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.

Pours copper with medium off white head and thick lacing. Aroma is bright with spicy lemon zest, pine, toffee, and alcohol. Taste is malty sweet up front with a sharp biting bitterness. It has a solventy astringency thats a little hard to overlook, but still not a bad brew.

Various size bottles over the last few weeks. Poured a clear golden color with a white head. Aroma is a heavy dose of citrus, grapefruit notes, pine resin is there. Flavor is resin, plenty of "cone" notes in this. Despite the amount of hops, this is pretty well balanced, with a nice amount of hops and malt backing to keep this beer in check. Booze comes forward on the finish.

12 oz part of a sixer from Fred Meyer in N.Salem $7.99 a six. Clear bright orange colour in appearance, with a nice sized thick bubbly white head, Aroma..fruity really almost like pink lady apples, floral hop, cherry, strange no malt for an imperial. Taste is also very balanced but this time the chewy,caramel malts are visible to restrain the floral ,fruity hop. MOuth feel is fine enough actually good for style. An unusual beer not really an Imperial IPA though, not to say I didnt enjoy

Not bad. Pours a dark golden with great lacing. Aromas of citrus and pine. Lots of bitter notes. It seems a little like makinga DIPA for the sake of making one. Still Ok though.

Citrus, spruce, floral very sweet over the top ipa, but not over the top bitterness. Sweet syrup comes across more than anything else here for me.

bottle - Pours clear copper with a small off-white head. It has a rich citrus hop aroma, big on the grapefruit, with a hint of herbal smell. The flavor is, as expected, high on bitterness. Theres plenty of citrus and a solid malt backbone to balance it. Medium to full bodied, its not as bitter as some IIPAs, a fact that will please some people and disappoint others. Either way its a good beer.

Hoppy. It immediately hits you on a very earthy or woodsy sort of way. Feels nice on the palate. Some malt comes in at the end, and a please my bitterness hangs around. It's nice, but I would prefer the less in our face Ranger IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a light amber. Has a malt, pine, and light fruity hop aroma. Taste is very malty and fruity upfront with some like bitterness from hops at the end.
