This brew pours a reddish brown color with a two finger head, some of which lasts until the end. Heavy lacing is present along with good carbonation.
The smell is dominated by floral and citrus hops; orange, lemon, grapefruit and pine are all present. There is also a rye bread smell along with sweet malts.
The taste starts with a thick bready malt taste then moves to a slightly syrup like fruit taste then finishes with a complex citrus and floral hop taste.
The feel is thick and chewy but at the same time manages to be a little thin and syrup like in the middle.
Overall this is another winner from Sierra Nevada. The label art and name seem to suggest that this brew is a sequel to their "Ruthless Rye". Well Sierra Nevada has succeeded in creating a quality end of summer IPA.
