Scaling an Icy Mountain then Drinking a Torpedo
Scaling an icy mountain then drinking a Torpedo, who else had an excellent Sunday? Jonah, Brian Korth (works at the USFS with Jonah in the Wildlife Dept.), and I headed out this Sunday to scope out Power Creek Trail for visitors we're having at the end of the month. Well, to put it lightly, it's still quite snowy. We went from 4 feet of snow on the trail, to trying to climb up the face of the valley, to walking along (and in!) the creek.
After the hike we cracked open a Sierra Nevada Torpedo Extra IPA. Torpedo is a great beer, a true hop punch. Sierra Nevada invented their own contraption for dry-hopping to pack as much hop flavor as possible. This is a serious beer for serious "need-a-beer" times.
