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.

Kinz (3279) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 22, 2012
Medium amber with a nice tan head. Aroma lightly of caramel accent malts and citrus hops. Flavor is a match - maltier than I expected, though balanced, with a hint of creaminess likely from the rye, and a slightly muted though enjoyable citric, pine, and earth hop finish. Nice. Had this in a beer/food pairing, would like to try solo at some point as well.

bigrond (1475) - factoryville, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 22, 2012
Another winner from Serria. Poured a deep copper with a thin off white head. The hops bite hit me first and failed to find any balance. This seemed like it had a higher IBU’s the it states. The hops flavor dissapated pretty quick, which means I needed another sip pretty quick. These babies go down smooth and fast. Great beer when your having more than one.

Aquilo (540) - Berkeley, California, USA - JAN 21, 2012
Clear, dark copper color with a frothy head. Aroma is pungent and medicinal. Pine, bergamot, and something extremely funky. Flavor is pleasantly bitter. Finish is abrasive and astringent. This beer has some good points, but overall it is too strange for me.

HonkeyBra (3344) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JAN 21, 2012
12 oz. bottle. Rich, deep amber red pour with an offwhite medium head. Aroma of spicy rye, strong bitter hops, lots of pine and resin, mild citrus. Mild floral notes. Flavor is fairly bitter with a nice complimentary spicy rye. The rye component along with the generous hopping makes this beer seem a lot more bitter than it is. But I like it. Medium bodied. Nice carbonation. Finishes bitter and spicy. Great beer.

Lowe1983 (1346) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JAN 21, 2012
Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is pretty balanced with citrus hops, rye, and some caramel malts. Plenty of citrus and pine hops. Has some caramel malts along with it. Overall not too bad.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JAN 21, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2012 Draft @ abraxas. Amber and bright. Stable head. Intense aroma that is bark, tree truck, soil, and minced walnuts. Juicy palate! Fruity rye berry kernel sweetness. Smoke, toasted cedar wood, and campfire notes. Meaty. One of the better rye beers I’ve had in a while. Solid and so nice! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle from sherm1016...thanks. Pours reddish with tan head. Malty nose with some hops....has a very nice blend of hops with malt to smooth out the edge of the hops without losing the ’bite’ of the hops....nice and smooth....very tasty

thegreenrooster (3194) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 21, 2012
Pour is a cloudy brown with a large white head. Aroma is a spicy hop with a deffinate rye malt. Flavor is more big rye with a minor hop. Finish leaves a nice rye bready malt on the tounge. SN really went for the rye aspect on this one and they really hit it, just wish there were more hops. Also great artwork on the label.

Bottle. Pour is darker gold, with a big off-white head, good retention/lace. Aroma of pine, rye bread, floral hops, caramel. Taste is moderately bitter, rye spiciness, earth, citrus. Palate is dry, oily, average carbonation, bitter finish.

greenhorn1 (807) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - JAN 21, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear, color of copper, big head, nice lacing. Citrus nose. Flavor of rye, light spices, and citrus. Mild bitterness and high carbonation. Easy to drink, not a bad Ipa.
