Ruthlessly Fresh

This review is a rare impromtu local spur of the moment tasting of Ruthless Rye in hotel room 212 at the Diamond Hotel in the quaint little town of, you guessed it, Chico California. Home of the mighty Sierra Nevada brewery, you can bet your bottom dollar that the brew in this pint glass is about as fresh as it gets. After Hunter at the front desk got us all settled in, the obvious first move was to head right over to the hotel bar for two Ruthless Ryes in pint glasses (we will highly suggest the you-know-which-new-glass as soon as we head back down).

Let's just say we are loving the freshness oozing from this brew. Dina, without any promting exclaimed, "Dark, golden hue with accents of red San Francisco sunset which today displayed a double wainbow.."  (there was a double rainbow in S.F. where we drove up from today!)

We are glad to be here and are going to head out and continue tasting all the IPA we can get our hands one in the town that literally put craft beer on the map.
