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.

Pour is a deep copper color with a thin white head, and some rather lively carbonation. Nose is of citric hops mostly. Taste is similar, and the rye kicks in at the end, and makes it just a little bit more bland. It is a good substitute over the malts which are used in similar IPAs and a nice change of pace, not quite as conventional though still rather good.

puzzl (3237) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 13, 2012
Bottled. This is a seriously mediocre IPA, oversweet, with dull hops, and the rye adding nothing but an uncomfortable astringency. Really not much else to say than that.

12oz bottle–pours amber/copper with a retaining light tan head. Aroma is orange/pine, rye/grain. Taste is rye/grain, pine/some orange hops. Interesting. Becomes more medium body by the 2nd ˝.

Draft at Haymarket. Pours a deep copper color with an offwhite head. The nose is bright, citrus forward but then a strong grainy quality, hint of caramel as well. Nice. On tasting, firm bitterness, hop forward. Citrus dominates before the grain really comes across, drying out the palate overall. Pretty solid IPA, but not outstanding.

fiveacestx (464) - Texas, USA - FEB 12, 2012
Bottle - pours dark gold with a quickly dissipating head. I definitely detect a spicy rye flavor and some citrus but the palate is lacking. A decent beer but not my favorite IPA.

Damn, this is good stuff! I was sort of expecting something a little bit mellower from SN, but no! Sierra is full in on the rye! Full in on the hop bite on the back end. Excellent! One of my favorite SN beers!

Pours a super clear amber topped with a soapy white head and a peppery aroma of rye mixed with pine-like Chinook hops. Fairly strong rye flavor mixes well with peppery and spicy hops. Quite dry. Big smack of hop bitterness in the finish. Quite tasty if you don’t mind rye in your beer.
