Rebel Grapefruit IPA

Samuel Adams' Rebel IPA recently got a grapefruit kick. Today I'm checking out Rebel Grapefruit IPA. 6.3% alcohol. 52 IBU. Enjoy Before May 2016.

Nice generic fruity and hoppy aroma. Tons of grapefruit rind and citrus bitterness come right from sip #1. Grassy, astringent too. A little sweeter orange flavor does eventually show at the finish, especially after warming a bit. I definitely recommend letting this beer warm up some as it's otherwise a one note beer. Not overly bitter, just with that astringency. Not bad, not awesome.
