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.

Jethro6191 (506) - Indiana, USA - DEC 29, 2009
Bottle. Pours cloudy amber/orange with a light fluffy off-white head that clings to the glass. Citrus hop, grapefruit, and pine aromas. Malt and citrus flavors with a grapefruit finish. Very nice IPA.

Archibaldo de la Cruz (1121) - FINLAND - DEC 28, 2009
Bottle. Amber colour with a lasting medium-sized white head. Hoppy aroma with notes of pine, citrus and malt. The flavour is quite hoppy with grapefruit and pine also slightly sweet, malty and bitter. Medium-bodied, aftertaste is long, bitter and dry. Good brew

rickgordon (3851) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 28, 2009
Bottled. Clear amber colour, with not the biggest of heads(poured cold). Loads of grapefruit, sweet orange and mandarine in aroma. Superb balance of hops and malt here. Solid malt base, with pronounced hop flavour from first sip to finish, with notes of sweet malt and oranges, with wood and pine in the end. The bitterness grows on you, and lingers long after. Not as brutal hop-kick like Celebration and probably more malty. Wonderful beer.

While buying craft beers as gifts, saw it and bought for myself. Now, my choice in IPA, if i can find it.

raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - DEC 27, 2009
Bottle 0,355 l. Clear amber, whitish head. Nose is beautifully hopped, citric and floral with some forest dropped in and even herbs. Flavor is crisply hopped, fresh and somewhat bitter without much sweetness to balance. Which is actually a good thing. Very nice.

hatchattack (255) - Virginia, USA - DEC 26, 2009
Bottle. poured with a light, fluffy head. when smelling the brew you get hit with a great rush of hops. The beer starts off very bold with the hop’s flavor and is completed with a dry finish. great brew

A- What a beautiful looking IPA. Hazy orange color, fluffy head, lacing down the glass, lots of CO2 bubbles rising to the top. Love the fact that a big giant in the Micro world isn’t stripping out flavor in favor of a crystal clear beer. Love me some hazy IPAs. S - Doesn’t explode, but nice aroma of citrus (orange), grassy hops with hints of caramel malts. T - Lots of bitterness giving way to some caramel malts. I wish it tasted more like it smelled...and find the hop flavor falling behind the bitterness and caramel malts. M - Very nice and sticky. Feels like it looks...not stripped out. High carbonation gives it a nice crispness. D - Very drinkable and sessionable IPA. This one is a keeper. I personally think it could have a little bit of the bitterness shifted to flavor additions (it’s not too bitter, but it’s a tad bitter relative to the hop flavor)...but it’s still a very nice beer.

elgiacomo (745) - Ringgold/Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, USA - DEC 23, 2009
Pours amber in the glass with a nice very light tan head, maintains a good cap and leaves some sticky lacing. Hoppy aroma but rather subdued. Flavor is much bigger, citrus and pine hops, slight caramel malt, bitter finish. Medium carbonation, somewhat creamy. Nice, especially for the price.

esox (1226) - Oulu, FINLAND - DEC 23, 2009
35 cl bottle. Slightly hazy, light copper-golden colour. Medium-sized head, neat lace. Big, hoppy aroma. Sweet mango, sugary apricot, sharp lemon and herbal pine in a good harmony. Some caramelly maltiness in the background but the hops really steal the show. The taste is sweetish and fruity at first but it soon turns to crisp and dry bitterness. I’d like to have a bit maltier body... Long lasting and biting very bitter finsih. The palate is medium bodied, perfectly carbonated and smooth. Straightforward but very enjoyable. Perfect after Finnish sauna!

TET (2494) - Kaarina, FINLAND - DEC 23, 2009
UPDATED: APR 21, 2016 A copper brown beer with a medium and beige head. Aroma is quite sweet, fruits, caramel, pine and resin, some grass and citrus fruits. Taste is strongly bitter, balancing caramel, pine needles, even resin, in the end the taste is again biitter and long, there are hint of fruits again. Nicely slippery and pleasant to drink. Torpedo fullfills the need of hops, strong and brutal, but some freshness and fruitfull would be great.
