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.

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass.

Medium amber color, little head.

Torpedo is always a pleasure to drink with a delicious piney and citrusy taste. GREAT balance of fruity essence with hoppy flavors. In my opinion it’s really the that balance that sets it apart from your everyday IPAs as it has strong, but not overly one-sided flavor.

Another beer that goes great with cake.

Big nose, very pungent hop aromas, kind of pot-like. Reminds me just a touch of the normal Sierra Nevada pale ale nose, but has much more of a bite. Flavor is very much in-line with the aromas... a bong-water bitterness at the beginning of the swallow, medium body in the middle, and a nice piney bitterness left in the back of the mouth at the very end.

“Sierra Nevada Torpedo is a big American IPA; bold, assertive, and full of flavor highlighting the complex citrus, pine, and herbal character of whole-cone American hops.”

Overall: B+, but not an everyday fit for me
