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.

12 oz. bottle, pours a mostly clear orangey amber with a small beige head. Aroma of strong rye malts, pine, loads of pot and herbal hops. Flavour is heavy on the rye, pot, herbal, hops and more rye malt. Very rye and pot dominated. Good for what it is, though not really my favourite flavours.

On tap. This one is decent. Beautiful aroma but the flavor is missing something.

12oz bottle - Huge bubbly head. Falls in less than a minute. Body is absolutely crystal clear and the most gorgeous sunset orange I have ever seen. Fresh hop aroma reminds me of pine needles and that sticky sap you got on your hands as a kid. Flavor is a balance between the twang of the rye malt and the hops. Description is alluding me other than to say I like it. Bitterness lingers on the palate. If you can get this try it. A great IPA!!

BMan1113VR (7874) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 2, 2012
Bottle. Pours with a clear copper hued body and a large, lasting, just off-white head. Pretty decent retention with good lacing. Aromas are of spicy and citrusy. Lightly bready malt sweetness as well in the forefront. Floral and flowery with light esters. Medium grassy. Flavors are bready, grainy, lightly spicy from the malt. Notable rye rustic character. Crisp finish. Hops are there, but nothing crazy. Medium bitterness that seems like it might be accentuated by the rye. Hop flavors are grassy, herbal and citrus. Brief duration that ends bitter but not oppressively so. Fuller carbonation, dry, medium bodied. Crisp. Pretty decent six pack purchase.

GTAEgeek (1287) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 2, 2012
12 oz. bottle. Pours dark copper with a medium, beige head. The aroma is caramel, rye, and spruce hops. The flavor is very bitter and a little malty sweetness. The palate is medium, sticky, and astringent. Overall, this is a good rye beer, with plenty of flavor and a clean mouthfeel.

mallons72 (172) - livonia, Michigan, USA - FEB 2, 2012
The rye is there, the hops are there - citrus, pepper and rye to the nose. Nice everything - except the balance and finish. Good effort, but not quite what I’m looking for in a rye IPA.

MOboy (505) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - FEB 2, 2012
Tea brown with lacing, tan head. Fairly subdued but spicy aroma. Delightful mouthfeel, if somewhat thin. Rye spice up front and a restrained bitterness to finish. Drying and enjoyable.

There isn’t a whole lot to the aroma. Definitely getting a lot of spice in the taste, and the hops do kind of hit you. The taste kinda stays with you a little longer than I wanted it to. First year that I have tasted this beer. Not great, but better than your average.

beerfest5 (1163) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 2, 2012
OOOHHHH Spicy!!! this is a good west coast IPA with the added flavor explosion of the rye spice character that knocked my socks off. Definitely not a session type ale, this one was good for one or two at the most before my palate was not capable anymore.

wedgie9 (2101) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 1, 2012
Tasted on 2/1/12 from a 12oz bottle purchased at Grand Cru. Pours clear orange-amber with a thick off-white head that slowly recedes to average lace, leaving thick residue along the inside of the glass. The nose is straightforward citrus hops and spicy rye, with a hint of caramel and bread malt. The flavor is the same nicely melded combination of citrus hops, spicy rye, and a nice malt backbone. The body is medium with average, stinging carbonation, and a long lightly bitter citrus hops and spicy rye finish.
