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.

12 oz. bottle from Woodmanís Madison. Ar: The aroma is not as assertive as I expected it to be, but otherwise quite nice. Itís mostly dominated by floral hops with a pine hop background. Thereís also a slightly strange earthy/metallic funk note that I donít remember from my previous tastings. Ap: Pours a medium, slightly hazy amber/copper with a 1" pillowy cream head. T: Mild malt sweetness on the nose, nicely pronounced hop bitterness on the finish. Again, there is a somewhat metallic note that is a bit off-putting. P: Medium body, somewhat light carbonation. O: This was a bit off, which I donít remember from previous times Iíve had this beer. Iíll have to rate this again in the future.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2011 Bottle. Bought a six-pack of these and Iím in love! Orange color with a beige head. Aroma is hoppy...orange and grapefruit. Taste is sweet at first, with various bitter hints of grapefruit and orange zest to finish it off. Leaves a bit of a bitter aftertaste in the back of your mouth which I enjoy. Can also taste hints of caramel and bread. Depending on what Iím eating with it, I think the alcohol can stand out a bit too much at times, but for the most part if Iím just drinking for fun itís perfectly fine. The body of the beer is kind of oily, with a decent mouthfeel. Really enjoy this IPA, probably one of my favorites thatís easy to find around here! 7.2% alcohol.

Pours a thick, off-white head. The color is a honey-orange; heavy carbonation. Head lasts a long time. The head really is stupidly thick, wow! Impressive! The aroma is big, flowery and hoppy. Notes of citrus and grapefruit. The hops are sweet, with a touch of pine. The taste is herbal, earthy malt. Quickly followed by a sweet flowery hop. The taste is pine and grapefruit. Caramel malts work really well with the bitter resins. The feel is creamy and milky. A little bite on the way down. Sticky and long-lasting.

I already have had 2 six packs of this, and I forgot to rate. It really is a decent and smooth IPA. Well made and certainly drinkable for a beer of this style and strength. Reminds me a lot of their Southern Hemisphere Harvest.

12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy orange amber with a beautiful fluffy off-white head. Hoppy nose- piny and floral- but also a rich malty character. Body is medium-full but maybe just a bit too much carbonation keeping it from what is a great mouthfeel. Taste and finish are complex and right up my alley- sweet and sticky malts, caramel, piny and floral hops, a bit sweet and fruity- apricot?- as well as a citrus note- and this is all at a fairly cold temperature, canít wait to see it open up a bit. Definitely a beer I see myself continually coming back to- two thumbs up!

355 ml bottle @ Ravintola Gloria, Kuopio. Rated @ 23.10.2009.
Clear amber colour with a lacing white head. Aroma of fresh hops and lemon. Classic for an IPA. Flavour of fresh hops, grass and caramel malts in good balance. Medium bodied with a lingering bitter finish. Good.

SandK (44) - Arizona, USA - SEP 24, 2010
Pours reddish brown with a small and quickly dissipating off-white head. Pretty standard IPA. Easy to drink...average bitterness with a dry piney finish. Most dominant tasting notes are citrus and slightly stale bread. Not a favorite but above average for the style. K-2.7 S-3.4
