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.

zeke626 (425) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 21, 2012
Draft at Buster’s. Nice amber body with off-white head. Aroma and taste of piney hops, caramel malts, rye/pepper, and light citrus. Nice and well-balanced. Dry, bitter hop finish. Very drinkable.

hotstuff (4094) - Indiana, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Backlog rating on 9-02-2012 (Bottle) This beer has a small off-white head that is fully lasting, transparent golden body, very fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing adorns my glass. The aroma is pine, citrus hops, spicy, light rye, and malt. The flavor is pine hops, moderately bitter, malt, peppery, and light rye. The mouthfeel is aggressive and this beer is medium bodied. The hops are upfront as they should be for this beer’s style. It is a beer for the hopheads and is worth trying.

sudomorph (609) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 14, 2014
12oz bottle packaged 01/21/14. Pours a clear, deep orange with a thin, off white head. Aroma is a blend of rye, bread, caramel, pine, and resin. Taste is balanced. Resin, pine, a bit of sweet caramel, bread, and some rye spice. Medium body and carbonation. A bit resiny/syrupy in the mouth with a bubbly carbonarion. Overall a solid brew. Nice flavours of pine resin, bread, caramel, and rye. Would get again.

orange_3084 (102) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 12, 2014
Pours slightly hazy amber brown colour with one finger of white head. Not the strongest aroma. Grapefruit and floral aromatics most present with bread and a little toffee as well as it warms. Thin, slick body. Taste is quite bitter and dry with a little spiciness. Finish is dry. Nice, but definitely not the best beer of Sierra Nevada.

Bottle. Deep golden colour with an off-white head. Aroma is fruit, malt, hop, rye. Flavour is fruit, malt, hop, rye, bread, pine, caramel, peaches. Nice beer.

Andrus86 (29) - Busselton, WA, AUSTRALIA - SEP 11, 2014
BOTTLE. 2013, fluffy white head with a amber gold colour & plenty of floating particles. The rye is all nose & taste is just hops/bitterness that warms you up, long bitter/spice after taste. Sourced form Cellarbrations Capel

rollerton (38) - SWEDEN - SEP 5, 2014
Pours three fingers of head, very distinct smell of fresh IPA. The taste is great, perfectly balanced for this kind of beer. A really good IPA!

Rhf9120 (9) - North Providence, USA - SEP 3, 2014 does not count
This is a decent beer. Nose is of grapefruit, bread, and rye. The flavor had a decent sweetness to it with only a slight bitterness. In my opinion the mouthfeel was alittle watery but not enough to ruin the beer.

HammerTroll (496) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 1, 2014
Hazy golden color, small to medium sized white head. Aroma is tropical fruits, bread and malt. Slightly sweet, some bitterness. Thin to medium body (closer to medium), average carbonation. Good.

ElCapitan22 (71) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Pours a cloudy amber color with decent lacing. Tastes slightly bitter and of rye. Strong rye flavor and an overall strong beer. Would def drink again.

adster (348) - HUNGARY - AUG 31, 2014
Elegáns megjelenése nem különben kifinomult jegyeket takar. Levegőztetve kellemesen édeskés, mályvacukros aromákat csillant meg a halványan gyantás árnyalatok mögött, amiket milliónyi apró buborékkal tarkított, csípőskés és gabonásan telt test foglal magában. Citrusos karaktere árnyalja tovább a képet, így téve egy pikáns, ízgazdag különlegességgé italunkat.
