Had this on cask at the 2010 Firkin Festival.

This poured a super cloudy, dark orange, sienna brown.

It smelled of grapefruit, pine forest, grass and fresh hops.

It tasted of lemon, citrus, grapefruit, bitter, and pine. It had a more bitter aftertaste.

Good Carbonation. Good drinkability. A good, Imperial IPA, not may favorite but not too bad.

It's OK, not great.

Beer is orangish with some hazy. thin head that breaks quickly, minimal lacing.

Lots of fruit in the nose. Citrus hops all the way.

Beer is medium bodied and lowly carbonated on the palate. The overall experience of the beer is good but not phenomenal. It is a hoppy / tropical midpalate, minimal malt presence and a moderately dry finish. I enjoyed it and would have it again but I wouldn't go out of my way.

Rampage is a citrus bomb with candy sugar and caramel sweetness to cover the high alcohol. It's not the crispiest, or drying, so not necessarily typically IPA-ish. I'd like to have it fresher. Of course that's my fault, because my buddy Fred got me this fresh and I shit the bed and didn't drink it fresh.

Still, way enjoyable.
