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.

Pours a medium copper color with a average head. Lots of tiny bubbles rise from the bottom of the glass continuing to build the head from beneath. Aroma of hay and malts. Aroma is a bit more muddled than the crisp, clear aroma of many IPAs. A bit more body and malt flavor to this one than I would have expected. Not super hoppy but it does have a bit of bitterness. Nice mouth feel. Kind of an odd beer in my mind, but yummy nonetheless.

Tan/amber appearance, nice but nothing remarkable. Faint aroma of rye, citrus and hops. Taste is balanced.. not a ton of rye, but it’s there.. citrus hops.

Bue en mars 2014. Bon goût houblonné et subtilement poivré venant du seigle. Amertume sèche et douce. Bien balancé.

Hopmaestro (1234) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 27, 2015
Backlog from lost & found notes: Nice aroma of caramels and resin, whole pine cones and a sweeter kind of peach. Taste is full bodied with malt, bitter orange, harsh rye and sharp bitterness. I love it.

Homer321 (4177) - Melboring, Florida, USA - JUN 23, 2015
Draft. A very pepper and spicy forward nose hits me up front. Followed by a toasty bready crusty malt. Crackery. Almost sweet caramel. Taste is more toasty and caramel with a hint of burnt bread. Decent but overall a tad lacking in hops for my taste.

Sigmund (6645) - Tau, NORWAY - JUN 13, 2015
355 ml bottle, vintage 2013, from Vinmonopolet, Nettbutikken. BB date 31.05.2014. Amber colour, moderate off-white head. Aroma of fruity and piney hops, rye bread and pepper. Hoppy and peppery flavour, grapefruity notes, but also sufficient malts, again with hints of rye bread. Good now, but probably even better when fresh.
