3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Moriartys. Hazy gold pour. Off white froth on top that left a fair amount of lace and a lasting foamy ring. A brashier version of the Torpedo. Less refined. Harsher but brighter. Bitter orange pith. More adventurous. On the fence though about whether I like it better.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Light amber, sparklingly clear.
Full body, intense flavor, smooth mouthfeel, low carbonation and heat, long palate.
Bitter, crisp and mildly sweet, nice balance.
Complex and elegant flavor, hoppy, floral, hoppy, resiny,
Delicious, like most beers from Sierra Nevada.

1.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
On draft at Brick and Barley in Grand Forks. Gold in colour with medium carbonation. Bizarre aromas of Milkbone dog treats, old leather shoes, and citrus peel. Tasted slightly better, with more typical IPA notes of grapefruit, cut grass, and pale malt coming through, but still hampered greatly by this dam/ earthy unpleasantness. Medium bitterness and medium bodied. I have all kinds of love for Sierra Nevada, but this is just a bad beer. Judging by the rates, this might have been an off keg. Drainpour.

Nice IPA, fresh on tap at Aces and Ales. Pine and fruit forward. Not sure the hops used here. Medium bitterness but nice hoppy aroma and flavor.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the Torpedo Room. It pours a clear golden color with an off white head. The aroma is very thick with juicy tropical fruit and lighter honeysuckle notes. A little floral. The flavor is full with citrus, papaya, peach, light honey and toasted malt. Nice body and full, yet drinkable on the palate. A good IPA from SN. Better than Torpedo IMO.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at the Torpedo Room. (listed at 8% and 65 IBU) Pours orange gold with a white head. Aroma seems pine. Med body. Flavor is pine, caramel, hints of spiciness like rye or yeast? Stone fruit comes forth. Mild flavors for me, but it is quite tasty.
