Maker: Samuel Adams Brewery, Boston, Massachusetts, USA Beer: Rebel IPA (bottled, 355ml) Style: American IPA ALC.VOL.: 6.5% "Rebel IPA is brewed with 5 varieties of West coast hops: cascade, simcoe, centennial, chinook, & amarillo. It’s everything we love about West coast style IPA’s. Big citrus & grapefruit flavors with subtle pine notes for a flavorful refreshing brew." [brewery notes] Colour: Light orange, hazy, decent creamy white head. Nose: Pinewood, herbs, faint caramel, rather mild grapefruit (less aggressively fruity than some APAs). Texture: Medium body, not fizzy, but not too full in mouthfeel either. Taste: Grapefruit (again, as not as fruity as some), barley, mild herbs, faint pinewood and caramel at first (not sweet!), wee bit of alcohol noticeable. Nicely balances hoppy pinewood and creamy caramel towards the middle, finish is bitter, hoppy, floral, with a faint resinous note.Lasting but only moderately bitter aftertaste, with mild citrus. Impressions: A good deal maltier than most of APAs, also less gratuitously fruity and resinous than some, less "in your face" overall. Well-rounded APA, a wee bit alcoholic.

Beersiveknown (3763) - NORTHERN IRELAND - MAY 29, 2015
Bottle at home from shepherd neame, cheers lightly hazy burnished gold with white lacing. Sweet caramel and slightly saponic with floral notes. Low carbonation, orange blossom, touch of pithy bitterness. Moderate bitterness, malty backbone, fairly decent, citrus pith finish.

aroma - citrus and other notes, tastes very good. Not too bitter but hoppy backbone. Pleasing for an IPA newbie.

rodenbach99 (3498) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 18, 2015
Une bouteille. Une robe ambrée avec une belle formation de mousse. Un nez assez puissant de houblon résineux avec une touche de caramel. La bouche est amère, résineuse, une finale sur les houblons herbeux. Manque d’agrumes.

Voilà une une bière de Sam que j’avais hâte de voir au Québec! Les houblons s’étalent avec affront sur robe une juste assez mince. Savoureux (En 140 caractères / #TwitterStyle)

edpeg (851) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 15, 2015
AMber cloudy body with yeast and beige medium thick head. Aroma oranges, fruits, pineapple, typical fruity hops. Palate is soupy mouthful and smooth. Taste is medium bitter not too egdy. Overall easy to drink balanced IPA, standard stuff, enjoyable but nothing revolutionary here.

Ughsmash (7331) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Bottled. Poured lighter golden with a sticky white head. The aroma picked up an odd blend of hops I couldn’t quite put a finger on over sweet caramel.. fairly meaty overall. The flavor found caramel and biscuity malts at the core, with lightly-spicy pine and citrusy bitterness around.. lots of residual sugars and some bitter citrusy notes on the finish. Medium-bodied with fairly thick carbonation.. not all that hoppy or rebellious.
