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.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2014 Great distinct taste and will definitely be a repeat seasonal buy. Slightly bitter palate could last a bit longer

This is a sharply bitter brewski. Fans of bitter brews will love this one. Uh, that would be me. I am an expert on what I like. Seriously.

danielecamo (555) - ITALY - JAN 28, 2015
In bottiglia. Colore ramato carico, schiuma fine e pannosa. aroma di cereale, caramello, frutta secca, nocciola seguita da note erbecee e vegetali. Al palato corpo medio, rotondo, note rustiche e terrose, caramello, nocciola, ben bilanciato da una luppolatura generosa ma mai eccessiva che dona nota erbacee ed una buona secchezza.

Cerveja IPA clara bem encorpada e saborosa. Fica o amargor classico de uma cerveja IPA no final.

chinchill (2282) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 14, 2015
12 oz bottle served in a pint glass. 2012 vintage (from notes). Pours a dark amber with a creamy tan head and visible carbonation. Ample sticky lacing left on the glass. Excellent carbonation level; medium body; semi-dry to dry finish. There’s plenty of spicy rye and hops in the nose, with a bit of toasted grain in the background. The aroma is also moderately fruity weedy, as well as very slightly earthy. Any lingering doubts about balance are laid to rest upon tasting: The flavor has an excellent balance of peppery rye, hops and toasted malt. The hops are a bit more spicy and less citrusy in tasting than smelling. O: Almost everything about this beer seems beyond criticism. The only thing I found slightly objectionable was the high amount of grapefruit rind bitterness in relation to hoppy flavor in the aftertaste. It looks great and has exactly the mouthfeel, aroma and taste one should expect in a true rye IPA. A great choice for IPA lovers who want something a bit out of the main stream.

Block (1547) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JAN 9, 2015
A heavier aroma, roasted malts, caramel, maybe chocolate. A little bit of spice up front, not much. A floral and alcoholic finish.

Not too hoppy, but with a nice complex flavor. Smooth with a little bite, but nice finish.

Thin white head atop a cloudy brown Amber body. Nose of rye atop hops as is the flavour. Nice bitterness through the finish.
