3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bright gold, transparent color, with small white head that diminishes quickly leaving minimal lacing. Aroma has faint grapefruit hops and is a little musty. Flavor has bitter, resinous hops, light grapefruit, corn and bubble gum. It’s okay overall, but feel it’d be better priced around $8 a 6pk for it’s average quality compared to others.
Botella. Golden, medium white head. Malty hoppy herbal aroma. Pleasant malty hoppy herbal dry flavour. sPOKEtacular (10) - - JUN 14, 2017
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.

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. greenmanalishi (547) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 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 (10576) - 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. ChadPoole (478) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 20, 2017
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.
