Sierra Nevada won’t be releasing Glissade this spring. Instead, Ruthless Rye IPA will take it’s spot. Why? Sierra laments that the first release of the maibock was successful, but the second year wasn’t a great as they hoped. The style is a hard sell for some. In case you haven’t noticed, Sierra Nevada does really well with hoppy beers, so ruthless is sure to be a hit.
Ruthless IPA is brewed with this rustic grain for refined flavors – combining the peppery spice of rye and the bright citrusy flavors of whole-cone hops to create a complex ale for the tumultuous transition to Spring.
Style: IPA, brewed with rye malt
Availability: 12oz bottles, draft
Arrival: Taps at Sierra Taproom – 12/20/11. Early 2012 debut
