I was very disappointed with this one. It tastes nothing like a "Extra" IPA, more like a severely outdated domestic malt liquor with a couple of hop pellets thrown in. It was almost hard to finish but I stuck it out. It has an almost metalic taste to it. The smell is off and the mouthfeel is just too syrupy. I'm not exactly sure why this has such a high score. I won't be trying this one again, I wouldn't even want to cook with it.

Top of the line mass-produced extra ipa. A great brew for the same price as a comparable boston lager. If you like Torpedo, you will love the seasonal Ruthless Rye. Everything about this beer is nice. Well balanced and executed. I will try this recipe at home. This beer has the characteristics of a small batch brew at a supermarket price. Bonus is that you can get it in the supermarket. I look forward to trying small batches from Sierra Nevada.
