COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We didnít want this to be Jagged Edge on steroids. Thus rather than using the same hop combination, we chose more fruit forward hops to balance out the alcohol in the beer. The medium crystal malt adds a very subtle color and sweetness. Nugget and Millenium hops are used to bitter. Citra is a new variety to the market that has some similar properties to Simcoe but a more pleasant fruitiness; pineapple/mango aromas mixed in with pine and catís pee. Centennial brings candied orange and Amarillo adds big grapefruit. The liquid in the fermenter is dry-hopped three times- each dry hop equal in weight to the dry hop of Jagged Edge. This multi-stage dry hopping is meant to layer the different hop aromas. The beer is fermented cool to suppress fusel alcohol development, and dextrose is added to allow it to attenuate out highly, leaving very little residual sugar. The idea was to avoid that syrupy "gumsmacker" effect thatís sometimes found in Imperial IPAs. Other than barrel aged beers, this is by far our most labor intensive and expensive beer to make. Rampage fans are legion and we believe they deserve nothing less than the very best we can give them.

A very good one, quite fresh.

Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of Elwood. Pours a cloudy golden with an off-white head. Intense, herbal hop aroma. Rich body, very fruity, quite some residual sweetness, gets a discreet metallic tang as you get into it. Herbal, hoppy finish. A very decent DIPA. 160612

This was a very nice DIPA. I thought that it would be much more hoppy, but this was pretty smooth for what it was. I think the alcohol percentage masked alot of the hop flavors. I did enjoy it.
