Default Sierra Nevada Ruthless

Casually glanced at the bottom of the Celebration six pack case and noticed a beer I hadn't seen before: Ruthless Rye IPA

Apparently they 86'ed Glissade Golden Bock in favor of this for their late winter / early spring seasonal.


Now here's a little something that you might not like. My DJ's name is Mix Master Mike.

I remember hearing rumors about this recently. Glad to hear that it has been seen in print. I need to go look up the skirt of one of my sixers of Celebration.

Walmart is about the only reason for open or concealed carry that I can get behind. -Randar

I just picked up a twelve pack of this at the store and I must say it's pretty damn delicious. It has that distinct rye spiciness but it isn't the be all end all character of the beer. it's in a great balance with the hop bitterness. I'd like to comment on the aroma but I've been battling a hell of a head cold the last few days and can't smell a damn thing. easily my new favorite seasonal of theirs. it's good enough that I hope it makes it into their year around line up.
That's what Jamil said.

Still can't believe they got rid of Glissade (insert non-existant emoticon of weeping beer geek).

It's a definite "BUY".

Way good.

BTW: I never connected with Glissade...

Wow I saw this ad a month ago in BYO I can't believe it's January already. I can't wait to try. Never had a rye beer yet.

Bought a sixer of this today. Didn't take me long to drink two bottles. I enjoyed them thoroughly, even though I'm not the biggest SN fan.
