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
