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: JUL 14, 2009 Bouteille: Parfum de houblon résineux, avec quelques accents citriques. En bouche, oranges, citrons, résine et bois se partagent le haut de l’affiche, suivi de près par la douceur d’un certain caramel / malt et de quelques épices poivrées. Le corps est moyen, un peu huileux en bouche. Chaque gorgée en provoque une autre et une autre, et une autre... Une très, très bonne bière, et très accessible - en ce sens où son amertume n’est pas trop déstabilisante. (pour ceux qui n’aiment pas le style)

Pours a very cloudy orange/amber with a thin, soapy, off-white head. Great odor, sweet sticky hops. Starts off with a slightly sweet, grapefruity hop taste, like the regular SN IPA, but holy cow the hop bitterness aftertaste will kick your face. Great bitterness, I really like the aftertaste. Even better than the regular IPA.

pours to a copper body with very little head and a sweet floral aroma to it. The body is medium with a bitter hop taste that stays with you, all in all, the pine nuts are a good taste to blend in with the hops but this is a hair bit more bitter than i like.

One of my other "go to" beers that I drink regularly. I usually have some SN PA and SN Torpedo in my fridge and go between the two. This one is obviously more bitter than the pale ale. Still has a nice fruity and hoppy flavor. I always enjoy this one.

Ungstrup (29373) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 22, 2009
Draft. An unclear golden beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of hops and grass. The flavor is sweet with ntoes of malt, hops, and grass, leading to a bone dry, bitter, and grapefruity finish.

Grovlam (4154) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2009
Bottle. Large fizzy off-white head that mostly diminished. Fair display of lacework. Amber color. Aroma of pine like, citrus, floral, herbal, mild caramel and toasted malt. Medium bodied with an average carbonation and dry texture. Moderated bitter and sweet flavor. Lingering dry bitter floral finish.

BVery (6427) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 21, 2009
BOTTLE: 96 rating??? Are you kidding? A very unbalanced IPA, some pine, hop without much malt backing, no where near an elite IPA.

natejgood (391) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - JUN 20, 2009
Pours a golden color with hints or orange. The head is a foamy, almost pure white color and the beer itself is fairly clear. The aroma is dominated by floral hops. The beer has good hop flavor, but it isn’t overpowering. It lacks the complexity of some top end IPAs, but this is a solid beer that has good flavor and is easy to drink.

Shadallion (534) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 19, 2009
This is a quintessential West-coast IPA. Smack of fresh, delicious hops, firm body, and VERY drinkable for the style. This beer won’t change your religion, but it is a welcome addition to the Sierra Nevada line-up, and certainly their second best beer after Celebration.
