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.

This is my go to. With the reasonable price good taste and ok abv this is a beer i can relax with. The flavor is smooth with a little bit of a bite at the end. Alot of the other beers i have had in the same price range are much more bitter and malty than this beer is. I much rather prefer other IPAs but as i said for the price per a 6 pack its hard to complain.

This beer is considered a high gravity beer. That meaning it has a bit of a a maltier taste due to its brewing process and a higher abv than most putting it at a 7.2 which is right in the middle of high gravity ipas.

This is a beer that goes great on a warm summer night. It has a nice citrus hint to it making you feel all warm inside. It goes nicely with bbq food. I would say give it a try.
