Rebel IPA is Samuel Adams’ brewers’ first take on a West Coast style IPA. They started brewing it in 2014, but three years later, the brewers challenged themselves to make it even better. They undertook “Project Lupulus,” which optimized the flavor of each hop variety by changing the blend and ratio of hops. As part of this project, Sam Adams collaborated with a hop breeder in Yakima Valley, WA to create a new hop variety that is proprietary and exclusive to them called HBC 566. Rebel IPA now has a more intense juicy, tropical and citrus flavor supported by a leaner body and a crisp, clean finish to optimize the hop character.

Samuel Adams Rebel IPA
Samuel Adams, the man, did this in the name of American Independence. Jim Koch did this in the name of Better Beer. Jim Koch named his beer after Sam Adams because he shared a similar spirit in leading the fight for independence and the opportunity for all Americans to pursue happiness and follow their dreams.
The Boston Brewery is where all our beers get their start, with the exception of Boston Lager, which was born in our founder Jim Koch’s kitchen. It is the smallest of our three breweries, but it is the most important.
We’re constantly innovating and pushing the boundaries of brewing to make sure that from the ingredients to the glass, every pint of Sam Adams beer is as good (if not better) than the last.
