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.

A - Pours a clear golden copper color with two fingers of yellowish white head which is quite foamy and leaves a good lacing behind.

S - Smells strongly of pine with a hint of citrus and caramel. I caught just a whiff of skunk.

T - Piney with a hint of citrus and caramel again. The nice hoppy bitter at the end covers up the average grain bill.

M - A nice medium body, but perhaps a bit light for an extra IPA. There is medium carbonation as well.

O - I enjoy this IPA. It is hopped well and contains a few nuanced flavors. It's a bit light bodied and clear for double IPA though.
