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.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 18, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2009 On tap @ Tornado. Pours medium gold with a slight hint of orange, a 2 finger off white head was present. Nice nose of grapefruit, and sweet malt. Flavor was lightly fruity with some hop presence. Finish was nicely balanced between both malt and hops.....a good one!

TURDFERGUSON (3961) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 22, 2008
Draft at Tylers Durham, mid-July ’08. So this isn’t Celebration. Word. This beer had some strong piney and floral hops throughout but is nicely balanced by a heavy dose of caramel malt. A bit one-dimensional but still refreshing.

WISEGUY572 (1373) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2008
Almost a double IPA in its hoppy PNW intensity, with good sweet caramel Sierra Nevada backbone and without the double alcohol of some big bitter beers. Really enjoyable. Unmistakable SN nose, mouth feel, appearance.

TwoDudes (77) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 9, 2008
I usually don’t like Sierra seasonals, as they tend to taste very similar to their regular Pale Ale (last years Anniversary Ale, for example). This one however was suprisingly good. Rich palate with lots of nice hoppy bitterness. Much more body than I expected. However, the wow factor seemed to dissipate as the pint went on. While I thought it was great on first sip, by the end it was merely good.

Svesse (6174) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 4, 2008
(Draught at Stockholm Beer Festival, 26 Sep 2008) Amber colour with frothy, beige head. Fruity nose with fresh hops, orange, grapefruit and pine needles. Fruity, hoppy taste with grapefruit, pine needles, orange and generous doses of citrussy hops. Rather earthy finish. Possibly a bit one dimensional and on the sweet side but with a lovely hop character. Excellent beer!

Draught at SBWF08. Pours out in a clear amber colour with a small off-white foam. Floral, grapefruity and piney hop aroma with touches of caramel and peach. Medium-bodied with notes of wet grass, pine, grapefruit and apricots. Lonf bitter finish of grass, grapefruit and pine-needles.
