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.

wiedrzensky (98) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 27, 2015
On tap at "na 7. schode", Zilina. Clear amber/ light orange with medium white head, fair lacing. Aroma of hops, fruity, resin, spruce, some citrus as well, floral. Taste is hoppry bitter, citrusy fresh, with just hint of sweetness. Dry, medium body, soft carbonation. Very well balanced, fresh IPA.

Aroma is a little misleading. Seems a little faint and lackadaisical given the stellar reputation for a widely available bottle brew, but upon drinking its character shows, especially in complex but easy-to-manage taste.

Ambro206 (214) - ITALY - MAR 23, 2015
La birra si presenta in un color perfetto ambrato carico con un cappello di abbondante schiuma compatta. Al naso la birra è resinosa e pinosa con un tocco di caramello. In bocca si sprigiona una comunione di aromi perfetta con il luppolo in evidenza che non va però mai oltre a quel che dovrebbe. Il corpo è pieno, la carbonazione perfetta. Il finale è lungo e secco con una sensazione di amaro rotondo in tutta la bocca.

Eructoblaster (3215) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 22, 2015
Bottle - 350ml. Hazy amber body with a thin off-white foamy head. Lovely, complex hoppy aroma with malty, mango, citrusy, and caramel hints. Its fresh, sharp hoppy taste carries citrusy and herbal notes. Ends with a robust bitter finish. Very good example of American IPA.

tightslice (260) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAR 20, 2015
Bottle at Evernote. Pours a nice thick Amber. Aroma is grapefruit and honey. A very drinkable and well balanced IPA from SN.

Freaky_tiki (698) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 20, 2015
Deep brown pour at Bonefish follows -- or perhaps sets -- the ipa template. By no means a hop juice, this is a tasty & almost refreshing IPA. Not overly hoppy, medium bitterness, strong carbonation. Dangerously drinkable. Goes really well with spicy shrimp po’ boy sandwich. Do it.

JakePlissken (29) - SWEDEN - MAR 20, 2015
Drucken på flaska. Guldröd färg med härlig skumkrona. Brödig malt, smakar mogna frukter, avslutar med toner av humle. Torr. God, men föredrar SN Pale Ale.

355ml bottle. 09/06/15. Bright pale amber colour with a creamy off-white head and excellent retention and lacing. Aroma of citrus, pine, resin and a little malt sweetness, assertive without being overbearing. The medium/full body and creamy, mouth-filling texture grabs your attention before the taste does. Medium to heavy bitterness and light to medium sweetness. Long bitter resin finish. An excellent drop. 8.

floydslip (226) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 16, 2015
Amber beer with a medium foamy eggshell head. Hoppy nose of citrus, some resin, and even a bit of herbs (like mint). Flavor is hop forward, but not overwhelmingly so, with flavors that mimic the aroma. I would have liked a bit more malt to counterbalance the hops. Still, this is a decent drinkable beer that is pretty tame for an IPA, let alone and Extra IPA (whatever that means).
