Sometimes there are beers that captivate your taste buds. Sierra Nevada are not known for creating such beers, with limited exception, and Torpedo Extra IPA is no exception to that rule. However, as an American IPA goes, it's still damn tasty. It doesn't do anything unique, but it's really, really well balanced and, per Sierra Nevada's standards, has a perfect combination of thickness and carbonation. So, if you don't feel like dissecting a beer, this is a good way to go for an American IPA. It's not interesting, but it's damn tasty.

First you taste citrus then the super hoppiness. Nice dry finish. A must buy/drink again selection
