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.

Aroma a nicely floral. Appearance is golden, cloudy, with a reasonable head that dissipates quickly. Quite delicious, a firm pine taste.

355ml bottle from ales by mail. Appearance is a dark golden-copper colour with a large creamy white head. Aroma is malty, yeasty with hints of toffee. A powerfully hopped taste with a well balanced bitterness and alcohol warmth. Very good..

Bottle at OMA Bistrů. I really like this IPA. Great dark amber color with a nice head and lacing. Nice pine, citrus, hoppy aroma and flavour. Well balanced with a nice refreshing and bitter at the end. I usually buy some of these for my house. Need to try this someday.

Aroma is a little misleading. Seems a little faint and lackadaisical given the stellar reputation for a widely available bottle brew, but upon drinking its character shows, especially in complex but easy-to-manage taste.

La birra si presenta in un color perfetto ambrato carico con un cappello di abbondante schiuma compatta. Al naso la birra Ť resinosa e pinosa con un tocco di caramello. In bocca si sprigiona una comunione di aromi perfetta con il luppolo in evidenza che non va perÚ mai oltre a quel che dovrebbe. Il corpo Ť pieno, la carbonazione perfetta. Il finale Ť lungo e secco con una sensazione di amaro rotondo in tutta la bocca.
