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.

Caytinator (809) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 15, 2014
12oz bottle. Nice copper-color beer, good pour, nice frothy head and soapy lacing. Aroma is very good, appetizing but not too harsh. Yes, the flavor is a great combination of pepper, a thin malt backbone, and up-front hop flavor mixed with the rye. Palate is good, aftertaste is pretty long. I keep looking for reasons to not like this beer for some reason, the style isn’t my favorite, but hey, it’s decent if you like rye.

Brewdork (205) - Sanford, Florida, USA - APR 12, 2014
12 oz. bottle packaged on 2/14/2014 poured into shaker. Perfectly clear copper color with a considerable cap of white foam with above average retention and slight lacing. Aroma is peppery rye, grassy hops and some caramel sweetness. Taste is superbly peppery with a nice hop bite and a long but balanced finish.

catface5326 (140) - virginia beach, Virginia, USA - APR 9, 2014
Dark copper color poured from a tap. Scent of rye bread. Tastes kind of flat and like rye.

badhack (277) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 6, 2014
Malt and bread with rye. Balanced and not extremely like Hop Rod. Although both are delicious Ruthless is far more drinkable. Otherwise it is a typical west coast IPA, with citrus hops, some bitterness and not too sweet or caramel. A little spicy.

Garrold (733) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2014
Bottle from StarmoreBoss, Sheffield. Good looking, clear, copper colour. Clotted cream coloured head. Spicy jamminess. Some banana fustiness, that stays on the right side. Taste is dry and lightly spicy, as you’d expect, with a fairly punchy, pithy bitterness. Underlying sweetness. Lightly chewy palate. Long, bitter finish.
