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.

sleestak (226) - Williamston, Michigan, USA - NOV 14, 2009
12 oz. bottle. Pours dark amber, slightly hazy, with a substantial foamy head. Aroma is chock full o’ citrus and resinous hops. Malt definitely takes a back seat, but makes an appearance. Flavor is full of juicy peach and grapefruit, slightly offset by caramel malt. Slight alcohol in the finish, but mostly lingering hop bitterness. Really stellar IPA, especially for the price.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 14, 2009
0.35 L bottle from Systembolaget, Charlottenberg. A slightly hazed, orange-amber beer with a two-finger, foamy and airy, white head. Superhoppy aroma, zesty citrus, tropical and pine. Bold hop bitter taste as well, with grapefruit and oranges in the lead. A caramelly malt flavor is there to balance. Thick, oily mouthfeel. Well-bodied. Massive hop bitterness in a lasting finish. Not overdone, a great IPA with great drinkability.

BrewingFan (251) - Texas, USA - NOV 13, 2009
Strong floral, earthy hops on the nose. Nice deep copper that heads up real nice and maintains it for a while. Palate actually comes across quite thin, but it is knocked out of the way by the hops and bitterness. Finish leaves a pucker effect. Its not a double/imperial, it is exactly what it says, a little extra hop and bitterness in a thinner IPA.

jb (2277) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 13, 2009
Slight haze, copper, thick burnt orange tinged head. Very hoppy aroma, bouquet is mostly pine, a bit of grapefruit and sugar daddy. Mouth feel is clean, plenty of bitterness and hops in this. The start is nice and fades into hoppy oblivion.

DeadGirl (478) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 13, 2009
Straight from the 12oz. bottle, not at Bryant Park like my neighbor, Pwn3d, but poolside while listening to B Spears (on repeat): Characteristically fruity (ripe apricots, dried mango, grapefruit, peaches...) and some earthy/grassy flavors too. Drinkability: Multi-dimensional, but also may be forgettable. Rebuy: Probably. #194 on 13112009, DG.

Haslinger (865) - The World of Beer, Texas, USA - NOV 13, 2009
12 ounce bottle. Nice green bottle. Great hops aroma and taste. A nice slightly bitter aftertaste. VEry well balanced. Tastes like a beefed up SN Pale Ale. Solid would buy again

cmillward (497) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 11, 2009
Bottle. Pours a coppery gold with a large off-white head with nice lacing. Nose is pine and citrus hops, a little tropical fruit over some caramel and bready malts. Orange, peach hops, sweet malts, bitter finish with a slightly sweet aftertaste. Medium/heavy mouthfeel.

Picked up a six pack at Bryant Park Deli on 38th and 6th. Reasonably priced, only 1 buck more than Bud Light... which makes no sense to me. Assertive but not overly intense. Deep pine and oily hops. Not a bunch of complex flavors floating around, however still flavorful.
