Let’s wrap up this week with something a little closer to home: Samuel Adams Rebel IPA, 6.5% abv. Dark gold beer under a white head with a rich malt nose. the palate is a blend of hops and malt, with very good bitterness, good light carbonation, medium alcohol that blends in smoothly, and medium-plus to high flavor intensity of bread, caramel, hints of grain, and pine/herbal notes. Another refreshing choice for summer.
