Ahhh, finally a year-round IPA from one of the godfathers of craft beer. My only hope is that this beer will be as prevalent in hoo-hum sports bars as SNPA currently is. I know it won't happen for awhile, as Sierra doesn't want to cannabalize its pale ale draft lines, but it is inevitable. Basically this is the new go-to beer from Sierra. Sure I would love to call thier wet-hop harvest the go-to beer, but let's face it, wet-hop beers are meant to be drunk when fresh. Ummm, I mean, drank in staggering quantities when fresh because there is only a pitifully small window of time for you to enjoy thier knee-weakening deliciousness. Damn, I need to get back on track here. Torpedo. There we go. If you are looking for a description, basically take that brash, West Coast hop finger print that defines a beer from Sierra and crank that puppy up to 11! Rich, sharp, piney, herbaceous, spicy....mmm. These guys invented the wheel way back when with the pale ale, and now they have given us newbie hop-heads a brand new round thingie to roll around and play with. Cheers and please send some Chico Estate Harvest this way come Fall. Pretty please?

I gotta admit, the score the brothers gave this little pearl has me curious, my friends. I guess that's the greatest thing about beer and wine though in particular; they'll appeal differently to anyone who tries it! I wouldn't recommend this beer on a hot day or during a bbq on the porch or poolside, but if you're looking to relax in front of the tube or while pouring over whatever texts you prefer, then you may be in for a nice little treat!
