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.

Bottle. Clear golden pour with alot of rising bubbles and a thick white head. Very nice hop aroma with a taste to match. Some malt sweetness up front with a nice bitter finish, rather nice.

Good looking copper pour with milky foamy head which leaves some nice retention. Obvious piney hops are there to smell but as well as a lingering caramel maltyness which really comes through on the taste. The hop backbone is well balanced with the toasty sticky malt flavor. Fairly well quenching. Pretty solid overall.

Pours a deep copper color with a nice lasting head. Aroma is big on citrus and hops, with some caramel malts. Flavor is much the same, but a bit more balanced. Smooth texture with a bite at the end. A good IPA.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2009 Bouteille: Parfum de houblon résineux, avec quelques accents citriques. En bouche, oranges, citrons, résine et bois se partagent le haut de l’affiche, suivi de près par la douceur d’un certain caramel / malt et de quelques épices poivrées. Le corps est moyen, un peu huileux en bouche. Chaque gorgée en provoque une autre et une autre, et une autre... Une très, très bonne bière, et très accessible - en ce sens où son amertume n’est pas trop déstabilisante. (pour ceux qui n’aiment pas le style)

Pours a very cloudy orange/amber with a thin, soapy, off-white head. Great odor, sweet sticky hops. Starts off with a slightly sweet, grapefruity hop taste, like the regular SN IPA, but holy cow the hop bitterness aftertaste will kick your face. Great bitterness, I really like the aftertaste. Even better than the regular IPA.

pours to a copper body with very little head and a sweet floral aroma to it. The body is medium with a bitter hop taste that stays with you, all in all, the pine nuts are a good taste to blend in with the hops but this is a hair bit more bitter than i like.

One of my other "go to" beers that I drink regularly. I usually have some SN PA and SN Torpedo in my fridge and go between the two. This one is obviously more bitter than the pale ale. Still has a nice fruity and hoppy flavor. I always enjoy this one.
