Rebel Rider IPA; Around The World In 50 Beers
Samuel Adams has a winner on their hands. As a guy who doesn't reach for an IPA first, or ever, they can overpower me pretty easily. Generally by the end of the beer the curious taste and sting of the hops becomes difficult to drink.
Just the facts:
Bottle temp at opening: 38 degrees.
Drinking temp: 40 degrees.
Nose: Skunky Hops.
Taste: Strong, but not bitter.

Not so the case with the Rebel Rider IPA. This is like "light IPA" or maybe IPA for beginners--but for me it drank all the way through without that bitter shiver some IPA's can give you. Loved this beer!
Note: When I set the bottle on my phone (because coaster) it snapped the second photo, so I put it in here!
