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.

Tap (rating from notes). Dark golden brown with an off-white head. A nice citrus and sweet hop aroma. Smooth and creamy with a dry bitter hop finish. Mildly grassy.

Chalsk (1104) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - FEB 5, 2010
Hoppy, grapefruit aroma. Pours an amber-red haze. The beer is lively. Thin head with some lacing. Creamy malty up front and then bitter and sweet on the back end. The malt and hops are well balanced. The bitters linger a bit. A very good IPA, but have had a few better - 90 Minute and Victory Hopdevil off the top of my head.

redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - FEB 3, 2010
Piney citrus hops on the nose with a grassy earthiness. Pours a pale amber with a thin white head. Very nice hop forward ipa, citrus notes with pine resin with a solid malt backbone. Refreshing IPA after a long night of work!

12 oz. bottle poured into snifter. Aroma is earthy hoppy grapfurity. Appearance is ruby red orange with white frothy head and soild lacing. Taste has grapfurity to earthy tones maybe faint honey which finishes dry. Palate slick watery hoppy feel with dry bitter notes. I really enjoy this beer good solid IPA for under $9.00 a six pack.

Silphium (3192) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 3, 2010
Slightly hazy medium orange-brown body, medium dissipating to thin, clumping off-white head. Citrusy hops nose with some pine and grass. Firm bitter, catty, resinous hops body with citrus peel and a toasty malt backbone. Hops and malt interplay create a citrusy sweetness cusped by the bitter, herbal finish. There’s nothing steroidal about this beer; it’s just a crisp, clean, relatively dry IPA.

foosnbrews (145) - Parker, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2010
Beer has a nice aroma that seems to fade quickly after the beer is opened. Aroma is citrusy. Beer poors slightly hazy and golden. White head disipates quickly. Taste has a sharp bitterness of citrus but it is quickly calmed by the malt which does not have a strong presence. The Palate is nice but a bit of a strange aftertaste remains. Overall the beer is a nice IPA which is enjoyable to drink

thechandler (593) - Charleston, West Virginia, USA - FEB 1, 2010
Pours a hazy golden-caramel color with thin bubbly head. Aroma is heavily fragrant of hops, sweet floral and grassy. Flavor is hoppy and bitter but not as blindingly hoppy as I had expected. Actually, quite decent with regard to balancing out the floral hop character with gentle sweet, earthy malt notes.

keith0718 (434) - Kansas, USA - FEB 1, 2010
Wonderful beer. Powerful lemony hops with a lingering, but pleasant bitterness. At moments, I wondered if the beer was too malty; but overall, I found it very balanced, but perhaps a tad heavy for a session beer. (Great Divide Titan IPA would be better for that.)

Bradrcr (806) - Renton, Washington, USA - JAN 31, 2010
8/27/09 on draft at Hopunion. Aroma is extremely citrusy with lots of grapefruit and a touch of grass. Appearance is copper-orange with a very well maintained deep cream head. Flavor is earthy but citrus, like an orange rind, with malt sweetness that balances well yet defenitely comes across as a distinctly seperate flavor. Mouthfeel is medium-full bodied with a medium high carb texture that lingers into a semi-starchy finish. Overall, the balance is lacking to make this easy drinking, but all the components are there.

mugabe (258) - SWEDEN - JAN 31, 2010
Bottle. Copper, medium head. Flowery perfume and grapefruity hops in the nose. Good, full mouthfeel, lots of hoppy bitterness in the finish. Up there with the best of them.
