Sierra Nevada Communications Coordinator, Bill Manley, provided the following update on Ruthless Rye IPA this week…
It will probably go through two more iterations before it’s in production. (in fact, I had version 4 yesterday) The version you had was brewed with 2010 hops. The production batch will use the new 2011 crop so should have a more pronounced hop nose.
It is +/- 6.6% ABV high 50′s IBU and dry-hopped with Experimental varieties (366,) Citra, and Chinook.
Won’t be on draught until the official release in January.
