4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark gold with small head. Smells mostly of pineapple hops. Was expecting a super hop overload in the taste with 5 different hops but didn’t get that. Hops are more subdued but still a good amount of citrus, spice, little bit of pine. Decent IPA but would like to have had more of the hop bite to it.

From tap pours a clear yellow with white head. Aroma was all earthy hops. Taste was this, very bitter with not enough malt to balance.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft, appears dark orange with a white head and leaves good lacing throughout. Aroma is muted, light citrus hops, caramel and biscuit malts underneath. Taste is muted as well, I get some of the bitter hops and citrus notes but they at not in your face as I expect from a "west coast" IPA, just seems to be lacking in substance, but its drinkable and I guess that counts for something, wouldn’t buy again.

Draught. This is a nice little simple ipa without much to set it apart from the pack. A west coast Sam Adams.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thin white foam head with minimal retention a clear amber body. Some lacing. Aromas of pale malts, wheat, some biscuit, and grapefruit, pineapple for citrus which is mild. Where are the west coast hop aromas? the sweetness is very muted as is the citrus. You can tell there is some candy citrus mostly tangerine here but it’s understated, and its quite astringent. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Overall it seems overly simple and plain. Not even close to an west coast ipa.

0,355 Flasche von bier-deluxe. Gelbe, leicht wässrige Farbe, viel Schaum, wenig Kohlensäure. Riecht hopfig-würzig, nach Kiefernnadeln und dann nach Zitrusfrüchten. Schmeckt würzig, süßlich, harzig und wird dann bitter hopfig und minimal süß im Abgang.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours golden with a big white foamy head. Aroma is strong citrus notes, mainly grapefruit. The extreme bitterness I really enjoy in an IPA, not much malt flavouring in there, bit of citrus flavouring. A pretty solid IPA.

I BOUGHT A MIX CASE OF THE REBEL ROUSER IPA’S AND IT IS THE WORSE THING I HAVE EVER TASTED. TASTE LIKE DRINKING A PINE TREE. COULDN’T DRINK IT. WASTED MY MONEY. I HAD NEVER BOUGHT SAMUEL ADAMS BEER BECAUSE OF THE PRICE, WISH I HAD NOT WASTED MY MONEY ON IT. CAN’T UNDERSTAND ANYONE BUYING IT.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A decent IPA, medium hop bitterness with come citrus and spice in the smell and taste, making for a interesting taste. High drinkability rating and a decent abv percentage make this beer nice too. It’s not very complex or pronounced in any way, but for it’s price it’s not bad. Perhaps one of the better Sam Adam’s brand beers, and enjoyable for what it is.
