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.

Wasn’t all impressed with this rye IPA. The aroma had a lot of sweetness without much citrus hop aroma. Taste had the spicy rye and good bitterness, but I thought there was too much harshness. Little overcarbed. Dry.

Bottle from Glug Newcastle. Pours rich brown colour with thin off white head. Subtle toffee, hoppy flavours. Surprisingly smooth for ABV. Nice.

Aroma: Floral, spicy, slight citrus. Appearance: Medium amber with nice tan head. Taste: Nicely balanced peppery spicyness with some caramel and citrus. Less overpowering than some others with the rye. Palate: Medium-light body with medium carbonation and an interesting finish that leaves a little pepper on the tongue.

Flaska från Systembolaget. Dimmig bärnstensfärgad vätska med lågt vitt skum. Doftar söta frukter, jordgubbar. Kåda och pepprig smak med en sötma som väger upp. Beskan hänger med länge.

Andy_ (644) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 12, 2014
Slightly hazy amber colored beer with big white head leaving lacing. Aroma has rye, pine, resin and peat. Flavor is piney and herbal bitter and creamy rye bready sweet. Palate is quite thick with quite soft carbonation and feel of bitterness. Finish is strong with heavy bitterness. Aftertaste is dry, grapefruity and rye bready, a bit soapy and acidic. I would like some fruityness – perhaps it’s left to the other side of the Atlantic.

Bottle. Very clear bronze appearance with a small head. Slightly spicy with some subtle hops. Different and enjoyable.

MartzMimic (79) - Oklahoma, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Pours a deep copper with a decent foamy off-white head that stays for a bit. Nice lacing. Aroma of pine resin, hay and grainy malt. The rye gives it an earthy taste with a bit of sweet spice. It also balances nicely with the hops. It’s bitter, but not overly so. It does give a nice tingle to the tongue. Medium mouth without a lot of carbonation. Definitely a solid beer as you would expect from SN.

Elwood (3027) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Very nice clear amber pour with a sizeable off white head. Great combination of spicy rye notes and citrus on the nose. The flavor follows suit with great balance. Slight bread notes emerge as it warms. Well done.

Cloudy copper color, white head. Citrus and floral nose, hints of resin and spice. Caramel and resin taste, citrus notes, peppery, moderate bitterness. Medium body and carbonation.
