Sierra Nevada Torpedo Extra IPA is an excellent, well crafted beer. I wasn't expecting a whole lot from this beer at first glance. I'd purchased one for a tasting prior to Superbowl 45 (Go Packers) to go with our usual home party fare of chicken wings, bean dip, and good beer.
Let me tell you, at first taste, you know you are drinking something really good. It's a bold IPA, as the label suggests. It's right up front and assertive with great florals piney bite and a hopsy finish. You will taste this one from the first sip to the last drop, but it isn't quite as overpowering as others have suggested. After having sampled a few Belgian style White beers prior to this one, it was nice to taste an unabashedly forward beer on the pallete.
A: Golden amber in color. Has a decent, lingring head that doesn't retreat.
S: In your face with hops pine and floral scents.
T: Delicious, nice bite up front and a slight linger from the pine notes. Otherwise dry and meaty.
M: Not overly gassy, good amount of carbonation. Bitter finish fades slowly.
D: Definitely drinkable. You'd want to pair it with bold foods that can handle the hops. Works well with chicken wings, beef brats and all manner of meaty comfort food.

Another great IPA that I think everyone should try it smelled great,wasn't hard to go down and didn't leave that horrible bitter aftertaste in your mouth when your done drinking it. Just wish I would have poured it In a glass rather than straight from the bottle but other than that it was great
