Torpedo is an assertive American IPA deep reddish-gold in color, with a smooth and bready malt presence and over-the-top hop aromas. The beer has a solid bitterness and a massive hop flavor, yet remains easy drinking with a pleasant dry finish.

Citrus and woody aroma are the first notes I detect in the nose. Frothy white foamy head and a clear amber color are characteristic in this IPA. Bitter and slightly sweet flavor, hops are dominant but not overpowering. Nice dry finish and a medium body make this an easy drinking but flavorful beer. Ilike this beer and would recommend it highly to anyone looking for a good IPA.

Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a clear copper with a nice fluffy head and lacing through out the glass, aroma is of fresh hops with citrus notes, the flavor is well balanced with the hops and the malt, has a bitter finish but it works.

Pours a crystal clear deep copper almost orange color with a huge creamy/bubbly beige head that sticks itself to my glass all the way down. Aroma is pine, resin, citrus with a hints of caramel and tropical fruit deep underneath. Taste is much the same. Starts with some pine and resin followed by some caramel that peaks through followed by more bitter citrus with a bone dry finish. Body is medium, carbonation is medium as well, mouthfeel is resinous and a little sticky. Another hops showcase from Sierra Nevada. Lots of West Coast hops with a hint of malt. 7.2% is well hidden.

I don’t really get this one. Aroma has some pine notes but is mostly earthy and caramel with a fairly strong sour streak. Very yeasty. Taste is just the opposite - tons of pine, bitter resins, and grapefruit. Medium body with decent carbonation. Finish is dry and bitter. Pretty good but strange somehow.

12oz bottle. another typical beer from sierra nevada but you know this one is quite good. well balance on the nose. the aroma of fresh hops and light malty sensation. a great full flavored beer that i could drink over and again.

Extraordinarily well balanced with a ton of fresh hops, malt, and citrus. Not the most potent IPA or the moat flashy, but this is probably SN’s second most "well rounded" beer in terms of potency (alcohol and hops) and drinkability (1st is Celebration IMO). Really nice beer.

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2012 From Bottle: Average smell, good appearance. A good IPA. Nothing unusual or different then a typical IPA Draft a year later: Much improved aroma.. smelled like someone dropped an orange in it. A very good IPA.

A hazy, reddish-copper pour with an off-white head. It has a mild pine aroma. The medium body has lively carbonation and a silky texture. The taste is lightly sweet at first, but quickly reaches a moderate bitterness that remains through the finish.

This is a good IPA, just not as good as Lagunitas Maximus. In fact, this isn’t even remotely the best beer offered by this brewery. This is probably the 4th or 5th best beer Sierra Nevada makes. All in all though, a solid IPA that does not wow me like some other offerings.
