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.

Shaker pint draft at Martin City Brewing Company in Kansas City, Missouri. The pour is mostly clear copper burgundy with a smallish off white head. The aroma is fresh and clean - floral citrus hops and a soft rye. Decent amount of cereal malt present in there as well. The taste is the nose, nice balance between the citrus hope, the rye and the cereal grain malt. The malt has a lot more sweetness than the nose suggested. The rye gives it a nice spiciness, pepper, but not quite that sharp. The palate is light to medium bodied, active full carbonation and a dry, even slightly bitter finish. The finish thins out a bit as well. Nice enough, easy drinking beer.

DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - FEB 14, 2012
Bottle from Safeway in Davis, CA. Pours a nice copper color with a thick copper head. This was just another typical Sierra brew for me. If you like piney hops then this is the beer for you. Good, just not my style.

Attractive deep copper pour with a full, frothy cream colored head. Nice nose and flavor of caramel, tangy rye malt, some grain and bitter hops. Decent mouthfeel with a dry finish.

That1Guy (1892) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - FEB 14, 2012
Pint on tap pours a orange-red with a sticky head. Light citrus and rye spice on the nose. Flavor is lovely hop citrus and rye spice with a sweeter malt backbone.

scarletfire65 (939) - Rockaway Park, New York, USA - FEB 14, 2012
Clear copper, big fluffy off white head, great retention. Aroma is citrus hops, rye, mint, spice. Feels a bit thin on the palate. Sharp and bitter, with nice spicy and floral hops. Black pepper, orange, and rye bread. A solid, if not tame, rye IPA.
