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.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2014 Hazy orange in color. Orange peel and pine. A good bit maltier than many IPAs. Crisp dry finish. Nicely balanced for an IPA IMHO.

Super big in hop aroma. Wonderful hops pretty big malty character as well. This is a big beer but not too bitter considering the intense hop aroma. This beer gets me pretty tanked.

This is one of my favorite beers to have in the US, just a nice IPA with a huge hop aroma and flavor.

La Torpedo est une bière de type IPA Une fois dans son verre, la Torpedo révèle une robe ambrée assez claire et une mousse assez concentrée. Les arômes qui se dégagent de cette Sierra Nevada sont des arômes fruités, aux agrumes et au caramel. Une fois installée sur le palais, on peut ressentir une bière bien houblonnée, à la fine amertume, et une présence finale de nombreux fruits et agrumes, ce qui donne une excellent équilibre à cette bière définitivement très étonnante et excellente.

Excellente IPA ! Un top !Même si ces goûts boisés, floraux, herbaux ne sont pas mes préférés, il faut reconnaître que leur présence et leur équilibre forcent le respect.Amertume longue mais pas trop agressive. Un arôme résineux très puissant !

The aroma is a little fruit and IPA’s otherwise typical hops notes are well packed away in a nice foam. The taste varies over light caramel tones and a slightly fruity flavor of passion fruit. The hops is American, is not as deafening, but instead it an exquisite fullness and complexity. Dry than with a long aftertaste. Very nice IPA.

Echon (96) - Århus, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2015
Bottle, 33 cl. Clear amber body with a foamy off-white head. Rich hoppy aroma with citrus and herbal notes. Some caramel, too. Full medium-sweet taste with heavy bitterness. Well-balanced and very tasty! Slight warmth from the alcohol. Light body with soft/average carbonation. Long hoppy/bitter finish. This IPA is a great example of everything good about hops.

Dark amber color with quite subtle carbonation. Relatively large head, which has good retention. Has a distinct sweetness to its otherwise very hoppy smell. Notes of malt. Not at all as big of a hop-sensation as I thought, with the hops taking a split second before making an appearance. The distinct sweetness of the smell makes its appearance in the aftertaste as it pertains quite long. Additionally, this is an incredibly smooth beer. So much so that the beer it reminds me the most of that I’ve had recently is Lagunitas Imperial Pils.

Cerveza bien amarga de 65 ibus. Para ser amarga y fuerte se siente bien refrescante. La probé en botella y en chop, la preferí de la 2° forma.

My go-to IPA due to availability at the local Sainsburys, this is a cracking little number. Big hoppy, nettly, herby, pine notes with a little bit of sweetness this is deliberately not a balanced IPA and I love it as a result.
