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.

thewolf (11881) - Kolding, DENMARK - NOV 7, 2009
Bottle, bought @ Systembolaget, Hyltebruk.
Pours brownish amber with a big, creamy, off-white head. Aroma has lots of pine on top of a fine caramel profile. Grapefruit, citrus and light apricot. Highish carbonation, really lovely dry mouthfeel with some lovely creaminess. Flavour is a lovely hoppy beer. Pine, grapefruit on top of a very good malty caramel base. This is really a super well-balanced IPA.

Hangover (1104) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - NOV 6, 2009
Ah,.. the citra hop. Has a piney aroma I usually equate with SN brews. Pretty complex hop flavor profile. Primarily pine, but there is a nice fruity,apricot aspect. Nice malty backbone. A pretty refined, hoppy brew. Very good!

2009 Cask@GBBF 2009. Lovely. Hoppy, yet clean and sweet. Reddish. Malt is a bit darker, robust and flavoursome than an APA. Good brew. [3.4]
Sept, 2015 355ml dark bottle, filtered, from Tesco. Wet leather aroma with milk puke, warm caramel and nettles. The result is nicer than it sounds, but not necessarily endearing. Sweet clean malt with a an attractive nutty quality. OK. Hops are assertive, bold and lively, but not aggressive. Slight burn in the finish is warming rather than painful. On the whole a little too much for my palate, and I couldn’t take too much of this without feeling a little nauseous, but in moderate sips over a reasonable period of time, this is OK. Good for hot baths and winter evenings with some sticky cake. [3.0]

DonBirnam (108) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 3, 2009
Amber orenge. Citrus hop nosw. Big resinous piny hop flavour, with a oily, lasting bitterness. Underlying fruity sweetness balances it out and makes it very drinkable

DuffMan (8942) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 1, 2009
Bottle, shared with Parksy and pitted against Firestone Union Jack. Deep hazy gold, bubbly white head. Similar nose to Firestone just not as intense, and a little sweeter. Equally hoppy as Firestone with similar character, only a little spicier. Mouthfeel is not as chewy and a little thinner. Equally bitter finish.
