Drink of the Week: Sierra Nevada Ruthless Rye IPA

Forget what the label tells you—there’s nothing ruthless about this latest release from Sierra Nevada. Bright and snappy, this 55-IBU IPA offers loads of piney, grapefruity hops up front, followed by a supremely creamy mouthfeel, peppery rye spice and a clean, brisk, bittery hop finish. A replacement to Sierra Nevada’s Glissade spring seasonal, we’re already allocating fridge space to this beer for as long as it’s available. It ships from the brewery this week, so look for it on store shelves in the coming days. Sierranevada.com for distribution info.
