3.78/5 rDev -2.6%
Appearance: Dark copper, clear, thick fluffy off-white head that dissipates quickly. Light lacing.
Smell: Very malty, bready rye is noticeable. Some fruity citrus, but resoundingly sweet aromas dominate.
Taste: Grapefruit leads, spice and sweet rye. Hops are mild, some pine in the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium body, strong carbonation that dissipates as the beer sits. Long lasting flavor.
Overall: I really enjoy the malt-hop balance in this brew. The malt is sweet, but provides a nice spice from the rye and moderated well by citrus hop flavor. A very enjoyable brew.

Pour is dark copper with a lot of light tan tight head. Nose is mild, pine hops, light spice, dirty wheat and some bread crust. Taste is less bready, still mild pine hop with a light spice, touch of bread through the back on a smooth light body, decent carb and light abrupt bitterness in the finish.

4.31/5 rDev +11.1%
A - Nice 2 inch head when poured aggressively. Darker brown than expected, but I'm guessing the rye malt has something to do with that.
S - Not as hop fragrant as most IPAs. More pine than citrus. A little sweet, and a little malty.
T - Very well balanced. Hops, sweetness, and a malty backbone.
O - Sierra Nevada always makes a quality PA. This isn't a super hop intense beer (which I love), but it's still very good with a unique taste profile. Definitely something to try. Prost!

Cellar temerature in a mug.
Ruthless Rye presents a three-finger white head on a pure, clear amber body.
That spicy rye is totally in the aroma, along with earthy, piney hops. A touch of honey, too.
The rye combines with a fruity citrus flavor upon first taste. It's like lime to me. The finish is malty, bready, and dry, with some lingering rye spiciness. Quite good.
It's fairly full-bodied for the style, which I like.
This is a really good malt-forward IPA and it incorporates rye exceptionally well.
