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.

I had Ranger IPA and figured that its bigger brother ought to be great. Boy was I in for a let down! It looks and smells alot like Ranger, so when I tasted it, I kind of didnt believe it. The word vegetable is the only thing that came to mind. Sweet flowery vegetable. My dad had one and he gave me the same look that I think I initially gave the beer. He also was at a loss for words but we agreed on "vegetable". I am a hop head and I love IIPAs. This is at the bottom of the list for me. They shoulda tried to make it more like Ranger. And is it just me, or do all the New Belgium beers have a problem with head retention?
