look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75
12oz bottle poured into a shaker pint. Best before July 2014.
A - Golden in color with perfect clarity. Large/pillowy white head from a strong pour. Plenty of lacing.
S - Piney, decisively floral. Hints at some tropical aromas. No real sign of malts but that's working for me.
T - Starts with a quick flash of honey malt sweetness. Hop flavor comes across resiny and in the pine realm and then transitions to a healthy dose of bitterness. Finishes very dry and leaves lasting hop oils.
M - Medium body, light carbonation, dry.
O - Not big traditional citrus aromas. Classic approach to bitterness with the bite waiting at the back. The name "Rebel IPA" gave me the expectation that this will be different than most American IPAs but for that style this one is safe down the middle.
Recommendation - Worth a try but don't go out of your way.

A: golden with a bright white head. Decent lacing.
S: Pine, slight citrus. But resinous and piney, big time. Smells fantastic. Surprised at how fantastic this smells.
T: Close to the nose, with a bit more citrus present. Resinous and pineyand delicious. Typical West coast hops. Crisp, but noticeable maltiness. Very balanced.
M: Medium carbonation. Light on the tongue, guess I'd say medium mouthfeel.
O: Very impressed. Very sold IPA, and for the price, I can't beat it around here. Sure there are better, but for a year round, cheap IPA, it's definitely something I could drink a lot of.
