This beer has a red, maybe orange-red color. It is transparent and, like yesterday's beer, has a nice head. In contrast to yesterday's beer (Sierra Nevada Golden IPA), it seems like it has a sweeter smell, possibly a more hoppy one, and tastes more grassy. The beer also ends with a more bitter, grassy aftertaste, but not one that lingers. Overall, it falls out of my tasting preferences in beer. 9:02PM MT

Website Information:
RUTHLESS® RYE

Rustic grains, refined flavor, ruthless character.

Rugged and resilient, rye has been a staple grain for ages and its spicy black pepper-like flavor has been prized by distillers and brewers for centuries. Rye thrives in the harshest conditions and comes to life in Ruthless, a spicy and rugged IPA with fruity, citrus and herbal hop notes balanced with the dry spiciness of the rye, making the beer aggressive yet comforting to bolster against whatever the winter winds may bring.
