Torpedo Extra IPA (Sierra Nevada)

Took a gamble and picked up a 6 pack of these in Austin, TX.

Pours a lovely tan colour, huge aromas flood out, full of powerful but delicate fresh hop smells.

Rich warming malt, perfect sweetness following through to one of the best hop finishes I've ever had. So much flavour, a psychedelic mix of fresh grass, juicy citrus and lovely lingering bitterness.

Leaves the palate begging for another sip! Its 7.2%, but you would never know, so perfectly balanced is the malt and hops.

10/10 Wow, one of the best beers I've ever had, a mind blowing American style IPA


  1. Sounds fab, Sierra N coming up trumps again.

  2. Great beer, but second in my mind to Pliny the Elder by Russian River.
