look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from 12oz bottle to pint glass

A- pours a clear amber with a nice 2 fingers of head initially. Head slowly dissipates to about a quarter inch that persists and leaves a nice lacing as you drink.

S- earthy and spicy with some of the chinook and citra coming in at the end

T- the rye earthiness and spiciness is really up front for me, then you get the bittering qualities of the hops on the back of your tongue that linger for as long as you will let them. The taste sticks with you long after swallowing.

M- not overly carbonated, feels soft on the tongue and in the mouth. No complaints.

O- I personally love this beer and have a hard time passing it up when it is available. The rye just adds a little peppery bite that I find irresistible. At 6.6% some would argue it isn't a sessionable brew but I firmly disagree. An Oakland A's game and a Ruthless Rye or 6 is a great evening.
