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.

pottygok (548) - Ohio, USA - MAY 30, 2013
Aroma: Clear rye aroma with floral hops to back it up Appearance: Clear amber with nice white head Taste: Light bitterness with hints of sweetness trying desperately to balance Palate: Full body, average carbonation, dry texture, long bitter finish Overall: It’s a very solid offering, but not mind blowing. I’d stock it in my fridge, but wouldn’t hunt it down.

Otterdance (164) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2013
Bottle. Grapfruit, pine and nice skunky whiff that I expect from a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. Citrus hops is the dominant force as expected, but this is smoothed out by nice earthy and peppery tones. A little bit of biscuit in there for good measure. Medium body. Easy to drink.

from a bottle, aroma is citrus and spicy, taste is on the bitter side but has nice balance overall, nice beer.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass A - Mostly clear amber with a moundy off-white head that clings to the sides of the glass. Copious amounts of lacing. S - Heavy pine with some soapy grapefruit aroma. Rye is very present T - Wow! Rye is pronounced right out of the gate. Green pine, herbal hops mix well with the bold rye. A grainy pale malt gives good backing to the spiciness. The hops provide nice bitterness and finishes dry and spicy. M - Medium body, great carbonation, dry and bitter. If you like rye, this beer is for you as the brewer was not shy with it. It was very pronounced but really seemed to compliment the excellent IPA based beer rather than overpower it. Well done.

gorditoabd (629) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 27, 2013
Bottle. Pours dark amber with fluffy foam head. Sweet, spicy rye malt aromas predominate right from the first pour. Taste is extra tangy, mixing sweet heavy malt sweetness, with resinous hops presence and rye spice. Solid body and mouthfeel. Sometimes comes across a little heavy handed, but overall a very fine beer. Different, and always nice in a market overflooded with IPAs.

Bottle nose, rye & some sweetness. Some rough-ish quality. Big easy dense off white head. Rich balanced orange brown colour. Good dry robust taste

jd543 (427) - SCOTLAND - MAY 23, 2013
Clear orange-amber-red colour with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is hoppy, citrus, lemon, light spicyness and a light caramel malt. Flavour is light sweet, with a moderate bitter undertone and a long bitter finish. Texture is creamy/thick/oily. Very drinkable beer.

Niall73 (2362) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 20, 2013
2013 bottle, at home. Looks good - chestnut orange and clear with a good white head on it. On first pour there was a little skunkiness but it didn’t last long. It’s sweet smelling and earthy with a fruity, overripe edge to it with malt and hops. Full and quite foamy on the palate, juicy too. A really smooth taste initially - malt, fruit juice and citrus bitterness which isn’t overwhelming at all.

Light brown to dark orange, lacing on the glass. Nice rye hoppy taste with a rye finish. Wonderful beer.
