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.

jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Pours a beautiful golden amber with a huge white head. Nose is citrus and hops. Very creamy on the palate, the taste is full of a fruity hops bouquet with a veiled malt backbone. Nice dry finish. This full bodied beer is best enjoyed with a deli sandwich, a dill pickle and chips.

BeerInHeaven (227) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - APR 21, 2015
pours a clear copper with a medium beige head. Aroma is floral and slight citrus. Taste is definitely hop forward, moderately hop bitter right from the start. There is some slight malt sweetness to balance. Long pleasantly bitter finish with good nasal linger. I like it.

High_in_NM (19) - Los Alamos NM, New Mexico, USA - APR 17, 2015
Bottle from seasonal IPA 12 mix pack at local Smith’s. Disappointed this one is only available in the mix pack now. That said, not as good as I remember it last year, but still not bad. Coppery amber pour, nice, frothy off white head with ample lacing. Peppery notes with lots of bitterness really come through for me just as advertised. Not really an IPA in the traditional sense, but quite good anyway. Not sure what else to compare it too.

YogiBeera (2534) - New Jersey, USA - APR 11, 2015
Nice gold Amber color with a medium frothy head on top. Fresh grain, medium intense caramel in the nose with hints of honey. First weak and very light hops notes building up to a more intense bitter lingering. Very refreshing, nice session IPA

Faint hop nose with some whole grain aromas. Lovely color: shimmering auburn. Caramel upfront then a nice tingly bitter. Overall well balanced.

G_C_R (8) - New Brunswick, CANADA - APR 3, 2015 does not count
Got this in a 4-way IPA Sierra Nevada 12-pack in Bangor. It is drinkable, but not spectacular. Christine found it had a kind of a "baloney" taste to it that she didn’t overly care for.

DiarmaidBHK (3675) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Bottle from Wegman’s Williamsport. pours light brown with a thin khaki head that fades quickly. leaves a lot of lacing in the glass. Solid rye notes on the nose with some decent floral hop notes. definitely get the rye on the tongue as well with some solid hop bitterness on the finish. It’s drinkable though not as spectacular as Terrapin’s offering.

MattShizzle (551) - Bernville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 26, 2015
Bottle - from sampler pack. Deep copper color, clear. clean aroma with some malt and hops. Pretty good. Very hoppy.

VeinAle (113) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 24, 2015
Deep aroma, layered bread, grass, roast caramel. Dark pour, minimal head. In the flavor, well pronounced bitters, rye, piney citrus. Medium full body. Well delivered experience!

Sarlacc83 (1171) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Bottle. A: Caramel color with a foamy off-white head that clings to the side of the glass. Lacing. N: Toffee in the nose, peppercorn right behind. Biscuit and rye bread loaves. Pine and earth. Some grapefruit citrusy and juuuust a touch of pineapple from the hops. More damp fall leaves. T: Moderately sweet - more bready, and a solid amount of balancing bitterness. M: Medium body, foamy, prickly carbonation, touch of alcohol burn (though that might be the hops). O: A very good rye IPA. The hops and the grain complement each other very well, and I will be happy to go back to the box I bought to have the reset of these. Good show.

Pretty nice rye pa. Reddish brown. Caramel, malty, roasty, with nice dose of rye spice and lasting bitterness.
