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.

Poured from 12oz can with freshness date of 22JAN17 into standard pint glass.

L: Pale amber color, finger width head with solid retention.

S: Fruity hops, pine hops and almost a tangy citrus aroma. No malt smell present.

T: Strong pine hop flavor. Heavy bitterness. Very dry finish.

F: Dry so not very refreshing. Medium bodied.

O: Strong beginning to this beer, nice looks, solid aroma. Hop flavor is a little oily and the dry finish just doesn't do the job.
