Aroma: Smells very Torpedo-like. Lots of peach and stonefruit character up front. A touch of background sweetness that reminds me of tropical fruit. Clean fermentation character.
Appearance: Brick red pour with a brown hue. Sticky off-white head that retains beautifully.
Flavor: More peach and stonefruit with a bready base. Much more balanced than the aroma. Balance is decidedly bitter but the malty base definitely asserts itself from time to time. Finish is clean and dry.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Slightly oily and a little bit of warmth.
Overall impression: Very "Sierra Nevada"-like beer. Seems to have a house flavor. I'm not complaining. I love it. However, I don't see much of a range in their beers. Other than Bigfoot and Celebration none of their hoppy offerings seem all that different. Not complaining, just noting. If it's available, I'll have it again.

This American Amber or Red Ale, is a interesting combination of beers styles that i approve of, though i am not a beer chemist, it sparked me to call a friend of mine who is, to have them explain this flavor to me. It is defiantly better then i thought it would be, although I had no idea what to expect from a 'red ipa' i was impressed with Sierra Nevada's Flipside. Its smokey dark appearance was a interesting factor, but its smell, was the sort of beer I wish they would bottle and smell as an AXE body spray. The mouth feel and taste where both outstanding in my opinion and I did really like this beer.
