A- copper colored body with a thick and creamy head. Left rings of lacing as the head slowly went down. Perfect.

S- Tropical fruits; grapefruit, orange peel, apricot. A hint of alocohol but nothing offensive. Piney and hoppy aromas.

T- Strong hints of pine and plenty of hops. Grapefruit and apricot come through from start to finish. Well balanced.

M- medium carbonation, medium bodied.

Torpedo is everything an IPA should be. I'll be filling a 6 pack of these next time.

Sierra Nevada... Oh how this particular beer of yours keeps me coming back.

I am often not in the mood for an IPA. But I wrecked a car I bought a couple weeks ago today and this is one of my favorite quality beer that you can find quite easily.

A- After the pour the beer ignites an explosive beige head; very rich and creamy looking. Love at first sight. The color reminds me of SueBee Brand orange honey, (which happens to be the honey used in Arizona Green Tea.) You cannot see through to the other side of the glass. Almost as foggy as a wheat beer.

S- the scent is much like christmas. pine and snow. (some of you may be thinking why it is i know the smell of snow) but trust that this beer has that smell. For an IPA the smell is faint but still has intrigue.

T- Superb flavors of aggressive hops and definetly pine. Smells like Christmas, taste like Christmas. SOOOO prefectly balanced; no one note over the other.

M- Very medium bodied for an IPA... almost light. And almost too easy to drink. A 6-pack will run you about $10. Think of getting rid of $10 within 1 hr 15 mins all buy yourself in your oun kitchen. Too good to be true.

O- someone on the westcoast loves this beer with all their heart. There are people out there that swear by this one beer, and its no shame... They have good taste.
