Beers with Peps: Brews Review- Samuel Adams Rebel IPA


Hey readers I was very lucky to be able to spent some time in Boston recently. Which included a great tour of the Samuel Adams brewery. So what better way to celebrate a great tour than with a beer review. I've picked Rebel IPA as it is easy to find here in Canada, stocked in most LCBOs. So you guys have no excuse for not trying it.

Details

Name: Rebel IPA
Style: IPA
Brewery: Samuel Adams (https://www.samueladams.com/)
Country: Boston, USA
Price: $13.80 CAD for a 6 Pack of bottles. $2.30 a bottle.
ABV: 6.5%
Commercial Fluff:
"Rebel IPA is brewed with 5 varieties of West coast hops: cascade, simcoe, centennial, chinook, & amarillo. It’s everything we love about West coast style IPA’s. Big citrus & grapefruit flavors with subtle pine notes for a flavorful refreshing brew."
Own Opinion

Sight: This beer beer pours a clear orange tinted yellow, with a good lively white head. Looks to have good carbonation with bubbles running up the beer.
Aroma: Nice light hoppy, citrus fruit aroma. Also has hint of toffee about it suggesting a good malty base.
Taste: Hit straight away by citrus zing from the hops. A pleasant medium mouthfeel and finishes with a refreshing bitterness. Very easy to drink, six was consumed with ease and was left wanting more.
Would I buy it again? Yes.
Unsurprisingly the masters of beer have produced a beer I like. This may not always be my first choice depending on the bar (so much choice these days). But this is a great beer to take to house parties and share with friends. It's one of those beers that I like to call a bar tester, if you get given a bad pint of this then you are in a bad bar! So please leave that bar immediately and maybe complain if you want.

Have you tried this beer drop me comment either here or on google+ and until next time keep drinking!
