From the brewery ... Sierra Nevada Torpedo Ale is a big American IPA; bold, assertive and full of flavor and aromas highlighting the complex citrus, pine and herbal character of whole-cone American hops.

Love Sierra Nevada Pale Ale...decided to give this one a try. Wasn't a big fan. I traditionally love the overtly "hoppy" taste but this had a sharpness to it that didn't cooperate with my tastebuds. Critiqued it before checking its review on here and I was shocked with how high it was rated. Decent, but not an instant favorite.

Great overall IPA, but Celebration Ale has a bit more character. This is a good IPA for the hop forward characteristics

It's among my favorite of the high-hop-content American IPAs at 65 IBUs with some unique ingredients and inventive hopping techniques. It pours a deep amber with soapy head and resilient lacing. The aroma is that familiar hallmark of American West Coast IPAs: fresh Magnum bittering hops with their pungent citrus, juniper, and grassy notes and typical floral charm. Take a sip and the smokey-sweet malt coats your mouth while the Citra hops - the sour diesel of hops - settle on your breath for the long haul. The balance is perfect. To me this is one of the best strong IPAs by one of the best - one of the pioneers - of the American pale ale genre.
