Rumble IPARumble IPA

Brewed by:
Great Divide Brewing Company
Colorado, United States

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.10%

Availability: Fall

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.

This is a great aged IPA. It doesn't get any better then this. The appearance and smell is excellent. The taste is a bit hoppy at first but then the finish is so crisp and delicious . You can taste the oak/pine and citrus with a hint of caramel. So far its my favorite from the great divide.

12 oz. bottle, bottled on date reads June 11, 2012 so this beer is about 6 months old chillin in the bottle.

A - Pours a nice orange color with a decent two finger head that chills for a little bit, with a nice bit of lacing coming on down the glass.

S - Can definitely smell the oak coming through in the nose, not a lot of hop presence on the smell. Maybe just a slight hint of booze at the end.

T - Ah yes, this beer is just delightful. The vanilla oak flavor is just wonderful. There is little bit of a warm booze finish in there, but it is minimal.

M - Nice sticky resinous mouthfeel, the vanilla lingers for a bit, which is very nice indeed.

Overall, I love this beer. I will definitely buy this again.

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

Appearance: A little bit hazy but a good copper color. The head is off white and is around two fingers thick.

Aroma: Sweet malty notes. Grapefruit, piney a very minor butteriness in the nose. Mild hints of apple and pear and light tropical fruits.

Taste: Rather sweet in the front a simple syrup. Tropical fruits, the hops are citrusy but not a tremendous amount there certainly grapefruit notes but it's mostly a malty beer. The mouthfeel is smooth with a slight dry finish.

Notes: A very unique American I.P.A due to it's sweetness but still tasty. Cheers.

Poured into a snifter.

A: Hazy amber with small particles and two-finger, white, frothy head that lasted a couple minutes and left a nice film. Great lacing.

S: Caramel malt and fruit. Hops.

T: Moderate sweetness and solid bitterness. Oak and caramel malt. Matches the nose pretty well.

M: Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. Smooth and slightly dry.

O: This beer smells really nice, and I like that it's an oak aged IPA.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass

Pours slightly cloudy coppery with a small clear-pale head, medium amount of slow fine carbonation. Little flakes of sediment drifting around the bottom. Smell is musty, damp, slightly smoky.

Taste is heavily influenced by the oak, very woody, which makes me think of a lot of barleywines I've tasted (without the heavy alcohol flavor, of course). Plenty of hops behind that, with some citrus and floral characteristics. Fairly sweet.

Mouthfeel is pretty light. Overall, this is a nice beer.

Reddish copper brown. Served with a minimal bit of white head. Nice bit of lacing. Not overly aromatic, but there is some oak, some light citrus hops, and an unpleasant skunkiness. Flavor is off:mildly malty, vanilla and citrus, but the mix dosnt blend we'll together. Medium bodied. Not overly enjoyable.

- Aged on American & French oak. Bottled on 6/12/12, consumed 11/10/12.

A: Coppery color with a light turbidity of suspended yeast goodies. Visible carbonation was at a stand still, the head was frothy, with an oatmeal tint, small and not holding with a slight speckled lacing.

S: Piney-oak scent, fresh, more alcohol toned. Dry toasted graininess. Leans more towards the oaky nature rather hoppy.

T: Oaky toasted grain and pine, nice toasted base, gentle warmth from the 7.1%. light dry pine based with a floral touch of kilned lemon peels. A dry beginning with a splash of wet burbon citrus coming on the close.

M: Frothy mouthful, light to medium fullness, dry warmth of alcohol and pine.

O: Decent balance of wood aged attributes more so then hops. Oaky wood. Better then average but falls a bit short of a solid good. Flavor is a bit muted, ones fine.

12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: The beer poured a dismal head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pale orange color with some clarity, sediment, and bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: citrus and grapefruit aromas, followed by bready and caramel notes. There was buttery and fruity notes.

Taste: Hop flavors are more noticeable, caramel malts are nice and sweet, lingering bitterness, some bready notes, oak, vanilla, and spicy hop deliciousness.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium bodied, medium carbonation, oakey, and delicious.

Overall: At first, I didn't know what to think of this beer. It actually turned out better than I thought and can't wait to try it out on draft someday.
