Ruthless Rye is another example of an overall comment I have of the entire Sierra Nevada portfolio of beers: Technically clean, but lacks depth of flavor. Sierra is the sixth largest brewery in the U.S. and its mass production level prevents it from delivering exceptional beers in any category. We owe Sierra a thanks for pioneering the craft beer business, but unfortunately, its beers have become more macro than micro.

Pours a darkish golden-amber with a finger of frothy white head that fades to a cap. Nose is orange, cotton candy, light pine and some spice from the rye. Flavour is extremely complex. Attack is a bit of candy orange sweetness. Next is a bit of mandarin, followed by a spicy note from the rye. The finish starts slightly sweet and malty, but then transitions to a bitter grapefruit which is soon joined by some spice, a tiny bit of smoke and a tiny bit of biscuit and some pine.
This is the definition of a 5/5 palate. Body is medium with fairly smooth mouthfeel and an fizzy finish.
I’m absolutely loving this. Really really excellent.

Luppolatura presente, anche se in maniera leggera; la segale si sente molto poco, anche se alla fine il risultato è comunque ben equilibrato. Anno 2013.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 fl. oz. bottle from cfrancis (thanks!), served cool in a tulip glass.
App.: Clear copper with a fair orange-light tan head.
Aroma: Dry caramel/toffee notes, a bit peppery, kinda floral, dark bread crust, light berry-like fruitiness, a touch resinous, not bad.
Palate: Medium+ body, full, velvety effervescence.
Flav.: Really nice malts – thick toffee, a little brown sugar, slightly peppery, a touch fruity, a little resinous, dark bread crust, nice; dry with decent bitterness and a dark bread crust and light treacle finish.
Pretty good. The volume could be turned up a little on the hops.
