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.
