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.

Bottle, bought @ Systembolaget, Hyltebruk.
Pours brownish amber with a big, creamy, off-white head. Aroma has lots of pine on top of a fine caramel profile. Grapefruit, citrus and light apricot. Highish carbonation, really lovely dry mouthfeel with some lovely creaminess. Flavour is a lovely hoppy beer. Pine, grapefruit on top of a very good malty caramel base. This is really a super well-balanced IPA.

Hangover (1063) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - NOV 6, 2009
Ah,.. the citra hop. Has a piney aroma I usually equate with SN brews. Pretty complex hop flavor profile. Primarily pine, but there is a nice fruity,apricot aspect. Nice malty backbone. A pretty refined, hoppy brew. Very good!

SilkTork (5252) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2009
Cask@GBBF 2009. Lovely. Hoppy, yet clean and sweet. Reddish. Malt is a bit darker, robust and flavoursome than an APA. Good brew.

DonBirnam (108) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 3, 2009
Amber orenge. Citrus hop nosw. Big resinous piny hop flavour, with a oily, lasting bitterness. Underlying fruity sweetness balances it out and makes it very drinkable

DuffMan (6980) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 1, 2009
Bottle, shared with Parksy and pitted against Firestone Union Jack. Deep hazy gold, bubbly white head. Similar nose to Firestone just not as intense, and a little sweeter. Equally hoppy as Firestone with similar character, only a little spicier. Mouthfeel is not as chewy and a little thinner. Equally bitter finish.

Jabswitch (278) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 31, 2009
Very bitter, even for an IPA. Needed more complementary background tastes - fruit or pine. Something to go along with the bite. Not a pleasant beer to drink for me. I am an IPA fan but this doesn’t rank too high on the list.
