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.

UPDATED: JUN 15, 2010 OK, Iím a rookie and Iíve tried only two IPAs: Dogfish Head 60 Minute and Sierra Nevada Torpedo. After drinking this at least I can pick out the hop flavors when I try other beers. IPAs are supposed to be bitter and that it is; but aside from bitter I though the Sierra Nevada was more carbonated had stronger flavors of pine, cedar, and citrus. I liked it better. If youíre into IPAs then I would suggest trying it. However, this style is not for me.

Bottle. Pours beautiful amber. Head is quite hard and creamy. Lotīs of lacing on the glass. Aroma is fantastic from apricot, hops, toffee, grass, candy and some nuts. Flavor is also fantastic. Apricot hops, marmalade, nuts and grass. Palate is smooth and quite easy. Aftertaste is medium long. Little bitter and sweet.

The nose on this IPA was dreamy for me, but thatís cause Iím not a hop head. Aroma was full of malt: biscuit, cookie, toasted bread. What a shock to then taste such a bitter beer....well, not such a shock given that it is an IPA. It was very bitter at first, although some sweetness came with the finish. It was a crisp, spruce/pine type hoppiness. Palate was smooth and nicely carbonated. Picture perfect.

SamsCellar (24) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUN 6, 2010
I liked this Extra IPA, pouring an amber brown with a hoppy, robust head that laced the glass. Smells of malty pine. Taste: lightly toasted malt front side with a citrusy-hop backside. Good carbonation. Nicely done.

I tried this beer on May 28, 2010 at "The Beerbistro" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a hazy golden orange with a thick white rocky cap that lasted throughout. The aroma was weak sweet malt, pine, and an abundance of citrusy hops. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour was definitely hoppy, a nice balance between the grapefruity hops and the slightly sweet malt.
