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.

Pouring a clear amber that leans towards brown, Torpedo is capped with two inches of fluffy white head that provides plenty of lacing. Rich, pine resin hop aromas dominate with a just a touch of biscuity malt poking through. Citrus and pine resin hop flavors blast the palate before fading into a delectable level of bitterness meets a caramel and biscuity malt backbone. This amazingly balanced IPA is medium bodied and slightly sticky. A great IPA from folks that know a thing or two about hops!

Cheers!
