Sierra Nevada Torpedo Extra IPA

torpedo ipa

The Torpedo Extra IPA is the latest hop bomb coming from Sierra Nevada. This beer is made of 2 row pale and caramel grains, magnum, crystal and citra hops and fermented with an ale yeast. While this sounds like a standard IPA, Sierra Nevada utilizes their custom-made Hop Torpedo device to dry hop the fermented beer.

Upon pour we see an amber dark murky color which is darker than most IPAs. The aroma has hints of citrus and the strong hops scent similar to pine needles and herbs. The taste is where this beer excels as most IPAs are quite strong, the citrus, malty and nuttiness makes this very drinkable and like a session style. We are nearly at summer, but this IPA works for this time of year.
