ahh crap.

SN is gonna:
1 raise the price
2. run out of citra hops
3. who cares, there wont be a 6er every night for me to buy!




this stuff is terrible. get a bud light instead!


nah, jus kiddin. best IPA i have ever had, and i have two cases of this stuff down t he gullet thus far.

but please, dont tell Sierra Nevada. the $$$ will go up, these are hard times. and i am sure that SNPA sales are down now that this heavenly brew is available, i know i have not purchased one since the torpedo launched.

I was admittedly nonplussed by the Torpedo last year, but I haven't had the opportunity this year yet. I've enjoyed the Celebration for years in spite of its variations. Looking forward to trying out the Torpedo again this year. If memory serves, it tasted grassy last year and the hops didn't so much stand out as bog down the beer.

Anybody know what a sixer goes for in the Seattle area?

I actually didn't care for Torpedo IPA much. My favorite is still Lagunitas IPA or Stone. Definitely better than a bud though lol.

Celebration is fantastic, I love that beer. I like Torpedo, but I tend to only buy it when it's on sale. The 24 oz bottles were great when I was still bottling.

Have you had the chance to try Lagunitas Hopped Stoopid? One of the best beers I've ever had.

Just picked up a sixer of this last night and enjoyed a bottle. Very tasty. I think the Glissade is still my favorite of their offerings though.

I welcome the variations. Keeps things interesting!!
I think the main reason for the variations year to year is that it is a wet hopped ale
