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.

YigSvartka (107) - Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 23, 2014
Translucent golden orange, quickly dissipating head. Hops, citrus, pine, and malt present in the aroma. Full bodied, thick, and creamy. Initially smooth and creamy complimented with flavours of malt and caramel, but quickly cascades into a potent culmination of hops, pine, grass, and citrus. The hoppy sensation remains for a short period following each taste. Big Boy IPA.

Out of a can, very fresh almost 4 months before best by date, typical citrus piney choppy nose, must say one of the best beers I’ve had in a long time, in my top 5 iPad, awesome beer

Teran (30) - Belgrade, SERBIA - DEC 19, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2014 Extra class, darker orange clear, citrus and pine, some caramel. Sounds ordinary, but, oh angels, that is the beer for you! Bitter nectar with long-lasting aftertaste. Elite beer territory.

Fin orangegylden farge med lettfarget, greit skum. Spennende humlearoma, mye tropisk, men også godt maltpreg. I munnen kommer enda mer frem, med super fruktighet. Mye grapefrukt. Så godt balansert som en bitter IPA kan være, og med god lengde. Fresh!
