BEER INFO

Brewed by:
New Belgium Brewing

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.

Rampant Imperial IPA
New Belgium Brewing, Colorado
---from bottle to pint glass---

Appearance
Bright-Clear golden color, Two fingers of white head, great lacing.

Smell
Whoa! Bright citrus, bit of pine, loads of grapefruit, and a little funky/earthy aroma. I dig!

Taste
Powerful piney and grassy flavors at first, but they give way to juicy citrus. Sweet malt sticks around.

Mouth-feel
Medium body, good balance of bitter to sweet, good carbonation.

Overall
Overwhelming resinous flavor at first sip, but overall very good. Smells great, looks like a miller lite with great lacing. I’d drink this again.
