Black Diamond Rampage Imperial IPA
I ordered a bottle of Black Diamond Rampage Imperial IPA from Beer on the Wall. The beer pours a golden color with a frothy white head that laces to the glass. The aroma consists of grapefruit, tangerine, orange, lemon, and pine. The taste is bitter but slightly sweet with grapefruit, orange, tangerine, and lemon flavors. The beer dries a little on the finish with fresh pine and spruce hops. The alcohol content is 9.0% ABV. This was wonderfully done Imperial IPA with all the right citrus flavors and hop balance. It was not overly sweet or bitter, but struck the perfect balance.
