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.

jeremyh70 (882) - Missouri, USA - APR 25, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2013 2013 bottle into a tulip glass A: A nice looking clear bright amber with a creamy two fingers of white head with good retention and good lacing. Classic looking beer. S: Citrus and light fruit aromas that are pleasant with a hint of grass and caramel sweetness. T: Nice caramel sweetness first followed by some citrus fruit flavors and a moderate piney bitterness that fades into a citrus pith. Bitterness lingers a bit and hints at being astringent but never succeeds, which is nice. Finishes semi dry with only a touch of bitter remaining. M: Mouthfeel falls somewhere between crisp and creamy with a medium/full body and perfect medium/high carbonation for the style that helps accentuate the mouthfeel and scrubs just enough away to leave a taste in your mouth that makes you want to take another drink. O: There’s a reason Sierra Nevada is a pioneer of craft beer, they know how to make it exceptionally well. Easy drinking and deliciously well rounded. ---Jeremy H

Torpedo jest królem Ip jak lew jest królem dżungli. Zdecydowanie bardziej lubiana przeze mnie słodsza odsłona IPA. Może to wzorzec klasy zero???

ziobarba2000 (21) - Roma, ITALY - JUL 27, 2015
Bottiglia da 0,33. Birra dal colore ambrato e e dalla schiuma abbondante e persistente. Carbonatura intensa. Forte gusto agro/amaro con intensa luppolatura e sentori di melone. Finale estremamente secco. IPA molto "particolare". Consiglio 7/10

Bottle. Balanced aroma of malt, citrus and herbs. Lovely watermelon and tropical fruits. Long, but also comfortable bitterness. Big, great IPA.

mrjez (67) - Osaka, JAPAN - JUL 22, 2015
L: a nice clear darkish amber with an off-white head and plenty of lacing. S: I’m not getting any distinct smell, more a flattened mix of pine and citrus. A tad musty. T: more malty than I’d expected, some dark fruits mixed with citrus somehow, hoppy bitterness at the end. Very complex, some amber or barleywine characteristics which are welcome. F: has a refreshing yet satisfyingly sweet and malty character. Not sure whether to neck or sip! Dry at the end, I like the flavours but would love them to whack my palate a bit more. O: I applaud this for surprising me. Not just another IPA, it takes some interesting turns. Would love another.

Intense hoppy aftertaste, palate a little frothy, slightly oily. A sharp and dry drink, immediately bitter.
