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 from Brattleboro Food Co-op. Nice amber body with thick white head. Hoppy nose with citrus notes. Quite hoppy. Nice texture. An enjoyable IPA.

Pours a deep copper with a nice tan head, decent lacing. Aroma is citrus, pine and resin. Excellent bitterness with a smooth mouthfeel, a slight sweetness on the finish. Very enjoyable.

Beautiful beer. Smells like heaven. Taste is excuisite, hoppy with a little malt backbone. Head holds forever, lacing is perfect. My go-to IPA, price is right. And man, that 7.2% sneaks up on you!

An amazing piney IPA that will ruin your palate with hoppiness. Delicious. In my top 5 IPAs and i’m a clinically-diagnosed hop-head.

Pours a light amber with a thick white head. It has a generic bitter hop aroma mixed with light citrus. The taste, likewise, is hoppy but not very citrusy. Not a bad IPA, but overall only decent.

leeburg (230) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - MAY 4, 2010
The most affordable "good" IPA in my neck of the woods. Deep orange amber, tiny suspended yeast specks, thin off-white head. Heavily hopped smelling, with potent pine needle and grapefruit peel, and flavors to match, with a somewhat dry hop punch. Quaffable yet sophisticated. Wife and I love this beer.

Bottle. Pours some kind of red-orange-yellow mix with a foamy white head. Smell is strong citrus fruit. Very biting, stinging scent. Taste has a sweet malt backbone with some hops on the tongue. A little pine would put this beer over the top - not quite enough for me.

cracklefish (108) - Ohio, USA - MAY 2, 2010
Copper pour with a lasting almost white head. Nose is orange, tangerine, melon and papaya. Flavor is herbal, earthy, citrus and almond. The malt is there but not real sweet. Bready, toasty and caramel notes as the hops move to bitterness. Finish is rubbing alcohol and peaches, almost perfumy. The aftertaste is gross!

Nalu (217) - Washington, USA - MAY 1, 2010
Clear amber pour with off-white head which fades quickly, leaving a moderate lace. Bread, toast, tea flavors from the malt whilst the hops lend a resinous and spruce aroma. Some tartness at the start and faint grass in the finish. Medium to heavy mouth feel. More balanced than most IPAs but not pleasantly so.
