Ya, I've used it once where I split a 10gallon batch. Half got WLP090 and the other half US05. It made a great beer. I'm getting ready to brew a few more batches with it.

Why the 90/75 minute boils with the Rye? Is that preference or something to do with the rye itself?

It is actually my personal favorite brew....thanks so much for sharing the recipe! I have 3 beers I make that will place in every competition I enter and this is one of them....Yoopers oatmeal stout and my iipa recipes are the others...but to me the rye is in a league of its own!

I had one of these again last night and I like it very much. Last year, upon tasting my first, I thought I was really tasting the rye in there, but I'm wondering if what I was really tasting was a spicy hop profile. I can't say I really know what the rye would taste like, due to my limited experience.

I have made a rye pale ale and a couple of rye IPAs with the rye ranging from 11-16% and I think I was picking up a subtle rye flavor sometimes, but not really at all in the 11% Rye PA. I did think there was a noticeable difference in the mouth feel and head, but not so much in the flavor. Denny was informed that they are using no more than 10% rye in this and the clone recipes I've seen use even less. I like Ruthless and would like to make something like it, but I don't know whether the rye has that much to do with it.

I could have some other flavors in my beers which cover up the rye more, but I do wonder if the distinctive spicy flavor I get in this has more to do with the hops than the rye.

What do others think?

I used 15% flaked rye in my latest Rye PA (all grain) batch. There is a very similar taste on the back end to the ruthless rye, which I assume is the rye. I didn't use any crazy hops, just cascade and galena for a citrusy/floral bite. I know I'm being bias, but after my non-dry hopped and non-carbonated taste test, this might be the greatest beer I've ever made/consumed.
I should also mention that I think mine is a little sweeter than the ruthless, and I attribute that to the honey malt I used.
