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 Joe Leighton, WHO ARE YOU? An unsolicited box and I cannot figure out who you are!! Pours a amberish pour with a light colored head. Aroma is full of citrus(grapefruit), resin and some malt are present. Flavor is nice and bitter with good grapefruit peel and a great backbone of malt. This was a highly enjoyable beer. Thanks JOE!

Pours a bright copper with a thin head and moderate lacing. Nose is hoppy and pine with some fruity undertones. Taste has a great amount of hops and recapitulated the nose, as well as adding bread and yeast. Mouthfeel is is opulent. Finish is a long, hoppy sensation that lasts a long time. Excellent IPA.

Skyview (5109) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - FEB 21, 2009
Picked up a sixer from Cellar’s Wine & Spirits in Shorewood, MN. Pours a clear copper amber brew with a thin off-white head that wuickly dissipates to a thin ring and film top. Aroma of grapefruit, tangerine, a hint of pine and some biscuit caramel malt, Taste is heavy bitter, medium to full bodied, with flavors of grapefruit, caramel malt, some pine, and orange zest. Finish is mildly dry and a lingering bitterness but does not shock the tongue very long.

Quite an anstounding IPA for the distribution of it. The color was a mesh between oragne and tan with outstanding hop filled aroma and the taste was almost perfect IPAness going down. this is a great beer.

Big grapefruit and pine, lightly toasted malt, caramel and some yeast in the aroma. The appearance is deep golden with a copper hue. The head is rather small but OK for the style. The flavor is like the aroma with lots of hops and some yeastiness. It also has a nice bread like aftertaste with a bit of soapiness. The palate is smooth. Outstanding.

cheap (3808) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2009
Killer alky laced volatile pine hoppy aroma. Orange brown and clear. Creamy thin head. Big bitter terrible flavor that torpedos the tongue from front to the back of the throat. Chewing on pine sap soaked green grapefruit rind experience. Oily soapy mouth coating palate. Long bitter linger that just does not go away, on style. heheheh

aroma is not as strong as the dogfish head but nice hoppy aroma. - nice creamy head - clear amber color pour. Lacing just sticks to the glass. Very good flavor that is bread like nice mix of hop and malt- very nice aftertaste- very good IPA I will have this again soon.

Six pack from Total Wine in Jacksonville, Florida. I was not looking for any specific IPA to bring home, but when I saw this available for the first time in Jacksonville, I had to bring it home. Pours a nice dark amber/copper color with a dirty white/tan head. Aroma is nice with citrus and pine notes. Taste is hops, an earthy tone with a very clean finish. A very good IPA.

Style; glass: IPA; tulip 12 fl oz x 7.2% ABV = 86.4 / 60 = 1.44 beers * 150 C = 216 calories (est.) Purchased at: Canal’s Lawrenceville, NJ for $1.12 Aroma: hops, citrus, stinging, and pine needles. Invigorating. Visuals: beautiful brand safe packaging, summer sunset, brilliant golden orange clarity, thinning white yellowish head, exquisite lace. Taste: starts sweet and bitter simultaneously, middle is dark with some roasted notes and lots of citrus, which lingers as grapefruit, resin, and tar. Palate: peppery, stinging, and tart, middles dull to a warming and a throb in the back of the mouth, the finish is dark, warming, and delicious. Overall: This is a spectacular, delicious, and superlative achievement. At this price, intensity, and quality, I have found my go-to daily bread. Sierra Nevada, you’ve absolutely done it. You are so hired. originally posted at: <a href="http://beercritic.wordpress.com/"&
