Appearance: Brilliantly clear, golden beer pours with a thick topper of creamy, white foam. The foam melts to 2mm of cover. Clear carbonation rising from base of snifter.
Smell: Extreme green gop smell. Citrusy, piney, juicy. Absolutely excellent hoppy aroma.
Taste: Light bitterness. Clearly not much of a bittering addition. Very smooth with not much lingering taste.
Mouth-Feel: Light to medium body. Shy of fizzy carbonation, but still up front. Not much to write home about.
Overall: A technically good IPA. A little industrial and boring, with no real jazz. Good if you're mowing the lawn, but I wouldn't bring it to a friend's house. Then again, I'm not that big of a fan if IPAs.

IPA has been my beer of choice for any years. I live close to Boston and have been to Samuel Adams Brewery. This Rebel IPA was not available on my tour. First sampled it when in Florida. I really liked this beer.

a: Wonderful gold color, 1 finger head, lots of lace.
s: Light hop/citrus pine aroma, light malt.
t: Well balanced smooth taste, citrus, and light hop presence.
m: Full body with no after taste, very smooth.
o: Easy drinkable, another Samuel Adams winner.

This beer does not need any improvement.
