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.

Bottle. This is the first time I have seen it at TJ’s, so I assume it’s relatively fresh. Beautiful copper color with a big, billowy head. Brilliant to look at. Citrusy smells come alive when it warms. I can detect the rye in the aroma, but it’s not a spicy aroma, but more dank. Nice malty backbone to balance out the bitterness. The hoppiness is straightforward, but smooth and all-around pleasing. Not enough rye flavor for my taste, but still a very good IPA.

rejtable (1730) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2012
Really nice beer! Pours dark copper with very light head. Pretty lacing. Nose is light pine. Up front hits of pine that then turns citrusy, maybe almost pineapple. Finish is a bit sweeter with some light pepper notes. Light in mout with medium carbonation.

theoncle (58) - Barcelona, SPAIN - APR 18, 2012
L’aroma recorda el suc de taronja i el llúpol dona tocs de pomelo i pebre. El sabor es con una pinzellada de pebre fent-se present el sègol. De cos mitjà amb una major carbonatació en el paladar. Good beer!

bmeup (572) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - APR 16, 2012
Oh, this is very nice! Think hoppy, spicey, peppery, citrus and sweet biscuity malts. Bitter sweet and spicey taste and sensational palate. Great beer!

Mortlach (1287) - Rome, ITALY - APR 15, 2012
15/04/2012 330ml bottle (thanks dreadnord!). Ambrata, intensa, limpida, bel cappello di schiuma bianco sporca a grana grossolana, molto persistente. Al naso netti sentori agrumati, pungente, note di malto e grano. In bocca ha una struttura di malto importante che sorregge bene l’amaro deciso del luppolo. La segale la rende pastosa, conferendole un corpo importante. IPA molto buona.

BenH (3020) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 15, 2012
Bottle. Pours a nice clear amber with thin white head. Rye comes through on the aroma with some resinous hops. Taste is piny with some light tropical fruits. A nice bitter finish. Nice

downender (6954) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2012
Bottle from Corks of Bristol. Copper coloured with a slight white head. Aromas of oranges, sweet malts and spicy grains. Flavour had more marmalade fruit, a lot of spice and a dry finish. Very good.

NikkTwist (2003) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2012
Draft. Brownish orange pour with a tight head a light version of the same color. Bright hoppy bite is balanced nicely by the dark grain flavors from the rye. Citrus pith and zest. The rye both sweetens and drys. Good balance, though brings some weight that fills one up.

Ughsmash (7364) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 14, 2012
Bottled. Poured clear medium orange with a tight-bubbled, sticky off-white head. The aroma picked up juicy orange and grapefruit hoppage accented by peppery and light floral notes.. loved it! The flavor found more of the peppery rye, and it worked well with citrus bitterness on the edges.. pale and biscuity malts at the core.. mighty tasty. Medium-bodied with higher carbonation on the palate.. spicy and engaging.. this went down very easily.
