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 murky copper with a well retaining khaki head into a tulip. Resiny, piney hops dominate the aroma, light bready malts, grapefruit, lemon. Again, quite a resiny/piney hop flavor profile. Slight caramelized sugar taste with grapefruit, balanced by bready malts. Slick mouthfeel with medium body and a medium level of carbonation. Very refreshing and well balanced IPA and my favorite of Sierra Nevada’s main line. Glad to have several IPAs recently that actually stand out a bit. All the hop juice was starting to blend together.

Croff (164) - Ostra Sonnarslov, SWEDEN - FEB 8, 2010
Pours a cloudy orange amber. Nice fluffy long lasting head that slowly fades to lace. Grapefruit hops and caramel aroma. Medium carbonation. Grass citrus flavor. A bit creamy on the tongue then a bite. Citrus pine woody dry finish with a oily feel on the lips. Noticeable alcohol throughout. It is a good brew, but certainly nothing special. I doubt if I would have another.

degbert (1485) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 7, 2010
From a bottle. Poured with an amazing, moussy head that just will NOT go away, and leaves scattered lace on the glass. Color is a deep, rich gold-amber. Aroma is intense citrus with something faintly floral -- lilac or peony. Flavor is surprisingly balanced for something this intensely hoppy; I can still taste the toast of the malt through the drying bitterness. Great beer.

EKGoldings (617) - Radford, Virginia, USA - FEB 7, 2010
Bottle. This is an excellent lighter style IPA .. well, lighter compared to some of the competition, DIPA excepted of course. I really like the balance between sweet malt, bitterness and aroma. Think SNPA’s big brother. Very tasty, I’ll be getting more.

jazz88 (2628) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 5, 2010
Tap (rating from notes). Dark golden brown with an off-white head. A nice citrus and sweet hop aroma. Smooth and creamy with a dry bitter hop finish. Mildly grassy.

Chalsk (1097) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - FEB 5, 2010
Hoppy, grapefruit aroma. Pours an amber-red haze. The beer is lively. Thin head with some lacing. Creamy malty up front and then bitter and sweet on the back end. The malt and hops are well balanced. The bitters linger a bit. A very good IPA, but have had a few better - 90 Minute and Victory Hopdevil off the top of my head.

redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - FEB 3, 2010
Piney citrus hops on the nose with a grassy earthiness. Pours a pale amber with a thin white head. Very nice hop forward ipa, citrus notes with pine resin with a solid malt backbone. Refreshing IPA after a long night of work!

portableparty (2248) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - FEB 3, 2010
12 oz. bottle poured into snifter. Aroma is earthy hoppy grapfurity. Appearance is ruby red orange with white frothy head and soild lacing. Taste has grapfurity to earthy tones maybe faint honey which finishes dry. Palate slick watery hoppy feel with dry bitter notes. I really enjoy this beer good solid IPA for under $9.00 a six pack.

Silphium (3190) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 3, 2010
Slightly hazy medium orange-brown body, medium dissipating to thin, clumping off-white head. Citrusy hops nose with some pine and grass. Firm bitter, catty, resinous hops body with citrus peel and a toasty malt backbone. Hops and malt interplay create a citrusy sweetness cusped by the bitter, herbal finish. There’s nothing steroidal about this beer; it’s just a crisp, clean, relatively dry IPA.

Beer has a nice aroma that seems to fade quickly after the beer is opened. Aroma is citrusy. Beer poors slightly hazy and golden. White head disipates quickly. Taste has a sharp bitterness of citrus but it is quickly calmed by the malt which does not have a strong presence. The Palate is nice but a bit of a strange aftertaste remains. Overall the beer is a nice IPA which is enjoyable to drink
