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.

12 oz. bottle...pours a nice copper with a a thin, creamy white head...aroma has a lot of rye, but also notes of citrus...flavor is hoppy, bitter, and ends with that rye kick, got a small dose of pepper as well...very nice spin on the ipa...well done Sierra Nevada

UPDATED: AUG 16, 2012 Rich, full bodied flavor; hoppy without being over powering. More well-rounded and complex than many other IPA?s I?ve had in the past. Fantastic when used in cooking meats and potatoes.

BOTTLE: Fresh, spicy citrus hop aroma. Taste is well balanced. Orange is the most prevelant citrus. There is some sweetness that balances the peppery rye taste which isn’t too sharp. Body is light to medium with full carbonation that doesn’t bite. Very nice and easy to drink.

Bottled. Pours clear, amber with a short but fluffy head. Good retention and lace. Mostly sweet rye on the nose. Maybe some grass behind all that grain. The grass shows on the light sweet and bitter-green palate. Medium body, thin-creamy texture, and a long bitter finish. Not my favorite effort from Sierra Nevada, but still quality.

Finhead (1325) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - FEB 15, 2012
A clear, copper pour with an off-white head. The nose is spicy with a touch of bread. The medium body has a slightly oily texture with average carbonation. The taste is spicy and moderately bitter followed by a very dry finish.

12 oz. bottle - Pours a crystal clear copper color with a two finger thick off white head. Light carbonation. Nice lacing. Flavor is floral hops, lightly toasted malt, esters, and light rye. Aroma is herbal hops and light rye. Finish is pretty smooth. Medium body. A nice beer.

beergodd1 (400) - Conneaut, Ohio, USA - FEB 15, 2012
Clear copper pour with a big Tan head that lasts forever and leaves a lot of lacing all the way to the end. A solid dose of hops in the aroma, fruity and citrusy with a nice amount of carbonation. Bold fruity hop flavor as well with citrus hop bitterness, light caramel sweetness especially when warmed up a bit, and a bigger hit of the spicy rye on the finish. Tasty!

fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - FEB 15, 2012
Bottle pours dark copper with a medium light cream head. Aroma is awesome, dank hops, rye, pine, big toasted nut notes. Flavor is well balanced, big toast and sweet caramel malt, lots of big dank hops, very green and fresh tasting with grass and evergreen notes. This stuff rocks!

Coppery colour with a nice tan head...strong,sharp hop scent..peppery feel to it, moderately bitter, dry, a little soapy. Not a favourite.
