Default As I'm drinking my first Sierra Nevada Torpedo...

Wow, this is a great IPA! Much better than Celebration Ale for me. I always thought that Celebration was just too bitter. Not so Torpedo. Torpedo focuses on extreme hop flavor and aroma without excessive bitterness and lets the slightly sweet maltiness come through for a more round and balanced brew. I'm glad to know that Torpedo will be available year round. Torpedo is one of the very best beers That Sierra Nevada has ever made and one of very best beers I've ever had.

Yep, Torpedo is the BOMB! Get it? Yeah, I'm a dork. Love SN Celebration, too.

How about we stop talking about SN Torpedo until it's made it to the Boston area... still another week til we get it from what I've heard...

Or, offer up a beer trade... I can ship a 6-er of Torpedo in trade for something good from the Boston area!

You sir are looking in the wrong places. Picked up a 6er a couple of weeks ago. It is pretty good.

For the price, I love this beer.

It's very tasty, and cheap.
