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.

Super rich glowing amber color with a sparkling carbonation. Nice and creamy off white head. Fresh aroma loaded with hops, lots of grapefruit and pine. Flavor is mild malty with a great hoppiness giving a wll balanced citrus freshness. Nice and smooth mouthfeel.

[2981-20100627] Tap. Fresh young grass concrete aroma has a hint of celery. Clear, amber orange body with a medium-lasting creamy off-white head and some lacing. Bitter pine cone grass hops flavour is well-balanced. Medium body is smooth in its bitterness. Nice, does not feel like 7%, a great bitter.

2010-06-27. Crisp orange body with a creamy beige head that fades with some lace. 3+ Hoppy aroma is fairly green and resiny. 7+ Flavour has a good amount of bitterness, modest hoppy character, green leafy resin, lacks complexity but it is enjoyable. Smooth medium body. 3+ Simple but pretty solid. Enjoyable. Bottle at Belmont Station, Portland.

Bottle. I wanted to like this beer. I really, really did. I enjoy IPAs and generally hoppy beers, but I guess this one was just too much for me. The bitterness wasnít so bad, but after I got past that, I felt like I was drinking a pine cone. I really enjoy Sierra Nevadaís regular pale ale, but I just feel like this is too much.

Bought a six pack for less than ten dollars; this delicious beer was worth every penny. Great color and aroma, much easier to drink than the DIPAs Iíve been having of late. The hop aromas settled into a gentle bitterness on the tongue. Great beer; truly awesome value.

The economy is terrible. Weíre in the middle of two disastrous wars. Oil is spilling all over the Gulf of Mexico. The government is inept. Sarah Palinís popularity scares me. But, I can buy a six pack of Torpedo Extra IPA at the supermarket for $8.00. Things arenít all bad.

12oz bottle. Thick, creamy head and very hoppy in scent. An extra-hoppy IPA thatís on the bitter side, even for an IPA. Good, hoppy IPA.

Moment: a relaxing Sunday afternoon in June... Glassware: Howardís Pub pint... Appearance: burnt orange body; thick, crunchy white head that holds well as the glass drains--attractive lacing... Aroma: spruce and pine--ALL Pacific scents are imported in this as expected--and its intensity preceeds the heightened hops... Palate: thick, big and full-bodied but deceptively smooth to the sip--the magic is its balance of boldness and drinkability... Taste: sweetness of caramel with the bitterness of Cascade hops--pleasantly palatable and robust with a dryness that encourages a second glass... Overall: Sweet and tart--a killer combination that grows in its pleasure, with a warming effect that does not put its ABV on trial..could see this sneaking up on me at a get-together or a slow evening...

Love this beer. Boom. Hops, start to finish but without the usual level of bitterness. Very flowery aroma with a smooth crisp finish. This is my favorite Sierra Nevada so far, really well put together, congrats.
