3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a burnt orange / amber with a nice offwhite head. Aroma of floral citrus hops, light malt and fruitiness fill the senses. Taste is citrusy hops with a bit of lemon peal, some light malt. Palate is nice full body, and good carbonation. Finish is citrusy hops, fruitiness and some sweet spices and light malt add some balance. As the beer warms the flavors and hoppiness become more pronounced and bitter hops dominate this brew. Overall a very flavorful and complex brew

G: Poured into an imperial pint glass.
A: Beautiful cherry-amber beer with a creamy white head. The head is maybe two fingers thick with plenty of bubbles. A little bit of visible carbonation. Great lacing.
S: Strong. Sweetness and hops galore.
T: Lots of hops, although it definitely has a solid backbone to it as well. Generic citrus without any one fruit-type flavor dominating others. Quite balanced.
M: Medium bodied with a decent amount of carbonation. No real taste of alcohol--goes down smooth.
D: Definitely drinkable, although not as much so as SN Pale Ale, or as much so as some of the truly great IPA’s.

Great hoppy IPA. I can’t drink it too often. It’s best when I temper it with other less hoppy beers.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a shiny orange with a fading white head. Smells of many different hops with some notable citrus tones. Has very strong hop flavors and with that bready malt smoothness for a pleasant combination of bitter and sweet. Medium-bodied with a great texture that just fills the mouth and carbonation that tingles the tongue that hides under the bitterness of the hops. Torpedo finishes lightly bitter and definitely dry and lasting.
