i have had a few more now and i am sort of with you on this .... it probably would be a little better if it were a little less sweet ... still a great rye ipa though .... we need a clone !!!

Just found some at local Sack n Save on the west side of O`ahu. Hmmmm not bad at all. This is my first Rye. It's a different taste for sure. Cost $7.99 for a six pack. I think a 12er was about $14.

I like rye beers, and I like IPAs, and I like most SN products. So, I had high hopes for this one. But it under-whelmed me. There is not much taste. What taste it has is subtle and interesting, but it is just too weak to interest me much.

I just looked up Ruthless (as I was drinking it) to see what kind of ingredients it used, and one thing stuck out to me. It says it has 'experimental' hops for aroma. Anyone know what thats all about? I CBF to look anything up about it honestly, after 3 of these plus a long day at work.

edit: on another note, once we figure out what the deal is with the whole experimental business, a clone shouldn't be too hard since SN seems to be very forthcoming with details about their beer on their website.

Yes I had the pleasure to drink a Ruthless rye last night and it is definitely on I will be on the look out for very good pale ale with a hint of spiciness.

+1.. I'm, SN biggest cheerleaders.
But this seems weak of rye taste.
Now I don't like anything with rye,so that might be it
1st rye beer i had was He'Brew Bittersweet Lenny's R.I.P.A.
That was two years ago.And i still have its after taste .

I saw this at the store the other day, but decided to buy sisters of the moon ipa instead. I'm gonna have to try this next time. I love sierra nevada.
