This is Sam Adam's first attempt at creating a West Coast-style IPA. It has an incredible hop aroma but doesn't go too crazy with the hops on the taste. This makes for a very drinkable IPA but it is more on the reserved side for West Coast-style IPAs, even though you do get the West Coast hop flavors. Rebel could be considered a gateway beer for those who aren't used to the hop intensity of beers from the left coast.

Middle of the road for Sam's Rebel Series. As west coast IPA's go, more of an intro for the first time IPA drinker. Step it up to the Rouser (Double IPA) for more intense hoppiness or ease on back with the Rider for an all day Session. All three are nice IPA's but I prefer the Rouser.

Agree with Dafozz. This has very good flavor but it's a little tame. Rebel Rouser is more my cup of tea. I haven't had the Rebel Rider yet, will give
