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.

Bottle. Poured a deep autumn orange body with thin head. Aroma is citrus hops and some bread. Flavor has a sharp bitterness, citrus - lemon, and a bready earthy taste, lightly sweet. This is dangerously smooth.

BMan1113VR (7898) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 25, 2009
Bottle shared with ilovedarkbeer. Pours with a nice and large off-white head and a copper penny hued body. Aroma is hoppy, herbal and a bit piny. A lot of C-hops. Caramel sweetness too. Taste is malty and a decent amount of pine hops. Water like mouthfeel with restrained carbonation. I think I might like the taste of celebration better. I was looking for a new session beer with this, and I am not sure I found it.

Poured amber with a two finger head. The aroma was hoppy with a citrus background. The flavor was dominant hoppy with citrus, pine and earthy notes, and a prominent bitterness that blended well with the malty backbone. A very solid and well balanced IPA that is enjoyable.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - FEB 25, 2009
Bottle. Clear red-orange with small tight tan head. Incredibly bright hoped-up nose smells like pure hop juice and surprisingly few esters. Carbonation level is pretty high. The flavors actually seem subdued because the body is accessible and easy with little else getting in the way of the herbal hop character. No chewiness. Alcohol undetectable. Seriously nice hop juice. "SNPA on steroids" indeed!

Bottle thanks to BMan1113VR. Pours a liquid copper color with a lacy bone colored head. Nose is resin and hop oil, dry ash, dusty. Taste is bread, dry malt, slightly roasted, Carbonated mouthfeel that is slightly sticky, and the finish is rather long

heemer77 (5159) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - FEB 24, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2009 Deep bronze gold colored body with a foamy offwhite head. The aroma has some rich malt and a little bit of oranges. There is also some almonds and bread crust. The taste has some fairly strong almond and grapefruit. There is also some bitter bread crust. A little thick, but goes down easy. A little better after a few samples.

Botnik (142) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 24, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2009 Careful what you ask for. What else would you expect from SN when they add the word Extra to IPA? Yes, itís over the top, but it settles out to a smooth dry finish. I still prefer Celebration.

bigrond (1499) - factoryville, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 24, 2009
This beer is very good. But I have to say, itís not very balanced. Over-top-hops, canít dent that. Finishes very dry, which is good. ABV is very good and it does go down real smooth. A good show from Serria Nevada but there best beer is still Celebration.

12 oz bottle. Clear topaz with a pillowy bone head and lacy splotches. Nose is dough, oregano, basil and orange. Soft and creamy with sharp pricks of carb. Taste is nectarine, pine, lemon oil and orange peel. Nice balance of fruit and bitterness with some pepper in the finish.
