Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BradLikesBrew on 08-07-2010

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.

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.

12oz bottle (bottled 8/19/12) poured into an Alchemist tumbler.

A - Pours a medium amber filled with a thick cloud of yeast suspended throughout the liquid. Three fingers of off-white head show outstanding staying power and lasts for many minutes. Webs of sticky lacing cling to the glass all the way down to the bottom.

S - Quite fruity and estery...very yeasty and breadlike malt character. Hops are spicy and a bit floral. Wood is noticeable but rather subtle. Seems more malty than hoppy in balance.

T - Ctirusy/grapefruity hops up front, followed by some earthy and woody flavors. Caramelly sweet malt, solid hop bitterness that lingers into the aftertaste.

M - Body is medium...medium-low carbonation, more creamy than tingly. Wood becomes more prominant as the beer warms. Alcohol is hidden well.

O - Overall balanced IPA. Not especially heavy on the hops...more of balanced and malt forward example of the style. Wood adds some nuances and becomes more noticeable as the beer warms. Easy drinker...feels quite sessionable, even at 7.1%. A solid yet not very memorable IPA...I'd have another, but not on the top of my list to go back to.

This is a great aged IPA. It doesn't get any better then this. The appearance and smell is excellent. The taste is a bit hoppy at first but then the finish is so crisp and delicious . You can taste the oak/pine and citrus with a hint of caramel. So far its my favorite from the great divide.

12 oz. bottle, bottled on date reads June 11, 2012 so this beer is about 6 months old chillin in the bottle.

A - Pours a nice orange color with a decent two finger head that chills for a little bit, with a nice bit of lacing coming on down the glass.

S - Can definitely smell the oak coming through in the nose, not a lot of hop presence on the smell. Maybe just a slight hint of booze at the end.

T - Ah yes, this beer is just delightful. The vanilla oak flavor is just wonderful. There is little bit of a warm booze finish in there, but it is minimal.

M - Nice sticky resinous mouthfeel, the vanilla lingers for a bit, which is very nice indeed.

Overall, I love this beer. I will definitely buy this again.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: A little bit hazy but a good copper color. The head is off white and is around two fingers thick.

Aroma: Sweet malty notes. Grapefruit, piney a very minor butteriness in the nose. Mild hints of apple and pear and light tropical fruits.

Taste: Rather sweet in the front a simple syrup. Tropical fruits, the hops are citrusy but not a tremendous amount there certainly grapefruit notes but it's mostly a malty beer. The mouthfeel is smooth with a slight dry finish.

Notes: A very unique American I.P.A due to it's sweetness but still tasty. Cheers.

Poured into a snifter.

A: Hazy amber with small particles and two-finger, white, frothy head that lasted a couple minutes and left a nice film. Great lacing.

S: Caramel malt and fruit. Hops.

T: Moderate sweetness and solid bitterness. Oak and caramel malt. Matches the nose pretty well.

M: Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. Smooth and slightly dry.

O: This beer smells really nice, and I like that it's an oak aged IPA.
