Sierra Nevada - Ruthless Rye IPA, poured into a DFH Spiegelau IPA glass.
Look - Pours a clear dark amber resin with a nice soapy head that dissipates quickly but leaves some chunky lacing.
Smell - Not as much rye as I have come to expect from this sub-style. Peppery. Some citrus hops. Some yeast.
Taste - There's the rye! Pepper and rye with juicy citrus hops. Lots of pepper. Finishes hyper-bitter.
Mouthfeel - Light-medium body with good carb. Rests bitter hoppy like orange rinds, a bit high on the AAU %. Rye is overshadowed a bit here. OK drinkability due to the hot malt and hot pepper.
Overall - Not my favorite, interesting combination of ingredients here, there are better rye beers. Founders still wins this one.

The appearance of this beer is spectacular. Crystal clear deep amber color with a good finger and a half of head. The aroma on this beer is nice and hoppy with the spicyness of the rye coming through. The rye gives a very unique malt backbone to this beer. It's great, as a IPA lover I am really enjoying this. Pick some up if you get a chance.
