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.

A properly hopped and well-balanced DIPA, expected from New Belgium, worth a sixer any time, but watch that 8.5% ABV... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle care of one Mr. Stephen Dorsey; enjoyed at the palace of Dorsalligan, whilst the rain settled outside on a hot Friday eve. Nose is full of spicy carbonation and sweet syrupy hop. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with lots of sweet sugary hops upfront, followed by dominant malt profile, spice and resin. Soft booze character in the finish.

Bottle sample tasted at BBF Lab Madrid 2016 on the 02/07/2016. Clear golden colour with medium white head. Aroma of herbal hops, grass, orange peel and tropical fruits. Taste is fruity and grassy. Next one please!

Very nice, balanced overall for an IPA. Hoppy, but smooth. Hints of grapefruit, grass, peach, and some bready malt.

Six pack from Manchester CT. Pours out a clear light golden amber. Thin off white head. Aroma and flavor is very herbal and earthy with some pine, tropical fruit and citrus. Some sweet boozy malts in the middle. Long bittersweet finish. A little too funky for me.

ByTheirLimpin (321) - New York, USA - JUN 17, 2016
Puts golden amber from the bottle. Fine white head. Dry piney nose. Citrus fruit up front. A little honey tied to a clean hop resin through the middle balanced nicely. Finish brings a lemony booze whang.

after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - JUN 16, 2016
Draft at SB. Pours a slightly hazy medium orange-y amber with a loose white head. Light orange peel and lots of caramel on the nose, with a bit of peanuts in the background. Creamy medium body with moderate carb. Grapefruit, caramel, and a nutty note on the mid palate. Given how present and even explosive many NB IPAs have been over the last couple years, this one is surprisingly restrained, even timid.

williamherbert (1544) - Syracuse, New York, USA - JUN 14, 2016
Clear yellow-gold color. A big head sticks around with a vigorous half-pour. The nose is pine and a rather biscuity malt backbone. A little prickly with a citrus nose at the end. Sharp hops. There is a touch of plastic/band-aid, but minimal. The flavor is severe metallic alcohol, followed by bitter hops. The hops are more leafy, maybe sagebrush? The hops are not very sweet in the flavor. Perhaps a touch of mint. The feel is rounded and malty. There is a serious alkaline/battery burn on the way down. It’s kind of an average Imperial. It’s chock full of alcohol, but it’s not all that complex.

Stone fruit and tropical citrus on the nose. Tastes like fresh grapefruit in a pine forest, with a little caramel malt on the side. Smooth but with a big bite. Balanced and Bitter.
