Beer Review #24: Sierra Nevada Torpedo Extra IPA

Website description: Torpedo Extra IPA is an aggressive yet balanced beer with massive hop aromas of citrus, pine, and tropical fruit.

ABV: 7.2%

My thoughts: This is a pretty solid IPA. It’s got a nice, mildly hoppy aroma. It’s a beautiful and somewhat dark amber color. There’s a hint of something slightly sweet and floral that I can’t quite put my finger on. It’s pretty smooth with the typical IPA bite at the end. There’s not much more to say. Its a bit above average with a good hop flavor and won’t let you down, but it’s not one of those beers that really wows you.

Beer Review #21: Red Tail Ale

Website description: It is brewed in the traditional “old world” manner, using premium two-row malted barley, hops and our own special proprietary yeast strain. It is an amber ale with a rich complex refreshing flavor and a crisp dry finish.

ABV: 6%

My thoughts: It’s got a hell of a bite! Smells nice, slightly floral. For all of the hop overload at the end, the flavor is actually kind of mild. It’s a pretty good and fairly crisp beer, but if you can’t handle the bitterness of hops, this isn’t for you!
