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.

Really nice IPA. Super excited about the rye flavor. Served ice cold and this brew had a great head on it and a sweet aroma. Great on the palate.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - FEB 21, 2012
[Bottle] Lightly hazed amber hue, decent head formation. Slightly soapy, lemony hop aroma, mildly spiced, mild caramel malt. Well spiced palate, hoppy bitterness throughout but never aggressive, body is mild with some light biscuity malts and a touch of sugarry sweetness. Easy drinker but a particularly stand out rye IPA.

Beaver (1302) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 21, 2012
12oz beer. Pours a clear copper with a big frothy off white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is rye grains with some piney hops.

The flavor is some sweet bready malt with a big piney hop bitterness and rye spices. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with slightly sharp carbonation.

Overall, I like it. It’s a solid IPA and I like what the rye adds.

12 oz bottle from Trader’s Joe. Pours amber with an off-white, long lasting, foamy head. Aroma is of citrusy hops, bready malt and spices. The body is medium, very tangy. Citrusy, spicy hops, bready and caramel malt, some orange fruit fill the mouth. Delicious IPA.
