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.

12 oz bottle. Pours a nice amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is mostly hops. Not as hoppy as I imagined it would be. There is a good hops flavor but something just seems lacking. Not a bad beer by any means but not great either.

Sample from my brother law Bob’s cooler. A nice golden pour with big aromas of hops and grass. Flavor of citrus, pine and grapefruit, all in a magnificent blend. Really good.

The beer pours a nice orange color with a cream-colored head. The aroma is very fruity. I get a lot of papaya and mango, but I also get some bready malt notes. The flavor is also very fruity. In addition to the papaya, I get some orange citrus. The beer is very juicy tastings. There is a little bit of bready malt. Low bitterness. A nicely balanced IPA that has a ton of fruit flavor, but not too much bitterness of malty sweetness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Good floral hop aroma. Pours orange red color with good head that dissipates fairly quickly. Tons of hop flavor. Lots of hop bitterness in the aftertaste. A little sweet on the pallet even with the massive amount of hops. This is a beer for hop lovers. Good stuff.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2011 I find it a bit hard to meaningfully distinguish between US IPAs but this is a good as any I’ve had recently. Beautiful glowing orange in colour with a thin head. Nose shows plenty of fruit sweetness together with a harder hop note. Very clean. Plenty of punch in the palate but there’s a layer or herbal sweetness that never disappears. Drives the palate really well. Palate dries up on the finish as the resin hops become more noticable.

DarkSong (346) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - OCT 24, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours amber with a large white long lasting head. It has a very nice pine and lemon floral hop aroma. It has a strong but not overpowering hop bitterness which is nice but not overly complex. It tastes strongly of pine and grapefruit with some resin and grass. This is a very good IPA.
