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.

Faint hop nose with some whole grain aromas. Lovely color: shimmering auburn. Caramel upfront then a nice tingly bitter. Overall well balanced.

G_C_R (9) - New Brunswick, CANADA - APR 3, 2015 does not count
Got this in a 4-way IPA Sierra Nevada 12-pack in Bangor. It is drinkable, but not spectacular. Christine found it had a kind of a "baloney" taste to it that she didn’t overly care for.

DiarmaidBHK (4085) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Bottle from Wegman’s Williamsport. pours light brown with a thin khaki head that fades quickly. leaves a lot of lacing in the glass. Solid rye notes on the nose with some decent floral hop notes. definitely get the rye on the tongue as well with some solid hop bitterness on the finish. It’s drinkable though not as spectacular as Terrapin’s offering.

Deep aroma, layered bread, grass, roast caramel. Dark pour, minimal head. In the flavor, well pronounced bitters, rye, piney citrus. Medium full body. Well delivered experience!

Sarlacc83 (1770) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Bottle. A: Caramel color with a foamy off-white head that clings to the side of the glass. Lacing. N: Toffee in the nose, peppercorn right behind. Biscuit and rye bread loaves. Pine and earth. Some grapefruit citrusy and juuuust a touch of pineapple from the hops. More damp fall leaves. T: Moderately sweet - more bready, and a solid amount of balancing bitterness. M: Medium body, foamy, prickly carbonation, touch of alcohol burn (though that might be the hops). O: A very good rye IPA. The hops and the grain complement each other very well, and I will be happy to go back to the box I bought to have the reset of these. Good show.

Pretty nice rye pa. Reddish brown. Caramel, malty, roasty, with nice dose of rye spice and lasting bitterness.

butter14 (12) - Florida, USA - MAR 11, 2015
Strong hop aroma, cloudy amber colored appearance. Strong rye flavor balanced by West Coast hop bill. Strong velvet body from the rye is present, heavy lacing, moderate carbonation levels. Overall delicious, sets the bar for Rye IPAs.

DrunkSanta410 (810) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 10, 2015
Bottle at Home. Pours dark copper, thick fluffy off white head that dissipates slowly. Aroma is lightly piney hops, grainy, a bit of spice from the rye. Taste is lightly bitter, spicy rye flavors, mild caramel sweetness. Hops bring faint pine and citrus flavors. The rye dominates the subtle hop fllavors, but the hoppy bitterness is still there. Medium body, high carbonation. It’s a good beer, but not the best Sierra Nevada IPA.
