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.

12 oz. bottle from Ludlow Wines. Pours a somewhat cloudy orange-amber that is more gold at the bottom and more amber up high. Big off-white head that leaves some nice lacing behind. Hoppy aroma, with floral notes, pine, citrus, and caramel malt. Bitter hop taste with notes of grapefruit and orange citrus, pine, caramel malts, and a little soapiness. Bold and bitter with a bitter hop aftertaste. Medium bodied with average carbonation. This one gets even hoppier and more bitter as it goes down. Long aftertaste. Strong IPA.

chickenflea (349) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2009
12-oz bottle. Looks and smell like an IPA. Love the texture. Creamy with medium carbonation. Very pleasant. Taste is hoppy, of course with a hint of sweetness on the front end. I canít find anything to not like about this beer. It is not a complex beer but it is full of flavor. Very drinkable. Another solid offering from S.N.

Itís not perfect... but it might as well be. Great dry hop smell and taste. Wonderful IPA. Iím not always a fan of Sierra Nevada but they have done well with this one. Great IPA.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 4, 2009
Bottle. Pours clear orange gold, off white head. Aroma is hoppy and sweet; fuzzy kiwi, tangerine, caramel, grass. Flavor is, S.O.S. hoppy bitter. I love it! Itís crisp and non-syrupy. This might be the most hoppy bitter non-offensive beer that Iíve ever tasted. Maybe not, but weíll just go with that for now. This is good stuff if you heart hops!

Another fairly standard IPA with a twist. This one has stronger grapefruit flavorings than one might expect, and it makes it very easy to drink. Probably the easiest IPA to drink that I have ever had to be honest. Smell is very hoppy, so if you like that combined with a twinge of fruit flavor, this beer is for you.

12oz. Resin! Smells like shoving your face into a bucket of fresh hops. Slight malt aroma comes through. Totally balanced drinking! The hops are strong in flavor and aroma but the bitterness is soft and compliments the malt. Yay beer!

patrickfannon (1241) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2009
Bottle. 12oz. Pours copperish amber with a half-finger, subtly off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit, orange, dry hops, yeast, and traces of fresh wheat. Medium, easy-going body with a nice, slightly heavy mouthfeel. Great finish; powerful and warming. Great IPA from Sierra Nevada.

12 oz bottle pours gold/amber, with soft head, nice lace. aroma is sweet citrus and some pine. Smooth texture , med. body, feels like a cream ale, rich hops and not to heavy on malt, nice dry hop bitterness on finish. Nice I.P.A

scooterbub (888) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - NOV 30, 2009
Bottle. Pours a golden amber with a large, foamy beige head that slowly fades. Taste is of hops, pine, grapefruit, malt, and some caramel. Is a little sweet. Similar aroma. Has a rather bitter finish that lasts a while. A pretty good IPA, but not their best one.
