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.

UPDATED: APR 24, 2010 Bottled. Frothy tan head. Orange citrus aroma and flavor. Bitter unbalanced finish. Earthy floral tones. Overall sierra nevada’s regular PA is much better.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate citrus hops, tropical fruits, and a hint of pineapple. It pours a transparent amber with a small white head that fades to a very thin film. The flavor starts with a light tropical fruitiness. The finish has moderate citrus hoppiness and a hint of pineapple. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

How the hell have I not rated this yet? A fabulous IPA in my opinion, and readily available in my area...even better! Beautiful golden color with a frothy white head that lasts throughout the entire glass. Aroma is citric and peppery, loaded with crisp hops. Lots of pine needle and sap in the flavor, well-balanced with the malt content underneath. Finishes dry, clean, and refreshing. I could drink this all day long. Yum!

I can see it’s quite popular but just didn’t do it for me. Our friends over the pond do some brilliant IPA’s but in my opinion this wasn’t one of them. Strong hop aroma with citrus thrown in. Similar flavour, dry finish. Far from anything wrong with it, just not for me.

Headbanger (3386) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 14, 2009
12oz bottle 7/14/09 (Binny’s Naperville)-Pours a medium amber with a big loose off white head. Aroma of hops, pine, and malt. Taste of the same with some dryness and citrus thrown in. This medium bodied brew is very well balanced and quite refreshing. Great job.

Pours clear bronze with a dense and sudsy tan head. The aroma has lots of hops (earthy, piny and good amount of citrus) with some toasted malt. It is very hop heavy, but there is still a bit of balance. Medium rough grainy body with some semi-soft carbonation. The flavor starts with what’s in the aroma and is much more hop forward and contains lots of dry grapefruit and some tangerine. The finish is hoppy and very dry. Great enjoyable beer.

SpringsLicker (3169) - Tennessee, USA - JUL 14, 2009
A tall off-white head sits above this clear, deep golden orange brew. Fragrant and perfumy, clean citrus and fruit aroma. The flavor is well balanced with a bitter finish.

I thought this was a damn good brew but not quite as good as the Kellerweis. I had this at a liquor store sampling and the ladies kept em coming.

Has a clear copper pour with some red mixed in, produced an off-white head, not much carbonation in this beer, and this beer seems to be a little flat, I do not see any effervescence in the glass but looks pleasant and leaves nice lacing in the glass, I see lots of tiny floaties in this beer to, aromas of citrus and grassy hops with malt sweetness, toasted malt and a hint of caramel, some lemon and orange fruit essence in the background, sip has lots of hop bitterness with malt flavor that is almost even, flavor of toasted malt and some candy like sweetness, hop bitterness and malt are pretty evenly matched, hops may be a touch stronger on the tongue than the malt, mouth feel is medium with some creaminess in the mouth, might have been a touch flat on the palate but this was good to drink but I was a little surprised to see no or little effervescence in this beer.
