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.

3.8/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Amber pour with a soppy lacing head. Looks nice. 4.0

Orange and grapefruit citrus and light pine. Not too much oak yet. 3.5

The oak is big and wet and sweet in the taste. Hops are more floral than citrus, but it's hard to ignore the woodiness. Malts are toffee-like and contribute sweetness to the perfumey oak and hops. A tad buttery. 4.0

Medium body with decent creamy carb. An excellent drink. Slight alcohol note. 4.0

Okay wood-aged IPA. A little too much. Will revisit from time-to-time. 3.5

Serving type: on-tap

On tap at World of Beer Raleigh. Served in a pint glass.

A - dark orange with a soft, dense, off white head that has great retention

S - toasted malt

T - toasted malt, oak, some chocolate notes at time, faint bitterness, faintly fruity

M - medium bodied, crisp

This is a disappointing IPA. The toasted and chocolate malts that come through were unexpected and unwelcomed. The hop character is tame and does nothing to combat the malty mess. I'll avoid this in the future.

Anything from GD is worth trying once. Rumble is not something that you MUST HAVE RIGHT NOW, but is certainly something that is worth a single-bottle purchase. Maybe it's because the beer needs to age for a while, but if the word "oak" wasn't on the label I wouldn't have guessed that oak had anything to do with this beer. As an IPA, it isn't bad: it has all the requisite hoppiness and resin, and it's all within reasonable bounds-- that's a plus. The color is gorgeous. If you're bent on an oaky experience, however, go saw a floorboard in half and inhale the dust while drinking the beer.

Bronze color, smallish head, no retention

Smells sweet—vanilla and malt; also citrus hops lurking in there too. Almost a pear- or apple-like quality as well.

Starts off bright like an IPA, then comes a substantial malt and vanilla/oak cut, but the hops come back and ride it out. An interesting take on a familiar style. Pretty hefty in body, though the 7.1% doesn’t seem that apparent. Finish is strong on bitterness and ends dry. That really helps counter the oak aging.

Rumble’s not something I want drink often or any time soon again; however, I do enjoy it for what it is. Really, it makes for a good summer night cap. It’s just too heavy of a beer to put away more than one a night.

More like a pale ale than an IPA to me. Hops never assertive with malt sweetness owning he beginning and middle, with a slightly bitter, dry finish. The oak presence is minimal, not adding much to the flavor. From a good brewer, a very underwhelming addition.
