Dark gold with small head. Smells mostly of pineapple hops. Was expecting a super hop overload in the taste with 5 different hops but didnít 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.

Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - APR 17, 2014
Rebel IPA $2 single poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass. Best by June 2014. Appearance: Insanely gorgeous beer. Pours a golden yellow with perfect clarity. Fluffy off-white head that just sticks around and doesnít move for awhile. Heavy initial lacing. Canít ask for much more. (4.5/5) Smell:Decent grapefruit aroma. Really a lot of malty sweetness. A bit of pine. Actually pretty damn underwhelming. It almost smells a bit stale, but itís not. eh. (3.5/5) Taste/feel: Mega malt sweetness. Tastes like a hopped up pale ale rather than an IPA. Caramel malt at the beginning, and especially on the end. A bit thin with moderate carbonation. Bittersweet finish with some of the grapefruit and pine bouncing off each other. (3.5/5, 3.75/5) I thought some may say this is a good starterís IPA just because itís made by Sam Adams (generally thought of as a training wheels brewery), but it actually is a pretty good one for people stepping into IPAs. Slightly bitter, but more sweet, so it could turn a lot of people on to the world of hops. I guess this really is a rebel IPA, as itís not all-too-much like a typical India Pale Ale. 3.75 overall just because I like it as a beer to get people started. West Coast IPA though? Methinks not. 3.75/5

On draft. Pours clear golden color with white head. Served way too cold. Took 20 minutes before aroma bloomed. aroma was caramel malt, citrus hops. Flavor started sweet caramel malt and finished with a cirtrus hop. This beer was good but I think advertising it as a west coast IPA hurts it. Itís way too balanced for west coast. Maybe they mean the west coast of the Boston Harbor.

MarkBarnes (372) - Waterville, New York, USA - APR 16, 2014
16 Apr 2014, draft @ Marble Hill Inn, Sherrill NY. Straw color, ring lacing. Dry, tart IPA. Hoppy, but malt lacks staying power. Fair.

solidfunk (2999) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 15, 2014
I prefer the regular boston lager. Some sweetness, some hops. Not a great overall package. Finishes with light bitterness. On tap at DC Beer Festival.

troyc (2200) - Illinois, USA - APR 15, 2014
[Tap] Clear yellow color with a soapy white foam head. Aroma is of citrus and grassy hops. Taste is moderately bitter and includes a lot of pale malty notes as well. Lingering bitterness is light but pleasant. Thin palate and not a ton of complexity.
