Sierra Nevada Torpedo Extra IPA

Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, Chico CA & Mills River NC


Torpedo ale is a big American IPA – perfectly balanced yet full of flavor and aromas that highlight the complex citrus, pine, and herbal character of whole-cone American hops.

7.2% ABV

Torpedo is a clear, light amber color.  There’s not much of a smell to this brew.  There is a bit of hop on the nose, but nothing compared to  Urban South Holy Roller, where it leapt out at you.  Father Jack would call this balanced.  Doc Sportello thinks it doesn’t taste like the name would suggest.  Large Marge thinks it is malty up front, bitter on the back end, but balanced – definitely not as bitter as the Urban South.

Would we have it again?  Yes, all of us

Would we get a 6 pk?  No – all of us
