First up...

Trying to start the weekend off right, I went to the fridge and grabbed a Sierra Nevada Torpedo. This 7.2% "Extra IPA" is a delicious brew by the always good Sierra Nevada. I don't look for Sierra Nevada to break any molds, but I always know they will produce a good beer.

It looks (amberish orange), smells (citrus and pine) and tastes (citrus hop with a good combination of malt) exactly how an IPA should. (I normally do not likeit when people categorize, but this is how I think it should be.) I think they took their pale ale, and looked to improved everything. Fine job Sierra Nevada, I look forward to any future offerings.

How are you starting your weekend off?


  1. Well, I had today and yesterday off, so technically my weekend already started awhile ago. BUT, I fired up my Friday night with an Ipswich Oatmeal Stout.

  2. I still need to try that Torpedo. Keep hearing good things about it.

    Started the weekend off by finishing my Yeti oak aged imperial stout from Great Divide and moving on to a 22oz of "Collaboration not Litigation ale" from Avery + Russian River.

    Tomorrow @1pm = Baltimore Brewfest '09!!!
