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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Color: Light caramel, very sticky head
Smell: light sweet citrus tangerine/grapefruit
Taste: Nice slightly thicker taste than most light beers. Nice light citrus flavor followed by the light bitterness of hops, leaves a fresh touch of the citrus in mouth.
Very good tasting beer without being too much, very nice to drink.

Had this on a few occasions now, tried again side by side with Ranger IPA over the weekend. Reviewing from notes.

A - Hazy copper body with a nicely developed lace ring that lasts long into the pint.

S - Hoppy and herbal, a slight tinge of citrus.

T - Falls mostly in the hoppy range, but there is enough of a variety to keep it interesting. I like that this is hops front and center from beginning to end, makes for a purity in beer I admire in German counterparts.

M - Tastes crisp and fresh, finish is slightly bitter but not too drying. Smooth enough to have a few paired with a meal.

O - Real quality in this one especially considering the quantities in which its produced. If a buddy is at the supermarket and calls asking "what should I bring?", this is probably one of the best to be found in the grocers case...

Appearance - Hazy amber, off-white head.

Aroma - Passion fruit and conifer.

Mouthfeel - Relatively soft carbonation for an IPA. Balanced finish.

Very clean IPA. I really enjoyed this one.
