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.

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2010 Torpedo is a great, affordable IPA. Much better than some similarly priced IPA. It’s got satisfying taste, but doesn’t quite have the satisfying hoppiness of some of some of the very best IPA’s. Still, with a punchy ABV, great taste, and affordability, this is an excellent staple IPA.

hangunder (247) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 28, 2014
Smells nice, sweet malt and some citrus/pine predominate in the aroma. Nothing too overwhelming or complex. Hazy golden color with a long lasting white head. Tastes very well balanced, upfront juicy hop flavors (peach, lemon), finish with a piney bitterness and a light caramel malt. Contrary to the nose which isn’t necessarily too exciting, this has delicious flavors lurking inisde. Medium bodied and average carbonation. Very well made IPA.

CacheManyHose (205) - HONG KONG - OCT 27, 2014
Clear light amber with a massive pillowy, creamy thick off-white head. Smells of deeply piney, resinous hop - so piney it’s almost minty/herbal - with background lightly spiced malt. Taste starts out with malt and piney hop, finishes on a big bitter resinous dry note. Body is very oily but smooth. Soft carbonation. Surprisingly drinkable given how bitter it is. Good beer, especially if you like heavy pine needle hoppiness.

One of my favorite ipa's. A nice floral aroma. A taste that is not overly bitter. But still has sufficient grapefruit and peach notes. Now I stop writing and buy myself another!

Kita (1127) - Koper, SLOVENIA - OCT 21, 2014
Bottle, 0.355l. Clear orange amber color with medium creamy off-white head and soft visible carbonation. Aroma of citrus, orange peel, peach, piney and resin hops. Tastes very sweet caramel and rich fruity syrup, but hops kick-off suddenly, then you can’t get rid of harsh astringency in your mouth. Bitterness is really heavy, but still not so pleasant as in many other US IPA’s. Full body, oily texture and average carbonation in palate. I’m having mixed emotions with this IPA. There are many better for my taste, although I’m a hop fanatic...

Pint can. Pours amber/ orange with an off-white head. Malt, citrus and piney hops in the taste and aroma. Great balance between malt sweetness and hop bitterness. Top notch IPA.

BeerViking (2585) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle from the Fuller’s brewery shop, amber-brown with a thick off-white head, nose is resin and aniseed plus a little peach and orange, assertively yet earthily bitter at first over a lightly toffee and marmalade malty body, becoming citrus bitter in the finish. A bit too gassy, otherwise excellent - like so many American brews...

Out of bottle. Average nose, but overwhelmingly balanced taste. Bitter, sweet, sour-fruity, all there, must try beer
