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 Rampants finish is bone-dry.

For those of you who dont know what all those fancy words mean, this is for you. If you can handle most IPAs, you will like this one. It is smooth, has little to no aftertaste, and at 8.5% alcohol, it will mess you up if you have more than 2. This is really good stuff, Maynard.

a little zing of hops, a sweetness nearing bubblegum, sawdust. Thick white head on crisp yellow with an orange tinge. A little under carbonated. Resiny bitterness with caramel, lemon and alcohol. Thin finish.

Six pack from Proof bottleshop. Big crisp lively ipa. Drinkable and not too big. A dry sweet. Even bitter with fairly quick dry finish. Pine, floral, grapefruit, herbal. Wouldnt mind this now and again.

Brash golden color out of the bottle with a sticky white head. Sharp hop nose that remind me of peach jolly rancher candy. Syrupy mouthfeel with lots of candied grapefruit, peach pie, and some tropical fruit. There is some light toast, but it is all under the peach marmalade/hop candy flavors. Long dry hop finish with a strong alcohol kick. Not as balanced as most but still tasty if you like hops.

Bottle at home, pours dark golden, foamy head stays. Aroma fruity, pine peach notes, citrus. First sip refreshing, not very complex, but good. Hoppy aftertaste doesn't linger. Each sip is awakening the senses. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is moderately earthy, with companion citrus . Appears crystal clear light brown gold, with a white ring. Taste is bitter citrus with some spruce. Alcohol is well hidden goes down easy.

Strong, piney hops define this flavorful, reasonably bitter IPA. Somewhat sticky, resinous mouthfeel, long dry finish. Pine aroma. Enjoyable.

Light golden color with a delicious dry after taste. Nearly a perfect blend of hops and bitter happiness.

hopmelt (197) - Painesville TWP, Ohio, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Pours absolutely clear, light golden, half finger thick creamy head. Aroma dank pine, tropical, hops, slight fruitiness, slightly bready. Taste smooth, slight bitter, pine, tropical, earthy hops, perfect malt presence to balance it out. Mouthfeel and carbonation medium, dry finish, no alcohol detected. Overall excellent beer, completely balanced in all aspects, not the best out there, but very tasty and drinkable Imperial ipa.

This stuff is OK. It kind of splits the difference between IIPA and barleywine, which is to say its a IIPA w/o truly brilliant hop character thats a little bit too sweet. It pours a nice, clear orange color w/ a long-lasting but thin head of medium bubbles. The nose is just generally hoppy and I am not really picking out many flavors in particular, perhaps a bit of tropical fruit and pine. Flavor is mostly dominated by an earthy hop chararcter and, as I mentioned, its a touch on the sweet and sticky side but a nice cushion of carbonation does help to cut this somewhat. This doesnt really taste bad at all but this is getting to be a style that drives me nuts. This beer is not particular hoppier than any given IPA or APA and it doesnt have any more flavor either. Why not just brew a regular IPA w/ the same amount of aroma hops?
