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.

350 ml bottle. Slightly hazy amber colour, medium-sized white head that leaves a little lacing. Lovely aroma of grapefruit & other citrus fruits and floral hops. Caramel-malty, dryish flavour with a strong and long, bitter finish of pine, citrus fruits and hops. Delicious.

Lalli (243) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 19, 2009
Bottle. Lovely pale amber color, with a nice white head. Nose is fresh with grape fruit and malts as the dominant features. Flavor is very nicely balanced. The fruity hops are certainly the dominating force, but they compliment the malty body in a splendid way. All in all a very nice brew (as is usually the case with this brewer).

OzarkElmo (303) - Poplar Bluff, Missouri, USA - DEC 14, 2009
Pours a deep, hazy orange with moderate beige head, mostly diminishing. Aroma of hops and grass with orange, grapefruit, yeast and tangerine noticeable. Light caramel malt presence. Taste is fairly dry and very bitter, lingering after finish. All of this is done very well as a hoppy, yet balanced pffering. Excellent lacing through the finish - Cheers to Chico!

phaleslu (7546) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 9, 2009
12 oz. bottle from Ludlow Wines. Pours a somewhat cloudy orange-amber that is more gold at the bottom and more amber up high. Big off-white head that leaves some nice lacing behind. Hoppy aroma, with floral notes, pine, citrus, and caramel malt. Bitter hop taste with notes of grapefruit and orange citrus, pine, caramel malts, and a little soapiness. Bold and bitter with a bitter hop aftertaste. Medium bodied with average carbonation. This one gets even hoppier and more bitter as it goes down. Long aftertaste. Strong IPA.
