Reviews: Sierra Nevada Torpedo Extra IPA

Sierra Nevada Torpedo Extra IPAAn India Pale Ale (IPA) brewed by
Sierra Nevada Brewing Company

ChicoCalifornia USA 

Pours into a tulip glass with a huge fluffy, nearly tan head – very nice. The lacing is strong and thick. The aroma is strong on the hops. It is very bitter on first taste and never really smooths out but after a few sips and as the palate starts to evolve a slight malt backbone comes out. A very impressive selection from Sierra, especially for a hop head. I really surprised my self rating a Sierra this high. It certainly could use a bit more depth but that isn’t what this one is about.

My score: 4.1
