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.

It pours dark golden with an off white head. There are aromas of citrus and caramel. There are also hints of oak, vanilla, and pine. The flavors are pine and citrus with oak as the dominant flavors. It is moderately bitter on the palate.

12oz. Bottle
Bottled On: April 24, 2015

Pours a nice slightly cloudy dark golden amber color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice two-finger plus creamy off-white head, which leaves tons of sticky lacing behind. The nose is mostly malty, with some hop notes, some citrus. The taste is malty, some hop notes, slight citrus note. Medium body, very slight dry/bitter finish. Overall a tasty brew, great thrist quencher.

Lots of good descriptions of this brew already on the BA, so I will merely add my 2 cents worth.
Drink it warmish, not ice cold, to appreciate the oaky flavors more. My first time tasting this was today, 8/5/15, the bottles were dated 3/19/15, so 4-1/2 months in the bottle. This is the first time I've seen this brew for sale here in St. Louis, so I know the bottles weren't sitting in the cooler of my local beer source for more than a few days. Blame the distributor, but in any case, perhaps this brew just needs a bit more bottle conditioning to develop to its full potential? The reviewers that said they couldn't taste the oak were either drinking this brew too cold, or I submit, possibly too young?
No, it's not a "smoked barley" ale, it's an "oak kissed" ale. This would be a great brew for the winery crews in Napa, Sonoma, Augusta and everywhere else they make wine. Old wine saying, "It takes a lot of beer to make good wine".
My last suggestion, besides the "good cigar beer comment", which I agree with, is I also think this would be a great ale to drink as a chaser for an 18 year old, smokey, single malt whiskey. OK, any oaky, smokey single malt whiskey will do.... or maybe an oaky Anejo tequila?

Seem to remember liking it more last year when I'd buy it repeatedly until it ran out, still good though, not as good as Dogfish Head Burton Baton though!

So unless I get a truly outstanding, strange or bad beer, I'm boycotting this new rating system where my review doesn't count unless I have one hundred and fifty characters.
