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.

P: 12 fl oz bottle in to a pint glass

A: SRM is light amber. Crystal clear. Head is off white, 1 in, puffy, dissipates to 1/2 cm and retention is very good. Medium carbonation. Medium/light lacing.

S: Big hop notes and malt are secondary to the barrel aging. Big yet mellow notes of vanilla and carmel.

T: Hops come off on initial palate and shoot straight down the middle of the tounge. Then the flavors imparted by the French and American barrel aging spring forward, imparting notes of vanilla and carmel. Aftertaste is slightly hoppy and of caramel. Alcohol is noticable only on aftertaste, akin to after taking a shot of whiskey, how it makes you warm on the insides, but obviously more subdued.

M: Mf is robust and complex due to barrel aging. Hops stimulate the palate while barrel aging mellows the mf, but the flavors added by this process add additional layers for the palate to process, enhancing mf.

O: While this review is a little verbose, I felt this beer deserved more elaboration than usual. This beer is quite fantastic, hoppy, malty, and smoothed and enhanced by the barrel aging. Great Divide does some very good things, but this is definitely an ace up the sleeve. Always a pleasure to drink, and will do so again and again.

Rumble IPA
12 oz brown bottle
Served in a 20 oz tulip glass

Pours a burnt peach color with a hazy tint and a moderate sized head on top. Nice spots and trails of lace.

Interesting whiffs of citrus fruits with some wet wood whiffs.

Caramel malt backbone with some flavors of orange and bitter lime. A hint of pine cone and pepper. Finishes rather smooth with an oak aged profile.

I really like Great Divide, this is another good beer from this brewery.

I picked up a 6-pack of these at Springbrook Liquors in Bloomingdale, IL for $11.99. No freshness date - only a short blurb about the beer on the front label.

The beer poured a copper color that turned into a new penny copper when held to the light. Just a ½-finger of off-white head, but tons of lacing.

The smell was a mix of sweet caramel malt and citrusy hops.

Both citrus and piny hops dominate the flavor. Caramel sweetness is tempered with oak barrel dryness. Not bad.

The mouthfeel is phenominal. It's smooth (almost creamy) wiyh a perfect amount of moderate carbonation.

Good stuff!
