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.

Pours bright, clear copper with a slightly off white creamy head with excellent retention as well as sticky side glass lacing.
A: Hops, and more hops. Grapefruit rind and tart but also gets some balance from some bready malts, but the hops still dominate.
Taste: Get the citrus of grapefruit rinds and pineapple, spice and also creamy malts. Is dry with a bitter finish.
Excellent!

Just not a fan of IPA's, but my wife likes them, so I try them. Just not my kind of beer. A little too potent on the floral tastes.

This was just ok for me. I liked their regular pale ale better. IPA I tried before this was Long Trail Limbo which I thought was outstanding. Would not buy this again. But.. Would not turn down if offered one either. (REVISED) ok, this beer has really grown on me. Maybe the first time I got a bad batch. Love this stuff more and more!
