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.

Cerveza Torpedo Extra IPA 🍺
De Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. 🇺🇸 sierranevada
Color ámbar con destellos dorados, con corona de espuma color marfil, de buena carbonatación, olor a cítricos macerados. Al gusto tiene un toque a naranja, toronja y lima. Su lúpulo es persistente, sus maltas se aprecian a detalle. Su amargor es especial, delicioso. Tiene un final dice y afrutado, con destellos de miel y cilantro.
Considero marida bien con un lonche de carne adobada, tacos al pastor y cabrito. 🌮🥙 🥪
Con 7.2 % Vol. Alc. Una IPA con esteroides 💪🍺
La adquirí en beerbanktorreon que tiene un excelente servicio y surtido de las mejores cervezas internacionales y nacionales !

A non-hazy hazy IPA. 🤯

Don’t sweat it, it’s still great! This year creaturecomfortsbeer collaborated with sierranevada for their annual Get Comfortable release. You can definitely tell Sierra Nevada was pretty involved with this beer as it has some great flavor of citrus and pine. Reminds me of a mix of Torpedo & Tropicalia, definitely a solid release. 🍻
