Samuel Adams Rebel Rouser Double IPASamuel Adams Rebel Rouser Double IPA
Notes: Bold, citrusy, and piney, our double IPA isn’t just a bigger version of Rebel IPA. Instead we explored a different balance of hop character, including Bravo & Galaxy hops, and upped the ante on their flavor and expression for a brew that’s intense yet enjoyable through every sip.

When the selection is only the "normal" choices, this will suffice. I consider it the Natural Ice of IPA's. Not my first choice, but acceptable. It's my last choice before going to whiskey.

12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass.

L---Clear golden orange color. Thick, slightly off white head faded after a while and left excellent lacing.

S---Fruity. Grapefruit and orange. A bit of hoppy pine in there as well.

T---Tropical fruits from the nose come through. Light pineyness. Some malt backbone for balance.

F---A slight bit of resinousness. Feels smooth & lighter than expected. Good carbonation.

O---A good, but not great DIPA. If it wasn't supposed to be a double, I probably would've rated it higher, but it says it's a double, so....

12 Oz Bottle poured into glass
Look - Very big head of foam which is slow to fade away. Golden colored and some nice lacing on glass
Smell - Strong aroma of hops, lots of the typical ipa - grapefruit, pine, tropical fruits like mango, orange, lemon, sugarcane grass. I'll say it smells fresh even though it was bottled a few months ago.
Taste - I love beers like this because there are several layers of flavor to go through. Starts out with biscuit bread, then the fruity tropical hops kick in then the malt comes in and just dominates the palate. Tremendous profile on this, heavy body for sure but not as bitter as it could be for the IBU's. It does have a good balance of sweetness to the hop bitterness but that being said it certainly is sweet. This beer has character and i appreciate that in an IPA, and the alcohol is hardly picked up even though it's 8.4%

Overall, i think this beer is outstanding, it tastes great, not too much carbonation. One of the best, if not the best Sam Adams beer in my opinion. Give it a try if you like hops and strong beer...I give this beer a solid grade of A

Picked up a single from TW Arrowhead 3-1-18 for $1.99. Best by January 2018 - doh, not again! Stored in my fridge since purchase.

Beer poured orange with a beautiful white head that has some great hang time.

Nose is grapefruit and orange, pretty nice.

Taste follows the nose, grapefruit and orange along with some passion fruit blends nicely with a strong malt base. Finish has a touch of pine tingle but pretty well balanced.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and smooth.

Overall a solid beer that i would have again. I thought i had reviewed when this brew first came out but t could have been lost with past server crashes. Cheers!

L - Clear, darker amber look with 1-finger foamy white head. Light carbonation with good lacing and retention.
S - Bready malt but really nothing much else.
T - follows the nose with caramel malt. Pretty bitter and alcohol warmth.
F - fairly crisp on the tongue. Full mouth feel.
O - This one really warms me up. I feel like I couldn’t find consistency with this beer but I’d like it.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Very fresh.

Bold looking amber-copper color with a hearty 1-plus F dirty white cap. Good retention and lacing.

Some pine aroma mixed with musty basement air. Any pleasant aroma is playing hide n seek - and winning.

Caramel malt and harsh citrus rind.

Full bold body that runs full-on bitter.

There are good two things going for this mess; it looks good and the 8.4% abv is nicely disguised. I issued threes as a courtesy. Bitterness trumps aroma and flavor.

12 oz. can poured into Willibecher.

A- Dark golden honey in color. Head is great. Off white, bubbly. Great lacing and retention.

S- Pine, citrus pith with a sweet fruity biscuit.

T- Dull pith and pine bitterness, sweetness comes in the background, but not enough to round the beer out.

M- Body is full with a long lingering bittersweetness. Dull and pithy with some alcohol warmth.

O- This beer is really heavy, and hardly has any balance. Strong bitterness.
