This week's Sunday Night Suds looks at Samuel Adams Rebel Juiced IPA.
Over the past week I have tried two mango influenced beers and I hope to review them iyh in successive Sunday Night Suds posts. The "older" mango infused beer (introduced in and around November 2016) is the Samuel Adams Rebel Juiced IPA.
This is another offering in the wildly successful Samuel Adams "Rebel" series. To date, I have not had a bad experience with any of the beers in this series and they keep pumping out new varieties.
The Rebel Juiced IPA takes a hoppy IPA and adds mango to the underlying grapefruit and citrus from the hops. Although it is obvious that the sweet mango juice has been added to the brew process, it does not mask the underlying hops and actually compliments it quite nicely.
Although this beer is 6.2% abv by volume you would not know it. I would recommend this beer with sweet chicken dishes (Mrs KB and I had it with rotisserie from the kosher Price Chopper in Albany).
The Samuel Adams Rebel Juiced IPA is under the Kosher Supervision of the Star-K and has a Star-K certification mark on the can. To see what the experts on Beer Advocate think about this brew, please follow this link - beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/35/255872.
As always, please remember to drink responsibly and to never waste good beer unless there is no designated driver.
