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. Pours some kind of red-orange-yellow mix with a foamy white head. Smell is strong citrus fruit. Very biting, stinging scent. Taste has a sweet malt backbone with some hops on the tongue. A little pine would put this beer over the top - not quite enough for me.

cracklefish (108) - Ohio, USA - MAY 2, 2010
Copper pour with a lasting almost white head. Nose is orange, tangerine, melon and papaya. Flavor is herbal, earthy, citrus and almond. The malt is there but not real sweet. Bready, toasty and caramel notes as the hops move to bitterness. Finish is rubbing alcohol and peaches, almost perfumy. The aftertaste is gross!

Clear amber pour with off-white head which fades quickly, leaving a moderate lace. Bread, toast, tea flavors from the malt whilst the hops lend a resinous and spruce aroma. Some tartness at the start and faint grass in the finish. Medium to heavy mouth feel. More balanced than most IPAs but not pleasantly so.

Great balance of bitterness, hops and price. You won’t regret this purchase.

Fred82 (2116) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - APR 30, 2010
12oz fresh bottle from Winooski btl date April 8th 2010
Appearance : Clear amber with big foamy and creamy head. Extensive lacing.
Aroma : Leafy and resinous hops. Notes of passion fruits. Some malt with light notes of caramel.
Taste : Carbonation is surprisingly thin but still enjoyable. Taste is rather sweet with lots of hops. Hops are leafy and sharp. Resinous with some passion fruits. Finish is sharp leafy and dry. Quite bitter with sweet notes of caramel. Finish is warm and and bit peppery
Overall : Nose is awesome. I like that sharp leafy hop profile along the passion fruit notes. Very good beer. Taste is also very nice perhaps a bit too sweet compared to what I like in this type of IPA. Alcohol could also be better hidden. Rather easy drinking. Awesome beer.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 28, 2010
350 ml bottle. Hazy light copper colour. Tall off-white thick creamy head that clings to the glass. Bold and rich apricoty hops aroma with grassy notes. Crisp malty flavours. Fairly high carbonation makes this a lively beer, but that works really well. Nice hoppy bite that balances the rich sweet malt. Excellent beer that is very drinkable even though the alcohol is relatively high.

Refrigerated bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a light amber, with big off-white head. Aroma is piney and herbal. Taste is floral herbal hops and some bitterness. I prefer this to Sierra Nevada pale ale, but Victory Hop Devil my be slightly better.
