Samuel Adams Rebel Juiced IPA

The Samuel Adams line of beers are from the Boston Brewing Company of Boston, Massachusetts. This is a variant on their Rebel IPA line, adding in mango flavor.

The beer pours a clear and deep golden in color. There is a very tall, thick and foaming head of white. The aroma is a blast of fruit, nectar of mango and citrus juices. The taste is toasted wheat, mango nectar, and a mix of citrus flavors. The finish is quite bitter. The beer drinks smooth and easy with soft carbonation. Like the Mango Mosaic from Breckendridge, this is a nice concept, but in practice it is just mango nectar over toasted wheat, with a too bitter finish. It just doesn't gel.
