COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rebel IPA is brewed with 5 varieties of West coast hops: cascade, simcoe, centennial, chinook, & amarillo. Itís everything we love about West coast style IPAís. Big citrus & grapefruit flavors with subtle pine notes for a flavorful refreshing brew.

An IPA with a subtle aroma, itís piney, citrusy-sweet, malty, and lightly floral, in flavor too. Bitterness is well balanced. It is not a great IPA, but it is a perfect choice if you go somewhere there isnít any better options.

Claims to be a west coast IPA, not totally sure I agree. Smells somewhat hoppy and citrus. Tastes much the same. Disclaimer this is a surprisingly good shower beer though. That being said, there is nothing special at all about this beer. I find found this beer to be decent. I had this from a bottle.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a clear golden color. The head is damn impressive at three fingers high, with a shade thatís barely off-white. Annoyingly, retention is quite good. The sudsy texture leaves behind some soapy lacing on the glass. S: Eh, kind of disappointing. Or maybe not, considering who makes it (look Sam Adams, I think you make some good beers, just not good IPAs!) I mainly get the SA house character, but beneath that is where the hops lie. Theyíre slightly citrusy, slightly herbaceous, and slightly piny, and thatís about it. T: I only get a significant hop flavor on the back end, and itís mostly herbal/piny rather than the citrus/tropical fruits I tend to love in the style. The front end brings a flavor very typical of the Sam Adams house character, along with a goodly amount of malts. Itís also very peppery. All in all, it drinks like a slightly hoppier version of a typical Sam Adams ale, and that ainít a compliment. M: This feels too heavy on the palate, which I tend not to like out of my IPAs. Nor is it dry enough. It goes down okay, given its moderate carbonation levels, but a west-coast IPA should be effortless. This just isnít, at all. O: This is the closest thing to a good IPA Sam Adams has made. Sadly, it isnít quite a good IPA - much less a good íwest coastí IPA - as the hops are too mild and the malts are too strong yet undefined. Come to think about it, it isnít much better than Latitude 48 was. I donít need to have it again, as there are far better ways to get my IPA fix.

Pours a pretty clear yellow. Aroma was very mild citrus. Taste actually had good notes of grapefruit, lemon, and mango in it along with some pine. Would have liked a more pronounced aroma, but it wasnít a bad beer.

Still not an IPA fan, and this didnít change that. A solid, introductory IPA for the beginner, but nothing a real hop head will be impressed with.

Little aroma. Pours golden with a decent head. A bit hoppy, but no lingering bitterness. Clean. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Taste like malt liquor and IPA mixed. It is about the only IPA in the gas stations around here. Barely drinkable.

355ml bottle. Aroma is malty, citrus, light coffee. A clear golden color with a huge but fast decreasing white head. A nice bitter and light sweet taste. A good dryness, soft carbonation some malty after taste. Very nice IPA.
