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.

Poured into 16oz pint glass. Head was very bubbly, and went away after about a minute. Aroma is very nice, hoppy aroma, color looks like a light red color, taste the hoppiness, but not too intense, very nice drinkable beer for me. Good job Sierra.

The aroma is not very enjoyable, cereal grains, like being in a grain silo. Some caramel after a while. The appearance is a clear amber color, off-white head. The flavor is much nicer: rye, spicy, caramel, citrus hops. The finish is spicy, light pine hops. medium in body. Decent beer. Drinks better than it smells.

Unibonger (163) - Mount Shasta, California, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Pours a dark copper, light white brownish head with thin retention, lots of lacing on the side. Has a very faint aroma, but it seems like a nice blend of grainy, sweet malty and hoppy all in one. Its not overly bitter, but it strengthens towards the end. Its semi sweet and very grainy. Some veggie type flavor from the hops. Med-low carbonation, though it kind of lingers on the tongue. Medium body, pretty slick texture.

Orange red amber with a bubbled pillowed head. Aromas of spicy citrus hops with some candied caramel and grain. Flavors of very dry citrus hops enhanced by the rye bitterness. Dry and very bitter. Noticiblely a more unique stand out from your typical ipa.

zgaier (1364) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Pours an amber-copper with a beige head and aroma of hops, grapefruit, and citrus. Flavor is big on grapefruit, pine, citrus, hops, and herbs with a heavy bitter, dry finish. Another great brew from Sierra Nevada with a lot of flavor.

Pours an amber rusty color. Small head with nice citrusy aroma. Lightly carbonated, head dissipates quickly. Taste is flavorful, hoppy, with strong citrus flavor, grapefruits predominating. Nice bitter finish, not ruthless at all. Another great beer from a great brewery. Quaff score ( drinkability with hearty enjoyment ) 7 / 10 Plain and simple nice IPA

AirForceHops (3115) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 11, 2012
12 oz bottle. Pored copper color in a tulip glass. Huge, soapy, full head with great retention and lace. Nose is mostly grapefruit and some rye earth tones. The flavor starts with spicy rye with a good malt backbone, leading to a citrus / grapefruit toward the back of the sip. Finish is somewhat dry and peppery, some grapefruit rind. A tasty beer and a solid everyday drinker. At $8.79 for a six pack it has a nice value for the quality.

badgerben (4395) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Murky copper color with a quickly falling medium head. Spicy rye and black pepper aroma. Fairly dank and a bit vegetal. Earthy and dank flavor. More vegetal. Grainy. Light black pepper. Dry finish. Hints of citrus towards the end of the glass.

Steeeve (327) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Clear medium gold pour with a pillowy two finger white head. Floral hop aroma with cereal grain note and a citrusy follow up. Slightly fruity flavor, full of floral hops and grainy malts. Very dry citrusy finish. Palate is pretty perfect. Pretty decent overall but too dry and floral for my taste. Hard to drink more than one.

12 oz. bottle. Poured hazy copper with mild lacing. Harsh pine flavor with subtle rye present. Finishes bitter, slightly tongue stripping. Surprisingly a bit thin.
