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.

Pours a very nice clean/clear dark golden yellow color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice two-finger thick creamy white head, lots of nice sticky lacing with a huge island. The nose is slightly hoppy, with some sweetness. The taste is hoppy, slightly sweet, with a slight touch of pine/citrus. Medium body with a dry/bitter finish. Overall a pretty tasty DIPA, nice to see something different here for a change.
