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.

Golden color, medium white head. Mild hoppy nose. Aroma is herbal, hops, and some fruit (could be little bit more fruity, though). Heavy bitterness with long bitter finish. Medium body, average carbonation. Good, but expected more from Sierra Nevada. (Svijet piva 0,33l bottle)

Poured a slightly hazy deep amber color with a thin off-white head. Aroma of citrus and apricot. Taste is sweet with orange and citrus flavors. Very crisp and refreshing. Nice grapefruit flavors in the finish.

vanelst (36) - AUSTRIA - APR 22, 2014
Bottle. Good IPA with an aroma of pines, citrus, and malt. The taste is medium bitter and sweet, hops and alcohol. The moment you drink it, it kinda explodes on your tongue, but somehow it has a (litte) bit of anti-climax middle part where the taste somehow fades out. The aftertaste is nevertheless a pleasantly lingering bitternes. All in all a good classic American IPA.

350 ml bottle. Clear amber with big white head. Fresh fruity lemon smell with some hidden bitterness. Fresh taste at first with lemon and flowers. Then a sharp bitterness strikes. Light body makes the bitterness linger and last long.
