    Totally agree. Sam Adams makes some of the worst IPAs in the craft beer world. I can get a 22oz of Third Voyage for $3 and still always pass it over. The Deconstructed is a great idea, but they need a much better base beer for it to be worth while.
    The only Hopology beer I thought was any good was the Tasman IPA.

    My brother was recently telling me about how much he enjoyed the Rebel IPA, so I view it with guarded optimism and would like to give it a shot. However I've only seen it for like $9.50/sixer. When I can get Lagunitas Maximus and Southern Tier 2xONE for approximately the same price I'm skipping Rebel every time.

    Where did you find/hear this? I tried to look up info on if it was coming out again and I couldn't locate anything. The Deconstructed sounds like a really cool pack.

    Latitude 48 is completely forgettable. Rebel was decent but nothing I'd go out of my way to drink again. I agree that Sam Adams is not punching in its weight class in the American IPA game.

    Single Hop Hallertau won Gold at GABF a couple years back in the English IPA category

    SA needs to make a German or English variety pack. Probably wouldn't sell though but I would buy it.

    I strongly disagree. I've had both fresh and while Latitude 48 is a solid IPA, Rebel tastes more like a pale ale. I'd take Latitude over Rebel any day.

    This sentence is funny on many different levels.

    Yes I prefer Lattitude as well. It has a more unique taste and does not "claim" to be be anything like Rebel(which is ok but not really "west coast" imo).
