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.

“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.

Tobias 'The Torpedo' Tenderbum was the greatest stunt man that ever lived. He would tour the globe, entertaining crowds by being shot from a cannon across any mountain range he could find. Rumour has it that he would be so drunk when he performed the stunts that his body was a mush and so he felt no pain. Sadly, in 1979 while attempting to clear the Sierra Nevada range he went missing and was never found. Some believe he burned to a crisp midair. Others believe he was eaten by wolves. Some even say he just couldn't handle the fame, faked his death and now lives with 2Pac, Biggie and Elvis and in Alaska.
How nice it was for sierranevada to name their IPA after this great icon and one he would love too. This has a pine front aroma with lemon peel and honey. Taste has lots of citrus fruits that are well balanced with caramel/brown sugar, pine and a dry bitterness to finish.

Sierra Nevada 🇺🇸 Torpedo Extra IPA🍺 American IPA 7,2%ABV 65IBU - essa é a IPA clássica, com uma carga superior de malte e dry hopping, trazendo alto amargor mas muito bem equilibrado, trazendo aromas resinosos e cítricos como grapefruit sem exageros, onde fica claro o malte tostado e caramelo. Ótima pra voltar às origens e limpar o paladar de todas as novidades mega frutadas de hoje em dia.

Sierra Nevada Pale Ale 🇺🇸
Пивоварня Sierra Nevada Brewing Company.
ИПАшка более плотная и алгкоголесодержащая чем предшественники. Но от этого только более вкусная, насыщенная и желанная!
Вкус цитрусовый, хвойный,
горьковатое послевкусие. Плотное, чувствуется по сравнению с любым другим ИПА этой пивоварни. Вкусно! Признаюсь, давно влюбился в это пиво! Всем рекомендую! 👍✅
ABV 7.2
OG 17.0
IBU 65

Enfim .... nossa Quinta das Importadas (QI) está de volta!!! O Rótulo de hoje é um campeão de vendas nos Estados Unidos 🇺🇸 e no restante do mundo: É a Sierra Nevada Torpedo Extra IPA, uma deliciosa cerveja da Sierra Nevada Brewing Co (sierranevada).
.

Ken Grossman, idealizador da Cervejaria, partiu com um objetivo simples: preparar as cervejas que ele queria beber. Ele começou pequeno, com uma loja de “homebrew”, um amor pelo lúpulo americano e muita paixão. No processo, ele mudou o mundo da cerveja para sempre. Até hoje ele continua com a fabricação da cerveja 👏😃.
.
.
A Sierra Nevada e o lúpulo andam de mãos dadas. O que começou como uma idéia maluca rabiscada em um pub acabou se tornando uma “bomba de lúpulos”, a Torpedo Extra IPA 🍺🤤.
.
.
A primeira cerveja a apresentar o “Hop Torpedo” - um revolucionário dispositivo de “dry-hopping”, que controla quanto aroma de lúpulo é transmitido para a cerveja sem acrescentar amargor adicional. Torpedo Extra IPA é uma cerveja agressiva, mas equilibrada, com grandes quantidades de frutas cítricas, pinheiros e frutas tropicais 😍😍.
.
.
A Sierra Nevada Torpedo Extra IPA é uma cerveja que possui aromas de lúpulos florais, herbais e cítricos de forte presença. Notas herbais e florais e um sensacional amargor residual. Corpo médio assim como sua carbonatação, uma cerveja muito equilibrada e com ótimo “drinkability” 🍺🤤😃.

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!
