It always bothers me when beer snobs say Sierra Nevada is good "for a big brewery." This beer shows that SN is better than good, they're amazing, period. For a company that could be living off of brand recognition, Torpedo is a recent addition to their line of beer that shows they're not afraid to try something new. They hit the nail on the head. This is my favorite beer of all time, bar none. I've had IPAs that cost 5 times as much and would sell their soul to the devil to taste half as good as Torpedo. And you can buy it anywhere! 6 out of 5
