Light aroma and a burnt orange color. Medium cloudiness, slightly fruity start on this and a little bitterness on the finish ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is my favorite beer. Since its only available seasonally, I pick up Torpedo the rest of the year. Im just a big fan of the hops SN uses which provides the perfect combination of hoppy flavor with a crisp citrus finish.

Pours a dark copper body and two fingers of fluffy white head that recedes slowly leaving a nice trail on the glass. Floral nose balanced with yeast caramel malts. Piney taste with a good level of carbonation and a touch of malty sweetness. Finishes bitter with a hint of citrus.

Big off white head, smell is light biscuit malt. Pretty drinkable but not a go to winter beer for me.

One of my favorites this time of year. Biscuity malt that has a touch of red in it with a hop blend that is super balanced in flavor and beats out the malt very appropriately.
