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 - Clear golden with a nice amount of white head.

S - Citrus, piney, hoppy. Can't sense much else.

T - Citrus malt with a hoppy bitter finish and bitterer aftertaste which turns into a soapy aftertaste. Some other fruit characteristics but I didn't pick up the peachiness.

M - Medium body and smooth with good amount of carbonation. Alcohol mostly masked.

O - A decent beer for the saturated style. Wouldn't be a go to but would never shy away from it if it was around.
