COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle. Fruity, malty aroma... drying mouthfeel and... omigod... how many IBU’s has this bad boy got? Maybe too bitter for me right now.

bottle pour to shaker. orangish gold colored with a nice rocky off-white head. Head disappears rather quickly but that may be due to the greasy tacos i was eating. Yum! Quite a bit of lacing. Smell of fresh citrusy scents. Taste on the other hand was heavy resin with a touch of pine. Strong bitter aftertaste that tingles the back of the tongue. Haven’t had a SN pale ale in 5 yrs but if memory serves me right this is the big brother of said pale ale. Delicious.

Bottle: Deep golden, a bit unclear, big rocky off-white head with a fine lacework; rather dry hoppy nose with underlying fruits (grapefruits, peaches), medium bodied, soft, solid bitter-sweet flavour; tart grapefruits in the dry bitter-malty finish with a very long hoppy "tail". Yes, they can.....

Big hoppy aroma with citrus and floral tones. Pours a nice bronze with a big head and plenty of carbonation. Hope flavor is big and tasty. Finish is just a bit dry.

fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - FEB 18, 2010
bottle, pours light amber with a medium light tan head. Aroma is full of cascade and floral notes. Flavor is very rich in the malt department, some hay and crisp and sharp pine notes of bitterness end dry and begging for another sip. Very nice.

AlbertC (276) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 18, 2010
Bottle. Small head that lasts. Slightly haze copper colour. Aroma is malts, citrus, pine and cream. Taste is well balanced with taste of mals and citrus and long lasting bitterness with almost toffee-cream like character. Very nice indeed

A nearly perfectly executed Extra IPA. Intense floral aroma and spicy pine flavors this beer is an amazing vehicle for hops. Another great beer from Sierra Nevada!

In Bottiglia. Buonissima Ipa, dal profumo intenso e molto luppolata. Una conferma di Sierra Nevada.

Number 2 in my S.N. tasting.Bottle pour.Dark orange colored with a good white head.Nose is piney hops,little cut grass,some orangey grapefruit smell with just a hint of malt.Taste was the same as the nose a little more of the piney citrus flavors then the grapefruit/lemon bitterness.Thin but nicely carbonated.Not bad.
