COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Torpedo is an assertive American IPA deep reddish-gold in color, with a smooth and bready malt presence and over-the-top hop aromas. The beer has a solid bitterness and a massive hop flavor, yet remains easy drinking with a pleasant dry finish.

Coppery pour with a tons of thick foam. Aroma is a huge amount of citrusy hops. Flavor is very bitter with the citrus-like hops overpowering any malt flavors. Perfectly carbonated. Creamy mouthfeel. Finishes dry. Could use some more sweetness or complexity, but all in all this is a great hoppy IPA.

An overall great beer from a solid brewery. More hoppy than the pale ale with nice body and finish.

Decent for being in a bottle. Not a strong scent. Does not taste like an ipa, more like a pale ale. Not a very complex flavor but a tasty one.

weordie (10) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2014
This beer had a very pleasant but strong hoppy taste. It had notes of caramel on the aroma. Didn’t taste like it was 7.2% which may end up being dangerous.

orangenblu62 (39) - Illinois, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Amber color with a thick head that lasts. Light hoppy taste. Bitter after taste. Creamy mouth feel. Bitterness mellows with each sip. Overall a solid beer.

Creamy, well bitter IPA with a heavy but very pleasant hoppiness and a long, slightly alcoholic aftertaste.

Whatup14 (707) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 20, 2014
Bouteille 355ml. Couleur cuivrée translucide, mousse beige crémeuse ayant une bonne tenue, huileuse. Arôme de pamplemousse, malt, houblon feuillu. Goût de pamplemousse, malt, sucré léger, amertume moyenne. Carbonatation moyenne-élevée, corps moyen. Une bouteille probablement trop vieille. À revisiter.

Wow. Bought a case at a Publix by Sanibal Isalnd, FL and what a treat. Great flavor, thickness, hoppiness - it’s all going on. Not a good beach beer unless you can keep those badboy bottles in a lot of ice.
