Torpedo Extra Indian Pale Ale by Sierra Nevada Brewing Company Sierra Nevada – what an ale! In this case, Indian Pale Ale. Folks at Sierra Nevada were so serious about their full-cone hops, they invented their own patented device, the Hop Torpedo. This device extracts the volatile hop oils more efficiently, without adding bitterness.
Which is like tailor made for my taste buds. Torpedo Extra Indian Pale Ale takes its name from Sierra Nevada Brewing’s unique dry-hopping technique, where they maximize the pine, herbal and citrus aromas forming the backbone of beer.
By the way, the nowadays famous IPA glass (seen on my picture) was actually designed by Sierra Nevada along with Dogfish Head.
Usually, when a beer gets a review by me, it is worth the full ten points. No exception here:10 Fresh in every way. Brewery: Sierra Nevada Brewing Company Brand: Sierra Nevada Torpedo ABV: 7.2%
