Pours an orange amber with a large lasting beige head, good lacing to the end. Aroma and Taste of dark caramel malt, earthy piney hops, yeast, some grapefruit and a bit of subtle oaky wood notes in the flavor. A medium to full body with a smooth mouth feel and moderate carbonation. Finish is sweet dark caramel malt, yeast, earthy piney hops on the end with some slight flavor of lingering oak flavor. This brew seems to be well balanced between the dark malts and the subtle hops. Overall a very good and enjoyable brew. nicely done

A: A clear dark orange color that has a nice finger of off white head at the top, leaves a good amount of lacing around the glass as you drink this one.

S: A good amount of booze on the nose, with hints of caramel and oak and slight bread notes as well.

T: Up front is a stong taste of oak, hints of nuts and caramel, good mixture of bitterness and warming from malts and hops.

M: Medium bodied and moderate carbonation, nice warming sensation from the hops.

O: A very well balanced IPA, I like the oak and caramel on this one, nice warming going on as well.

Appearance: A crystal-clear copper body capped by a finger and a half of creamy off-white head that fades slowly and leaves great lacing.

Aroma: Citrusy and piney hops and a little bit of oak over a solid caramel body.

Flavor: Up front, a wave of mild hops with moderate bitterness and the same notes of citrus and pine found in the nose. As the hops give way, the usual flavors of oak and vanilla in aged beers come out. Underneath it all, a solid biscuity caramel malt backbone keeps everything grounded. Just a bare hint of spice coming from the booze from time to time. It's all balanced well, but perhaps just a little muddled. Oak, citrusy hops and biscuity malt in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and a little creamy with smooth medium carbonation and a dry finish. A hint of warmth from the alcohol from time to time.

Drinkability: Drinks much faster that the moderately-high alcohol content would suggest, so keep it in mind.

Verdict: Rumble is just what I expected it to be, an IPA subdued a little by time with subtle notes of oak and vanilla. In a world of a million IPAs, this one stands out nicely.

A: This beer pours an extremely clear amber body with visible carbonation. Sitting on top is a 2 finger rocky head, white color, that dissipates slowly leaving behind a great about of lace.

S: A strong aroma of sweet citrus/grapefruit hops balanced with piney hops. Hints of oak and vanilla are subtle, but evident.

T: A sweet grapefruit hoppy flavor that turns into a bitter piney hops flavor. The oak and vanilla soften this IPA to a more mild version of this style, but is still balanced with the light bready malts.

M: A lean, oily texture with a medium body and mild carbonation. Would have liked it to be a little more full on the palate.

D: Loved this beer. Extremely easy to drink and a fair price ($2.30) makes this a repeater.

Bottle date 6/12.
I thought that an older bottle date for this IPA would possibly degrade the flavor four months later. But I was pleasantly surprised.

The beer poured a beautiful copper color with a two finger head.

Strong aroma of vanilla and oak.

The mouth feel is smooth.

The finish is enhanced by the aroma which remains with warming.
There is an intense complex taste of fruit, oak and vanilla.

This is a winner. Will drink again soon.

Presentation: Poured into a pint glass from a bottle, as pictured, with a bottled on August 25 2010, date.

A: Medium copper with a 1/2 finger off-white head. Slightly hazy.

S: Mainly caramel and ripe citrus. Oranges or tangerines. Very sweet smelling.

T&M: Mostly citrus hops with a small bit of piney hop bitterness. Earthy and fairly well-balanced with the caramel malty sweetness. Medium to full bodied. Some roughness from the oily hops, but mainly smooth in the middle that fades to a dry hop finish.

Very nice taste. Original and very drinkable IPA.
