Sierra Nevada Torpedo Is that a Rolls-Royce Phantom I just drank, smells like the most kryptonite dank. I'd diss J-Lo for this.

It's like Athena was brewing something to impress me. Is that Brad Pitt drinking it? Perhaps?

Definitely send a six to Prince Will, my man.

A: Dark amber color with a creamy beige head. heavy lacing on the glass

S: Citrus and grapefruit hops. Piney notes as well.

T: Citrus and strong pine flavors. This is a very strong IPA,very impactful.. Not a big malty beer, more grapefruit,and pine texture.

M: Great mouthfeel with just the right amount of body.
