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.

Rating #1... here we go. Clear Amber color, nice lacing, the head lasts. The aroma is lacking in hops, the flavor is not hoppy enough for the style, but it’s an easy drinking, enjoyable, starter IPA at a good price. Slightly hoppier than Sierra’s Pale Ale.

sdriessen (320) - Dunedin, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 11, 2010
Lovely aroma, full of fruit (pears, lemons, grapes) and a hint of alcohol. Quite a nice white-wine (sauvignon?) element. Bits of sugar, candy (sherbet). Flavours are smooth and even. Delicious fruity candyness full of hops, balanced by a crisp malt sweetness.

aracauna (3084) - Georgia, USA - JAN 11, 2010
Slightly hazed copper with some particulate. Good head. Creamy texture and lasts a while. Some citrus zest and pine in the aroma, but not exactly big aroma for the style, at least modern interpretations with dry hopping so prevalent. The hoppiness comes out much more in the flavor finishing up with a fairly sharp bitterness that is not unpleasant. Light fruitiness under the hops in the aroma.

Sabrinic (23) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - JAN 11, 2010
Bottle. Clear amber color. Well balanced flavor, good level of bitterness (not too strong yet not too weak). Taste of pine, citrus, herbs. In general an enjoyable IPA which is easy to drink and affordable.

rmasa (324) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JAN 11, 2010
Clear, amber color, moderate, white head; aroma of pinewood hops, citrus, sweet malt in the background; mouthfeel is a bit tangly, but also pretty smooth; in flavor slightly harsh bitterness is balanced by (a bit too much) sweet malt; still remains enjoyble.

vtafro (3256) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - JAN 10, 2010
Bottle.Smells like a combination of marijuana and piney grassy hops. Flavor follows aroma. Almost 1.5*IPA, not a IPA, not a IIPA. Decent brew.

12oz. Bottle from VBM in Buffalo. Pours a clear copper/orange with a medium sized fluffy white head. Some fine sediment floaties and light lacing. Nice aroma of fruits, citrus, some nuts, malts and hops. Flavor is a good balance of malts and floral hops. Mild overall, thin finish. Solid IPA

Med Sierra Nevada behöver man aldrig tveka. Som sig bör har de bryggt ett öl på källklar kärlek och den renaste passion. Beskan är vänlig men bestämd och lotsar en genom Torpedos berusande vackra flora av aromer.
