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. Looks and smell like an IPA. Love the texture. Creamy with medium carbonation. Very pleasant. Taste is hoppy, of course with a hint of sweetness on the front end. I can’t find anything to not like about this beer. It is not a complex beer but it is full of flavor. Very drinkable. Another solid offering from S.N.

It’s not perfect... but it might as well be. Great dry hop smell and taste. Wonderful IPA. I’m not always a fan of Sierra Nevada but they have done well with this one. Great IPA.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 4, 2009
Bottle. Pours clear orange gold, off white head. Aroma is hoppy and sweet; fuzzy kiwi, tangerine, caramel, grass. Flavor is, S.O.S. hoppy bitter. I love it! It’s crisp and non-syrupy. This might be the most hoppy bitter non-offensive beer that I’ve ever tasted. Maybe not, but we’ll just go with that for now. This is good stuff if you heart hops!

Another fairly standard IPA with a twist. This one has stronger grapefruit flavorings than one might expect, and it makes it very easy to drink. Probably the easiest IPA to drink that I have ever had to be honest. Smell is very hoppy, so if you like that combined with a twinge of fruit flavor, this beer is for you.

12oz. Resin! Smells like shoving your face into a bucket of fresh hops. Slight malt aroma comes through. Totally balanced drinking! The hops are strong in flavor and aroma but the bitterness is soft and compliments the malt. Yay beer!

patrickfannon (1242) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2009
Bottle. 12oz. Pours copperish amber with a half-finger, subtly off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit, orange, dry hops, yeast, and traces of fresh wheat. Medium, easy-going body with a nice, slightly heavy mouthfeel. Great finish; powerful and warming. Great IPA from Sierra Nevada.

scooterbub (920) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - NOV 30, 2009
Bottle. Pours a golden amber with a large, foamy beige head that slowly fades. Taste is of hops, pine, grapefruit, malt, and some caramel. Is a little sweet. Similar aroma. Has a rather bitter finish that lasts a while. A pretty good IPA, but not their best one.

jsquire (3757) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - NOV 30, 2009
Amber color out of the bottle with a foamy white head. Nice hoppy nose. Sharp piney hop flavor with some grapefruit rind and caramel sweetness. Some alcohol heat. Nice IPA.

radioseer (299) - Virginia, USA - NOV 30, 2009
UPDATED: DEC 24, 2009 (12 ounce bottle - pint glass) Pours a amber orange color. Has a somewhat thick head that leaves to good lacing. Heavy amount of hops. The hoppy taste is also citrusy. It is all balanced with a light caramel malt character. Mouthfeel has an oily texture and a soft combination.
