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.

ok I know this rating seems strange. Here goes.... Has a nice clear dark straw color with a nice white head. lots of hops on the aroma and front of taste. follows through smooth, overall is a wonderful drinking beer. here is the problem........ I have had this beer a half dozen times now and every time it has caused a severe headache. the first few times I thought it was because of overindulgence, but the last few times even in moderation had the same results. so in the end its a wonderful tasting beer with awful sideeffects..

Clear copper hue, tan creamy lasting head, smells a little caramel, decent malt, not overpowering, medium body and carbonation. Rye is not overpowering but it’s there, on the lighter side for what I would expect. Some grapefruit citrus, not too bitter. I like it ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SamP01 (658) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 7, 2012
A deep clear amber with a nice lasting beige head with good lacing on the pour. Aroma of caramel malt, earthy piney hops, rye, grains fills the senses with some subtle fruity citrus notes as it warms up. Taste is sweet caramel malt with some earthy, citrus hops, some spicy rye and grain notes. Palate is a medium body with good carbonation. Finish is sweet caramel malt, yeast, rye, with some citrus notes ending with a lingering sweet bitter earthy rye hops taste. Not overly bitter a nice balance of bitter sweetness. Overall a very good and balanced any tasty brew.

This beer was really done! I especially loved the intrusive balance of hops and the explosion of rye. This was one of the best rye ipa’s I have had. Another awesome product from Sierra Nevada.

Bottle. Grapefruit hops, bready malt aroma. Clear amber with a medium off white head and some good lacing. Rye bread, resinous pine and grapefruit hops flavor, finishing a little peppery. Medium body.

MarkoR (930) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 6, 2012
I was really surprise by this beer. Wasn’t expecting it to be that good. It pours a medium orange gold colour with a reasonable foamy white head. Hops hops hops! Nicely balanced. A nice IPA.

KlextonGaze (60) - Franklinville, New Jersey, USA - MAR 6, 2012
Bottle pours a glimmering bronze with towering beige foam that gives way to scent akin to citrus pith soaked in kummel. Emergence of malts in taste create a nice roux without stifling the piney tang of the hops. Unique variant with this one.
