I was sitting at the Lionheart in Albany,NY last night and looked around the taps and saw this Sierra Nevada Torpedo Ale, which i had never seen, nor heard of. I was rather confused by this beer as it tastes almost exactly like Celebration ale, come to find out that its practically the same recipie but they are testing a new hopping technique. Celebration Ale being one of my favourite beers, i am very excited to practically have it fresh all year long. Anyways on to the beer
A- A nice dark amber with lots of noticable carbonation very pleasing.
S- Very nice sharp hop smell here, with a hint of some malt, i didn't spend too much time here, i needed to devour this beer.
T- Just like Celebration ale, upfront with an enjoyable sweet maltyness followed by that amazing cascade hop bang that lingers perfectly.
M- Typical Sierra Nevada carbonation with a medium gravity, it flows nicely through your mouth and down to your stomach.
D- I didn't know the ABV on this and neither did the bartender. I had about 3 of these and was feeling it, so i'd say its around 7%. I could drink these till the cows come home, so quite dangerous.
Serving type: on-tap

poured this into a pilsner glass (Blue Moon) just for grins, and because I plan on drinking some real crap later as a science experiment... nice bright orange and caramel-y color with a medium thick creamy head. smell is slightly hoppy with an amateurish kind of aroma to it also... taste is caramel malts with hops and slight abrasive bitterness at the end. some fruits in there on the middle of the tongue.
overall, a decent brew. not terribly bad in any way and I nice 7.2% abv.... now, on to the CRAP!!!! tally ho!
