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.

Poured from a fresh bottle (5 weeks old) into a .5l glass named Spaten.

A: Long lasting off white head sits on top of a clear coppery, amber brew without much visible carbonation and leaves moderate lacing.

S: Very bready, malt forward, a bit of oak, hops, grass. Very pleasant. Not leaping out.

T: Very good. Like the smell, bread and oak with a hop finish majoring in grass, hay, herbs more than fruit, more pine than citrus. I loved it with intense sea scallop and sausage over garden veggie sauce with fresh tomatoes, provolone and truffle oil, also with the after dinner cheese course.

I am huge fan of Great Divide & Stone. In this category, Stone Arrogant Bastard wins! But this was a nice beer that I will look forward to coming back to and tasting head to head with Stone. I let it warm, and I sipped it slowly and it got more oaky, stinky, arrogant, shall we say? as it warmed. But it was just ok.

M: creamy, yet dry, but still a bit busy finish.

O - This is a nice example of oak aged IPA. It was mild and well done, but not GD's best.

Poured into a red wine glass (at the beach – not much glassware choice). Bottled on 6/24/13.

A nicely balanced beer. Comparatively, a malty IPA, not a hop bomb by any means. A nice addition to the Great Divide “library.”

A – Pours a beautiful clear amber, almost no head (-). Some moderate lacing, surprising consider the almost zero head.

S – Moderate hoppy resins. Malty, sweetness.

T – Clean malt sweetness with resinous hoppiness. Relatively balanced. Oakiness is faint.

MF – Medium bodied, medium carbonation.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a bright coppery color with a nice head that fades to some lacing.

S: Aroma of grapefruit, bit of malt sweetness, fresh grain and hint of wood.

T: Taste of citrus , some malt caramel sweetness with grain. Nice bitterness and a clean finish.

F: Medium body, crisp and refreshing.

O: The cask aging seem to take the biting edge off of the hops. Nice touch. Enjoyable beer.
