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.

12 oz bottle. Pours a thick creamy head of good duration with attractive lacing over a golden (SRM 10) clear body....nose of mild floral and a bit of pine, but milder than expected.....taste is of mild sweet malt initially leading to lingering grapefruit tones, and then medium lingering bitterness....mouth feel is good with pleasant weight on the tongue and medium carbonation. The hops were not as large or assertive as hoped for.

blipp (6646) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - APR 4, 2009
Bottle. Pours orange amber with an off white head. Sweet hoppy aroma, primarily citrus and pine. The flavor is relatively well balanced, with sweet malts and citric and piny hops. Very good.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - APR 4, 2009
Ah, hops! Pours a wonderful copper color with a tall lasting head. Huge, just huge aromatics at play here smelling full throttle hop like a tormented dingo on a prairie dog trail. A solid malt backbone plays host for a plethora of hop infusion. Theres a bit of sweet malt essence which is well used to balance this hoppy creep. The brew finishes long and delicious for a hop head like me. I relish in the fact that it hits and exceeds the 7% abv mark.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 4, 2009
Pours a transparent deep golden amber with a stringy-lacing white head. Aroma of freshy grapefruity hops and some lightly sweet toasty pale malt. Body starts with good fullness and finely dissolved carbonation. Has nice malty sweetness throughout with the resiny bittering hops showing up more strongly toward a drier, bittersweet finish. A very drinkable and flavorful IPA.

sethdude (704) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 4, 2009
Pours orange with a medium head, medium lacing. Aroma is heavily hoppy with an undercurrent of caramel and mild apple aroma. Flavor begins with a tangerine note, moving to apricot, mild grapefruity notes, pepper, caramel, light toast, lemongrass, and a slight veggie note near the finish. Surprisingly complex and balanced in a style that has become largely overrated and poorly done.

Dorwart (2412) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - APR 4, 2009
Nice large frothy off-white head of fine bubbles. Settles slowly. Excellent carbonation. Citrusy hops aroma with a decent caramel malt background. Color is bright copper brown. Loads of graprfruit in the flavor with some spicy hops, grainy malts, some roastynesss and minerals. Alcohol is hidden very well. Lingering bitterness and grapefruit pith. Leaves a bit of pastyness in the mouth. A very good IPA.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 4, 2009
Clear golden brown with a nice dense white head. Citrus and floral hops dominate the aroma, but there are some mineral notes as well. Big piney bitterness, with little malt presence. Very dry with just a hint of citrus flavors.

HOPSHUNTER (742) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 4, 2009
Bottle. Poured a deep gold with a tall egg-shell head. Lots of hops in the nose, not much else. Flavor is very nice, hops, citrus, pine, basic IPA. What I liked about it was itís exactly as advertised "extra" not quite a DIPA or IIPA but definitely a stronger hop profile than most IPAís. Sweet and bitter finish. Nice.
