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.

Well okay, then. Amber-tinted clear gold with a small white head. Nose of resin, tangerine, herbal and tea notes, ginger, and some garlicky-spring onion notes. The taste showcases the not-so-great latter aromas with an added sweetness. More sweet than bitter. Didn’t like it enough to finish, but it was -- I guess -- drinkable.

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 I’ll leave as is. For now :)"

HKdIPA (235) - HONG KONG - SEP 15, 2014
Bottle from QClub at home. Clear deep golden amber pour. Aroma is deep resinous hops - good. Taste is very very bitter hops at the beginning. Resin and pine. Too bitter and then a bit too sweet before a slight boozy finish. Not bad for the price (~HK$25) but not a DIPA I'd look for again.

Transfer from BA review on 6-9-13 Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance- The beer pours a nice amber color with a two finger white head. The head has great retention, slowly fading to leave a nice level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is sweet and fruity with some nice more citrus and pine hop smells. The sweet is of a caramel mixed with lots of tropical fruits of mango, papaya and tangerine which when mixed with the hop smells is very nice. Taste – The taste begins with a malty and slightly sweet flavor upfront with some notes of caramel and light tropical fruits. A citrus hop is present upfront consisting mainly of a grapefruit but also a little bit of lemon. As the flavor advances flavors of a grassy and light pine hop also come to the tongue. While the sweetness gets a bit stronger in the middle of the taste, at the end it lessens, leaving a rather nice, drier, and moderately bitter flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel- The body of the beer is on the medium to slightly thicker side with a carbonation level that is on the average to slightly lower side. Both are great for the hoppy flavors of the brew. Overall – A rather tasty brew overall with good transitions between sweet and hoppy throughout the taste.

Pours a pale copper color, small amount of foamy head that left rings down the glass. Just the right amount of bittering with a citrusy and dry finish. Very drinkable double IPA.

llcooldave (1081) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Clear dark gold in the glass. Just looking at the glass on the table I can detect aroma notes of Sweet Tarts and tropical fruit notes. Nice bitter citrus flavor with a hint of asprin finishing with a minty citrus aftertaste. Overall, a decent Imperial IPA.

Slight funky aroma. Surprisingly sweet taste with a medium but long-lasting bitter finish. It’s okay but there are much better IIPAs out there.

guzzler67 (1501) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - SEP 10, 2014
Slightly hazed amber appearance with an average size white head and decent lacing. Solid hop aroma featured a lot of citrus along with resin. Flavors as smooth as an IPA until the assertive aftertaste takes command with a dry, bitter, deceptively alcoholic aura. Medium to full bodied, nicely carbonated mouthfeel leading to a lingering finish.

clueo (153) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 9, 2014
The beer pours a very light gold color without much of a head or cloud. It is quite translucent and surprisingly light looking. The smell is fantastic and is quite sweet and fruity with a mild hop aroma. The taste is comparable to the aroma and the finish is quite clean. An excellent Imperial IPA which is easy to drink!

650ml bottle. Pours golden with finger of white head, good lacing. Aromas of pine, citrus some malt. Taste of orange citrus, floral, some spice. But a touch too much alcohol in the back end. Nice bitter finish.
