3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an orangey golden brown with plentiful tan head. Grassy vegetal aromas up front, with citrus peel and light caramel. Taste starts with substantial bitter herbal and earthy hops rounding out with a lightly sweet creaminess in the middle and a mildy tart citrus and spicy/floral finish. Medium to full body with paradoxically light texture, fine carbonation, and a dry finish. A lot drier and more elegant than other big IPAs I’ve had, which tend to be a lot more syrupy and sticky; not that that’s necessarily a bad thing but not always what you want. An interesting and well executed departure from the norm, my only beef is the aroma is fairly plain and subdued.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
[355ml bottle, Appellation Wines Edinburgh] ‘A big American IPA’ – is there any other kind? Pours with a long-lasting high foamy head, hazy deep orange colour, opaque, silty. Aromas are lovely – resinous piney smells drifting upwards, hop forward. Taste is amazing, sweet hops, pine and alcohol – more piney than citrus for me. A dry aftertaste with a lingering hoppiness on the palate. Feels very strong, certainly drinks to it’s par of 7.2%, yet with that tremendous drinkability. Truly outstanding.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle in a shaker. Tastes a lot like the Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, but a little hoppier, a little darker in color, and a little better.

This is a pretty solid IPA. I’m going out on a limb here and calling it a good session beer despite the high ABV. It has a good amount of hops and isn’t ridiculously filling. Hoppy, floral flavor, light in appearance, and goes down smooth.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Enjoyed this beer from a tall glass while on vacation in OBX. The beer had a semi-cloudy rich amber-copper color with a large foamy and bubbly white head that had a lot of retention and modest cling. The beer had a strong grassy-grainy hops aroma with touches of citrus and pine, and some malt too. Its taste was just a touch sweet, but mostly a heavy bitter grainy taste. It was a dry, medium-bodied beer with average carbonation and very heavy on the palate.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2011 Appearance: Poured a clear golden amber with a 1 finger white head. Excellent lacing throughout.
Smell: Mild citrus with a hint of pine.
Taste: Nice hoppy bitterness with a nice mix of citrus and pine. Nice bitter finish.
Mouthfeel: Light-to-Medium bodied. Fairly dry finish.
Drinkability: Very good drinkability, especially with the higher alcohol content. You could easily knock back several of these.
Overall: Another very solid offering from Sierra Nevada. I’ll definitely be giving Torpedo Extra IPA another shot down the road.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Copper body, white head. Big amount of hops with piney and citrus notes. Some bready malt. Bitterness is little too much on the harsh side. Enjoyable, but I was waiting for much more..
