Great Divide - Rumble

Rumble (7.1% ABV) is an Oak Aged India Pale Ale that is seasonally available May – October.  The descriptors on the label are Exemplary and Balanced and these words describe Rumble very well.  Rumble pours gold / orange with a small head (depending on how you pour) and has great carbonation.  You can pick up the hops and know this is an IPA.  Rumble has the taste of an IPA and I could detect oak in Rumble.  This is another nice offering from Great Divide – another great Colorado brewer. 

Great Divide’s description of Rumble – “Rumble IPA is an American IPA with subtle nuance. Brewed with heavy handed additions of Pacific Northwest hops, this beer is gently aged on French and American oak resulting in a wonderful balance of bitterness, caramel sweetness, vanilla, and undertones of pine and citrus. Very inspiring. 7.1% ABV.”  Suggested Food Pairings areMarinated skirt steak, grilled sweet potatoes, ripe Brie or Talleggio cheese, apple crisp with creme friache ice cream.”  Great Divide is located close to Coors field, so if you are in Denver, this is an easy brewery to visit.
