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.

12 oz bottle. bottled on July 17, 2012. served into a nonic pint.

A: a reddish hue. hazy, but nothing crazy. head is slightly off-white. retention I great. lacing I spotted.

S: very woody. a lot of cedar. with the hops, smells similar to a cupcake.

T: very sweet, slightly vanilla. a little woody. a serious oak/tannin flavor that is prevalent but not overbearing. the oak plays nicely with the amount of hops that are behind this brew.

M: average carb on a medium/full body.

D: good, but similar to most things of the style, not a brew that should be oak aged. not sure how much time affected this (being about 8 months old...), perhaps the hops would have been more in the forefront and the oak would be a side-note...? who knows. good, but not great is my conclusion.

Served on tap

This IPA pours a very hazy orange golden color. The beer isn't very bold on the nose. The flavor caught me off guard. There is a lot of oak character in this beer, a strong woody flavor. There is a nice hop profile of fresh juicy citrus like orange and mango but it isn't too bold. This is more of a balanced IPA. The malts are bready and mostly pale malts if I were to guess. A solid IPA, I prefer their Titan but not a bad choice.

12oz bottle in pint glass.

Appearance-pours a very cloudy orange. 3

Aroma-orange, little grapefruit, doesn't smell to hoppy,slight lemon peel. 3.25

Taste-bitter hops with citrus, you get the sourness of grapefruit, there is some small malt notes. 3

Feel-medium body, alcohol comes in then leaves you with a bitter feel. 2.75

Overall-this would be better enjoyed with food. I could see drinking this eating steak or some other beef on a summer day. I wouldn't buy it again, but wouldn't think twice if someone else offered it to me. 3
