Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. Torpedo Extra IPA

The past few months I’ve really grown a lager liking of Sierra Nevada beer. I’ve always enjoyed their beers. They brew great beers have been doing great brewing for as a very long time. But I have more of a fondness for Sierra Nevada beer. Torpedo Extra IPA, 7.2% ABV is a classic beer from Sierra Nevada. They have been brewing that beer since day one or pretty close to that. Torpedo Extra IPA has an IBU of 65, which is a little above average for an IPA. Torpedo Extra IPA pours a deep copper color with a three-finger pillow like white head that is slow to fade into a bright white halo. The aroma is of onions, some garlic, pine notes. This Torpedo Extra IPA is dank and strong smelling. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma, you find the garlic and onion flavors wrapped in pine and hop flavor with the slightest earthy flavor and a stronger alcohol note. Torpedo Extra IPA finish with a more malted flavor that lead to a bitter dank after taste that linger until cleansing your palate or taking another sip. This beer, Torpedo Extra IPA is good, B+ good. I like the stronger flavor on this, and it not overly strong, just enough. So if you like stronger IPAs then I recommend Torpedo Extra IPA. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
