Day #290 – Sierra Nevada Torpedo Extra IPA

October 18, 2011

Needed a good hoppy beer for today to take the edge off the pumpkin beers I’ve had recently.

Sierra Nevada Torpedo Extra IPA


Torpedo is brewed by Sierra Nevada Brewing Company based out of Chico, California. I’ve reviewed several things from them before. This is an IPA from them at 7.2%.

This beer pours a clear golden orange color with a slight amber tint. Also has a white type head.

Aroma is very hoppy and spicy. Nice floral type notes with grapefruit spice and pine needles. Also has a leafy type finish.

Flavor is lots of hops and spice, with a light bitter flavor and finish. There are lots of pine notes and a slight sweetness. This is well balanced and is very flavorful. I would certainly get this again!
