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 (958) - 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.

Poured from a 12oz bottle with a date of 3/2/2014 - about 8.5 months old. Aroma - Orangey. What I would expect from an IPA that sat too long. Appearance - Golden color with some a half finger of fluffy white head. Taste - Malty, orangy...medium mouth feel. Palate - sticky and lively. Lots of carbonation. Overall - I know it’s a better beer fresh. My fault for letting it sit too long.

Bjuden av Reza På fat Tre Små Rum. Jävligt god Dipa doft. Smakar granbarr ihop med apelsin äpple å skumbanan. Sällan skumbananen varit så framträdande som i denna Dipa. Perfekt lågt kolsyrad . En mycket högklassisk öl. Krämig känsla i munnen .Denna öl måste letas efter å köpas BUMMS.

MrBeerFanatic (881) - Friona, Texas, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Drank as celebration we were having a boy. Pours a light amber frothy head. Freshest aromas of pure chinook hops, almost like a half an oz was put into the bottle directly. Has the pine, light medicinal herbal aromas and slight peach. Flavors mostly strong pine, slight peach, and some stone fruit. High bitter, lightly sweet. No alcohol noticed.

Very good and very potent IPA. Great aroma and very smooth drinkable taste. New Belgium even calls it bitter, but I did not find it very bitter. Golden in color.

Bork (317) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Pleasant aroma but the flavor is too one-sided on the heavily bitter pine and has a not so pleasant perfumy taste that comes through again in the soapy texture. Some alcohol shines through on the finish.

BREWMUSKCLES (2285) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 8, 2014
nice powerful enough hop character with pine resin and grapefruit as well as other fruits paired nicely with an aged wood and ivy broom straw type flavor component thats been done before and done well here.

finn1918 (198) - Georgia, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Pours clear amber with a small white head. Aroma of straightforward floral/soapy hops. Taste is clean malts with a good balancing of hops. Clean finish and light mouthfeel. This is a decent drinking beer, albeit not as complex as some DIPAs on the market.
