February 10, 2017 — Rebel Juiced IPA, which was introduced at the end of last year on draft is now available in cans and bottles. A West Coast IPA infused with mango, Rebel Juiced is a medium-bodied beer with a slightly veiled golden color that brings a big tropical aroma of guava, passion fruit and mango. The tropical hop aroma gives way to a juicy, fruity flavor with a hint of sweetness, followed up by a clean, citrusy finish.

Mandarina hops: fruity aromas and flavors of tangerine and citrus
Zeus hops: earthy and spicy with citrusy undertones
