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.

presario (4533) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - APR 19, 2009
Bottle in Seattle. Pours a golden mug with thick long lasting foamy head. Aroma of hops hits the brain. Woody notes with a light citrus. Flavour starts with a strong sharp citrus in a strong malty base. A well executed amped up SNPA. More malt. More hops. Flavour alternates between the woody hops and the citrus. Very malty and more hoppy.

HopBackDoc (473) - Hatboro, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2009
Pours a clear orange/amber with small white head. Nice hoppy aroma along with caramel. The flavor was surprisingly well balanced. All the hop flavor you would expect from SN -- earthy, citrus, bitter all blended together with a great malt backbone. The sweet and bready malts really worked synergistically with the hops to create a great brew with a medium body and dry finish. I didn’t realize the 7.2% ABV either. I am not sure what an Extra IPA is but I sure like it!

MJGG (924) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 18, 2009
Bouteille de 12 oz. Arômes invitants de houblon américain (résine, agrumes). Robe ambrée assez foncée, belle petite mousse qui tient bien. En entrée de bouche, un malt caramel bien présent se manifeste puis cède la place à une amertume de houblon américain tranchante. L’alcool réchauffe légèrement la finale. Très amer, mais l’amertume est très bien intégrée à l’expérience globale.

jujubeast6000 (854) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 18, 2009
Reviewed 4/14/2009 (Bottle): Pours an amber brownish colored body, fizzy and clear. Huge head, thick and creamy looking, foamy. Very lasting too. Sweet bitter hop aroma. Some pine but not off-putting. Softish mouthfeel. Good piney dry taste. Some grapefruit. Makes me want another, drying. Somewhat sweet, bitter aftertaste. Very tasty. Very balanced taste, just enough hoppiness.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - APR 18, 2009
12oz bottle. I’ve had a few of these before, but never felt like the time was right. Tonight, we dance. Amber color with a lasting white head. The aroma is hoppy with citrus and light pine notes. Maybe a bit of mango for good measure. The flavor is quite hoppy with a light caramel malt balance. The hops shine here though, and the bitterness just outdoes the malt. Good stuff. Medium bodied and smooth. Good shit for the most part. Nothing spectacular, but a solid IPA and I am very gad that this is coursing through the SN veins. The first couple of times I had this I thought that it was overly harsh and metallic, but it is quite smooth this time. This is sooo much better than St. Ides... Hop cleansing achieved.

decaturstevo (4664) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - APR 17, 2009
An ornage/gold pour with creamy white head and lace. Nice citrus hops dominate the nose. Flavor is very well balanced with malt to carry a very nice bitter finish. Medium bodied with very good carbonation. A beer I liked very much.

Bottle. Pours copper with an off white head. Aroma has a touch of malt, grapefruit, and some pine. Nice body, oily mouth feel, and incredibly bitter. Solid IPA. I liked it.

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 16, 2009
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (grapefruit, resin), lightly yeasty (dough). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Ordinary aroma, but pretty nicely textured and balanced in the mouth. While it’s "just another IPA", it’s definitely a bit above the curve.
