Had on tap in Pittsburgh on a business trip. Poured into a large 20 oz. pint glass. Dark amber color nicely complimented by a giant 2 finger, creamy, tan head. After taking a whiff, I noticed lots of citrus and piney notes, but also some honey and vanilla from the malts. The taste was sweet and bitter...perhaps bittersweet? I really enjoyed the mellow sweetness that Torpedo brought to the table, but I wish the hops were more prevalent For a California, "extra" IPA, I was expecting a little more on that front, but the taste was overall quite enjoyable. As for the mouthfeel, the carbonation was nice and moderate and it left a slightly bitter aftertaste.
Definitely a solid IPA. I really enjoyed it, and I think it would be a great intro for someone who is looking to transition from Pale Ales into the hoppier IPAs. Looks great, smells great, and tastes great. A great offering from Sierra Nevada.
Serving type: on-tap

One of my favorite IPAs. This one of the more dry IPAs out there. Some IPAs can be slightly sweet but not this one. This is definitely a grown mans beer. The flavor last long after the sip. Highly recommended for experienced beer drinkers. Amateurs stay away.
