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.

If you want more than just a standard IPA but don’t want a DIPA. What can you do? I know why not try an Extra IPA from Sierra Nevada! Great beer try it.

Bottle to English pint. Pours deep amber, decent head, moderate lacing. Aroma is earthy floral and slight citrus. Taste is well balanced between sweet malts and hop bitterness. Medium body, light carbonation, resin mouth feel. Finishes moderately bitter with notes of with notes of apricot, mango and biscuit. Driest in the end. Very good IPA.

Pours dark gold with a huge long lasting foam head. Very mild hops that slightly builds with most of the hop flavor in your month long after swallowing. A deep breath in through the nose brings more hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Bottle. Clear dark amber. Nice head, decent lacing. Nice hoppy, boozy aroma. Toffee-like scent as it warms. Strong beer, sits on the tongue.

beerandbeyond (662) - ISRAEL - JUL 25, 2014
12oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Slightly hazy amber color with a decent off white head. Hoppy nose, pines, grass, citrus, some malt and faint tropical notes. Juicy hop flavors, high bitterness, just enough malt sweetness and some marmalade. Med-full bodied, rich, long finish, pleasant carbonation. Nice.

This is a very complex and bold IPA. I feel that it is a very drinkable and it is often my go to beer. Aloha, life is to short to drink poorly crafted beer.

Citrus aroma with the typical Sierra tastes of pine and resin. What makes this different from other Sierra offerings is the malt balance and creamy texture of the finish. It still has a dry end, but it’s more complex on the palate with slight sweetness and creamy froth.

GenkiGonzo (219) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle from Cherry Bomb. Reddish amber, very small head. Aroma is hops with reisin and pine. Balanced IPA but the hops come through at the end to givea nice bitter finish.

Sdaniel90 (314) - Mexico City, MEXICO - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle, 355ml. Clear amber/orange with a fluffy offwhite head. Deep fruity hop aroma, with hints of caramel, grapefruit, pine resin, honey, spices, citrus zest and bready yeasts. Medium bodied with moderate to high carbonation and astringency. Sweet, with a subtle, but heavy bitterness, and an earthy alcohol finish. Well balanced and very drinkable.

Percy0103 (104) - MEXICO - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle, 355ml. An amber beer with a big foamy head. It has a very fresh aroma of grapefruit, citrics, green grapes and grass hops. Taste is bitter, with a lot of hops, slightly stronger at the end, but overall well-balanced. It has some carbonation and medium to high astringency. Very drinkable and perfect for summer. A very fine IPA indeed.
