Sam Adams: Rebel Grapfruit IPA | Fruit Beer | Beer Review

I'm not going to reiterate my overall opinion (for which I have already written about in an accompanying editorial about Fruit-Enhanced Beers).  You can read that for yourself by clicking on the link HERE.

Today, I'm reviewing Sam Adams: Rebel Grapefruit IPA.  And once again, I am presented with "Beer-flavored Fruit Juice".  I think this one is actually worse than the New Belgium Citradelic.  The grapefruit flavor is much stronger. And even worse is that the bitterness in the beer is not a hop bitterness, but an overwhelming rind bitterness. To give you an idea of what I'm talking about, peel a grapefruit and chew on the rind.  And… there you go.
