4.4/5 rDev +5.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Serving type: Tap
Apperance: light amber, Golden brown
Smell: light hops and hints of citrus
Taste: Like a solid IPA, this beer was filled with piney hops , and but not over bearing. A well balanced amount of bitterness and added citrus. (not as piney as their Celebration though)
Mouthfeel: Fresh, the right amount of carbonation, and a great piney aftertaste.
Drinkability: just the right amount of ABV for the typ of IPA, but I Think i will keep it to one or two of this beer a session.
to sum it up Sierra Nevada made a Solid Balanced Strong IPA, I strongly Recommend this if you are a big IPA fan
Serving type: on-tap

Pint pour: very hazy, copper/ cider colored body, rich-looking. Typical white ringed head that seems to show nice sticking to the glass.
Smells of pine and malt. Subtle.
Tate follows the nose, but this is all about a citrus blast of bitterness in the way of apple/ pine. Astringency here in the biting finish is something I recall from the prior time I tried Torpedo years ago. It's still there, and it's kept me from trying it ever since until now. Let me check the bottle date just to be sure of freshness...
Dated 4 months ago. Not super fresh, but certainly new enough to get accurate impressions. This beer bites hard with the citrus. I normally don't mind aggressive IPAs, but this one just takes that direction using a taste that doesn't please my palette as much as it's imperial version does, for example. Too much sharp citric acid bite overtaking even the pine, and the sweet malts seem to remain far apart from that. Curious. I will revisit this down the road nonetheless. I certainly love Hoptimum. I would expect to feel similar toward this. Different acetaldehyde factor between the two, for certain. Interesting.
