‘Hop Torpedo’ : Sierra Nevada Torpedo Extra IPA, Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, Chico, CA

image

Sierra Nevada cannot go wrong with a beer from Chico, CA. I wish I could have been at the Sierra dinner, looked amazing! The nose gives out a grapefruit and piney aroma just as stated on the bottle. What intrigued me was the ‘hop torpedo’ which they say brings this beer alive and I imagine makes the ‘extra’ part of the IPA. It has a dry citrusy finish and a flavor explosion that lingers well after a swill. The torpedo is a ‘revolutionary’ method of dry hopping which I will have to leave to the brewers to explain. This beer settles at 7.2% abv and does not disappoint. It is a very refreshing brew due I think to the ‘purest ingredients’ Sierra claims on every label.

    https://brewbloggers.net/2013/07/25/sierra-nevada-beer-dinner-fred-ethels-lantern-light-smithville-nj/ – this beer dinner was pretty amazing. In fact, they should have another beer dinner coming up, its been a while.
    This post inspired me to learn more about the “Hop Torpedo”, as I haven’t had one of these since last summer when I brought it with me to beach volleyball.
    Here is what they say on Sierra Nevada’s website:
    “The first beer to feature our “Hop Torpedo”—a revolutionary dry-hopping device that controls how much hop aroma is imparted into beer without adding additional bitterness.” I do not see a picture of the device on their site, but this varietal along with all their other delicious beers puts them squarely on the brewery tour map. I would like to first visit their new brewery that is about to open in Asheville, NC, maybe in early 2016.
