COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rumble IPA is an American IPA with subtle nuance. Brewed with heavy-handed additions of Pacific Northwest hops, this beer is gently aged on French and American oak resulting in a wonderful balance of bitterness, caramel sweetness, vanilla, and undertones of pine and citrus.

Bottle. Earthy hop nose. Pine, tangerine, and light oak. Clear dark amber with a thin and steady white head, active carbonation. Firm, assertive bitterness but by no mean unbalanced. A good caramel sweetness takes the edge off. Finishes with oak notes. Full bodied yet still crisp from the hops. Very well done.

Its an amber colored beer. The head holds thin and white. The aroma is woodsy and the flavor is floral and hoppy. The oaking adds an unexpected smoothness. The flavor is citrusy, lightly syrupy, and bitter, which means delicious when you use ggoogle translate from English to Beer. Enjoy this while you can. You never know when she may not return.

Bottle (no freshness date but this is a new product to our market). Pours with a mostly clear orange to bronze hue with a just off-white head that fades somewhat quickly. Good lacing. Aromas of peanut butter. Very malty, husky, grainy. Some oak notes, light soil. Vanillin, esters, and a near complete lack of hops. Uh-oh. Flavors are a bit sweet, vanillin, sawdust, bready, toasty, nutty malt notes. Some oak. Medium bitterness, very light pine. Neutral to slightly bitter balance. Doesn’t taste old, but where are the hops?! A really earthy flavor given by the oak. Medium to light bubbles, somewhat dry. Slightly tannic finish. Misses the mark for an IPA.

12oz bottle from Binny’s Lakeview. Pours a copper color with a thin white head and some lacing. Aroma is mildy hoppy with some oak. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is bitter, piney hops, with an nice oak finish and a clean bitter aftertaste. Very nice.

On tap at Stone. Clear golden with a fizzy white head. Huge hoppy pine and oak aroma. Thick sticky palate. Earthy hops bitterness and a large oaky and vanilla taste with a caramel finish.

UPDATED: AUG 12, 2013 7/4/2011-Subdued citrus and carmel on the nose. Beautifully smooth with flavors flowing from sweet malt to fruitiness to minerally bitterness. Clean and bracing finish with only hints of vanilla/oak. Much like their Titan IPA, a little darker and aged. It’s really good, but if they want to rumble with the likes of Oaked Arrogant Bastard from Stone, they’re going to need to up their wood (so to speak.) 8/12/2013- I’m getting a bunch more oak out of this one. Different recipe? bottle? batch? taste buds? Love it even more!

Clear amber in color, not much head. Nice bready aroma, with I believe a little vanilla. Very well balanced, nice creamy beginning, vanilla in the middle and a touch of bitterness at the end. Finishes abruptly.....awesome.

The beer pours a translucent, deep orangey-amber color with an off-white, average, pillowy, mostly lasting head which leaves tight, drippy lace. The nose is full of toasted caramel, vanilla, tannic French oak, slightly piney, some spicy notes, and underlying orange; simple, balanced, and pleasant. The flavor is similar with orangey and piney undertones, still spicy, faint vanilla, and plenty of toasted oak and caramel notes. The palate is medium to full, nearly lively, round, and just lightly dry. The beer finishes fairly long with lingering oak shavings, some vanilla, and piney bitterness. Fairly simple concept and simple notes but well balanced and pleasant to drink. Certainly the oak masks some of the hop notes and bitterness but still works well together. I am glad GD put out another American based beer.
