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 Rampants finish is bone-dry.

Old straw by givenchy. Perfume and wet hay prevail after slightly peachy, piney aroma. Been a while since I had a beer this bad. Ive thrown out beer that Ive brewed that tasted better. Felt I owed nb a try of their new offering. No longer feel so kindly. What to do with 5 more?

Can from Liquor Barn. Lots of hops, gave it an almost pine-sol aroma. Taste is lots of bitter without much else going on.

A heavily herbaceous nose with some underlying fruitiness. In the mouth its big juicy citrus through and through. Very smooth texture and a balanced finish. Sure its not something people are going to stand in line for but its a very reasonable 6-pack for the price.

Smooth for its strength. A solid IPA that doesnt blow you down with hoppiness.

Hinez57 (245) - Clinton, Mississippi, USA - OCT 30, 2016
Not over the top hoppy in aroma or flavor. Very floral-fruity. Juicy fruit gum on the nose and taste. Beautiful clear pale gold. Nice malty base light grass/hay, more sweetness than usually associated with most good iipas. Good fairly viscous mouthfeel with firm bitterness and little gearing finish. Overall well made, enjoyable, fruity, very clean, balanced drinkable brew.

Impy IPA... You focking cretins. Yeah, its kinda robust. Its kinda lacey and a nice gold in the Daffy Duck glass. but it seems to go about 84.6 % of the way and then go......Meh... it reminds me of those co workers which I despise. Again I state the logisticians and bean counters got a hold of the brewers nut sack, squeezed and then said... "we are growing exponentially Focktard!, Damn the craft! full speed ahead! Make sure we have every style represented somehow within this ridiculous budget! Sub standard beer? thats OK! Its brand recognition that counts! The public is confused and will like what we tell them to like....!" That is the state of this underwhelming IIPA..... Window licking Fock-tards

blankboy (7400) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 5, 2016
[Bottle (355ml)] Pours a deep amber-gold with an average size lasting frothy white head. Good amount of lacing. Aroma is lightly sweet and fruity along with bready malt and a good amount of hops. Nice fruity, hoppy flavour (7+) with a moderately bitter finish. Alcohol is well hidden. Medium bodied. Easy to drink for an Imperial and quite enjoyable.

Shot (485) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - OCT 1, 2016
Pours golden with a massive frothy white head. Subdued aromas of floral hops. Flavors are stone fruit, herbal tones, mango, fresh bread, and a bit of fresh cut grass. Nicely balanced. Clean mouthfeel. Drinks easily for an imperial IPA, but the alcohol presence is noticeable. Overall, very nice.
