I've not had a beer in a few weeks and this has hit the spot. The 7+% alcohol is also catching up with me pretty quick. The only thing I think it needs is more hops. This might be an IPA, but I could swear that Sierra Nevada's Pale Ale has more hops than this. I demand more hoppy burn.

 I've seen that brand in my local Tesco before. I'll have to check it out next time I get the chance.

Sierra Nevada has AWESOME ale and lager. That said, I actually prefer British and Belgian ale. I keep trying to get Fuller's ESB or Porter here, but its always sold out.

Torpedo has become one of my favorite beers.   I like a hoppy beer, but some of the IPA's have gone overboard.

I prefer their Pale Ale.

You can never have enough hops.

^I keep reading good stuff here about that Dogfish IPA. That's another I'll have to add to my list. ^

I like the Torpedo, but the regular Pale Ale, I like more.  Got a 24 pack sitting in my kitchen right now.

I love the 90 Minute IPA.  I really need to try the 120.  Dogfish is good stuff.

It's good stuff!

It's my favorite beer.  I'm drinking one now.

Sierra NEvada is good shit, and Torpedo is a great Hoppy beer that does not go too overboard that non-hopheads will like.

The Pale Ale burns going in and coming out.

What you need is some Ranger IPA and/or Heavy Sea's Loose Cannon IPA (both high gravity)

I prefer a balanced beer.  I like the really hopped beers, but after one I'm looking for something else.  Bridgeport IPA is another one of my favorites.

Nothing better than some IPA. I can't wait to get some tonight.

Just got done 2 hours ago buying out the last two six-packs of Torpedo left in town and also a pack of their Bigfoot Barleywine.



Hopefully that lasts me through Finals Week.

IMO, their IPA was their weakest brew. Torpedo made it respectable.

Are you sure alcohol is a good idea during finals?

It could be a mini-lab on organic chemistry while I review acid-base equilibrium.



I also have my last composition paper due next Friday, so I need to loosen my thoughts a bit, cuz I'm no writer.  I R only good at math.
