I sampled two new beers last week that I thought I would share here in addition to the normal reviews.
The first is Sierra Nevada's "Torpedo" IPA. I absolutely loved this beer. It's everything an IPA should be. It looks pretty in a wine glass, has a great nose and really citrusey hoppiness from tons of (i assume) Cascade. Joy in a glass.
The second would make a good beer for people who don't like beer. Orange Blossom Cream Ale from Buffalo Bill's brewery basically tastes like a lightly hopped fizzy orange drink. Think Orangina or carbonated Tang. It's not unpleasant, but doesn't quite scratch that beer itch. Good thirsty summer drink though.
