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.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

piscator34 (2128) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 22, 2015
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.

Draft. Amber beer with a cream head. Grapefruit and light pine aroma. Grapefruit and pine flavor with light caramel. Medium bodied. Good bitterness. Pine and grapefruit linger with light caramel.

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.

joeneugs (4203) - Livermore, California, USA - JUL 12, 2015
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.

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.
