Torpedo by Sierra Nevada is some pretty hoppy stuff! I enjoy the regular Pale, and can have one of these Torpedos, but can’t handle a second – it’s just too hoppy for me. It kinda kills my taste buds for anything else. My husband, on the other hand, LOVES this brew! He actually prefers it over the regular Pale Ale by Sierra – and would probably even add some dry hop leaves on top for garnish! Yes, I married a Hop Head!
Back in the day, I would only drink browns or wheats, I’d try a sip of my husband’s beer and tell him it tasted like erasers (the hoppy or bitter taste). I have grown, over the years to appreciate hoppier beers, but I guess EXTRA hoppy is an acquired taste that I haven’t reached, yet.
