cmonster (1000) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 1, 2011
Bottle served in a tulip. Pours typical SN. Dark orange-amber with a medium off-white rocky top. Good retention and decent lacing. Big grass and resin nose. Solid malt, pine, and soft fruit as well. Light bitter-sweet flavor. Medium body, creamy green and bready malt palate, and a resiny bitter finish. Lots of earth with this IPA.

bkurtz (1075) - MOROCCO - DEC 31, 2010
UPDATED: APR 5, 2015 Poured a golden/amber with a soft head. Great spice aromas and a bitterness on the palate straight away followed by a nice malt. Its all there, this is why different beer styles exist. Well made.

BeerMePodcast (96) - Palm Desert, California, USA - DEC 29, 2010
Great head with a good retention. Pine and citrus aroma with Sierras hop stamp all over it. Same in the taste with a solid bitter finish. An incredibly drinkable beer.

rayl101 (163) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - DEC 27, 2010
Love this IPA! Pours a deep gold with a creamy white head that hangs around. Citrus, piney aroma with no maltiness coming through. Flavor is very hoppy, but very smooth, and easy to drink with a little malt character coming through.

thicksuds (449) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 23, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2012 Excellent IPA, pretty much perfect IMO, nice hops, but a great malt balance and a sweet quality to it that makes it very easy to drink, and smooth tasting. A well put together IPA that is classic Sierra Nevada.

dpjuart (1112) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 22, 2010
Pours orange/ red with 1/2 finger off white head. Sweet caramel and pine with a touch citrus in the nose. Big, dry bitter overtakes sweet, caramel backbone, piny and earthy. Good mouthfeel. Another solid offering.

zdk (1912) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 19, 2010
bottle: reddish copper pour with off-white head. Arouma is pine and minerals. Sweet caramel malts, touch of sugar candies. Resinous piney hops, and thick herbaceous notes. Smooth almost chewy thick body with a hint of solventy pinesol. Bitter sticks to the tongue but fades after a few moments revealing some longer lasting astringency. Tasty. Solid IPA.

Sierra Nevada Torpedo Extra IPA has a thin, off-white, creamy head and a cloudy orange appearance, with medium carbonation. The aroma is of sharp, piney hops, and the taste is of an overriding hoppiness, with some citrus and oiliness. Mouth-feel is moderately heavy, and Sierra Nevada Torpedo Extra IPA finishes delicious and satisfying. I highly recommend this beauty! RJT
