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.

Clear amber with a thick white head that leaves perfect lacing. Sweet citrus and more of a pine aroma. Very bitter taste with pine and orange and is perfectly balanced with thick malt.

the best, most readily-accessible IPA i’ve ever had in my life. amazing, powerful west coast taste... fantastic aromas... but not overpowering like barleywines can sometimes be. it flies off the shelves up here in alaska. when it’s in stock, i stock up.

Bottle from Bottleworks. Pours translucent orange with white head. Strong pine hops aroma. Pretty mild but good hops, though not too bitter initially, but a long lingering bitter finish.

Bottle, Tewksbury, Mass. I love IPAs, but this one goes above and beyond the call of duty with intense pine flavors. No citrus, just feels like a walk in some damp, northern California woods. Excellent blend of soft carb and almost brutal hops. My favorite Sierra outside of Bigfoot.

It has a cloudy pore with splotchy foam. The aroma is mildly hoppy. The flavor is very hoppy, but not overly complex. Not a very pleasant finish.

Not as full-bodied as some IPA’s, nevertheless quite decent. Some green notes and citrus undercurrents, with a nice bitter finish. Excellent beer.

Bottle. Clear, with no obvious bottle conditioning. Deep amber, with minimal head. Excellent hop aroma, with pine and lemon predominate. Medium-light body, with a strong, resinous hop flavor. Not quite heavy enough for and IIPA, I guess that’s why its an EIPA.
