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.

Aroma and appearance are all that this “beer?” has going for it. It is in fact not really beer. It’s boiled hop water. I like cascade hops but my god, lets be reasonable. There may be alcohol in it but it might as well be from fermented corn sugar. The hops are so over powering no one would notice. Proof that if you put enough hops in sewer water, someone will drink it AND it will be popular in the Northwest.

BOLTZ7555 (2979) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 6, 2009
Nice pine-forward aroma with lemongrass and caramel evident. Beautiful crystal clear copper body with hints of tangerine toward the beer’s center. Ample carbonation results in a fluffy ivory head that left rings inside the glass. Flavor is ruby red grapefruit flesh, lemon zest, and a touch of honey. Bitter finish that lingers on the palate long after the last sip. Not bad.

In bottle, heavy copper on the pour, a very solid offering. Big NW hop profile throughout with all citrus and little to no bitterness. Achieves that delicate balance between weighty and immensely drinkable.

beerguy101 (5338) - Newark, California, USA - MAR 5, 2009
Tasted on tap at the Bistro Double IPA Festival on 2/7/2009. This IPA pours a medium orange gold color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, floral hops. A medium bodied IPA. The malts are caramel, fruity and sweet. The hops are floral and herbal. Nice balance. Nice orange and citrus flavors. Nice hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

ChazMania (659) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAR 5, 2009
Bottled poured into chilled pint glass. This is a very easy to drink and nice solid IPA. I’m surprised that it is 7.2%, it does not seem that strong. Good crisp fresh aroma with plenty of hop flavor. A great session beer and a solid one to use for introducing people to the wonderful world of craft IPA. I will certainly buy alot more of this beer.

Cobra (1100) - - MAR 5, 2009
2009 batch. 12 oz. brown, stubby bottle. Poured out a deep copper color, with a thick, sticky tan head. Tastes exactly like a lighter version of Bigfoot. Same mouthfeel, same hop profile, same malts. If you closed your eyes, you’d swear it was Bigfoot. Damn good beer overall.

That1Guy (2061) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - MAR 5, 2009
Crushed with Jakebra. Lots of caramelly sweetness on the nose, and some hop aroma. A little floral aroma, some grapefruit, but the sweetness dominates. Flavor is about the same. Was expecting more hops in this brew.

dwyerpg (4899) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 5, 2009
This is a pretty solid IPA. Nice aroma, and plenty of hops throughout. Amazingly, the bitterness, which is very strong, seems to stay at the same level, from the first sip to the aftertaste. A little bit more of the floral hops is all this really needs.

baraciisch (2323) - California, USA - MAR 5, 2009
Copper in color... Exudes a delicious hoppy aroma... Flavor is not as hoppy as the aroma would suggest, but definitely leaves a lingering hoppy bitterness on the palate long after swallowed... A solid beer, could use a little more sweetness a la the Dogfish head 90 minute IPA...

Bottle. Pour is an amber orange color. Has a long lasting white head that leaves lacing on the side of the glass as you go. Smell is strong pine and hop characters. Taste is bitter hops. A great IPA, you can feel the hops come out your nose when you drink it.
