Not bad but nothing to write home about. Malt completely over powers the hops. Itís good, just not really my idea of an IPA, but it is a pretty good ale.

Good beer, kind of flowery for my taste. It was more noticeable as the beer was more empty

Bottle into IPA glass. Pours a clear golden colour with very little head. Aroma is fruity hops with a little pineyness. Taste is piney with a little harsh bitterness. Decent. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

I think the problem with this beer isnít the taste. It tastes fine. Itís the whole rebel image thing. Itís just trying too hard to be something. Itís a pretty standard safe ipa. Most people who donít want a hop bomb will be able to drink this and say they drink ipa. Which is fine. I think itís great to have these IPAís that can get people into the style. Itís a wonderful style of beer that gets a lot of shit. Look, Rebel IPA is fine. Itís has a grassy, almost hoppy lager taste. It just tries too hard in my opinion.

Keg at Flying Scotsman, Stockholm. Clear golden, rich head. Buttery nose with some red apples. Sweet with medium-full body and clean, blown-up mouthfeel. Fizzy syrup and red apples. Sugary finish with some metal and notes of resin.

Arcadia (51) - DeLand, Florida, USA - JAN 20, 2015
Bottle from ABC. Pours a hazy gold with a frothy white head that sticks around - some great lacing as well. A little surprised by how nice this looks, actually, as itís my first time having it from the bottle. Aromas are pretty standard for a light IPA - pine, citrus, earth. Taste is pretty sweet and smooth overall with a light body and somewhat dry finish. Never blown away by this, but itís certainly not bad at all. Acquire.

Had on draft at Red Robin on 08.07.14. A: Caramel, citrus, and slight lemon. A: See through amber. It had a ring of head and lots of bubbles floating up. T: Caramel, lemon, and tropical fruit dominate. Flower is subtle. P: Somewhat crisp. O: This was supposed to be a West Coast style IPA, but it doesnít come close. There was also a strange icky-sweet malt presence that is now in Boston Lager too. It was drinkable, but the BBC should change the label.

Pours light golden with an off-white head. Smells of skunky pine. Taste is bittersweet thick pine and skunk.

Idiosynkrasie (4240) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JAN 13, 2015
355ml bottle. Clear golden colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Grassy and citrusy, hoppy aroma, a touch of pine, biscuity malty background - rather cautious overall. Taste is slightly sweet caramel malty, citrusy hoppy, hints of orange, mandarine, a touch of grapefruit, some plain bitterness; improved fruitiness in the finish.

Fragrant drinkable ipa. Hop profile was very decent. Good drinkability. Orange with lasting head.
