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.

Solid beer. Good hop profile. Somewhat dry. Farily typical Rye IPA. Nice finish.

A nice mix of a doughy, bready beer and an IPA. The rye really stands out in this beer and the mix of hops balances it nicely. A bright amber pour with a small white head. Nice lacing on my glass that sticks throughout. Aroma of malts, rye, and hops. Flavor is citrusy hops and rye bread. A really nice brew.

Powerfully hoppy aroma and taste with a strong grain flavour. Very complex bitter beer

aroma is hoppy,maybe mildly spicyand a little fruitiness in the back..clear liquid looks like iced tea and an impressive foamy white head with lacing..the taste is where the spiciness comes through..peppery,minty even,yeasty flavors and plenty of piney hoppiness citrus flavors there too nicely bitter..palate and drinkability..it went down real fast overall Im liking this a very flavorful beer with a moderate abv so quite sessionable

12 oz bottle pours an golden orange color with a medium white head. Aromas of citrus, pine, resin and some spice in the background. Medium bodied with a sweet malt and bitter finish.

jdjuice (403) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - APR 10, 2012
Smells yeasty and kind of like dry sharp cheddar. Pretty hoppy, with a good deal of rye bite hiding undeneath. Im not a fan of rye bread, but I do say rye and hopsare a match made in heaven wot wot.

Brown, big frothy head. Smells like coffee, rye toast, and piney hops. Flavor is earthy and messy at first, then lots of piney hops, and a dry, crisp finish. Very tasty

Bottle. Pours a medium copper with a nice head and medium lacing. Aroma is of juniper and grass. Flavor is slightly sweet and spicy with a good dose of bitterness in the finish. Damn it, why does everything SN makes have to be excellent. I am waiting for them to branch out, but they never do.

A: Pours a tawny copper color with about middling clarity. I intentionally wanted lots of head (har har, I’m so funny!) here, so my aggressive pour yielded a 4 finger, off white colored beauty. Decent retention and fantastic lacing. S: I’m a little mixed on the smell. There’s lots of grapefruit - good - and a strange note of soapiness - not so good. There’s also a subtle whiff of rye. T: Rather mild, with little rye character appearing, unfortunately. Having said that, the IPA base offered here is still rock solid, but like I said, a little mild. There’s an opening hit of bitter grapefruit with the malt undercurrent slowly appearing, with a finish of piny hops - a textbook IPA. I can pick up rye notes near the finish if I concentrate, but the character is otherwise disappointing. M: Medium bodied, a little sticky on the back end, and average carbonation. O: Truth be told, it’s only decent. I wish this was a little more Rye and a little less IPA. Having said that, if you go into this expecting a straight-up IPA, you’ll probably enjoy it more. Drink this fresh.
