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.

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

davidezdonz (487) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - JUN 8, 2017
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.

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.

76AD (2) - NEW ZEALAND - MAY 12, 2017 does not count
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.

pivnizub (10573) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - APR 23, 2017
Bottle: Deep golden, hazy, small - but stable - white head; mild to moderate sweet-bitter nose of citric and herbal hops, supported by some secret pale malt with a tinge of toasted malt; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied and soft; lingering and drier herbal-piney finish, again balanced by some malt. Not great, but surely good...

Phagelund (170) - DENMARK - APR 23, 2017
Golden colour with white foam. Aroma is mostly malts. Taste is hops but not that fresh.

Pour Orange golf with an off white head. Aroma is orange, grapefruit and peaches. A good sweet and bitter balanced flavour. Decent but nothing special.
