Sierra Nevada Ruthless Rye IPA

2012 Ruthless Rye IPA from Sierra Nevada Brewing in a nutshell: Lots of grains in the nose, lots of rye and lemon in the middle and finish.  Kind of a simple beer, and an extremely tasty one.   Rye is one of the more in-your-face grains, so it imparts a lot of flavor, and in this case, is borderline overpowering.  However, it doesn’t reach that ever looming threshold, and it’s really quite a fine, and very unique brew.  I like it a lot, and this is one I’ll definitely be looking for again.

I give it a 4.4 our of 5.
