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 Rampantís finish is bone-dry.

Beaver (1469) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 4, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours clear straw gold with a big fluffy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is a lot of plasticky onion with some dank peppery hops and a little sweet malt.

The flavor is a little sweet bready malt followed by a ton of vegetal plasticky green onion that has decent bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and a bit watery.

Overall, I donít care for this at all. Itís a bunch of watery onioney / garlicky hops (summit?). Like a very poor manís Gubna. From reading other reviews, I wondered if I got a bad one, since all I get is onion and no fruity piney hops. But the 6 pack tasted the same - I dumped one of them. It tasted similar on draft too, just more subdued and watery.

jercraigs (8666) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 29, 2015
2015-08-29. Lightly hazy dark golden body, nice large creamy off-white head. Aroma is mild at first, perhaps a bit cold. Light fruit and grass, pale malt. Flavour has a sweet core, good amount of bitterness that grows in the aftertaste, moderate fruit and light green hop character, mild grassy notes. Light tropical fruit and grassy resin as it warms? Moderate alcohol throughout seems amplified by the bitterness, which is cumulative. Smooth average plus to medium bodied palate. 3+ Enjoyable Bottle from Ye Old Spirit Shop, Frederick, MD.

luttonm (3307) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 23, 2015
Bottle in Seattle. More golden yellow, rather clear, some white foam. Clean, grassy resin hop. Mild by my standards but very inviting. Resiny dense first sip, medium bitter with good juicy, thick resin. Drier finish. Pretty darn nice.

altonbrownd (3956) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - AUG 20, 2015
Bottle from Chevy Chase Supermarket. Nice amber body with medium head. Nose is plenty of hoppy, citrus and peach. Taste is also hops, caramel, lots of spices. Really nice.

Aggiebob (337) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - AUG 15, 2015
Bottle: Clear orange gold with a very faint white head and lacing. Aroma is fruity - grapefruit and apricot. The flavor also has some caramel maltiness to it. The taste is slightly bitter with an astringent finish as well. Very good IPA.

TheBuke (2) - FISHER, AUSTRALIA - AUG 11, 2015 does not count
Nice hoppy taste, however there was a slight metalic taste out of the bottle. Despite it being a strong IPA it still has a light drinkable taste. Nothing wrong with it at all, but i wouldnít write home about it.

ContemplateBeer (1777) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 6, 2015
12 oz. bottle from Bottled; drink by date of 8/9/15. Aroma: Moderate peach that tends towards acetone; moderate to heavy sweetness; lighter herbal quality. Appearance: Light copper pour with average carbonation holding up a foamy white head; the head eventually settles into a lightly bubbly skin. Flavor: Acetone is more noticeable than in the nose; sweetness is still going strong, and even increases towards the finish; herbal hops come in more toward the finish, but do nothing to quench the sweetness. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, average carbonation, lingering/bitter finish. Overall: Iím guessing this would be much better fresh, but itís still within date... it shouldnít be this bad. Would not recommend purchasing so close to the bottleís "drink by" date.

Benzai (10613) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 2, 2015
Sampled from bottle @ Leuven Innovation Beer Festival. Clear golden color, small white head. Smell and taste malts, hops, perfumy, sweetish, lightly bitter. Hmm not a very good DIPA.

alexanderj (3423) - Branson, Missouri, USA - AUG 1, 2015
Bottle. One of the best values around. Poured a copper color with a touch of gold; compact frothy head. Aroma of citrus, sugar, grapefruit, and fruit punch. Flavor was vibrant, if not abrupt. Orange and citrus and earthy. Briefly strong hops but mild finish

deyholla (8347) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 26, 2015
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.

bhenning (14) - Indiana, USA - JUL 25, 2015
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
