Around The World In 80 Beers Episode 98: Sierra Nevada Torpedo IPA

Also, also...

Sierra NevadaTorpedo IPA

Pours a slightly cloudy amber. Head is beige-ish, medium-sized and rather frothy.

First sip: A lot of hops up front that almost but not quite hides a sweet malt. There is a tiny touch of citrus lurking in the background. Medium mouth-feel with a mild carbonation tingle on the tongue, and quite astringent. The bitter hops after-taste goes on and on... and on...

...and on...

This is the second beer that made me go WAH! HOPS! but it's not as intense as Urquell. A little too much hops for my taste and not a brew I would sit down for a session with, but it would kill a hot curry. The beer burp is nice.

Same Again, sir? Um, no. I'll have another Pale, though.
