Sierra Nevada's Tropical Torpedo IPA is inspired by the island life. It's the total opposite of your classic West Coast IPA. They used their “hop torpedo”—a revolutionary dry-hopping device that controls how much hop aroma is imparted into beer without adding additional bitterness—to deliver an intense rush of hop flavor along with the lush aromas of mango, papaya, and passionfruit with every sip. Pair with your favorite tropical dishes, from lumpia to spam musubi, jerk chicken, poke bowls, or just a sunny afternoon in the park.
