Rampant Imperial IPARampant Imperial IPA

Brewed by:
New Belgium Brewing
Colorado, United States

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.

Yeah, this is really good. Definitely one of my favorite that New Belgium putts out. For a DIPA this one is a little tangier than some, more fruity and orange like in the nose. Nice copper red body, good carbonation, poured into a snifter. Presentation has a lot going for it right now, I've got it at a great temperature and its leaving a beautiful lace on my glass. Nutty and hoppy, somewhat oily, even a little vegetable (celery or onion?) like in the taste. Aftertaste has some nice malted backbone. This is solid. Good beer. That orange kick is a bit interesting, not good or bad. Some brown sugar like sweetness at the end. I like it, and would buy it again.
