Notes/Commercial Description:
Brewed with heavy handed additions of Pacific Northwest hops, this beer is gently aged on French and American oak resulting in a wonderful balance of bitterness, caramel sweetness, vanilla, and undertones of pine and citrus.

This IPA pours a very hazy orange golden color. The beer isn't very bold on the nose. The flavor caught me off guard. There is a lot of oak character in this beer, a strong woody flavor. There is a nice hop profile of fresh juicy citrus like orange and mango but it isn't too bold. This is more of a balanced IPA. The malts are bready and mostly pale malts if I were to guess. A solid IPA, I prefer their Titan but not a bad choice.

12oz bottle in pint glass.

Appearance-pours a very cloudy orange. 3

Aroma-orange, little grapefruit, doesn't smell to hoppy,slight lemon peel. 3.25

Taste-bitter hops with citrus, you get the sourness of grapefruit, there is some small malt notes. 3

Feel-medium body, alcohol comes in then leaves you with a bitter feel. 2.75

Overall-this would be better enjoyed with food. I could see drinking this eating steak or some other beef on a summer day. I wouldn't buy it again, but wouldn't think twice if someone else offered it to me. 3

A clear, but dark amber and copper in color with a gorgeous, very persistent, inch-high khaki colored head. I even remarked how pretty this beer was in the glass when it was delivered to me. Leaves messy, irregular spiderwebs and lines of lace down the glass. A gorgeous, sticky IPA.

The aroma is intensely oak-forward along with sweet, sharp caramel notes, and some pine needles/sap. It doesn't resemble an IPA, as the combination of the oak and malt bill is dominant. It's simple, powerful, and not particularly pleasant, especially given the known style.

Unfortunately, the flavor is just as bad as the aroma, if not worse. This is by far the oakiest beer I've ever tasted, and the pine needle flavors and big combination of sweet malt character doesn't help. Moderate hop bitterness doesn't make this any more drinkable.

Medium bodied with crisp, high carbonation.

I couldn't drink this one. Had maybe 4 ounces before pushing it away and ordering a Sculpin.

Got the Rumble IPA in a Great Divide Sampler 12 pack I was given for Christmas.
Poured into my Harpoon Pint Glass.
A little hazy due to some yeast sediment in the glass.
Was garage temperature in December (45 degrees F)
Smelled like a good amount of hops typical of an IPA but really was not over the top hoppy on the taste. Great mouthfeel as it was perfect carbonation and had a creamy feel.
I really liked this first beer I've had from this Colorado Brewery.
Looking forward to the 2 more bottles of this in the 12 pack.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light amber color, with a thin off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains caramelized malts, vanilla, citrus and a good amount of hops.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of vanilla, caramel and citrus in a prominent display of oak-aging. Then a strong but not over-powering hops bitterness comes in. The malt character is hearty and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and very smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a good IPA to drink for a long time if you’re not looking for a hop-bomb.
