On tap at the Sierra Nevada Torpedo Room

A: Pours deep golden amber with a frothy white head that settles and laces well.

S: Coffee, some kinda herbal hops, and some caramel malt sweetness.

T: Assertive coffee hits first and lingers, some pine and herbal hop notes, a little light citrus and fruity notes, and a touch of caramel malt sweetness.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: First time I've gotten to try a coffee IPA. Different but very cool.
