    i have yet to try that one. we have a pretty limited selection of rye beers round these parts. i've only had founders ryepa and hop rod rye i think it was called. both were delicious.

    I dont generally rum into a lot of rye beers around here either. But i saw the ruthless when i stopped at the grocery store and had to try it. Very good. Just enough rye to get that earthy grain flavor without being overpowering.

    Cool!
    I would make a rye comment, but can't think of one right off ....

    In beer there is freedom.

    Since you asked, id boost gravity a bit if it were my brew. Probably shoot for 70 flat and make sure you keep the rye character. Also maybe try a funkier yeast strain. Maybe a witbread ale yeast or something along those lines.

    Of course doing those things would turn it into a wholey different beer

    Ok on the gravity. Not sure about the yeast. I'll have to think about that one.

    I like the gravity. The yeast though... I like the rye character in a highly hopped beer if it's met with a malty finish. I don't think a funky yeast would play well on the palate with that.

    if it's bad send a few bottles to me and make me drink it.

    i like to experiment.

    sometimes it works, sometimes it don't. This is a flavor combination I'm interested in experimenting with but have nothing to point to and say "see" but belgian ipa, white ipa and a few others are out there now that are pretty good.

    I'll research the flavor profile of the yeast and maybe some others to see if I can mix it up a bit.
