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.

Thick foam layer. Reddish color. Hoppy aroma with some malts behind. The flavor is little malty and very hoppy. Resins, pine cones, some citrus. Long bitter aftertaste. Great american IPA

Pale amber, fine white head and lacing. Aroma isn’t really great. Some resin, some citrus, some honey, a little caramel and a lot of green apple. Beer is well balanced, medium body and medium bitterness, but the flaws in aroma are really hurting it. Welp, I wonder wether they had some unsuccesful batch, or the beer gotten worse during the shipping, but the product I got in the store is really disappointing (but not terrible, I just had really high expectations).

This beer was my introduction to IPA and with it the craft beer world. So its safe to say I wouldn’t be on this site today if not for Torpedo. Pours reddish amber with a whisper of haze. Head is small egg shell white with nice lacing. robust forest of pine and some orange zest aroma. Hops on the front, very smooth mouth feel gentle on the tongue for as much bitterness as it gives. very slight metallic or tinny mouth feel. A light honey after taste to make for a dry and bitter sweet end.

Lele (299) - Padova, ITALY - JAN 31, 2016
Squisita ed estrema IPA. Sentori dominanti di luppolo, nonché anche forti sentori terrosi e di frutti tropicali. Amaro deciso, che invita subito ad un altro sorso. Molto beverina e dissetante.

Estebanik (450) - Lublin, POLAND - JAN 28, 2016
Średniej wysokości, średniopęcherzykowa piana. Dość trwała, ładnie zdobi szkło. Aromat niezbyt intensywny, acz przyjemny - subtelny, zielony chmiel. W smaku fajny balans pomiędzy podstawą słodową, a subtelną chmielowością. Lekko czuć owoce. Owa chmielowość niestety przy finiszu przestaje być subtelna, a robi się odczuwalnie gryząca. Posmak przy finiszu robi się też nieco alkoholowy. Jest okej, ale niczego nie urwało.

jasonbenali (46) - Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2016
Pours amber to copper with foamy cream head. Mid-carbonation, clear and very nice to look at. Aroma is good, but was expecting more hop aroma. Lots of pine, orange peel, floral, mint. Quite sweet and full finish. Very nice, but not sure it’s much of a step up from the standard Sierra Nevada Pale. Got better the further I got down the glass, so temperature may be a factor - was only lightly chilled.

0,355 l Flasche. Orangerotes Bier, weißer Schaum. Sehr hopfiges Aroma, stark nach Früchten wie Erdbeere, Quitte, Holunder. Geschmack wie Aroma mit deutlicher, aber noch ausgewogener Bitterkeit. Hervorragendes Bier.

ogniskowicz (559) - POLAND - JAN 25, 2016
Jest ładny żywiczny aromat, jest trochę owoców, trochę karmelu i trochę...miodowego utlenienia. W smaku jest podbudowa słodowa (leciutki karmel), jest fajna goryczka, niestety znowu o sobie daje znać lekkie utlenienie. Przeciętniak, ale cholera wie jak smakuje świeże - ach te uroki picia IPA zza wielkiej wody. Loteria.

crhensel (144) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 23, 2016
12 oz bottle into pint glass. Poured rich Amber color with one finger head. Mild citrus and pine nose with a very smooth taste. Not as bitter as I hoped, but a wonderful piney and slightly lemony flavor is a good balance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Les arômes de cette bière me gênent. Il y a un côté traînant et pas très net, un peu savonneux. Pourtant, l’attaque est prometteuse ... Un peu décevant mais honnête tout de même. Je ne suis pas très fan de cette brasserie.
