Sierra Nevada Torpedo Extra IPA Bottle
Country: United States of America
Brewery: Sierra Nevada
Style: India Pale Ale / IPA
Format: 330ml Bottle
Sierra Nevada Torpedo is a big American IPA; bold, assertive, and full of flavour, highlighting the complex citrus, pine, and herbal character of whole-cone American hops.
At Sierra Nevada they take hops pretty seriously, which is why they weren't satisfied with the standard method of dry hopping for their first year-round IPA. They spent years tinkering, tasting, and tweaking to get the biggest and best hop flavours and aromas into their beer.
Persistence paid off. Their obsession with harnessing huge hop flavour led to the development of what they call the hop torpedo; a revolutionary method of dry-hopping designed, built, and debuted at their brewery. The torpedo is a sleek, stainless-steel piece of hardware that delivers more pure hop aroma than any method of dry-hopping Sierra Nevada has ever seen. Like all Sierra Nevada beers, Torpedo Extra IPA uses only the best whole-cone hops possible making this delicious ale well worth the wait.
WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Vert nice IPA , very fruity and pine on the nose. Very bitter and lots of hops. Great price for a very nice IPA. Will recommend this IPA to my friends.
Didn't think something so strong could be so well rounded. Other Double IPAs I've tried can be a bit intense, this was actually smooth and refined, despite amazing bold flavours you'd expect. Its Sierra Pale on steroids, and it's delicious.
Another great IPA from the US
Another classic to which I always go back. Well rounded, terrific bitterness, mild resin taste in the finale. Loved it! Alcohol is well balanced, not too obvious.
