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.

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 (62) - 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.

Pours clear amber red with this bubbly head. Aroma of citrus. And hoppy palate of orange and tangerine.

0.33 l bottle from Alko. Amber colour, nice head. Quite bitter taste with citrus like aftertaste all this from hops. Hides nicely the hefty amount of alcohol. Goes well with salty fish, herring, for example.
