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.

Pours clear amber with big creamy head. Aroma is heavy grapefruit, pine, bread and peach. Nice balance between malty and hoppy. Rather dry finish with long aftertaste. Balanced, nice.

Bottle. Pours a deep amber colour with a slightly off white head. Head lasts well throughout. Aroma is malty and hoppy with hints of caramel. Taste is big hops with a lovely bitter aftertaste.

Such lovely flavours and depth - but I only wish it wasn’t so overwhelmed by the boozy finish. Good but too much. 7/10.

Ein eher mildes IPA aber rundem Geschmack. Der Abgang ist etwas herb, aber für ein IPA normal.

Torpedo jest królem Ip jak lew jest królem dżungli. Zdecydowanie bardziej lubiana przeze mnie słodsza odsłona IPA. Może to wzorzec klasy zero???

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
