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.

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, can’t wait to see it open up a bit. Definitely a beer I see myself continually coming back to- two thumbs up!

lusikka (7700) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 25, 2010
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.

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

Pours dark amber with a white head. Strong taste spruce hops, with a slight citrus note to it? Good beer, however the bitterness is a bit to much for me.

Little too thick for me, maybe old bottle but definitely bracing and resiny would have liked brighter hops but still wasn’t bad

Defreni (3006) - Husum, DENMARK - SEP 22, 2010
Flaske: Mørk ravfarvet klar øl med et lille skumhoved. Duften er af en smule gammel humle og en ordentlig gang malt. Smagen er igen en smule størknet humle, støvet med en fin bitterhed, men klart en skuffelse. Ikke clean and crisp som jeg havde håbet på.

12 US fl.oz bottle poured into my SN tumbler glass... The bottle I had was not too fresh, so that may had affected the flavour profile. This beer has a nice cloudy copper body with a rich beige head. Good head retention and some lacing. Looks absolutely beautiful and inviting! The nose is dominated by citrusy hops, with some pine notes still. A good solid caramel backbone, with hints of bread and toffee. Smells kind of sweet, but very IPA-like nevertheless. Wow, what a treat for my taste-buds! Starts out with a good hop bite, followed by a very juicy citrus flavour, with strong hints of orange and grapefruit. The finish is bittersweet, with some lingering bread and caramel notes. The sweetness is well-balanced with the bitterness, so you won’t have a problem with either of the two sensations. Torpedo is medium-bodied. The alcohol is pretty well-masked. The beer is smooth, refreshing and juicy! Feels great on the palate! The drinkability is good for a relatively strong beer! Goes down easily, provided you are used to hoppy beers! Drink in moderation, as the 7.2% ABV might get to you! All in all, this is my favourite SN beer, and one of the finest American IPA’s I’ve had to date!
