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.

Nothing all that special, but I'm in my "IPAs don't really do it for me anymore" phase

New Belgium Brewery puts out great tasting brews...

...For me Rampant is an almost perfect Imp.IPA...With a 8.5% alc content the balance between Hoppiness and Alcohol flavor is near perfect..can only sightly taste the alcohol...Typical fruity/pine smells...and also some marijuana smell too...great beer and if u can finD it u can get it cheaper than most IMP.IPA
