Ruthless is a nice coppery amber, not quite as red as celebration but a nice darker IPA as I like them. A bone white head builds nicely leaving lots of lacing as I've come to expect from Sierra Nevada beers.
The aroma has a strong earthy spiciness with nice piney background.
The flavor is very rye forward but this is unmistakeably a Sierra Nevada IPA. Piney hops back up the spicey rye while caramel maltsmake a nice lightly toasted breadiness.
Excellent mouthfeel, close to medium and lightly creamy and perfectly carbonated.
I do believe this has become my favorite rye beer, a spot formerly held by Great Divide Hoss. They were not shy with the rye! Another great beer from Sierra Nevada (though I will miss Glissade).
