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.

Poured out a medium golden with a meringue-like white head. The head leaves significant lacing throughout the glass with moderate retention. The aroma has some light fruit notes and a robust malt sweetness. The taste is a little lacking, and doesn't pack the hops punch expected from an Imperial IPA. It doesn't taste bad at all, just not the flavor profile expected from the style. The body is a little thinner than I'd like, as well. All in all, it IS a good beer, just not quite the one I was wanting and expecting
