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.

rajendra82 (1101) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - MAY 15, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2013 Standard New Belgium bottle with raised neck collar and the simple label. The pour was very clear, a touch more pale amber in shade than a typical DIPA. The head was one to two finger thick. The smell was mostly pine and grapefruit. The taste was quite bitter, with a burst of grapefruit, herbs, and spice right up front. This was a very dry, over the top, "west coast" style DIPA, and I always seem to like them for their singular purpose as a hop delivery vehicle. This was no exception. There was little no malt influence, alcohol burn, or pretense of complexity here. It was like drinking an enamel stripping, head clearing, tongue scraping, hop juice. If you like hops, you will love this. If you don’t like hops, why did you buy a DIPA. A hop bomb picked up at the neighborhood Kroger. My we have come a long way in this country, and I like that.

Clear golden orange color with a creamy white head of foam. Notes of orange peel, dank skunk herbals, and fresh florals and pine trees.

Reçue en cadeau... Au nez, les houblons sont surtout fruités (pêches) et c’est assez discret. En bouche, la résine de pin et le pamplemousse dominent. L’alcool est peu perceptible. C’est poivré en finale.

Aroma was fresh hops malt and a little bit of skank. Flavor is mainly hops resin and a little bit of citrus and earth also some malt leather and a hint of funk.

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

Alphadelic (2249) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 3, 2017
A heavily herbaceous nose with some underlying fruitiness. In the mouth it’s big juicy citrus through and through. Very smooth texture and a balanced finish. Sure it’s not something people are going to stand in line for but it’s a very reasonable 6-pack for the price.

December 8, 2016 - bottle from Andy. Clear golden pour with limited head. Foamed up nicely with a gentle swirl. Aroma was malty and fruity hops. Taste was malty and grainy with a mildly bitter finish, nicely balanced.

Bottle from Kroger, you know the mix pack dealio. Gold, clear, small white head. Heavy grapefruit, pine, mango aroma. Flavor is peach, grapefruit pulp, pine, and bready malt. Smoothy and not syrupy.

Smooth for its strength. A solid IPA that doesn’t blow you down with hoppiness.
