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.

12oz. pours with a creamy head that looks like meringue. golden orange color. juicy grapefruit and pine aroma. dry biscuity malt. a little cloying, but has a rich and solid mouthfeel. nice hopping all around both the bittering and dry hops providing the predictable SN style but with a fresh and lush twist. very good american west coast IPA. yum

Round mouthfeel, caramel and toffee flavor, moderate sweetness, strong hopping with late resins. Pleasant but not exciting; 1½ IPA. Solid brew.

2011-07-09, bottle, bb 15.03.12, hopefully 4 months old, 7-5-7-4-14=37
Beautiful amber color, bright; medium sized creamy head. The aroma is earthy, a bit sandy, not only hoppy; some pond water too. The flavor is quite good, toffee and caramel, dry; strong hopping, although the aromatic components of the hops are not so evident.
Solid.

2009-06-20, bottle at Nya Tröls, Malmö, 7-5-7-4-14=37
Shining orange-amber color, creamy head. The aroma shows some resiny hop, but I expected more. Medium body, good toffee flavor, quite round mouthfeel, not sweet; strong hopping, quite oily and resiny, not fruity. Both aroma and flavor are a bit creamy. The hops are more aromatic than large scale beers, but less than most craft beers. Strong final, a bit nutty. Not exciting, but very solid brew.

BrotherGrendel (787) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 8, 2009
Hazy light orange with big thick white head. Aroma of floral hops and sweet bread malts with a hint of citrus. Flavor follows suit with the big malts inching dominance over the more subtle grassy-floral-chalk hop flavors, finishes slightly bitter. Texture is medium-bodied and somewhat watery. Overall a decent single IPA with a good malt-hop balance, masked abv, and an overly bitter and chalky finish.

luv2brew (196) - Chesterfield, Virginia, USA - AUG 7, 2009
This is much more bitter than their flagship ale. It has a wonderful body, but is also extra bitter a la the name

leaparsons (8152) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2009
Cask, GBBF 09. Golden with a small head. Aromas are toasty malts with lots of peach and melon. Some toffee with pine coming through. Flavours are hoppy, floral and fresh. Green peppery and bitter pine with plenty of lemon and peach fruitiness. Sweet grapefruit with associated bitterness towards the finish. Strong marmalade notes. Quite viscous on the palate. Sweet, hoppy and very good.

RichardGretton (4259) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2009
Cask@GBBF, 2009. Dark bronze beer with a lightly hopped aroma and a slightly vinous and quite deeply hopped, bitter and lightly malty flavour. Overall an average IPA.

alagnak (467) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - AUG 5, 2009
Nose is grassy, vinous hops and a bit of apple cider acidity. Flavor is really solidly balanced: rose hip, and more of the bitter apple that moves into the standard IPA grapefruit bitterness on the roof of the mouth. FInishes crisp and clean. Really well done and highly quaffable. SN continues to impress.
