COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ruthless IPA is brewed with this rustic grain for refined flavors – combining the peppery spice of rye and the bright citrusy flavors of whole-cone hops to create a complex ale for the tumultuous transition to Spring.

Bottle. Pours dark copper with large off-white head. Aroma is pine, citrus, funk. Rye is much more obvious in the flavor to compliment piney hoppiness. Not a bad beer.

Bottle in pint glass. Nice overall IPA notes, typical SNB beer. The rye has a nice earthy tone, slight pepper corn. I enjoyed this beer.

jnkor (316) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 23, 2012
Interesting beer. Aroma is akin to a common IPA, but more earthy. Appearence s a nice copper, but more amber. Taste is the highlight, a mild bitter sweet IPA with n earthy taste. Palate is frothy, and slightly bitter finish, leaving a sour taste. Very nice twist.

ReggieDunlap (3080) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2012
Pours a clear amber/copper color with a huge tan head...great lacing and retention. Aroma has mild citrus, some earthy/spicy notes, and slight doughy maltiness. Flavor is spicy and piney with mild grapefruit and nice earthy rye notes...slightly bready. Mouthfeel is medium and lively with a very bitter dry finish that lingers nicely.
