Rampant Imperial IPARampant Imperial IPA
BEER INFO

Brewed by:
New Belgium Brewing
Colorado, United States
newbelgium.com

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
A burly and bitter Imperial IPA, Rampant pours a pure copper and carries the sheen of a rightly hopped beer. The Mosaic and Calypso hops bring stonefruit to the front seat, and the addition of Centennials nod towards citrus for a well-rounded aroma. The taste expands these hops with heavy peach tones and a profoundly bitter bite. There is some malt sweetness to stand this beer up, and Rampant's finish is bone-dry.

This is nice and hoppy.....much more so than Fat Tire. You will like this if you are a hop head.

Pours cloudy yellow with thin fading head. Belgium + IPA with peachy herbal tones and very deep heavy hops. Gets better with each sip. Pares well with spicy foods.
