Brutal combines Oregon hops with English Malts. The Oregon grown Crystal hop is a triploid variety developed from the German Hallertau aroma hop variety with contributions from Cascade, Brewers Gold, and Early Green. Crystal is the only hop used in brewing Brutal and it provides a massive amount of aroma without dry-hopping. The English malts used are floor malted Pipkin (a mellow cross of Maris Otter and Warboys, from an English company called Beeston), Cara Vienna and Cara Wheat.

Belle couleur dorée orangés avec un col mousseux respectable. Au nez caramel,notes floral,agrumes. En bouche c’est trčs doux, en finesse caramel,floral,herbeux, des agrumes et des fruits tropicaux viennent caresser la langue comme du jus. Ca manque de corps et de résine pour une IPA. Respectable tout de meme!

Wow I really like this IPA. Nice hoppy taste to the palate but not overwhelming. And a creamy finish to the malt. Well done rogue.

Aroma: flowers, resin, honey, tropical fruits. Appearance: hazy, dark gold, medium, frothy white head. Taste: light bitter and sweet. Palate: sweets intensify quickly, ripe fruit, resin, heavy body, soft carbonation, dry, long finish. Overall: nice IPA, great palate, slightly weak on aroma. Pint at Hops and Glory, Islington.

650 ml bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours clear gold, thick, pillowy white head. Aromas of orange, candied peel, caramel. Taste is light bitter, good balancing sweetness, quite refined for something calling itself brutal. Oily texture, bitter, but crisp finish. Really good.

Bottle from mane liquor. Pours bright orange with firm white head. Nose is citrus, mainly lemon. And actually some booze. Taste shows lemon tang, light bitterness. Not too much going on but tasty enough. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from mane liquor. Pours a golden orange with a nice white head. Aromas of blood orange, floral hops, citrus fruit. Taste is super clean and sessionable. Combing a good balance of malts and hops with dry finish. Great beer
