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.

Picked up a six pack at Bryant Park Deli on 38th and 6th. Reasonably priced, only 1 buck more than Bud Light... which makes no sense to me. Assertive but not overly intense. Deep pine and oily hops. Not a bunch of complex flavors floating around, however still flavorful.

Chapel (468) - Levittown, New York, USA - NOV 8, 2009
Pour is intensely copper. There is some pine and bitterness all around. Lasts on the tongue for quite a bit. Pretty much a textbook IPA.

Big, creamy, off-white head. Aroma of pine and citrus. Pours an amber-brown color. Really nice mouthfeel with some creaminess. Good amount of hoppy flavor. A very good IPA.

thewolf (11383) - Kolding, DENMARK - NOV 7, 2009
Bottle, bought @ Systembolaget, Hyltebruk.
Pours brownish amber with a big, creamy, off-white head. Aroma has lots of pine on top of a fine caramel profile. Grapefruit, citrus and light apricot. Highish carbonation, really lovely dry mouthfeel with some lovely creaminess. Flavour is a lovely hoppy beer. Pine, grapefruit on top of a very good malty caramel base. This is really a super well-balanced IPA.

Hangover (1088) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - NOV 6, 2009
Ah,.. the citra hop. Has a piney aroma I usually equate with SN brews. Pretty complex hop flavor profile. Primarily pine, but there is a nice fruity,apricot aspect. Nice malty backbone. A pretty refined, hoppy brew. Very good!

SilkTork (5374) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2009
Cask@GBBF 2009. Lovely. Hoppy, yet clean and sweet. Reddish. Malt is a bit darker, robust and flavoursome than an APA. Good brew.

DonBirnam (108) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 3, 2009
Amber orenge. Citrus hop nosw. Big resinous piny hop flavour, with a oily, lasting bitterness. Underlying fruity sweetness balances it out and makes it very drinkable

bottled, pours crystal clear light amber with large tan head, sweet piney hop aroma, caramel malt taste with well balanced large hop flavors of citrus/pine, lingering hop bitters on palate though not as big as expected, very big tastes!
