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.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Samuel Adams pint glass. Purchased at Wakefield Liquors in Wakefield, RI.

A- Molasses in color, slightly hazy body with a 2" head and high retention that reduces to a sticky white lacing. Inviting.

S- Citrus, pine, floral notes. Refreshing to smell.

T- Bitter hoppiness, citrusy, and floral. Standard IPA flavor in my opinion.

M- Medium carbonation, medium body. Crisp

Overall, a tasty, well rounded IPA. Must try for any hop-head.

A: Amber in color that is slightly hazy. It poured out with two fingers of off-white head. Nice, sticky lacing.

S: Piney, citrusy, floral.

T: Similar to the nose. Just a hint of pineapple. Nice, crisp, bitter hops. Just enough malt to balance the bitterness but not making it sickly sweet.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation. Crisp and refreshing. Good as a session beer.

O: This is an amazing beer for the price point. In my area, it is about $1 per 12 oz. bottle. The other competitors in that price range are Harpoon IPA and RedHook Longhammer IPA and this blows them out of the water. This is truly a steal as it is a big tasting IPA that is better than most of the beers that are double the price.
