Great offering from Samuel Adams. One of the original microbreweries, Samuel Adams captured the perfect blend of bitterness and citrus in this refreshing IPA.

12oz bottle into a tall glass. best before May 2018, so a few weeks late on this one.

Clasic ipa look on the pour.Almost clear mid yellow body with decent foamy white head initially leaving nice lacing before dissipating to a thick ring & faint covering.

Gentle hop and malt aromas.

On tasting, this is a nicely balanced IPA. Solid malt background holding up a decent hop bite.

Medium on the mouth, faintly bitter on the finish.

Overall, a good, solid, sessionable mild ipa. Could slam these all afternoon on a warm summers day.

A great IPA love the smell and not too overly hoppy. Pours a nice copper color with good head to the beer. Very easy to drink and a great beer for the summer time. I haven't had a Rebel IPA in years and I really do love Samuel Adams beers this is one of their best offerings. By the way the packaging Samuel Adams does for this beer is great.

I just purchased an outdated 12 pack for 7.99 to help take the pressure off the expensive stuff. I was leary as I am not much of a Sam Adams fan but was surprised at how good it was. It poured goldenish with a decent head. It smells like a decent IPA and tastes like a decent IPA. Floral, hoppy, and well balanced. I would not go out of my way to seek it out but at a good price I found it to be quite enjoyable. I can best describe it as a decent thirst quenching crushable IPA. Not a stand out but I have nothing bad to say about it. I liked it.

Not a bad IPA from a company not usually associated with craft beers. Nice darker amber color with mild head, not much lingering lacing. Smells faintly of floral and citrus hops. Tastes of mild floral and citrus hops and malt. Some mild bitterness throughout but actually quite pleasant and not overwhelming at all. Fairly light mouthfeel, some medium carbonation throughout though it faded somewhat as the beer warmed. All it all, a fairly decent IPA that I would drink again in a pinch.
