The Samuel Adams brewers have released two new brews to the Rebel IPA family: Rebel Rouser Double IPA and Rebel Rider Session IPA. These two new brews are inspired by the West Coast hops found in Rebel IPA, a West Coast-style IPA released for the first time in 2014. All brews in the Rebel IPA family are brewed to maximize the aromatics and flavors of the brewers’ favorite American hop varieties from the Pacific Northwest. In particular, these new brews follow Rebel IPA in emphasizing the fruity/juicy characteristics of the newer West Coast hop varieties like Amarillo and Simcoe. Samuel Adams Rebel Rouser is a Double IPA, a style brewed to showcase the hop character of West Coast hops at 85 IBUs and a higher alcohol content. Samuel Adams Rebel Rider is a Session IPA, a brew with intense hop flavors and aromas but with lower alcohol content and 45 IBUs for session drinking. Rebel Rider Session IPA is currently available on draft, in six-packs nationwide for a suggested retail price (SPR) of $7.99-$9.99, and in 12-packs for an SPR of $14.99-$17.99. Rebel Rouser Double IPA is currently available on draft and in six-packs nationwide for a suggested retail price of $8.99-$10.00. Prices vary by market.
