Ölbeat 060: Sierra Nevada Torpedo Extra IPA

Brewery: Sierra Nevada Brewing Company
Country: United States
Style: India Pale Ale
Abv: 7,2 %
Liquid explosion without gunpowder
What about the beer?
Colour is bright copper orange with small natural white head. Aroma has orange, lemon and hops. Taste bites first with citrus and hoppy bitter freshness. The biting hops and sour grapefruit continue carrying the brew. Towards the end some piny dryness and a fruity sweet notes get added to the package. Aftertaste has first bitter and fruity elements and then dryness.

What a super fresh experience. The hop and citrus flavours are unrounded and pure, which makes Torpedo stand out of the ocean of ordinary India Pale Ales. Truly an IPA worth the reputation.


Powerful Californian beer cries for a powerful Californian rock song. Since the beer is a classic, let's listen to a true American rock classic:

Van Halen: Jump (YouTube)

From the 1984 album 1984, the song was written by Eddie Van Halen, Alex Van Halen and David Lee Roth.
