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.

16 oz can poured in plastic pint glass.

A - clear amber with beige head.Exceptional head for style left a long-lasting surface coating.

S - piney and citrusy (grapefruit) hops with subtle herbal notes and caramel malt in about a 65/35 ratio (hops/malt).

T - Predominately hoppy with a strong hop finish. Nice level of bitterness given strong hop content. {SN says IBU = 65}.

M - Medium body with lively carbonation. Crisp

O: excellent American IPA that fairs fine in a can.

Pours golden into snifter with nice thick head that lingers well in glass.

Smell is tangerine, grapefruit, pine and musty oranges.

Taste is sweet with lots of citrus (tangerine) midway and a nice musty bitterness in the finish.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied. Dry.

Overall this is an excellent IPA. Will always be a go-to beer for me.
