Torpedo Extra IPA

Sierra Nevada Brewing (Chico, CA)
"Whole hops, the whole time. What began as a crazy idea scribbled in a pub eventually became our newest year-round hop bomb, Torpedo Extra IPA. The first beer to feature our “Hop Torpedo”—a revolutionary dry-hopping device that controls how much hop aroma is imparted into beer without adding additional bitterness. Torpedo Extra IPA is an aggressive yet balanced beer with massive hop aromas of citrus, pine, and tropical fruit."

This is my gold standard for IPA's and perhaps for all beer. There is no beer I enjoy more.
Fresh, crisp, complex, balanced ... you can throw all the buzzwords you want at it ... it is a well balanced, delicious beer!
