Smells of grapefruit and pepper; tastes like pine, citrus and honey got together to party like it’s 1999. Course, it’s 2015 now. Nicely carbonated.

Me ha gustado bastante aunque no sea muy aromática. Cierto regustillo al final como a mosto. Maltosa con un toque dulce. Interesante. Volveré a meterla en mi gaznate ;)

Clear golden with minimal white head. Aroma is fruity and hoppy. Taste adds grapefruit and pine. West coast hops make it real. A decent commercial ale.

Overall really nice. A great aroma, really good appearance. A quite odd but not bad at all taste. Very hoppy and a strong flavor of grapefruit. Good job Sam.

Keg pour from Powder Keg Beer & Chili Festival. Aroma is herbs and light corn chip. Appearance is crystal clear golden yellow, nice effervescence, foamy white head with decent lacing. Taste is a bit of corn, moderate bitterness, herbs. Palate is light bodied with thin texture, lively carbonation. Overall, a pretty decent IPA.

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2015 Floral, orange, pineapple, caramel and rosemary aromas are well balanced. Lingers a little bit between sips, but not it’s neither oily nor sticky. A very underrated, tasty IPA and by the way is also a great bargain.

Bottle... Pours clear and amber with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The nose features pine, white pepper, grapefruit and honey. Medium to full-bodied with gentle carbonation. The flavor is actually very well-balanced and refreshing - notes of honey and white grapefruit zest. Short, crisp, refreshing finish.

Cerveja sem personalidade. Balanço entre malte e lupulo não satisfatorio. Persistência de amagor, lembrando os xaropes da infância.

Âmbar clara de média formação de espuma. Notas florais, cítricas, sugestões de pinho e malte ao fundo equilibrando o conjunto. Corpo leve com final médio e floral, com suave amargor no retrogosto

I had a couple of people tell me Rebel IPA was good IPA but I found it to be average at best and to be honest somewhat lacking. Hope I am not turning into one of those beer snobs but this was disappointing.
Aromas of pale malts, wheat, some biscuit, and slight grapefruit and other citrus. Hop aromas were very weak and the sweetness is very muted . IPAs are obviously on the bitter end of the spectrum but Rebel had almost an astringent quality (not good).
