Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Huffaroma on 02-24-2013

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.

A--Gold to possible light amber color with medium to thick head and good lacing around the glass. Cloudy as well.

S--Pine and citrus primarily on the nose. I'm a bit stuffed up, so it's kind of hard to differentiate the citrus. Smells like I would expect an Imperial/Double IPA to.

T--Citrus really comes across as grapefruit on the tongue. Big, bitter hit and a great dry finish. Very enjoyable. I can pick up the alcohol as well. Only thing I would say is the bitter might hang on just a bit too long, but IPAs aren't my favorite style so it could be right up most people's alley.

M--Medium body with decent carbonation. Quite drinkable in that regard.

O--Good IPA with the bitter hit you'd expect, and the citrus/grapefruit bit is enjoyable as well.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Best by date of Oct. 5, 2014. 8.5% ABV
