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.

rajendra82 (969) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - MAY 15, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2013 Standard New Belgium bottle with raised neck collar and the simple label. The pour was very clear, a touch more pale amber in shade than a typical DIPA. The head was one to two finger thick. The smell was mostly pine and grapefruit. The taste was quite bitter, with a burst of grapefruit, herbs, and spice right up front. This was a very dry, over the top, "west coast" style DIPA, and I always seem to like them for their singular purpose as a hop delivery vehicle. This was no exception. There was little no malt influence, alcohol burn, or pretense of complexity here. It was like drinking an enamel stripping, head clearing, tongue scraping, hop juice. If you like hops, you will love this. If you don’t like hops, why did you buy a DIPA. A hop bomb picked up at the neighborhood Kroger. My we have come a long way in this country, and I like that.

RCx240 (99) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 26, 2015
Pours clear amber, foamy white head, decent retention and spotty lacing. Aroma is strongly floral, with hints of pine, resin and citrus. Taste is sweet caramel and nuts, with hints of lime and orange. Finishes with a lingering astringent bitterness, floral notes. Full bodied, soft carbonation, sticky texture. Quite nice.

Aurelius (4497) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 2, 2015
Resinous, piney hops over good malt in the aroma. Nice yoked bottle, good label. Clear, orange-tan brew with a fluffy white head. Twangy kumquat zest up front, great bittering, very light diacetyl. Pineapple tones. Zesty on the lips. Satisfying mouthfeel, lingering bitterness. Best of several new beers tonight. Pretty good. World Market.
