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.

Pours an orange amber with a thick foamy white head. big pine and citrus aroma, very resiny. Definitely delivers the hops. Thick chewy hop resin taste, powerful citrus pine with a nice malt balance. Very good ipa and cost effective hop bomb.

12 oz bottle. Pours clear orange and aroma and flavor has a big hop punch. Citrus and pine notes dominate this brew, somewhat perfumey. Long bitter lingerness and a dry finish. ABV undetectable and very easy to drink. Good IPA.

12 oz bottle from a trade with Sammy. pours clear bright orange with a small white head. aromas are all hops, mostly pine hops. the flavours are all hops, mostly pine hops. i prefer layered hop profiles and stronger malt bodies in my IPA but this one delivers if you just want a hop bomb. thanks for the bottle Sammy.

WabashMan (1012) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - FEB 26, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2013 A very nice IPA, this pours almost the color of a blood orange, but with a more copper tinge. Nose is hops and citrus, and the flavor mimics this, but with additional flavors from a nice, bready malt which give the beer a thicker flavor and heavier mouthfeel. Very well done.

Bottle. Poured a deep autumn orange body with thin head. Aroma is citrus hops and some bread. Flavor has a sharp bitterness, citrus - lemon, and a bready earthy taste, lightly sweet. This is dangerously smooth.

BMan1113VR (7858) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 25, 2009
Bottle shared with ilovedarkbeer. Pours with a nice and large off-white head and a copper penny hued body. Aroma is hoppy, herbal and a bit piny. A lot of C-hops. Caramel sweetness too. Taste is malty and a decent amount of pine hops. Water like mouthfeel with restrained carbonation. I think I might like the taste of celebration better. I was looking for a new session beer with this, and I am not sure I found it.

Poured amber with a two finger head. The aroma was hoppy with a citrus background. The flavor was dominant hoppy with citrus, pine and earthy notes, and a prominent bitterness that blended well with the malty backbone. A very solid and well balanced IPA that is enjoyable.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - FEB 25, 2009
Bottle. Clear red-orange with small tight tan head. Incredibly bright hoped-up nose smells like pure hop juice and surprisingly few esters. Carbonation level is pretty high. The flavors actually seem subdued because the body is accessible and easy with little else getting in the way of the herbal hop character. No chewiness. Alcohol undetectable. Seriously nice hop juice. "SNPA on steroids" indeed!
