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.

Pours a one finger off-white head that fades quickly to a ring leaving some lace. Hazy amber color. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied. Slight piney nose. Flavor is piney hops, not finding any malts, finishing with a lingering bitter aftertaste. The íextraí in the name is only a word - this is just an IPA thatís loaded with hops. $1.60 for a 12oz bottle from Beverage Warehouse Winooski, VT.

luttonm (4440) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 7, 2010
24oz bottle. Pours rich orange and clear. Carbonation is strong, aroma is sweet and malty. Hops are definitely there but not especially fruity or fresh. Beer is very malty and bitter, finishes tart and dry. Definitely a heavier dipa, bitter deep malting is what iíll remember. Not a favorite

jarow (237) - Massachusetts, USA - SEP 1, 2010
Bottle. Pours clear amber with a white head. Nose is citrus and floral hops with some caramel malts. Medium body, taste along the same lines as the nose. Nicely balanced. Alcohol pokes through towards the finish, which is moderately bitter with lingering floral and orange flavors.

wilderthanyou (758) - Guelph, CANADA - SEP 1, 2010
Enh, itís not bad, donít get me wrong. Itís just not as good as I expected, from what I have had, and the growing popularity of this brewery. It pours a dark golden\orange colour with a white head of medium retention. The aroma is kind of a draw back, cardboard and a stale sort of grapefruit smell, which isnít bad, but then there is this weird cheddar cheese sort of smell that kills it. The flavour is decent, standard, malty, hoppy, flavours found in most decent IPA, but really nothing unique or special. Not saying itís bad, itís just not that great.

devilben02 (281) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 1, 2010
Poured from a bottle into a goblet. Had a slightly cloudy copper color with a 1-finger foamy white head. The aroma is primarily a citrusy hop character. The balance of the taste is skewed decidedly toward a hoppy bitterness, but not too much since the beer has a very nice, crisp mouthfeel.

TaxiDriver (1678) - Stadland, GERMANY - AUG 31, 2010
Bottle. The smell of hops, very fruity, some bread. The small white creamy-foamy head has a very long duration, the cloudy body is orange. The taste is very bitter, a lot of hops, light fruity. The body is light to medium strong and creamy with a soft carbonation.

Nice smooth brew with great hop aromas. Definitely does not disappoint and will definitely drink again.

Part of the sampler tray at the brewery. Tought to judge based on two ounces, but quite enjoyed this one. My favourite of the bunch
