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.

Pours copper with a nice beige head. Nice pine hop aroma with plenty of sweet caramel hops. Well balanced flavor, sweet malt and bitter pine hops. Creamy body, a good buy.

FishManLA (337) - Abita Springs, Louisiana, USA - JUN 12, 2009
Copper color with a nice persistant head. Floral nose promises a very hoppy flavor. Taste is very hoppy with strong notes of wood and pine with a hint of citrus and a slight tartness. Woody, hoppy finish.

12 oz bottle. Pours a copper red color with a decent white head. Nose and flavor flavor were primarily of piney hops, with some malt thrown in the mix; it’s decent, but not very complex at all. If you like pine flavoring, go for it, but don’t expect much else. I’m a big Sierra Nevada fan but I actually like almost all of their other brews better.

Diogène (1066) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 10, 2009
Bottle. Great citrusy and pine hop aroma with caramel. Slightly hazy copper with a huge frothy off-white head. Great retention and above average lacing. Flavor is also very hoppy mostly with citrus and wine. Also a solid caramel malt base. Medium to full body. A very good IPA for lupomaniacs.

Nate (3727) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 10, 2009
From bottle. Juicy pear and apricot nectars, fresh hoppy aroma with light sweet malt. Dark orange-amber clear with foamy off-white lacing head. Medium bodied with medium carbonation and light fizzy burn. Starts lightly sweet with some caramel and malty character. Turns into a good amount of bitterness with some tea-like taste, though not astringent. Fruity tastes, but muted. Sweet on the side of the tongue with light acidity and a good amount of bitter finish. Bitter chalky after.

hoppopotamus (260) - Santa Cruz, California, USA - JUN 10, 2009
A nice orange-amber beer with decent hop haze and a frothy off-white head that does dissipate rather quickly. Aroma is piney and grassy hops. Flavor is hops, somewhat fruitier, a bit citrusy (lemon and grapefruit, there’s a tartness there that goes well with the bitterness), and finishes dry and bitter as hell. It’s like a DIPA without quite as much alcohol. More hoppy than their celebration ale. Not much malt to speak of, but if you like hops you’ll like this beer.

gpekar (466) - Florida, USA - JUN 10, 2009
Poured a clear amber with a tall creamy off-white head. There was a good amount of carbonation bubbles rising in the glass while I was checking the appearance. There was a good citrus/pine aroma through the thick head. There was a good hop bite right off the bat with a good underneath malt sweetness to soften the hops in the middle, but it rolled again into a strong hop bitter finish. Flavors of pine and grapefruit were there. The bitterness on the finish was like that of eating a grapefruit. The head left very nice lacing. This was like a double IPA in hopiness. Very good!!!!!!!

SN is actually rather seductive with its "Purest of Ingredients" billing on the corner of its label, and it needs to be set aside as much as possible in aspiring towards an impartial rating.

KimJohansen (10349) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2009
Clear golden with medium white head. Aroma was pretty hoppy and had notes of pine and lemons. Flavour was quite bitter and had quite a few hops and grapefruits. Finished bitter.
