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.

Had this beer from a glass, light brown with decent lacing. Nice grassy hops taste.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - FEB 5, 2012
12oz bottle. Rating #339. Nice dark amber/brown with a dirty white tan head that left a decent amount of lacing. Spicy, hoppy aroma, citrusy and zesty. Nice hoppy bite with a spicy background and all of that lingers on the tongue for a good while. Nice stuff. (2153)

markwise (5082) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 5, 2012
12oz bottle from Leukens oldsmar. Pours an orange amber with a cream-colored head. Nose is sweet caramel, prickly rye and some bitter citrus. Flavor is caramel and orange up front followed by some prickly rye and sweet citrus with hop bitterness that extends into the finish. Interesting beer overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pete4999 (1382) - Buffalo, New York, USA - FEB 4, 2012
Bottle, as pictured. Pours a reddish-orange with a white head that fades rather quickly. Smells citrusy - grapefruit, lemon. Taste is similar with a bit of spiciness in it, from the rye, I guess. Very good beer.

scrubfish (46) - Illinois, USA - FEB 4, 2012
Bottle. Reddish copper color, head that lasts and lacing that coats the glass all the way down. I think the malt "rough grain" side of this beer overpowers the IPA end a bit. The end is an IPA finish. Overall, this is a nice solid brew from Sierra Nevada, enjoy it without trying to wonder where it fits in the Rye-IPA category.

Gustav1996 (333) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - FEB 4, 2012
12oz Bottle. This is a very nice beer. Very hoppy, citrus, good amount of rye, malty, pepper in here too. Nose was hops, citrus and malts. Good finish. Balance was good too.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 15/20
Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2012
Bottle. Pours dark orange and red with a creamy 2-finger beige head. Nice retention, with doily-like lacing. Aromas of spicy citrus, grass, and some funky fruit, with peppery notes. The flavor is bitter, spicy hops, citrus, and rye, with peppery bitterness. Lingering citrus peel. Medium carbonation and medium to full body, with a dry finish. Very easy-drinking. Really nice stuff. [952]

shuajom (7) - Springfield, Illinois, USA - FEB 4, 2012 does not count
Very tasty. A bit of dryness and a definite unique malty finish. Rye makes a big statement. Head is medium. Aroma is nice but seems faint.

badwhale (408) - Bitterville, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2012
Bottle to dimpled glass mug. Pours a clear copper color with a puffy white head. Good mix of rye flavors & IPA. Nice and smooth.

Nephilium (1616) - Ohio, USA - FEB 4, 2012
This has a nice hoppy aroma, with hints of rye. Pours a clear reddish-amber, with a thin white head. Nice balance with the rye notes and the hops blending into each other, with a really long bitter finish. Light on the palate, and easy to drink, this will become a staple in my fridge while it’s around.
