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.

_________________________________________
Вместе с вновь поступившим на наш рынок пивом Stone грех не взять парочку сортов от ещё одних небезызвестных калифорнийцев 🇺🇸 Sierra Nevada.

Открываем Torpedo Extra IPA. Прозрачный эль медно-янтарного цвета со стойкой бежевой пеной. В слабом аромате сырость, леденцы и хмель. Вкус достаточно насыщенный, но без экстрима: накатывающая горечь хмеля, ёлки, трáвы, ромашка, цитрусовая корка. На финише немного хинина, что немного смутило. Послевкусие цветочно-травяное с призвуками карамельной сладости, согревающее.

В целом, очень хорошо — сдержанно, благородно, но тело слегка пустоватое, цитрусы на минимуме, а сахар чуть выше среднего; в очном поединке Стоун повыразительнее будет.
📊4.0/5

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!
