Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from 22 oz bomber into a pint glass. 5/6

Pours lighter copper with thick head of white foam, towering over 3/4 inch. Spicy oily hop nose. Peachy. Taste is a smooth fruity peppery malt backed by sneaky bitter. Smooth, balanced. Just a little fruity.
