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.

Poured into a tulip from a 12 oz bottle, clear golden with a large white head. Nose was funky citrus, mostly orange, possibly ripe peach. Taste was bitter, just a hint of sweetness. Overall I was surprised, for the cost it was more than drinkable.

Bottle at New Belgium Hub at DEN. Clear medium copper with a one finger lingering white head leaving lots of lace. Big pine and citrus nose with little malts in evidence. Light toffee makes a brief appearance before the full bitterness with grapefruit and resin evident along with some peach. Medium slick mouth with average carbonation and a long dry bitter finish.

Bottle. Pours light, clear orange with white head. Aroma is grassy, piney, tropical, sweet. Taste has some residual sugar, pine, sweet for style, not a ton if bitterness. Not what I would want from this style.,

Clear reddish brown with a thick head. Lots of alochol that is disguised by the sweet caramel and a nice fruity finish.

Beautiful mix of hops and hops. Rampant is a great way to spend a night taking down the imperial india pale ale.

matthewjk (924) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 14, 2014
A very "safe," but intensely sweet IPA--at least compared to conventional standards. Considering I don’t have much faith in New Belgium, this is a nice standout. Well executed. Serving: 12oz bottle.
