Weekly Online Newsletter Vol.15
One of my favorite memories as a youngster was having breakfast with my father. Most often it was something quick and easy. I would eat as fast as I could before I rushing outside for the school bus waiting at the end of the driveway. Quite often, we ate sliced grapefruit with a little sugar sprinkled on top. When I tried the new Rebel Grapefruit IPA for the first time, I was whisked back to the memory of eating grapefruit with my father.
This IPA does a great job of balancing the hop character with the citrusy acidity of the grapefruit with a backbone of subtle malt character – Heck, I may even have one for breakfast!
Brewed with real grapefruit for an added punch of citrusy goodness that amplifies the tropical fruit and citrus notes from the hops. A hint of juiciness rounds out the bitterness and brings a refreshing finish to this bold, bright, thirst-quenching IPA.
6.3% ABV, 52 IBUs, 8 SRM
- The combination of grapefruit juice and peel delivers the distinct bright juicy tartness of the fruit that enhances the citrusy and “juicy” flavors from the Mosaic and Citra hops.
- We use Star Ruby and Star Rio red grapefruit grown in Southern California. The peel is added in the kettle to impart a tart, sharp character while the juice is added right before filtration for a big, grapefruit juiciness that rounds out the touch of bitterness from the peel and hops.
- Mosaic hops known for their great tropical fruit, citrus, & berry notes, are relatively new to the scene released in ‘12 but we first began experimenting
