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: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A- Amber color, good head retention and lacing

S- Piney hop aroma perhaps citrusy as well. Def a blend of various hop aromas mixed in with sweet maltiness.

T- Healthy malt backbone, I'm detecting slight english style maltiness which I tend to enjoy in Ipas. Mix of a lot of various hop flavors. Lingering bitterness. Nice.

M- Medium bodied mouthfeel.

Very drinkable but wouldn't be my first choice for a session beer. Definately good overall, but I'm not in love. Would have liked to have given this one a 4.25 overall.
