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.

Goudblond nevelig bier, minimale off-white schuimkraag. Aroma is hoppig, citrus, brood. Smaak begint lichtzoet, evolueert naar behoorlijk bitter. Voldoende film, co2, lichte tot medium body.

tillmac62 (182) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - AUG 25, 2014
BOD 141/14. Pours medium amber with a slight haze. Normal head, lacing and retention. Nice nose of caramel sweetness over citrus and pine notes with a touch of spice. Light medium body, with a texture that borders upon creamy. Normal carbonation level with light effervescence on the finish. Balanced flavor profile with a bit of complexity. It begins with pine and citrus hop flavor which flows into caramel. As the caramel sweetness fades, the rye asserts itself. The finish is somewhat sharp with the rye and hop bitterness lingering. A solid offering, but not in the league of GL’s Rye of the Tiger or Founder’s Red’s Rye.

33cl @ bottle. Very very good american ipa beer. Sierra Nevada brewing is a certainty of quality.

Lemke10 (771) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 19, 2014
This pours a semi-cloudy brown color with a slight off-white head. The aroma is slightly bitter with hops. The taste is big and bold with rye and hops flavors. It is smooth and flavorful with a grainy, hoppy finish leaving a bitter aftertaste.

12 fl oz bottle. Medium gold-copper colour with a tall, dense, off-white head which persisted well and left some nice lacing. Aroma of pine, floral perfume and citrus. A nice combination of: medium sweetness, complementary bitterness and a spicy bite to finish. Medium bodied with a creamy smooth texture. These jokers know how to make a beer. Thoroughly enjoyable.

varanid99 (491) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 3, 2014
Amber pour with a decent off white head. Grapefruit, bready, spicy, malty aroma. Taste is similar - decent bitterness, citrus, caramel and slightly spicy finish

picoloC (13) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 2, 2014
The aroma has complex hops notes and a refined spicy undertow that is reminiscent of rye malt whiskey. Almost clear golden amber with a thin lasting head. A light and inviting sweetness and heavy bitterness lead to a surprisingly balanced overall taste. Medium bodied with a thin creamy texture and light carbonation. Bitter woody notes on the finish.

MikeKeller (839) - Kemi, FINLAND - AUG 2, 2014
Bottle from Systembolaget. Dark amber beer with a small off-white head. Aroma has some caramel malts with rye, resin and hops. Flavour is quite malty, fruity and bitter. A tasty rye IPA!

355ml bottle from Drygate. Pours amber with decent head. Hoppy aroma, well matched by the slightly bitter taste with grapefruit hints. Decent
