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.

Sierra Nevada Torpedo Extra IPA pours a clear, dark orange color with a big frothy white head. The aroma is fresh, but modest; mostly caramel malt with a hint of citrus. There’s nothing modest about the flavor though. This is a beer that gives me the flavors I look for in an IPA. The flavor starts out with strong, pithy citrus notes. Resinous piney hops come through as well. Sierra Nevada uses whole hop cones to dry hop the beer, adding a fresh, grassy hop profile. The finish is very dry with a lingering bitterness.

Smooth velvety head with citrus aroma body. Flavor is mostly of woody hop flavors but the subtle citrus flavors make it pretty nice. From the leaders of the pale ale, the ipa isnt too bad either.

Amberish colour, cloudy and some creamy head. Tastes of spruce, citrus, hops and some krokan. Medium body, distinct carbonation without being too aggressive, and a lasting aftertaste of sprucy, bitter hops. Quite refreshingly carbonated and hoppy.

VertBaconStrips (2223) - Asshat, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 21, 2015
mostly spinny already, 1/3 left. Dark amber ipa with a thick light tan head that lasts and is messy. caramel, pepper bite, green, peach, not really all that fruity, bread, light candy. It’s more of a spicy ipa than anything which is nice, something close to cotton candy, pine. Very good.

Molt bona, bastant equilibrada, bons sabors a maltes I llupol sense pasarse. Pel meu gust molt mes bona que la mitica sierra nevada pale ale...mes potent I no tant subtil com la germana petita...
