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.

BelgianBeerGal (3102) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JAN 31, 2012
12oz Central Market bottle. Wow, this was cool. The aroma and flavors had some sweeter, citrus hops balanced by some spicy, skunky (in a good way), earthiness. Long, slightly bitter finish. well done.

phaleslu (6204) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 31, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2012 12 oz. bottle from The Royale. Pours a clear, bright amber color with a finger of soft, frothy, uneven off-white head. Aroma of rye, pepper, grassy hops, crackers, caramel malts, citrus, and cereal. Flavor of bitter, grassy, resinous hops, rye, pepper, caramel malts, citrus peel, and dry toast. Light-medium bodied, with a dry, spicy mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Tons of rye. Great beer.

LilBeerDoctor (3414) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear orange brown with a thick, creamy off-white head. Aroma of floral hops, spicy rye, rich caramel malt. Flavor of bready malt with grassy, garlicky hops and rye in the finish. Lots of bitterness and lots of rye. The rye really dominates the beer. Tasty stuff, though would have liked a little citrusy notes in this IPA. 7/4/8/4/14 (3.7/5)

Really good rye beer, dark brown tinge to an otherwise lager looking beer, citrusy hop aroma. Nice sharp spice from the rye. Really really like this. Complex, yet simple. Would definitely buy again

12oz. Bottle: Aroma of malt, hops, rye, light citrus, slight pepper, slight rye, and a hint of caramel. Poured copper/amber in color with a small, creamy, dense, off-white head that lasted throughout. Clear. Sparkling. Very good lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet and medium bitter. Tastes of malt, rye, hops, pine, slight pepper, slight caramel, and more rye. Medium body. Lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Malt, light caramel, rye, hop, pine finish.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 31, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear dark amber orange, off white head. Aroma is kiwi-tangerine fruity with sweet malt. Flavor is the same with sour dough maltiness and a bit of hops bitterness.

hopscotch (8785) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 31, 2012
Draft… Pours clear and new penny-copper with a small, creamy, white head. Excellent retention. Lots of caramel, some damp leather and only a hint of rye pepperiness in the nose. Full-bodied and chewy with tickling carbonation. The flavor leans a touch bitter and has both a nice rye kick and a nice hop bite, but is pretty well-balanced overall. Some caramel without the normally accompanying residual sweetness. Finishes crisp with light spiciness and mild bitterness.

TOSG55 (219) - Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 30, 2012
Bottle. Pours a red amber with a thin white head. Aroma of grassy, citrusy hops. Powerful hoppy flavor, balanced with spiciness from the rye, and a nice malt backbone. Rich mouthfeel. Complex but drinkable - a real winner.
