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.

Enh, its not bad, dont get me wrong. Its just not as good as I expected, from what I have had, and the growing popularity of this brewery. It pours a dark golden\orange colour with a white head of medium retention. The aroma is kind of a draw back, cardboard and a stale sort of grapefruit smell, which isnt bad, but then there is this weird cheddar cheese sort of smell that kills it. The flavour is decent, standard, malty, hoppy, flavours found in most decent IPA, but really nothing unique or special. Not saying its bad, its just not that great.

Poured from a bottle into a goblet. Had a slightly cloudy copper color with a 1-finger foamy white head. The aroma is primarily a citrusy hop character. The balance of the taste is skewed decidedly toward a hoppy bitterness, but not too much since the beer has a very nice, crisp mouthfeel.

Bottle. The smell of hops, very fruity, some bread. The small white creamy-foamy head has a very long duration, the cloudy body is orange. The taste is very bitter, a lot of hops, light fruity. The body is light to medium strong and creamy with a soft carbonation.

Part of the sampler tray at the brewery. Tought to judge based on two ounces, but quite enjoyed this one. My favourite of the bunch

This beer is better near room temperature rather than cold. I love this beer, one of my favorites; the nose and flavor cannot be appreciated when this brew is cold. A nice floral, hoppy, and citrus aroma with an intense hoppy pine resin flavor-followed by a very nice bitterness on the end. mouth feel is very nice of light carbonation.... Overall, this beer is amazing...really.

jfb (5991) - Freising, GERMANY - AUG 26, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2010 (bottle) pours a clear amber colour with a tall dense off-white head. aroma of resin, citrus fruits and mango, with a hint of bubblegum, sweet spices, caramel and bread, nicely balanced, could be hoppier though. flavour is lots of resin and a touch of oranges, with light toasted malts and a caramelly bitter finish. medium-bodied with smooth carbonation.

Aroma is lightly floral with unripened mango. Flavor is what I imagine rusty cardboard would be if that was possible. Deep minerals and a bone dry hard bitter finish define this brew. Mouthfeel is refreshing and medium bodied. Below average effort for a classic brewery. Thanks Sierra Nevada. 2010 12oz.

Die_Kapusta (191) - Malm, SWEDEN - AUG 24, 2010
This beer has a really beautiful amber color and big cream colored head. Aroma of pine, orange, bread, caramel, herbs and some sweet floral notes. Quite dry taste. A lot of pine and resin but also citrus flavours like grapefruit, bergamot and clementine. Finishes hoppy and floral. A real solid IPA with a little extra.

Wow this is good. I love SNPA, but the added hop and alcohol really puts this on top. My favorite IPA.
