COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Pungent smells of herbal pine and sweet grapefruits. The taste is crisp, spicy grapefruit hops with an herbal piney bitterness on the back end of the taste. I also get sweet somewhat bready malts in there to balance the pungent grapefruit taste from the hops. It also balances the bitterness. Its very flavorful and you can tell they use the whole cone hops to get that pungent hop flavor. Whole cone hops seem to really improve the flavor and bring the fruitiness well rounded taste out more than pellets. One of my favorite offerings from Sierra Nevada and definitely a go to IPA for me. Its easy to find, not too much money and definitely should satisfy any IPA fan.

Beautiful appearance. Aroma. Resin, sweet fruit, caramel. Taste: caramel, sweet, herbal bitterness. Properly intense. Quite full-bodied. Bit too oxidized, too much alcohol in the aftertaste. Fresh must be much better

Just doesn't make it to Europe very fresh. I've had this beer stateside and it tasted much better. I hope they build a Sierra Nevada outlet in Europe sometime soon.

Carmel flavours run through this big piney west coast style IPA. The heavy flavours mesh well and sit quite smooth on the palate. Absolute cracker of a beer. One of my favourite IPAs from one of my favourite breweries that started me on the quest to craft beer.

Gold color with big white head. Aroma and taste are hops, caramel, some fruit. Medium sweet and bitter. I thought this was pretty good but didn’t live up to the huge hype for me.

0.355 bottle.
Clear, light brown color and a huge, perfectly white head. Aroma of pale malts, citruses, a hint of yeasts, coniferous trees, and dough. Taste is a combination of hoppy, fruity, piney flavors and softer, malty and yeasty tones - mostly bitter but with significant exceptions. A medium body, an oily texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is medium long, even short for an IPA, generally follows the taste. Overall not bad, a great advantage of this IPA is that it does not have this tremendously long, astringent, hoppy aftertaste which is so typical for the style.

Butelka 355ml, a z niej bardzo przyjemny chmielowy aromat. Bia?e owoce, cytrusy, cytryna i ?ywica. Kolor jasnobursztynowy, obfita, pozostaj?ca piana, ?adnie zdobi szk?o. Delikatnie opalizuj?ce. Ze szk?a aromat równie? chmielowy, ale znacznie lepiej wyczuwalna s?odowa, karmelowa podbudowa i delikatny alkohol. W smaku s?odowe, z nut? chmielow?. Wyra?ny alkohol i wysoka goryczka, po cz??ci alkoholowa.
