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 Rampantís finish is bone-dry.

Beaver (1301) - 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.

Tap @ sbwf14. Sample. Amber color, thick white head. Piney, grapefruity aroma. Caramel malty with a decent fruitiness. Medium to full bodied. Slightly too sweet perhaps. Decent.

Tap@sbwf14. Golden. Grapefruit green berries. Caramels. Real good rate here. Pretty nice, not too cloying or thick. Fruity hoppy. Drinkable.

beerbaaron (1260) - Arizona, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Clear light golden amber with a large frothy white head. Aroma muted, like its too balanced, hops donít shine through. Similar with flavor, hops donít really shine through, too sweet. Low bitterness. Not too big or heavy. Decent beer but does not stand out in a crowded style.

BeerdedDave (350) - - SEP 22, 2014
light amber color; wonderful citrusy hop aroma; great, bitter, piney, citrusy hop flavor on a medium bodied bready malt base and a dry, bitter aftertaste; pretty easy drinking for such a high gravity beer

Pours a light bronze. Smells of must and funk. Smooth taste with a slight bitter finish. Nice full flavored IPA

CelticBrew (801) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Pours from 12oz bottle a clear golden-yellow, huge sparkly fuzzy white head. Big bubbles at the surface. Big perfumed nose of orange blossoms, crushed floral notes, slight citrus, creamy hops. The flavour is somewhat spicy, grassy, citrusy, caramel, biscuit, peach orange, and light black pepper notes with a medium bitter finish. Chewy bitter resinous fruit and dank tones. Really nice DIPA..

CacheManyHose (187) - HONG KONG - SEP 17, 2014
From QC. Translucent gold-amber with thick white bubbly head and foamy head. Smells very bitter, piney, becomes floral and caramel malt as it warms up. Taste is, again, very piney and bitter. Dry, especially in the finish. Body is spicy, slightly foamy. A very dry, bitter IIPA.

slowrunner77 (3443) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 16, 2014
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 Iíll leave as is. For now :)"

HKdIPA (243) - 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.

Darkmagus82 (1414) - - SEP 14, 2014
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 Ė 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 Ė 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 Ė A rather tasty brew overall with good transitions between sweet and hoppy throughout the taste.
