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.

Draught at the Bishops Arms, Järntorget, Göteborg, Sweden. Hazy mahogny with medium off-white head. Hoppy aroma on a caramelly malt base, with notes of pine needles and dried fruits. Medium bodied and smooth. Well balanced with an outspoken long bitterness.

Clear dark golden to pale copper color, huge lasting off-white fluffy head. Smooth, bitter, hoppy, citrus taste. Also fruity and sweet. Rather long bitter aftertaste. Smooth nice soft mouthfeel, rather high bitterness that doesn’t take over too much. Fruity, hopy and sweet scent, wouldn’t heart to have a bit more.

Marsiblursi (3009) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 29, 2008
(Draught) Pours amber with a creamy off-white head. The aroma is of grapefruity hops up front but the citrus spectra make room for some lime and lemon as well. The hops also bring some milder tones of grass, spices and floral/perfume-like hints. A touch of tropical fruits and syrup. A nice and firm toasted malt backbone balances the nose perfectly. The flavour is of grapefruity hops and toasted malt with some light and subtle fruity undertones. The finish is bitter and dry with resiny and citric notes. The mouthfeel is rather full and juicy. Light to medium sweet and heavily bitter. Medium to full bodied. Pretty hard core for a SN.

On tap at the Parkway Tavern in Tacoma. Cloudy dark yellow in appearance. Nice head if poured properly ( a few rounds came brim-full, which is nice for value, poor for tasting.) Great up-front hop bite, backed with really sweet malts. Melony, bubblegum fruit flavor is quite apparent, but there’s a lot of bittering working along with that sugar. The Celebration is much drier on the tongue than this brew. I really enjoyed this one.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2009 [Draft @ Pacific Standard] Poured an amber color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of pine, floral hops, caramel, grass, and toasted malts. Taste of pine, caramel, lemongrass, raw hops, and grapefruit, with biting alcohol in the finish.

draft at mellow mushroom. I’ve come to expect less than impressive brews from sn and this one holds true to the theme.

~Had on tap. I had to dump the beer into another glass to release the high acidic taste from the high carbonation. ~Pours a light golden amber color with small creamy white head. ~Crisp and powerful floral grapefruit hop aroma. Nice sweetness from the malts as well. ~Crisp bitter sweet hop taste. ~Medium feel, crisp clean bitter finish. ~I didnt really care for the beer until I got rid of the high carbonation. Then it was pretty great. I wouldnt recomend getting this on tap if you can help it. They add way too much carbonation causing it to be a very acidic tasting beer. My rating was made after losing most carbonation.

honeydo melon sweetness adds to the palate and refreshment factor of this fine medium auburn ipa. grapefruit rind bitter harsh but tamed to come on hard but slow. nice pine bark like hop accompanyment to keep it as intended. recessed carbonation and watery in palate as it would have to be with such powerful flavors. different, appealing and memorable...it is also perfectly named.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - AUG 6, 2008
Draft @ Flying Saucer - Nashville. Orange in the glass with a lasting, creamy, off-white head that left great lacing. Hoppy aroma but not as impressive as the flavor and somewhat subdued. The flavor fines lots of pine and grapefruit mixed with hints of orange, malts, and spices. Medium body that is sweet upfront and a moderate bitter ending.

Ughsmash (7147) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 6, 2008
On tap at O’Brien’s. Poured brilliant light-medium amber with a short cap of white head. The aroma picked up drier fruity and floral notes upfront along with some citrus zest.. this was over a generic pale malt base. The flavor found pale, almost bready malts at the core with pine, floral, and grassy bitterness surrounding.. nothing too exciting here. Medium-bodied, dry, and spicy on the palate with long, lingering bitterness on the finish.. OK feel.
