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 - pours a deep golden color with medium sized fluffy pure white head. Aroma has herbal, slightly citrusy hops, hints of honey, lemon zest, and grains of paradise. Flavor has dry herbal hops, hint of grapefruit and honey, touch of balancing malts, with a firmly bitter finish. Overall this is a bit more firmly bitter than their pale ale, pretty decent overall.

This is my current favorite. Coming to this beer, my standard of reference was the ordinary Sierra Nevada Pale Ale that you see everywhere. This is much hoppier and, I suspect, has a higher alcohol content than that one. I think of ales like this as "stoner" ales because of the primo aroma. Not a beer for novices. If this were your first beer, you’d probably not have a second one, because of the bitterness of the hops, but if you graduate to this from the ordinary SN Pale, you have a great surprise. I buy this by the case at Costco. I think SN Brewing is test-marketing this to us at Costcos in Northern California.

grikmok (132) - Little Rock, Arkansas, USA - MAR 6, 2010
Poured into a golden brown ale that emitted notes of herbal hop. Initial taste of astringency followed by a honey taste that ended with a slight bittersweet. Not as strong as some IPA’s I’ve had, but it’s definitely a memorable beer.

Quack-Duck (8568) - Down South, GERMANY - MAR 4, 2010
bottle from Bierzwerg. Clear golden colour, large and very creamy white head. Hoppy nose with lots of citrus fruit. Full-bodied, solid malty base complemented by lots of citrusy and pine-like hops. Hints of lemon, lemon grass and herbs, also pine-tree. Very nice indeed!

Big guys can still do it. Grapefruit and other citrus notes throughout. Really a great beer.

Torpedo is one of my favorites. Sierra Nevada is great because not only is it good beer, it is usually priced very reasonably. Their pale ale is also great

My expectations where high on this one. Aroma was bright and hoppy. Flavor was very nice, sweet and juicy. Very Hoppy, yet very drinkable. Want more!
