Wow I think I have found one of my favorite IPAs to date. Apparance out of this world more than you expect with caramel color with lots of beautiful lace. Taste has nice citrus kick but with some spice added, the moutheel is perfect very smooth easy to drink. Please purchase this beer!

I have been trying quite a few IPA's lately and although many of them are seriously great beers, I know I can always count on Sierra Nevada to give me what I am looking for. I am a huge Torpedo fan and I must say that I find the Ruthless Rye to be right up there with it and could definitely drink gallon after gallon of this stuff and be quite content, without the need to look elsewhere. Now, in my book, that is an excellent beer !!
