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.

12oz bottle pours clear amber with copper hues and thin light tan head. The modest aroma offers up musty earthy hops mixing with spicy hops, sweet malts and a touch of rye and slightly roasty malts. The taste has a pleasing spicy hop to spicy rye where the spiciness is more like cedar or oak spice without the wood sensation rather than kitchen spices. It is both moderately rich and flavor and yet sessionable in its lightness. Midway and into the finish it gets earthy with a mix of hops and lightly roasted maltiness. Darn good drinking and the price is awesome at $12 per 12 pack.

Keg at the Sheffield Tap. Red, thin head. Smells faintly hoppy. Sweet, clean to drink. Hops are fizzy and slightly tangy. Refreshing and tangy orange.

Toasted caramel amber body, with lively carbonation and an etiolated, wispy, hoppy head. The smells are of warm toasty malt, and assert floral hop bitterness.Medium-bodied with a moderate amount of bitterness, some toasty notes, and a sharp rye influence.

JoeMcPhee (8534) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 31, 2012
Tap at RNH. Amber pour topped by a tight off-white head. The aroma is quite lovely. Lots of fresh bracing hops along with a bit of chinook like pinyness. Assertive bitterness with a little bit of pink grapefruit rounding out the back. Rye is just barely there but adds a little something. Nice and fresh with a lovely balance. Lingering bitterness on the finish. Nice stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Davros (1999) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 30, 2012
Pours copper with a large, lasting head. Nose shows tropical fruit, with overt passionfruit alongside peach and green apples. Faint spicy, bready notes underneath. Unfortunately the fruit fades pretty quickly to be replaced by pine and grassy hops. Very hoppy flavours, but nowhere near as much tropical fruit, more focussed on pine and grapefruit. Underneath is more spicy, bready notes, followed by an aggressive, sharp bitterness. Could use a bit more carbonation.
