Torpedo and Ranger IPA 12-packs are my go-to IPA's in my area.

The last 12 pack of Ranger I had tasted like cardboard; I must have gotten an old or bad batch. Torpedo is real good but I prefer Celebration...both are really great actually

Love the Celebration and Torpedo. I'd choose Celebration if I could have only one though.

So it's kind of like running an entire tankful of beer through a Randall?

I want to try a blind tasting with Torpedo and Celebration...just for fun. I think I can easily tell them apart.

There's only one way to find out.

It's constantly circulating and they run the beer through 3 times I believe and at varying temperatures, I think they start around 58° and then go down from there to around 40° i believe
