Can't believe they ditched Glissade for just a boring version of Torpedo. Kind of pissed at SN right now for taking away my favorite beer for yet another middle of the road crystal malty amber ipa. Last two seasonal changes have been a little too safe imo.

A little earthiness/rubber aroma from the rye. Very sweet maltiness detracts from the earthy/spicy flavor that I would expect from a rye beer. A little slickness left on the lips. Slight peach/apricot esters couple with fruity hops to make this barely interesting.

One 12 pack is enough of this for me - vs. the 10 + 12 packs that I would have bought of Glissade.
