Another example of Sam Adams rolling out good brews This is one of the few IPAs I actually like! It didn’t have the overly hoppy finish like most of them do.

Dégustée dans un verre "Straffe Hendrik",belle robe orangée surmontée d’une mousse blanc cassé peu persistante avec une bonne carbonatation.Le nez nous offre des arômes de houblons et d’agrumes(pamplemousse,citron)La bouche est à l’image du nez avec une forte amertume qui domine petit à petit l’ensemble.Une bière agréable à boire mais ne laissant pas une finale très longue,mais plutôt sèche. La "Rebelle" est rapide!!!.14,5/20

appiantiqua (199) - Lyon, FRANCE - JUL 17, 2017
Dégustée dans un verre "Straffe Hendrik". Température de début 6 à 7°. Belle robe orangée surmontée d’une fine mousse blanc cassé de persistance moyenne; faible carbonatation. Nez très parfumé et agréable sur le pamplemousse et le citron avec également des touches florales. Goût caractéristique des IPA avec des saveurs d’agrumes et une amertume prononcée.Les notes houblonnées sont également très présentes et l’alcool bien intégré. La finale de longueur modérée reste essentiellement sur l’amertume avec une certaine sécheresse. Une bonne IPA pour se rebeller contre la chaleur!!!! 14,5/20

Bottle, short before the best-before. Slightly hazy, amber color, small white head. Fruity smell, berries and tropical fruity. Dry taste, high bitterness. Resinous, dried berries aftertaste. Thin mouthfeel, low carbonation.

Botella. Golden, medium white head. Malty hoppy herbal aroma. Pleasant malty hoppy herbal dry flavour.

Interesting flavor. NW hop aroma. Mal tier than a typical NW IPA. Reasonably well balanced like a Sam Adams with hops tossed on. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A 355ml bottle with a notched best before date of March 2018. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass. It was a nice and clear dark orange copper colour with an almost two finger white head with good retention while leaving lots of nice lacing. Aromas of sweet caramel and biscuit malt with hints of grapefruit and pine. Tastes very malty caramel and biscuit, with light pine and grapefruit and some lasting bitterness on the finish. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a dry-ish finish. Overall not bad, but too malty an IPA for my liking. Apparently the new version of the Rebel IPA they made in 2017 is more tropical fruity and I feel that may be more my thing.

Golden clear appearance with a short white head. Malty, piney annd hoppy aromas. Taste is citrus, pine and grass.

rand (1700) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 27, 2017
Bottle 355 ml / Amstein - St-Légier (CH). Golden amber beer with a short white head and floats. Malted aromas, caramel, tropical and citrusy fruity, peach-apricot. The taste is similar, perfumed with fruity and grassy hop with pine and coated with caramel. Average bitterness and average sweetness, Quite drinkable.

Not bad, just not a great IPA. Not as hoppy as I would have liked. Quite fizzy/foamy, not a great aroma to it and didn’t improve at all as it warmed up. Drinkable but not hugely enjoyable compared to what else is available at the price I paid (€2.65). 6.5% so getting up there. I need more flavour in my IPA’s so I wouldn’t buy this again - well maybe if it was on special at half price and there weren’t any other IPA’s to choose from. Bought in France May 2017, had a dec 2017 best by date.
