Boston Beer Company (Samuel Adams) Rebel Grapefruit IPA American IPA at 6.3% ABV (US$1.99 at Publix Super Market at Lake Cay Commons, 355 ml, best before 1-Aug-2016, acquired 30-Apr-2016, reviewed 30-Apr-2016)

Appearance: clear pale amber with one finger of rocky ivory head, good retention and spotty lacing. (3/5) Aroma: grapefruit (juice, not pith), sweet caramel malt, mild pine and earth. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, lingering bitter finish. (3/5)

Not bad at all – but I am a sucker for a grapefruit IPA. All things considered, pretty good for a fairly mass-market beer. (13/20)
