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.

Wow -- can you say "over-hopped"? This Extra IPA goes overboard with the hop aroma and flavor, nearly negating any malty tones in the beer. But is that a bad thing? Not in this case. The bitter citrus hops are like a depth charge and combined with a moderate carbonation -- itís an all-hands-on-deck experience that makes one of the best commercially-available beers. This isnít an IPA for landlubbers; its in-your-face experience and high alcohol (7.2%) will take you to Davey Jonesí Locker rather quickly if youíre not careful.

Beautiful orange with an off white head. Aroma is full of hop, pine tree and citrus. Nice full bodied IPA, high carbonized. Lengthy bitter finish.

Pours a clean amber red from the bottle. Foamy head that fades at rest. Nice steady dry hop palette with no real surprises. Smooth drinker for the ABV.

Pours a golden orange. Aroma is of caramel malts, grapefruit, and pine. Flavor is well balanced with malt and citrusy hops. I prefer a more hop heavy ipa but I find this very enjoyable.

tricksta_p (1071) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - AUG 29, 2014
Aroma of malt, caramel, tropical fruits, citrus, some pine, hops. Flavour is malty and fruity, a bit sweet, with a medium bitter finish. Very balanced and full of flavour, could almost qualify as a Double IPA.

An overall great beer from a solid brewery. More hoppy than the pale ale with nice body and finish.

Decent for being in a bottle. Not a strong scent. Does not taste like an ipa, more like a pale ale. Not a very complex flavor but a tasty one.

weordie (10) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2014
This beer had a very pleasant but strong hoppy taste. It had notes of caramel on the aroma. Didnít taste like it was 7.2% which may end up being dangerous.

Amber color with a thick head that lasts. Light hoppy taste. Bitter after taste. Creamy mouth feel. Bitterness mellows with each sip. Overall a solid beer.
