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 Extra IPA. It’s an aggressive yet balanced beer featuring the complex citrus, pine, and herbal character of whole-cone hops.

“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.

Torpedo - Extra IPA 7.2 % Alc. Vol. by Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. (USA).

La Cervecera Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. es una cervecera artesanal estadounidense mundialmente famosa, que usa técnicas tradicionales y tiene su sede en California. La Torpedo es una cerveza ambarina, de tipo India Pale Ale, con una lupulización sabrosa y mucho cuerpo.

En el vaso, la Torpedo presenta un color ambarino bastante claro y una espuma muy concentrada.

Los aromas que se desprenden de la Sierra Nevada son afrutados, cítricos y caramelizados.

En boca, percibimos una cerveza perfectamente lupulizada, con un pronunciado amargor. Los sabores afrutados a cítricos, con una pizca de caramelo, proporcionan un excelente equilibrio a esta cerveza.

¡Un excelente ejemplo de American IPA!

🍺 Sierra Nevada « Torpedo Extra IPA »

🇺🇸 Chico, Californie

🐊 Aaaah... sierranevada ! Ça finit par se voir, non ?
En même temps, est-ce vraiment de ma faute s’ils ne font que des bonnes bières ? Et peut-on leur en vouloir pour ça ?
Non et non !
C’est avec grand plaisir que j’attaque cette « Torpedo Extra IPA ». Avec un nom pareil, c’est sûr ça va envoyer du bois.
La robe est ambrée, la mousse blanche et tenace.
Je découvre une bière évolutive : chaque gorgée est une surprise.
Ça commence par une attaque amère d’agrume sur le bout de la langue. Au fur et à mesure, celle-ci se déplace sur les côtés puis dans le fond, tout en délivrant des saveurs de pins (ça envoie du bois... tu l’as ? Hmmm... bon d’accord j’arrête).
L’ensemble est porté par le malt au goût de caramel
Un véritable numéro de funambule tant cette bière est équilibrée entre la douceur du malt d’un côté et l’amertume du houblon de l’autre.
Clairement, à ce jour, c’est ce que j’ai goûté de plus caractéristique en matière de West Coast IPA.
