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.

mcdav2154 (449) - GERMANY - APR 1, 2010
Bottle. Hazy golden color with tints of amber. After an aggressive pour I got a one finger white head. Aroma is citrus, hops, and grass. Taste is of bitter hops which stays on the palate long after swallowed. No balance in sweetness but thatís not expected for a beer like this. Very enjoyable and a great example of itís style.

Egon (478) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - APR 1, 2010
Bottle. Red-yellow with large white head. Intense hop aroma with some rubber. The hops dominate a bit too much and hides other aromas. Some caramel, bitter after taste. Good but there are better IPAs in mine opinion.

My apologies to the hopheads on this site, but I canít drink stuff like this. Poured a copper color with an off-white head. It went downhill from there for me. Smelled of pine cones and tasted like it. If this is how IPAís taste (this was my first) then Iíll pass in the future.

Pours a nice golden color with a white head. Scent is not as hoppy or fruity as the better IPAís. The taste is nice and clean. A better than average IPA, but not one of the better in my opinion.

asheft (2825) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 29, 2010
[bottle from bierzwerg.de] Inviting aroma of fresh citrus fruit, some strawberry, cherry, slight pine, and caramel. Almost clear bronze under an eternal, lacy, white blanket. Delicious: fresh grapefruit, subtle pine, spicy caramel are potent flavours harmonizing with assertive bitterness. Perfect balance. Medium body, moderate carbonation, slightly bitter grapefruit finish.

ROGUE (2152) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - MAR 29, 2010
12oz bottle. Poured a clear dark honey amber with a light tan head and nice lacing. Aroma is pine hops and sweet malt that has a citrus tang. Taste is rich, roasted malt that quickly becomes consumed by the fresh piney hops. Nice malt backbone balanced to a hoppier finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with mild resinous stickiness from the hop oils.

tmoreau (3266) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAR 29, 2010
Served from 12 oz. bottles to fluted fest glasses at Brixieís Spring Tasting in Brookfield, IL. with an orangy gold hue and frothy, off white foam to the head, and spots and ribbons of lacing. The aroma was light toastiness, with citrus, resin, and earthy notes. The flavor added a healthy dose of hop bitterness to balance with the smooth malt. The bitterness continued into the finish in a dry fashion. Not an "over the top" IPA, but balanced and tasty.

Ingevara (874) - SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2010
Wow! Yeah! Massive hops is no understatement. First time I actually thought of "too much" when it comes to hops. The overall impression is that of a bready sturdy ale, potent enough as a stand-alone drink, more difficult to match with food, but not impossible if you think of ribs, brussel sprouts, cabbage soup or salami. But IPA? Nah...

imaragingbull (572) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 27, 2010
Bottle. Dark Orange and hazy with short lasting head. Pleasant hop aroma with some bread-like notes. Well carbonated and zesty hop bitterness is well balanced with the body for the style and the lingering bitter semi-dry finish is excellent. Quite an excellent beer, but that is to be expected from this brewery.

Terminus (3446) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 27, 2010
bottled on the 43rd day of this year-so mid feb. pours copper hue with an off-white soapy head. nose is a little muddled compared to when its fresh (needs a re-rate of a fresh sample) with lite pine and mineral notes. flavors are lite pine and mineral notes as well in the flavors. palate is soft and pillow-ish. some herbal notes come out after the pine fades in the finish. I have had this beer fresh and it was a bit better than this sample. I will revisit for sure!
