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.


Name: Rebel IPA
Style: IPA
Brewery: Samuel Adams (
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!
