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.

BeerCast_Rich (1894) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 19, 2012
[355ml bottle, Beer Ritz, Leeds] Pours dark amber brown, decent white head but fades to a thin lacing. Sweet fruit on the nose from the hops - the rye comes out on the flavour. Fruity hop first, then spicy pepper finish, bitter, bready, and very earthy. Lots of spicy rye on the finish [19032012]

radioseer (299) - Virginia, USA - MAR 18, 2012
(12 ounce bottle - tumbler) Pours a two finger size head. Hoppy rye aroma. Caramel, rye, nutty malt flavor balanced with a spruce herbal hoppy taste. Full body and lively carbonation.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 18, 2012
A muddy brown color with a thin beige head. Aroma is earthy, spicy hops and malt, some dryness. Taste is again earthy, spicy, peppery, a good rye.

glorydaze (34) - Savannah, Georgia, USA - MAR 18, 2012
Sweet grapefruit aroma. Creamy start leads to a full rye background and crisp lingering finish. Excellent with the blackened tuna it accompanied for dinner. Will get this one again.

kaser (3121) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 18, 2012
Bottle. Poured copper-amber with a ton of off white head. Aromas of citrus and pine. Taste is big - spicy hops, nutty/fruity both, somehow. Creamy palette. Good beer overall ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

LetsGoState (616) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 18, 2012
Appearance is small white head with deep amber. Aroma is some sweet hops. Taste is a citrusy hop. Overall pretty good.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 18, 2012
On tap. Clear dark amber with a dense off-white head. Dry nutty aroma. Medium body, some initial caramel notes quickly suppressed by a distinct and somewhat rough bitterness. Absolutely clean and well made but the hop profile is a bit unrefined to my liking. 100312

jonno (2345) - JAPAN - MAR 18, 2012
Bottle. Moderately rye spice and citrus nose. Dark pour with the great SN head. Not too full on, spicy, toffee and a average bitter finish. Solid creamy mouthfeel. Very MOR. SN remind me of the Foo Fighters. Solid, dependable - everyone likes them. They rock hard and are tight as s#$%. But they are a tad boring and samey all the same.

jlruthven (562) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 17, 2012
Draft at the Mason. Pours dark, hazy amber with one-finger tan head. Very frothy, good retention. Big spicy hops on the nose, mild pine and orange. Grapefruit, massive spicy rye on the tongue, mouth-puckering hop kick. Pretty great.

jsmerig (1291) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 17, 2012
Aroma of spicy grain. Pours a copper brown with minimal head. Taste is malt forward with an immediate spicy hop turn. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
