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.

Tasted 21/09/2009. 12oz bottle from Regionals. Started off stunning, having me thinking of what I wanted His Majesty to be... but it died away withthe hop spice and alcohol becoming just a little too prominent in the finish. Lovely beer but not quite enough to sink this battleship.

jarndyce (38) - Florida, USA - SEP 20, 2009
Bottle This is really fantastic and packs a whallop at 7.2% alcohol (if memory serves). Huge lemon citrus aroma. Tight taste, lemongrass, apple, pine, a hint of nut. Definitely the surprise of 2009 for me...will gladly drink this again.

wickedpete (634) - Lexington Park, Maryland, USA - SEP 19, 2009
Amber body with a thick soapy froth of a head leaving plenty of lace. Aroma is citrusy and floral with some bitterness showing through. Flavor is pleasantly bitter and becomes drier toward the finish. Some caramel and citrus along with a light floral hop flavor.

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - SEP 19, 2009
Slightly red pour, nice head, constant lacing. Pine-hop aroma. Some sweetness, then comes the hop blast, Some sticky resin flavor, abit sugary, hops dominate, but aftertaste is sweet and clean, VERY well balanced, great brew, great brew! Love this one, can’t wait to have again, Bravo Sierra Nevada!!!!

Clear reddish-gold. This white head that lasts. Citrusy hop aroma. Some malt sweetness hidden in the hop bitterness. Medium-light bodied. Bitterness lingers. I am not tasting the hops due to the bitterness, but I do like this IPA.

Elwood (3311) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 16, 2009
Serving: 12 oz. bottle. Appearance: Amber orange with a foamy, off-white head. Great head retention. Aroma: Lighter than expected I got some pine notes but had a hard time getting much else. A bit too cold perhaps. Taste: Big pine hop notes and good malt sweetness to even everything out. Not overly sweet mind you, just enough to help keep things drinkable. Nice herbal and citrus notes. This one has great balance! Palate: Medium-high carbonation with a medium-rich mouthfeel and a long, bitter finish. Just the way it should be! Overall: This one has scary drinkability. Definitely worth seeking out if you haven’t had it yet!

Plovmand (6524) - Helsinge, DENMARK - SEP 14, 2009
Bottle at Bishops Arms, Stockholm. Amber body with a thick off white head. Grassy hops in aroma with fruity and piney notes. Very piney flavour with lots of citrus, fruit and caramel notes. You can taste the alcohol as well. Creamy texture.
