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.

If you have ever tried Dogfishhead's 90 minute I.P.A. then you know exactly what this beer is all about. Floral smells, hoppy character, dry finish, with a high a.b.v. This beer has a better price, so if I was in the mood for those characteristics, I would pick this one up for sure.
