From the brewery ... Sierra Nevada Torpedo Ale is a big American IPA; bold, assertive and full of flavor and aromas highlighting the complex citrus, pine and herbal character of whole-cone American hops.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Into a pint glass:

A: deep orange colored body, off-white fluffy head that stayed with the beer throughout It

S: bitter piney hops, slight malt backbone, but really more so as the beer warms

T: bitter through the piney hops, sweet only once it warmed

M: medium, harsh on the tongue, sessionable, resinous aftertaste and finish

O: I'm glad I keep trying this because it seems to get better every time, good for the style and good for me

Poured in a pint glass. Reviewed from notes.

A- Two finger off-white fluffy head. Deep orange color.

S- Some bittering hops but not too strong. Lemon scent. Some strange, almost fishy smell? Weird.

T- Hoppy up the wazzoo, but not terribly bitter. Nice solid flavor.

M- Medium bodied, extremely well carbonated. Bitter, lingering finish

O: Alright beer. Don't see how they differentiate it from the normal IPA.
