So, I almost grabbed a Sierra Nevada Torpedo, at the same price, but then I spotted this beer. I believe in buying local, when you can, so I took a chance on this beer.
It's surprisingly good.
On popping the top, there wasn't much of an initial smell, which surprised me. I was expecting overwhelming hoppiness.
The taste surprised me: Really strong, but not overpowering flavor of hops smacks you mid-tongue. Piney, citrusy, and downright refreshing.
It hits a whole lot harder than the 5.7% ABV that it sports. The drinkability makes it that much worse.
It's a great beer, that proves you don't have to be big, to be great.

Poured into a New Belgium goblet. No freshness date.
A- Pours a dark reddish amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains well before shrinking to a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of sheer surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a solid ring behind.
S- Smells almost like a red ale the way the hops play off the malt. Sweet cereal grain malt with a dash of hop fume.
T- The flavor is also more toward a red ale profile as the malt weighs in with the bready characteristics but not so much that it gets in the way of the subtle yet solidly present hop bitterness. The only thing I don't like is the watery aftertaste but there's enough sweet/bitter duality here to keep my interest.
M- Quenching and somewhat slick with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the fuller side.
O- Not something I would drink all the time but certainly serviceable if it happened to be the only option.
