Torpedo Extra IPA
by Sierra Nevada Brewing Company

A lot of you have seen this before, but most of you haven’t. This was my first video and it took almost five hours to shoot. Crazy to think the actual shoot only takes about 30 minutes now, including setup and takedown in that time. It takes about two hours to edit each one, then it takes an hour to do the blog post and the social sharing. All in all, 3-3.5 hours to produce each episode, not counting all of the time selling, scheduling guests, promoting the site elsewhere, and meeting new beer folk.

It’s a crazy life!

Just the facts:

Appearance: Hazy Copper
Smell: Floral, Citrus
Taste: Bitter, Piney, Dry
Mouthfeel: Creamy, Medium Bodied, Tangy
Drinkability: Not a session beer, but not so bitter that you can’t drink more than one

Allagash White was on tap at The Blind Tiger last week. Worth a jaunt in that direction – they also had Pennichuck St. Florian Dopplebock – aged 1yr (company is no longer in existence) that is divine. Two great reasons to trek through the snow….

Yay! First comment and I don’t even have an actual post up. I finished the video, I just can’t export it from Final Cut Pro

It’s confusing to everyone (and is mostly a stylistic thing) but I’m not a huge fan of Allagash White. Still, I have been amazed at how prevalent it is on tap in my beloved Durham, NC. Even more so considering how many “real” cities seem to be lacking it. So take a trip down South, rub elbows with some Duke fans and drink great craft beer! It’s also got a really good rating at Beer Universe:

Nice post Hagan. Any idea on the alcohol level for the Torpedo?

What beer is up next?

The ABV is up on the right in the “Today’s beer” box…

Next up, something from Indiana!
