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.

Dogbrick (7634) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 23, 2012
Sample at the impromptu Kuhnhenn tasting on 01/17/2012: This brew is a brownish-orange color with a medium off-white head that evaporates slowly. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of grainy malt and floral hops. Medium body with a spicy hops character that has herbal and floral notes. Some citrus and sweet malt in the background. The finish is moderately bitter with a resiny hops aftertaste. Above average overall.

What SN does best is IPA, and this is another solid offering for spring. Basically taking Torpedo and adding rye for a nice complex flavor component that does not come through too strong and dominate the IPA, but mixes in for a great twist on SN IPA. Well done....best value for 12.99 a 12 pack.

355ml bottle from Whole Foods, San Francisco, CA

Pours dark orange with a smooth foamy head. Aroma has notes of caramel malts, hops and rye. Taste is quite bitter and malty with notes of bread, fruity hops, pine and hints of rye and spices. Finish is malty and sticky. Nice malty IPA with rye.

12oz - The spicy goodness that is rye shows through. Great strength of body, fresh flavor. A pronounced bitterness disappointed at the back end. Overall quite pleasing, and I’m glad to see a rye.

Sammy (8398) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 23, 2012
Fresh bottle from the Pizza Port bottle store. Hoppy aroma. Copper body with three-eighths of an inch of retained white head. An ale with rye that hits the spot. Lacy, fresh, session-able, citrus, pepper, fruit and lots of rye. A good hoppiness and edgy. Good drinkability.

Smells of toasty, bready goodness, and the flavor doesn’t disappoint. No surprise that the folks at Sierra Nevada deliver a quality beer.

marcus (6343) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 22, 2012
Bottle from BevMo, Arden Sacramento. Pours reddish brown with an attractive beige head and a fruity aroma. There is a thick rye flavor with a lemony bitterness that finishes dry and stays on the palate. This a very different beer, interestingly innovative.
