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.

Pours a medium bodied amber with a semi frothy head. Sweet and juicy aromas of hops. mmmmmm. Flavors of sweet citrusy hops. The flavor is just about on the same level as the aromas. Palate is just above average having a slightly resinous feel. Lovely beer all around.

12 oz bottle, thanks to LooseCannon. Clear amber with a nice eggshell head. Citrus nose of white grapefruit and tangerine. Somewhat herbal but certainly citrus bitter flavors, caramel and a touch of earth. Dry finish, great lace rings. Excellent.

Bottle poured a clear tarnished copper with a lasting amber head. Aromas of pine, grapefruit, orange zest and light carmel. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a lightly dry finish. Flavors of carmel, orange, pine and light grapefruit with a smooth lightly dry lingering bitter finish.

Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale is more of what I like about IPA. I pulled this instead of the usual Terrapin Rye Pale Ale (athens, ga) thinking it would be as consistently good like their other stuff. Not so much so this time. Too sweet and syrupy. Lots of alcohol, yummy.

Very good. I had it with a Troegs Nugget Nectar which is my favorite and it holds up pretty well. Nice aroma and good hop flavor. Nicely bitter and dry finish.

Pours copper coloured. sweet floral aroma with hints of grass. Full hoppy taste with pine. Finish is bold and dry. Has that ’Sierra Nevada’ taste...which is good.

Huge, even yellow head, leaving textbook lace over clear copper-amber beer. Deep maltcake with hopsyrup nose; extremely seducive. C-hops to the fore. Very bitter onset, then more aroma hops, but finishing pretty metallic all the same. Bit of fruity lemonflavour, but not much else. Short sharpish MF, quite carbonated. Hops go on & on... Seriously Indian pale ale. Big thanks to DavidA!

A nice golden color with white head. Mild hops and faint malt on the aroma. Very very nice hop body with a mild malt balance and a bitter aftertaste.

quite enjoyable, probably their best ipa offering that i have had, at least out of a bottle. the wet hop ales, so far, have been a let down from the bottle. i find it interesting to see SN pushing out so many more beers as of late. not that i am complaining or anything.

12oz bottle. Pours a clear orange with a tan head and nice lacing. Nose is of grass and citrus hops. Taste has the same grass and citrus hops with bready malt. Mouthfeel is medium with resinous texture and bitter finish. Good carbonation.
