Amber in color, thick, creamy head, medium-high carbonation.
Sweet hop aroma, could be dry hopped, maybe a little peppery.
Taste is kind of plain, no malt, tons of bitter, lingering bitter after taste. I love IPAs, but this seems to have no balance, and nothing special, maybe even a bit watery. Little bit of alcohol taste too.
Mouthfeel is a bit papery, slightly oily.
The wateryness makes it pretty drinkable though, "tastes meh! less filling!"
I like Sierra Nevada just as much as the next guy, and I've heard nothing but good for Torpedo. As an IPA I guess this is pretty good by-the-books, but to me, it's pretty forgettable.
I'll definitely finish it tho.
