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.

Aroma is lightly floral with unripened mango. Flavor is what I imagine rusty cardboard would be if that was possible. Deep minerals and a bone dry hard bitter finish define this brew. Mouthfeel is refreshing and medium bodied. Below average effort for a classic brewery. Thanks Sierra Nevada. 2010 12oz.

Die_Kapusta (190) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 24, 2010
This beer has a really beautiful amber color and big cream colored head. Aroma of pine, orange, bread, caramel, herbs and some sweet floral notes. Quite dry taste. A lot of pine and resin but also citrus flavours like grapefruit, bergamot and clementine. Finishes hoppy and floral. A real solid IPA with a little extra.

Wow this is good. I love SNPA, but the added hop and alcohol really puts this on top. My favorite IPA.

armando629 (2447) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 23, 2010
0,355 l bottle from Prague.
Poured golden amber with a nice pillowy and foamy off white head. Caramel in the background a ton of hop in the foreground in the nose with a resiny citrussy, herbal-floral perfume. Like a flowery field. Medium bodied one, fine-mild malts, honey and caramel with the fine hop character: citrusses, grape and resine, pine and spicies. Well balanced in the flavor, on the palate, in the aftertaste. Wow, that was fine!

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Slightly hazed orange hue, good head formation and retention. Lots of piney citrus hops on the nose. Soft palate delivers a semi-sweet orangey body, liners a little syrupy but nothing too thick. Hops take over agressively in the back half making for a strong bitter grapefruit finish. Definitely a hop heads beer, my only complaint would be that the hops are a little too aggressive and the malt lacks depth. Still highly drinkable in my book.

DrnkMcDermott (2899) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - AUG 22, 2010
12 oz. bottle, $1.50 single at HyVee. There’s the expected big American hop smell under the cap. Pours amber, almost brown in an IPA tulip, with a rocky head of foam. Taste is everything a hop-head could expect. Piney, sticky with hop resin, a bit citrussy, and with a good backing of malt. Slightly more alcohol is welcome at this time of night. Not as much attitude as Alpha King. May be one of my new favorite general-purpose IPAs.

ruskiimperial (308) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Poured a dark orange with almost two finger’s worth of white head. Aroma has a very resin like grassy tone. Taste is surprisingly high in alfa acids with a lot of resin. Herbal flavors also come across quite strong on the aftertaste. It definitely busts the palate if you’re planning to drink any milder beer afterwards. A rather enjoyable ipa.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 19, 2010
Bottle.Nose is sweet. Citrus, specifically tangerone, with notes of apricot, peaches, and musk. Brilliantly clear copper with thin white head. Strong bitterness but well-restrained, allowing fruit character to shine. Medium bodied with firm astringency.
