Sierra Nevada TORPEDO extra IPA.
« on: December 23, 2012, 01:04:36 AM »
Yup. Tempted to leave it a one word review, but this beer gets poo done.

I love hops, I really do. I have friends who despise IPA's, but I'm always ready to hoist a new one. One thing I like about Torpedo is that I don't feel like I ate an entire bless'ed cake after drinking one. Stone makes a mean bless'ed IPA, but I always feel stuffed after drinking one.

Pretty sure you could use torpedo to torpedo the argument that all American beer is piss.

I haven't cared for IPA since my buddy was so excited for me to test his home brew.  Right before I put it to my lips he said "It's an Apple Cinnamon".  Why funk up a beer with all that non-beer flavor?  I don't mind IPAs that stuck true to beer, but I'd rather go for a lager or a stout.

Never heard of Sierra Nevada IPA beer.
Have too many real ales in the Uk to name IPA beer alone.
Had a lovely Green King IPA in the local Saturday.

Hate flavoured beers, unbelievable but Germany is full of flavoured lager, even the great Becks has a variety of flavoured beer  :P
The worst i witnessed was bannana flavoured wheat beer  :o

Gah, I just vomited in my mouth.

Sierra Nevada is a pretty big "craft" brewing company in the U.S.  Think of a microbrewery that made it big.

Some of the beers are utterly brilliant / some are not  ;D
I do like real ale and try to drink as many different ones i can find.
Last time i was in the UK I tried Samuel Adams.Had a nice kick to it,
unfortunately where we were there wasnt a lot of drinking places, all were restaurants and such
