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.

Amber with a lasting white head. Yeast and old fashioned malt in the aroma. Taste is sweet with some malt. Sharp bitter finish. Drank this with an evening barbecue as the shadows lengthened. Others were on the Chilean rose. I did well.

Poured from bottle into a glass. Pours with a nice pillowy, off white head. Great amber color. Great hops smell with pine in it. Great bitterness at the front that continues through your entire tasting. Slight, but enough, malt backbone to keep this from being too bitter in my opinion. After taste of citrus rind. This is a great IPA. Very drinkable and a good choice for the everyday type of beer. I think I paid $7.99/6 pack so it is a good deal too.

Pours a terrific light golden color with a bright white head. There is some real nice lacing left behind. Rather mellow immedietly following the pour. A bit of sweet caramel notes being most notable upfront. As the beer sits, it takes on more of a citrusy and pine characteristic. Overall, the aroma is rather mellow. The taste is not so mellow! Itís sweet up front with caramel notes being very noticeable. There is a bit of citrus and pine and the finish is long and lightly bitter. Itís a nice IPA.

Itís exactly what an imperial IPA should be. Pours a dark yellow with a medium sized white head. Taste is hopped up big time, citrus notes and a bit of an earthy herbal taste as well, some malts but theyíre dominated. Finishes clean and crisp with a pleasant aftertaste. Overall, an excellent beer.

From bottle to 1/2 pint glass. Pours slightly hazy yellow, decent white head. Taste is pleasant, bracing herbal bitterness, with a malty, grainy, earthy background. Good dry hoppy finish. Tasty.

Wow -- can you say "over-hopped"? This Extra IPA goes overboard with the hop aroma and flavor, nearly negating any malty tones in the beer. But is that a bad thing? Not in this case. The bitter citrus hops are like a depth charge and combined with a moderate carbonation -- itís an all-hands-on-deck experience that makes one of the best commercially-available beers. This isnít an IPA for landlubbers; its in-your-face experience and high alcohol (7.2%) will take you to Davey Jonesí Locker rather quickly if youíre not careful.

Balazs (787) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 26, 2010
Bottle. Poured with hazy, almost orange color with an off-white, lacing foam. Aroma of citrus peel, pine, flowers, some caramel. Medium body with decent carbonation, and a dry aftertaste. Alcohol well hidden. Nice, enjoyable.

(bottle) Pours reddish amber with nice head and long lasting lacing. Hoppy aroma, bitter flavor and finish. All in all an excellent IPA, one of Sierraís best brews.

Medium white head and a dark brown hue not much carbonation spotted in the glass. It might taste lively but it doesnít really look it. The aroma is a distinct lime like citrus backed by certain hops hotes. An cerain flowery aroma completely overtakes the malt. Now lets taste. Yeah the flavor copletely backs up the hop aroma blocking out any malt taste. So overly green its like a grassy garden of bitter spruce and pine. If malt is in this it is buried. These guys went a bit overboard on the piney specialty. This is uneven. Its hard to feel one wayh or the other about the palate. Too much hops makes this a frankenstien monster of an IPA. This torpedo leaves me sunken by the hops.
