Samuel Adams Rebel Grapefruit IPA

Samuel Adams Rebel Grapefruit IPA is the newest addition to the Rebel family of IPAs, which are brewed to showcase a wide range of hop intensities and characteristics. Rebel Grapefruit is brewed with real grapefruit for a big punch of citrus that amplifies the tropical fruit and citrus notes of one of the Sam Adams brewers’ favorite West Coast hops, Mosaic.

THE TOOLS
The combination of grapefruit juice and peel delivers a distinct bright, juicy tartness that brings out complementary notes in a variety of hops carefully selected by our brewers for their flavor and aroma. The brewers focused on showcasing Mosaic hops, with their sweeter fruit notes of Mandarin orange, pineapple, and grapefruit. These hops are relatively new to the brewing scene and when they were released in 2012 as HBC369, we fell in love with their flavor profile and first experimented with them in Latitude 48 IPA.

THE TRADE
Rebel Grapefruit IPA’s grapefruit flavor and aroma comes from grapefruit juice and peel, as well as hops that showcase similar flavors. Grapefruit peel is added in the kettle to impart a tart, slightly sharp character, while grapefruit juice is added right before the beer is filtered to provide a big, grapefruit juiciness. The juice rounds out the touch of bitterness from the peel and the four West Coast hop varieties to bring a refreshing finish to this bold, bright, thirst-quenching IPA.

THE LEGACY
India Pale Ales, popularly known as IPAs, were first brewed in the 18th century to satisfy the demand for beer from the British in India. At the time, pale ales, brewed with pale kilned malts, had become very popular in England as an alternative to darker, more traditional brown ales, porters, and stouts. American IPAs, like Rebel Grapefruit IPA, are decidedly hoppy and showcase more intensity than their traditional English counterparts.
