COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ruthless IPA is brewed with this rustic grain for refined flavors Ė 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.

12oz beer. Pours a clear copper with a big frothy off white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is rye grains with some piney hops.

The flavor is some sweet bready malt with a big piney hop bitterness and rye spices. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with slightly sharp carbonation.

Overall, I like it. Itís a solid IPA and I like what the rye adds.

Draft at Busterís. Nice amber body with off-white head. Aroma and taste of piney hops, caramel malts, rye/pepper, and light citrus. Nice and well-balanced. Dry, bitter hop finish. Very drinkable.

12 oz bottle from Traderís Joe. Pours amber with an off-white, long lasting, foamy head. Aroma is of citrusy hops, bready malt and spices. The body is medium, very tangy. Citrusy, spicy hops, bready and caramel malt, some orange fruit fill the mouth. Delicious IPA.

bottle poured an amber in color with a thin layer of ten head. aroma has citrus, pine, caramel malt, and mild rye spice. mouth feel is light and there is high carbonation. flavor brings out much more rye, medium bitterness, some pine, and light heat. more aggressive than I had figured it to be

crescendo (1) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 20, 2012 does not count
Pours a nice coppery amber, very clear, no visible carbonation. A light beige, almost whipped head leaves thick lacing on the glass. The aroma is mild, but hoppy and sweet, almost like candy sugar. The flavor starts sweet and hoppy, then fills the mouth with smoky, oaky, and leathery flavors and finishes brightly with fruit, and an almost metallic after taste. The mouthfeel is creamy, with the small-bubble kind of carbonation that sticks to every crevice of the inside of your mouth. Itís surprisingly enjoyable and drinks faster than most beers with this much flavor.

Grapefruit and pine in the nose. A nice hoppy mouth feel along with earthiness. For a Rye, itís an excellent offering from Sierra Nevada.

Sierra Nevada loves darker hops. Thatís the only way I can describe it. They donít do citrus, they do pine, smoke, and earth. And itís great. This beer sticks to that strategy. Dark, smokey, piney hops... dry, bitter rye, and a clean, yet still bitter and hoppy finish. Itís very flavorful, and very drinkable. I might like it more than Torpedo.
