Samuel Adams Rebel Raw (Heady Topper Killer?) | Beer Geek Nation Craft Beer Reviews

Our brewers are really excited to announce that Rebel Raw, a big, hoppy double IPA with a 10% ABV and 100 IBUs, is now on shelves! Rebel Raw is a limited release with a 35 day shelf life. IPA lovers can only find it in Boston, Chicago, New York City, Philadelphia and Washington DC.

Samuel Adams Utopias (27% ABV) | Beer Geek Nation Craft Beer Reviews

To create Utopias, the brewers at Sam Adams used traditional brewing ingredients including all four types of Noble hops, which add a slightly earthy, herbal taste. The spiciness of the hops really comes alive. In fact, Utopias MMII has even been described by some as almost “fiery” — a fitting description for the strongest beer in history. Beyond the special brand of hops, Utopias features ingredients that truly set it apart from other varieties of beer. Utopias MMII contains caramel and Vienna malts for its rich amber color and several different types of yeast including a variety found in champagne. $100 a bottle and it’s limited to 3000 bottles, which look like copper brew kettles.
