
