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.

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.

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.

madquacker (1074) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - MAY 19, 2013
Brown colour with a small head. Deep and grainy. High ABV is very well disguised. Oily and some citrus across the malts. Nice.

WesKBob (563) - Bethany, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Pours a light copper color. Moderate off-white head with good retention and moderate lacing. Medium rye and herbal hops in the aroma. Flavor is mild caramel malt, grassy and piney hops and a moderate dose of rye. The spiciness of the rye and bitterness of the hops predominate--I would have liked a bit more malt for some sweetness and balance. This is a beer that couldn’t really decide what it wants to be--it needs more hops and rye to be a really aggressive rye IPA. Or it needs more caramel sweetness to be a more "mainstream" beer. Instead, they split the difference and the result, while good, is not as good as it could have been.

jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Pours a beautiful golden amber with a huge white head. Nose is citrus and hops. Very creamy on the palate, the taste is full of a fruity hops bouquet with a veiled malt backbone. Nice dry finish. This full bodied beer is best enjoyed with a deli sandwich, a dill pickle and chips.

Another winner from Chico! Brisk aromas abound, complex hops, rye and light caramel malts. Tart, peppery, bitter,sweet and earthy, they’re all in there. The rye is glorious in the finish especially, but hops are resinous and leathery throughout. Grapefruit and pine it does go on..yeah I liked it! How this delight would pair with a variety of foods adds to it’s overall score! Buy a 12 at the nice price enjoy now and make sure you fridge a few for that perfectly tasty cookout this summer.
