We’re dropping a little hazy Double IPA dankness on all ya’ll today with a little Rebel Raw by Samuel Adams!

This is a brewery that shunned the IPA up until recent years now throwing their hat in the New England hazy IPA ring, so at first glance, you would be interested at best, suspect at worst with such a beer from Boston. Combine that “newbie” status with IPAs, along with a lot of unwarranted poo-pooing on ol’ Sam Adams because that’s just the “cool” thing to do, a lot of people might turn a blind eye to such an offering. But we let our eyes, nose, and mouth do the talking here at Massive Beer Reviews, so watch to see what this 10 percent ABV pounder can of haze has to offer!

Massive Beer Reviews is an award-winning YouTube beer review, brewery, and culture show based out of Northeastern Pennsylvania. With almost 20 years in the craft beer game, we aim to cover all styles, but pull no punches when it comes to our opinions on the beers we cover.

Beer is inherently a subjective subject, so while we make enjoy something more than you or vice versa, we can – many more times than not – tell the difference and differentiate between a beer we don’t like and a beer that is made badly, which is typically illustrated in the reviews.

While we take our show, comments, and approach seriously, we also know a stick-up-the-butt viewpoint on the lovely art that is beer is not what we want to portray, nor something we would want to watch ourselves, so keep on the lookout for blue language, random silliness, maybe a little bit of drunkenness, and some headstrong opinions.

We encourage watchers’ input and love a good debate, so if you see or hear something you love, hate, or anything in-between, feel free to reach out to us in the comments section, through e-mail, or on any of the various social media platforms listed below!
