Fresh at the source, not who knows how old and malty from an undated bottle.

Very good DIPA. Tropical cherry, strawberry & Orange starburst candy and sticky dank pine hops in the back. Dry in the finish. I would definitely have this again at the source or if assured a fresh bottle.

Solid stuff.

Picked this up in the tickers BIF, poured from a bomber into a snifter. The pour is deep orange, 2 inch, sticky white head. Big grapefruit and pine on the nose. Juicey grapefruit, orange marmalade, hints of bitter pine are followed by lingering tropical fruit. The body is medium/full, good carbonation, sticky mouthfeel. A very enjoyable brew.

Rampage Imperial IPA pours out a bubbly clear amber color with a small head. The aroma is great, there's heavy citrus and pine hops, with a nice caramel malt base. The taste is very heavy on sweet citrus hops and zest at first, then a little bit of an awkward place where the caramel malts are kinda in a taste purgatory with the piney hops. The finish straightens everything out with more of the sweet citrus and grapefruit. The mouthfeel seems a little light and perhaps a bit too overcarbonated. The drinkability is solid. Overall, this is a good double IPA. Those who like a sweeter DIPA should really love this.
