Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.10%

Notes / Commercial Description:
RUMBLE IPA is an American IPA with subtle nuance. Brewed with heavy handed additions of Pacific Northwest hops, this beer is gently aged on French and American oak resulting in a wonderful balance of bitterness, caramel sweetness, vanilla, and undertones of pine and citrus. Very inspiring.

The beer was poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass, the beer was clear copper in color with a small head and some lacing. The nose had a slight citrus hint that was matched by a little oak. Holy Tannins! The beer tasted overly oaked, it was very creamy, only a slight hop presence that was overtaken by the oak, a little vanilla was blended into decent malt profile. Nice carbonation levels that were on the medium side. The smoothness from oak was very nice and gave the beer a very nice creamy texture. Overall, I was not impressed. Oak aged or barrel aged ipa/dipa's are just unappealing. I will admit that this beer had some interesting complexities in a few areas, but it had a very small hop profile.

Clear Copper color. Aroma Is peaty, hops and barley softened by the oak. Taste is a bit soapy, and bitter. Oak is there. Not great. ..feels and tastes stale. Disappointed."

A clear, but dark amber and copper in color with a gorgeous, very persistent, inch-high khaki colored head. I even remarked how pretty this beer was in the glass when it was delivered to me. Leaves messy, irregular spiderwebs and lines of lace down the glass. A gorgeous, sticky IPA.

The aroma is intensely oak-forward along with sweet, sharp caramel notes, and some pine needles/sap. It doesn't resemble an IPA, as the combination of the oak and malt bill is dominant. It's simple, powerful, and not particularly pleasant, especially given the known style.

Unfortunately, the flavor is just as bad as the aroma, if not worse. This is by far the oakiest beer I've ever tasted, and the pine needle flavors and big combination of sweet malt character doesn't help. Moderate hop bitterness doesn't make this any more drinkable.

Medium bodied with crisp, high carbonation.

I couldn't drink this one. Had maybe 4 ounces before pushing it away and ordering a Sculpin.
