In January, Sierra Nevada is set to release a new year round beer called “Torpedo”. Being a hop head, I have high expectations.
Info via Beer Advocate: Sierra Nevada will be releasing Torpedo Extra IPA as a new addition to our year-round staple of beers. The tentative release date is January 15.
This is the first of two new year-round beers for Sierra Nevada in 2009, and the first change in our year-round lineup since we started back in 1980.
The beer will be available in 6-packs, with the same distribution as all of our other year-round and seasonal beers.Torpedo is in a grey area, somewhere between an IPA and a
Double IPA…We are calling it Extra IPA…
IBU’s in the high 70’s to 80’s
Bittering hops: with Magnum
Finishing hops: Magnum, Crystal, Chinook.
Torpedo: Magnum, Chinook, Citra.
