Beer Review: Sierra Nevada/Firestone Walker’s Torpedo Hoppy Pilsner

The Hopmasons

torpedopilsner

One of the beers in the pack I was most excited about the hoppy pilsner collab between Sierra and their fellow California brewery Firestone Walker. Torpedo Pilsner easily had the potential to be one of the best beers in the pack as Firestone makes an incredible pilsner on their own, Pivo as well as some other incredible hoppy beers. They went with some newer interesting hops from New Zealand to make this a very unique America/German hybrid pilsner. Torpedo Pilsner comes in at 5.2% ABV and 45 IBUs (another one).

Appearance: Hazy straw yellow with a 1/1 finger head. Some good lacing pretty much what I anticipated as far as appearance.

Nose: Fruity and floral hop notes out in front. German lager yeast and pilsner malt definitely noticeable as well. Nice clean fruity, floral and earthy notes coming out of this one for the most part. An enjoyable lager nose.
