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.

I love a good IPA, but for folks who don't dig the hoppy aftertaste of IPA's, this one's right up yer' alley! Great hop taste without the after fast that you non-hopheads don't dig. Hophead or not, you'll dig this one.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a shaker. A moderate pour brings between 1 and 1.5 inches of a white, frothy, sticky head. The beer is a pale ruddy golden, crystal clear, with light carbonation.

Nice aroma of citrus pith and pine, with a backbone of biscuit malt. A good deal of perceived sweetness with a dry finish, creamy mouthfeel and lingering bitterness. Caramel and brown sugar notes, and perhaps a little peach pit compete with the citrus and toned-down pine. The alcohol adds a bit of a spicy bite, but is otherwise masked.

This is an excellent and reasonably priced DIPA. I think I only paid about 8 bucks for a sixer.
