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.

Pours a really beautiful dark lager/carmel color, really beautiful color with a slightly offwhite head that dissapates very quickly. Hoppy aromas, with an almost hint of apricot aromas. Hoppy attack which fades to a very malty (you can actually taste the rye in this) and mellows. A very nice IPA.

Capa (1963) - Manama, BAHRAIN - JAN 20, 2012
Clear amber with a large white head. Aroma was citrus hops, light malts, and nice spicy rye. Medium body. Starts out with nice citrus hops and sweet malts and then passes on to a medium spicy bite from the rye. The hop bitterness melts seamlessly into the rye spice and it can be hard to figure out where one ends and the other begins. A very well done rye IPA.

Draft. Clear reddish amber, off white head. Citrus, spicy rye, light sweetness (caramel), and rough bread. Moderate bitterness. I like it.

GJF (1217) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - JAN 19, 2012
Hazy amber. Very white head. It’s a thick, chewy beer. Lots of malt with a caramel sweetness balanced with straw and citrus. Dry bitter finish and just a hint of rye sour. Good beer.

Poured from 12 oz, this is about the 5th one I have tried, as I was waiting patiently for it. I must say this gets better every time I have had it. Shiny dark copper in color with a dirty off white medium head.Malty nose with a hint of citrus, a bit of rye, taste was balanced, medium bodied, kind of a bitter finish. Not sure exactly, it is not an IPA as the label says

jmohno (1045) - Iowa, USA - JAN 19, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2012 Orange with brown and red hues.Short head with ring with spotty lacing solid carbonation subdued and well contained. Aroma is very fresh, this just arrived here,its pretty dank,resiony danky herbal pepperish, sweet yeast grain bread with pine/ very light fruit/floral notes,very hoppy in a fresh grassy way. Flavor at first seems dry and sharp but has slickness medium sweetness almost a tart crisp malt but malty also, great mouthfeel very balanced taste but very hoppy with a perfect bittering that lingers of hop flavor more than the bittering, definalty unique in that it possesses a hop flavor lingering than a bittering,whic is still perfectly bittered in this .Pretty much perfectly balanced.Not heavily ryeish but more great ipa with rye but as it ages im shure the rye will be more pronounced.

Dang, Sierra Nevada, you have this macabre, deep forested darkness on your bottle. And then you pump it with peppered rye and crisp, staunch hops. This brew comes out you like a livid bull. An IPA that is refreshing, accessible yet nomadic, and completely Gothic. Cheers!

Bottle poured a clear tarnished copper with a lasting amber head. Aromas of rye, grapefruit, pine and pepper. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of rye, carmel, pine, grapefruit and pepper with a smooth dry lingering bitter finish.
