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.

Wow, is this ever a good beer. Sierra Nevada really knows what they are doing in their tanks. The best American produced IPA Iíve ever had, (and they are the rage right now.) This is truly outstanding beer, and worth the hype. Marvelously complex flavor and taste profile. Excellent mouth-feel and swallow. Finishes clean with dry bitter notes, (very pleasant.) This beer goes right up to the edge but never threatens to go over. TRULY, the best IPA beer available, (and Iíve tried a bunch.) I think Iíll have another right now.

Pours yellow gold from 12 oz with thick creamy head. Floral and light citrus aroma. Hoppy, resinous taste with edgy though short lived bitter finish. Medium full bodied. Nice ipa overall, smooth and drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

500cl can poured into a Struise glass. Hazy orange with a short-lived (slightly) off white head. Aroma floral hops and bit of sweetness. Taste is juicy hops with a slightly thinner mouthfeel than typical of the style and generally a little underwhelming. I have since tried this on tap and found things to be slightly better. This is a good solid IPA but I have tried better at the same price point.

This is a stand-out IPA. I wonder how much it has changed over the years, if at all, to compete with the newer crazy hopped IPAs coming on the market these days. Just a solid IPA.

Bottle (12oz $1.40): Clear copper with white head. Not much aroma. Body is medium plus, thicker than I expected. Taste sweetness and bitterness. Grapefriut and pine.

ARH (772) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 14, 2015
12oz bottle poured into an IPA glass. The initial aroma is a bright evergreen forest that quickly ducks to a bright grapefruit and pine with a hint of fresh baked, crusty bread sneaking in underneath. Near the end thereís a warm, sweet honey and caramel note that starts to dominate. It pours a brilliant, shimmering orange with effervescence, and just a slight haze. The head is a dense soap / gelatin texture with an egg white hue that leaves a dense, heavy lace, and has great retention. The taste is a medium high bitter and sweet; well balanced. The texture is a slick, waxy quality with a soft fuzz and a medium full body. Flavors of juicy bittersweet citrus and waxy pine are first noted with caramel and honey pushing through as it warms. It finishes dry with a zip of pine and waxy grapefruit membrane. Itís zesty and potent, but not offensive, long, and astringent with an aftertaste thatíss clean, chalky and dry.

Can from lescar, sheffield. Rosy gold with bubbly white head. Aroma is surprisingly tame, a bit of resin, a bit of maple some citrus zest notes. Taste is well balanced, sweet and bitter and not too dry. Medium carbonation and body with a good oily mouthfeel. A strong and drinkable ipa, a very dangerous thing.

PapaVillum (604) - Valby, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2015
350 ml/35 cl, flaske, BB: 22/12/15, købt i Føtex på Østerbro, 10. april 2015. Rød-/guld-farvet amerikansk IPA med fin hvid tætskummende skumkrone på ungefär 4 cm, som svinder til et par cm efter en halv snes minutter. Kraftig og bitter humlearoma af gran og maltnuancer af brød. Fjerne og svage noter af citrus. Altovervejende humlet. Smagen er let sød, men hovedsageligt præget af en kraftig bitterhed, særligt i afslutningen. Tør mundfølelse og dog frisk og tørstslukkende. Kroppen er middel fyldig med en frisk karbonering på medium niveau. Konsistensen er glat/olieret, og afslutningen er kort og næsten besk i sit udtryk. Meget velsmagende IPA, men nok for humlet og tør for nybegyndere. Torpedoen er dog et kvalificeret valg, når man vil have en humlet tørstslukker.
