The Details

It started as a napkin sketch in a pub, an idea for a device that could boost hop aroma without adding more bitterness. We built the sketch, and the “Hop Torpedo” revolutionized dry hopping and inspired Torpedo, one of our favorite IPA style beers. It’s an aggressive yet balanced beer featuring the complex citrus, pine, and herbal character of whole-cone hops. This captivating IPA will leave you reaching for another.

“World-class…one of the best IPAs you can buy.”

How It Works

The Hop Torpedo

Dry hopping is a way to give beer more flavor and aroma, not more bitterness. A traditional method is filling nylon sacks with hops and suspending them in fermentation tanks. But sometimes we’d remove those sacks—even weeks later—and they’d be dry in the middle! With the Hop Torpedo, we maximize every hop. Beer circulates out of a fermenter, flows through the column of hops, and back into the tank. By adjusting the time, temperature and speed of circulation, we can control the aromas and flavors in a finished beer.

On a recent grocery run I spotted Atomic Torpedo DIPA, a new-to-me brew from the folks at sierranevada. I found it to have a sweet malty base which was layered with intensely piney hops and a streak of boozy heat. This one does not hide its 8.2% ABV, but it handles it well. I’d recommend picking it up if you see it out and about. What are you drinking today? ...

Bourbon Barrel-aged

Torpedo

Towering tanks with sleek lines, hand-shaped bourbon barrels, and a final infusion of hop intensity—this is how we’re celebrating our decade of Torpedo. To mark its anniversary, we cellared away a fresh batch for months before recharging the mellowed beer in its namesake, the Hop Torpedo. The result: bold, fruity hop flavor and aroma with notes of rich bourbon and vanilla from the oak. Cheers!

Get some!
