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.

Deep amber with fair head and decent lacing. Nose of aome piney hops and a touch of rye. Nice bready malt in there too. Taste is grapefruit, pine and rye bread.

Bottle: Light amber pour with a finger of creamy beige head. Sweet citrus aroma indicates lots of sticky wet citrus hops... some caramel, pine, resin. Tastes a lot like SNPA, but with the addition of rye. Some florals stand out and it gets a little dry. Not as hoppy as an IPA could or should be, but more hop profile than most rye beers I can recall. Good

rosenbergh (6709) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 24, 2012
Draught at the Bishop’s Arms, Malmö, Sweden.
Clear deep golden colour with small off-white head. Sweetish fruity bitter aroma with exotic fruits. Bitter fruity hops and malt in flavour. Rye rounds the flavour. Strong bitter aftertaste. Low carbonation.

evergreen0199 (2008) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2012
Keg at Euston Tap, London. A dark amber coloured pour with a decent off white head on top. Interesting hoppy, rye aroma. Overwhelming taste of rye, spice, hoppy, citrus fruit, caramel. It’s not a bad IPA but I’m unlikely to seek this one out again.

12 oz bottle. Pours brown with an amber hue. a blend of citrus and hops on the nose. Taste is a bit lacking compared to the aroma. The rye comes through on the finish. Not bad not great.

Bottle. Tons of grapefruit aroma. Pours a clear rusty brown with foamy head. Lots of grapefruit and grains. Some spice and roast malt. Great beer!

This one’s a beaut! Very much a typically IPA... hoppy, floral to the nose. Pretty darker gold hue with almost creamy bubbles. Then the rye becomes apparent with aggressive roasty, toasty notes with spicy clove/anise/smoky tones. Very good IPA style.

Bottle from Woodmans in the Falls. Pours orange brown with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet fruit, flowers, caramel. Taste is sweet caramel, rye, citrus. Finishes sweet with some rye. Solid and tasty.

Maris (983) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAR 22, 2012
From a 355ml bottle on 22/3/2012 (2012 edition). Pours a relatively clear light amber with a biggish head. Has a lovely citrusy, resiny, hoppy aroma. There’s some sweet orange and caramel malt at the start, but this is dominated by spicy, peppery bitterness, which lingers long. The rye gives this one a real peppery twist, but there is sufficient balance to make it both notable and very enjoyable.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 21, 2012
On tap at multiple locations over the last couple months, most recently Sushi Love, Durham. Nice, clean copper pour with a silky head and vibrant carbonation. Well made, understated IPA with a terrific balance of hops and rye in the nose and flavors both. Playful carbonation brings out some zesty citrus, which contrasts nicely with the moderate spice from the rye on the palate. Not especially complicated, perhaps, but distinctive and damn refreshing.
