Poured from bottle to Sam Adams glass.
A - Nice and clear amber coloring.
S - Pleasant traditional flowery aroma.
T - Very hoppy. Good taste, but very strong.
M - The feel is smooth. The aftertaste is extremely bitter. Almost soapy. Not a fan.
Summary - I've been trying to expand my beer experiences. One area in particular I've been wanting to explore is IPAs. So far, I've enjoyed Dogfish Head, but not Sierra Nevada's Torpedo. It's simply way too strong with hops and an awfully bitter aftertaste.

4.29/5 rDev +3.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Appearance: Rich cooper color, clear. A creamy beige two finger head when poured; dies down relatively fast leaving an thin uneven coating of foam on the surface of the beer and lots of sticky lacing on the sides of the glass.
Smell: Slightly sweet and citrusy. Mild aroma of malt. Smooth hops. An extremely slight pine scent. Nice and enticing.
Taste: Citrus (grapefruit. lemon) without being acidic. Delicious mild hoppy flavor for the finish.
Mouthfeel: Light body. Lots of mild carbonation. Ever so slight dry finish.
Overall: An excellent IPA. I would gladly drink this again. The perfect amount of hops with a delicious flavor. Refreshing.
Serving type: can
