Sierra Nevada Torpedo Extra IPA is often referred to as the best fair priced IPA. It is consistently stated as a go to beer for many hop-heads out there such as myself. I cannot wait to review this ever so respectable brew. Enjoy!
Appearance- Beautiful golden amber hue to this beer. With the initial pour, there is about a one finger head that seems to be lasting quite a while. Definitely a creamy head but there are some large bubbles. It has low transparency and has medium to high carbonation. Great appearance to this beer.
Smell- With the first sniff of this IPA, I get a reasonable hit of floral and piney hops. With the second waft, I get some tropical hints of orange with a crisp finish to the nose. Final smell with a swirl of the glass there is definitely more presence of bitter hops there is a strong bit of hops in this beer without a doubt.
Taste- Right on the back of the tongue you get a beautiful dry pine and floralness to this brew. Followed directly by that sense of orange that I pick up before with even a little grapefruit possibly. Second sip I get wow way more of the tropical tastes with just a bite of hops to finish it off. Very impressed with the taste especially the dryness on the back of the tongue.
Mouthfeel- Very very smooth to drink for 7.2% it’s totally hidden and well balanced. It is a medium bodied beer that is just light enough to enjoy multiple in an evening. This mouthfeel is how I expect an American IPA to be.
Overall, I thoroughly enjoy this beer and would definitely keep a six pack of this at all times in the fridge. I would recommend it to every craft beer drinker and even to those who are just now exploring the realms of IPA's. There is a bitterness to it but not too overwhelming for anyone. This beer is a two thumbs up. CHEERS!

Good sh*t. This is beer. It is a good beer. It is cheap, it is drinkable and this beer will get you drunk. My girlfriend had wine, I had this beer. I had others but this is the beer I liked most. I will order this beer again. It was a bit strong for my 8 year old, so we mixed it with soda water.
