Sierra Nevada Torpedo

Sierra Nevada Torpedo

Sierra Nevada's regular hop bomb and the first to use their dry-hopping "Hop Torpedo"--essentially a wind funnel for the fermenting beer--which imbues a huge hoppy aroma without the associated bitterness leaving a lush citrus and pine resin flavour to come through.

Sierra Nevada are fairly old by US craft brewery standards. Located in the Sierra Nevada mountains, they brew wild, hoppy expansive brews to an exceptionally high standard. Most people will have tried the Pale Ale, but the range goes much, much deeper than that and is well worth exploring. They also have an astonishing commitment to community and their environment - they claim the largest private solar panel farms and fuel over half their power needs from from the sun
  1. Hop (nautical) bomb Review by Llamaman

    The supercharged version of SN's pale ale, this delivers massive pine hop character without much bitterness.
    Could sink these (hohoho) all night (would probably regret it in the morning though, as it packs a well-disguised punch). (Posted on 08/04/2016)

  2. Hoppy goodness Review by Abdyman

    Another great beer from Sierra Nevada. Probably not the beer for you if you don't like american IPAs but if you do get this, you'll love it. (Posted on 29/03/2016)

  3. Great Beer Review by Ben

    Amazing, very nice brew. Expected hop power but not over the top. ABV is nowhere to be felt. Smooth. (Posted on 15/02/2016)

  4. American Top Dog Review by Rockmaker

    One of my favourite American IPA's. it packs a punch at easily compares to the best of British. I tried it for a change and keep coming back to it. Always nice to share. (Posted on 09/02/2016)

  5. Brilliant Review by JonB

    Fantastic IPA. Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is good, but this is so much more flavourful and also quite a lot stronger. (Posted on 06/02/2016)

  11. Stunning Review by DAvid

    Big, sweet tropical fruit notes and a background of pine. Perfectly balanced with great hop character and a building, bitter finish. (Posted on 14/05/2015)

  12. Great all round big bro to pale ale Review by BZ

    This is a much more flavourful beer than the lower ABV pale ale and i prefer it because of this. Great caramel taste from malt base and strong enough to hold up all the bitterness it provides. (Posted on 10/02/2015)

  13. Full flavoured big bro to the pale ale Review by BZ

    Great big brother to the pale ale, with much more flavour IMO and a stronger malt base to help with the higher ABV, top stuff (Posted on 09/02/2015)

    This is really tasty and strong IPA, one to enjoy rather than rush as it will blow your mind (Posted on 28/01/2015)

  15. So Funky! Review by Ay Pee Horne

    Nice and punchy IPA, full of funky hops. A real West Coaster and very satisfying. Way too strong to sink all day, but a lovely drop nonetheless. Will definitely buy this one again. (Posted on 12/01/2015)

A great selection of beers to choose from on the site. The purchase process was very easy and my beer arrived safely a few days later in well packaged boxes. I will definitely be using you again. It would have been nice to have been given a little more guidance on each of the beers, or event read reviews from other purchasers.
Great range of beers. Easy to order and very quick delivery.
How likely is it I'd recommend to a friend? Bloody likely since I already have been doing! Aside from the incredible selection of tasty beers the delivery is surprisingly fast and easy! Thanks Beer Hawk!
