COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We didn’t 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 cat’s 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 that’s 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.

Zymurgeist2 (2246) - Redwood City, California, USA - DEC 25, 2016
From bomber to pint glass. Really impressive citrus cleanliness. Overt orange. Clear golden-orange. Moderate off-white collar that dissipates over time. Small bubbles and a little billowy whist it is there. Taste is orange and slight pine, Really a nice beer. Slight litter box adds a nice subtle undertone. Faint grapefruit as well. A nice surprise.

olio (10274) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 17, 2016
355 ml bottle.
Pours clear golden color with a large white head. Resinous aroma, piney, quite malty too, orange and mild mango on the fruit department, hops have already died out a bit here sadly. Flavor is sweet mango and strawberries, mild orange notes, resinous hops, caramel malts and lots of bitterness. Alcohol is fairly well hidden, unfortunately seems to be slightly too old, a bit too sweet too.

ciocanelu (2532) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - AUG 16, 2016
Hazy amber color with beige head. Aroma has sweet tropical fruits like tangerine, ripe peach, overripe pineapple and also sweet malt. Taste starts with sweet malt, some fruity hops, but also some nasty stale note I get with some sips. Medium body with low to medium carbonation. Overall it’s not really bad but it has some off-flavors and it’s also a bit boozy.

beerman33190 (89) - FRANCE - JUL 22, 2016
Beautiful amber colour, fine white head that dissipates rapidly. Aromas of grapefruit, mandarin orange. Taste is sweet up front and then the bitterness kicks in and lasts. Great, great texture. Just thick enough to let you know it’s serious but not too rich. Well done.
