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.

DSG (10073) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 21, 2012
Bottle. Slightly hazy amber color with a medium off-white head. Fresh hoppy aroma with citrus, some tropical fruits and rye. Bitter grapefruity and piney hops flavor, somewhat resinous, with some malt, light caramel sweetness in the background, a touch of rye and a nice lingering bitter finish. Rounded mouthfeel. Really nice.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2013 pours a deep amber, small head quickly reduces to a lacing, caramel and rye malts, with sharp citrus coming through, quite sweet malt character with some hop balance, finish is long and moderate bitter. Carbonation is lively, nice one!

Erasmus_ro (2193) - Alabama, USA - APR 21, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2013 Tap @ Yard House, Las Vegas 19/04/12. Pours clear copper with a large, eggshell head. Aroma is fruity, apple skin, grapefruit. Taste begins pith, apple skin, fruitiness. Turns pine in the middle and finally rye and dry caramel with the pith in the finish. Palate is quite full, rather too much so. Went excellently with a blackened swordfish taco, complementing the charcoal in the swordfish with the rye and caramel and the cilantro with the hops.

Interesting combination of citrus and peppery rye flavors in this IPA. Medium bodied amber with lacing throughout the sample. Where Black IPA zig this Rye IPA zags. Excellent Spring beer.

bytemesis (5584) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 20, 2012
Pours a dark amber with a strong head. Smell is piney, citrusy and a little sweet. Taste has notable hops, primarily piney, but not over the top. Spicy notes from the rye and significant malt sweetness fill out the flavors. Overall a good, interesting IPA. Nice beer to throw into the mix to change things up a bit.

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 (2011) - 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.

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 sčgol. De cos mitjŕ amb una major carbonatació en el paladar. Good beer!
