Sierra Nevada is my favorite XL craft brewer.
Ruthless Rye IPA pours darker, deeper amber with bronze highlights and a tan creamy froth with retention and lacing. Rye bread as it should.
Love the smell, which is malt based toffee and caramel with pine, evergreen style hops and a bit of flowers and winter hills and forest.
Flavors follow the smell, which first w more malt tham most IPAs, which is welcome: caramel, toffee, and malt are the base one which float earthy spice of rye. The finish becomes more piney with elements of spruce, resin, and grasses with a bit of crystal sweetness. Dry finish despite being a sweeter IPA.
Medium bodied, finishing long and dry.
Winter IPA, a little sweeter and more earthy, more pine forest. Must try. Better than its reviews on BA.
