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.

DarkSong (352) - 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.

Picked up a 6 pack from the local liquor store. I head mixed reviews on this beer so i was anxious to try it. Aroma is very solid of hops and lemon. Taste is hoppy and very piney, almost straight pine tasting. A nice bitter aftertaste. Solid IPA.

jaghana (5376) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - OCT 22, 2010
Bottle 33cl from Mondial de la bière. A copper beer with medium head. Smell is hopy and lemony. Aroma is amazing, rich bitterness, some oily presence and round resin notes around the tong, with a very pleasant and rich malty character, a perfect IPA. Easy to drink, well perfumed, long aftertaste, refreshing very pleasant.

ClubGonzo (5358) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 22, 2010
Bottle. Light, clear bronze body with a medium white top. Nose is grapefruit, kiwi and hints of strawberry. Taste is grassy hops, raspberry and kiwi, with some earthy tones in the background. This is a solidly crafted American IPA, and truly a archetypal representative of the genre. Not super great or anything, but certainly a good beer.

Mycket fin. Kanske lite söt för min smak men jättefin humlebeska! Härlig grumlig färg! Läcker etikett.

Sierra Nevada, you have done well. Your IPA is pounced on by the taste of pepper flakes and mango. And man, that hop taste marinates on the tongue like a buoy of flavor. Dude, beer, you have not disappointed. The complexity here is intricate, unwavering, full of appropriate hubris. Getting smacked by the hand of this liquid demigod is a good love tap. To future cheers!

Pours copper color with nice clarity and fluffy white head. Aroma is not overwhelming, but nice with some pine and perhaps a hint of caramel. Flavor bring a bitterness throughout that is overpowered by caramel sweetness to finish. I could do with a little less caramel, but a solid beer nonetheless.
