Sierra Nevada Ruthless Rye ....

Tonight's beer is Ruthless Rye IPA from Sierra Nevada Brewing Company.  The twelve ounce bottle lists 6.6% ABV.  The Sierra Nevada web site shows 55 IBUs and says the beer is a seasonal available early in the year.

Woody Creek White poured with a very thick, bone colored head.  The beer color is a medium copper/amber.  Aroma is fairly mild, with some nice citrus that seems to be more grapefruit than anything else; a little bready.  The bitter grapefruit citrus is prominent in the taste.  There is some malt there that keeps it from being all about the hops.  A little spice.  Leaves you with a little grapefruit-like bitterness as an aftertaste.
