COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ruthless IPA is brewed with this rustic grain for refined flavors Ė 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.

Fatehunter (1647) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAR 9, 2012
Poured into a pint glass. A deep copper color, but still almost transparent with a finger of head. Great lacing. Big malt smell, the rye is there. Taste starts balanced then malty malt, big rye element so itís not sweet. Thatís followed by a load of hops that breaks up the rye malt with their bitterness. Ends with the bitter on the back of the tongue. Crisp and clean texture. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Itís a heavy hitting rye ale. Must enjoy punishing malt bill and hop profile to like it.

BroSpud (1854) - , Massachusetts, USA - MAR 9, 2012
12oz bottle. Pours brown amber with a white head and decent lacing. Another solid offering from Sierra Nevada. A good IPA with a subtle rye flavor along with the citrus and pine.

Beerenberger (1567) - Fischer, Texas, USA - MAR 9, 2012
Clear coppery color with rapidly depleting tan head. Some lacing was apparent. The aroma was overwhelmingly citrus/pine. Initially one taste grapefruit and feels the carbonation. This gives way to a strong grainy (rye) aftertaste. The mouth feel is medium. Overall a very refreshing beer. Would be wonderful at the end of a hot day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

FaithHealer1 (358) - SCOTLAND - MAR 9, 2012
Keg at North Bar Leeds. My first rye. What a milestone. In a sense. Aroma is pungent hops, with malts caramel but also a bit of a wet dog note that spoils it. Taste is very nice - grassy hops up front balanced very nicely with biscuity malt and that sweet/spicy rye note. Tasty. Medium mouthfeel, good carbonation, long balanced sweet/bitter finish. Very nice indeed.

Chaucers Cellars - 9-Mar-12- soapy light sweet honey malt aroma. Head dissapates quickly, lowish head, clear brown red colour. Honey, big celery, resin flavour. Bitter pine hop light sweet malt finish and pine soap aftertaste.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2012 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Not mind blowing but good nonetheless. Probably prefer celerbration over this one. Very sessionable with earthy, spiced flavours and a finish of grapefruit and sweet pineapple. Nice beer. SN donít do much wrong

Gooney (389) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 8, 2012
12 oz bottle from New Seasons - Clear brown with a nice white head. Sweet smelling, but not too sweet on the flavor. Citrusy, grapefruit hops aroma. Mild bitterness on the back of the tongue. Excellent beer.
