Press Release: (Fort Collins, CO) – New Belgium Brewing, maker of Fat Tire Amber Ale and a wide variety of award-winning beers, continues its imaginative exploration of IPAs with its latest release – Rampant Imperial IPA. Rampant brings a happily bitter beer to New Belgium’s year-round portfolio, which also includes Ranger IPA and Shift.
A burly Imperial IPA, Rampant pours a pure copper and carries the sheen of a rightly hopped beer. The Mosiac and Calypso hops bring stonefruit, while the addition of Centennial hops nod towards citrus for a well-rounded aroma. The beer presents heavy peach tones with a profoundly bitter bite.
“Imperial IPAs take hoppy beers to the next level,” said New Belgium Assistant Brewmaster Grady Hull. “Rampant packs a powerful wallop but it’s got the malt bill to back it up.”
Rampant is 8.5 percent ABV and 85 IBU. It’s available in 12 oz. and 22 oz. bottles and on draft in most New Belgium markets.
