Ohhhh…. This one was good!!
Just gave Samuel Adams Rebel Grapefruit IPA a try last night. What a treat!
Here’s their description on the bottle: Tropical fruit and citrus notes from the hops and delivers a refreshing finish. – Cheers!
Also noted is that it is an ale brewed with grapefruit peel and grapefruit juice and natural flavor added.
Well, they certainly delivered as stated. The grapefruit really came through, which is what I totally look for now when trying an IPA. It was also the lightest IPA that I’ve tried so far. Very pleasant. I did pick up the tropical fruit/citrus notes and it has a really good end note. From the first sniff, the first taste to the finish, it is really, really good. Hubby and I both enjoyed this one and we both agree that we will definitely purchase and drink this one again.
So, go try one for yourself this weekend – And cheers!
