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.

UPDATED: SEP 17, 2017 Bottle from a supermarket. Pours amber with a very thin head. It has a hint of cocoa but is otherwise dry and bland. The name suggests something exciting and dangerous- it ain't!

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2017 Clean copper colour with white head. Mild but sweet, malty aroma. Taste hoppy and herbal.

Looks amazing, long lasting big head. Wasn’t impressed by smell as I could find alcohol and malts more then hops (had it 1 month before its by date) Medium bitter with citrus notes and nothing much more. Liked the body of this IPA as it had quite a bit of it.

I like this one, shame its nearly gone. Got it because it was reduced. Super hoppy, lots of fruity citrus, not as much grapefruit as expected though, nice. Goes down easy for a 6.5%er though. Another nice North American IPA.

(Samuel Adams Rebel IPA (All through 2016)) Bottle 355ml at home, served into a shaker, ABV 6.5%
Deep orange colour on the body, clear, huge and rising white thick head on top.
Aroma has nice citrusy notes, light grapefruit, some floral notes too.
Taste has caramel malts, old grass, light citrus, ripe oranges.
Medium thin body, good carbonation, quite dry on the palate.
Not bad.

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 (263) - 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!!!!

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
