3.43/5 rDev -10%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
A: Bright, clear orange/amber color. Poured a 1 finger light tan head that dissipated to an even skim. Decanted in lazy bubbles. Lacing washed down the sides of the glass.
S: Light, sweet caramel and earthy/grassy hops. Hint of citrus and green apple aroma.
T: The flavor of crystal malt is followed quickly by sharply bitter hops. In the abbreaviated middle are earth and wet wood. The finish is bitter to balance and few flavors linger there.
M: Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Sharply bitter in a lingering finish that is smooth and dry.
D: I guess I thought it was an amber ale; it would have been pretty ordinary in that regard. For an EPA, may have expected a little more malt character in the flavor. All that said, easily drinkable and pretty good flavor and balance.

Part of a mixed 6 pack, which I think all brewerys should consider doing immediately, Rebel Pale Ale is an English version of the style brewed with East Kent Goldings and Fuggles.
It has a great redish amber color with perfect clarity. The head is basically non-existant.
Aroma is earthy (from the hops) and sweet like a red apple.
Flavor is bitter but certainly not the way we know it in the U.S. Rebel is earthy, grassy, and woody with a nice toasted malt backbone. Well balanced but leaning towards the English hops.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. It finishes bitter and dry.
Overall an Americanized Brit. Heavily hopped but with different varieties. Unusual but tasty. Worth a try if you see it.
