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.

I had completely avoided buying this beer, I happened to be at a bar in which a sample was opened and I was offered a taste. I honestly think this is terrible. A sad attempt at a West Coast IPA. Totally out of balance, in the worst way possible. The smell is better than the taste. As my beer warmed, the smell turned to hops mixed with urine. I don’t know what the hell they did to this thing, but it isn’t good. The taste is hoppy with some malt, but it completely falls short. I tasted this against a Stone IPA, and guess what? Stone blew it away. Wow. Just a shit beer.

R4N5H (369) - SINGAPORE - AUG 30, 2015
12oz bottle poured into a tulip glass on 29-Aug-2015. Hazy golden amber colour with a thin white head which quickly dissipates. Aroma of kiwi, citrus, malt and pine. Slightly sweet but not overdone. Flavours of tropical fruit, sherbet, hops together with a good malt backbone. Bittersweet finish.

Bottle from Dick’s Last Resort. Decent hoppiness coming off of it, but really just left me wondering why I needed another IPA.

Hopmaestro (659) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 24, 2015
Aroma is sweet malts and medium hops. Fruity from ripe summer fruits. Taste is rather sweet at first but develops some decent bitterness in the end. A little "grey" feeling over this one.

ljthiessen (750) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 13, 2015
Bottle. Clear golden amber pour with a thin head. Some pine and resin, subtle fruit. A decent IPA with a good balance, but thin and mostly underwhelming.

tomer (2248) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - AUG 13, 2015
Bottle, smallish head, lught gazt and a bit pale orange color, herbal woody aroma with a jammy hint, light grainy jammy flavor with a medium citrusy bitterness. Disappointing.

Changed (397) - Ithaca, New York, USA - AUG 1, 2015
12oz bottle, straight from it. Aroma is grapefruit, hop. Flavor is lemony, grapefruit, grass, moderately hoppy. Kind of a nice departure from the super palate destroyers lately. Not a bad offering considering it’s Sam Adams.
