I drank my first Sierra Nevada beer in the old Elliott Bay bookstore in Seattle the night T.C. Boyle read his story about the full-body condom. Boyle was deadpan, funny, and resplendent in a jacket that looked like an Aztec blanket. Torpedo, which I discovered yesterday, refreshed the memory and me. It’s good–hoppy, a full-bodied 7.2% but not overpowering, very smooth.
