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.

Aroma: Floral/citrus hops with a hint of "dank" pine in there. Aroma is very strong, and malt is mostly hidden but you get a little caramel in there. Appearance: Amber, good clarity, moderate stickey white head. Taste: Floral and cirus hop flavors, great for an IPA. The balance is very much torwards the hops as it should be. Good caramel and malt backbone in the beer, but it really shows off the citra hops and gives it a great flavor and aroma. Palate: Clean bitterness, lingering hop flavor which tastes like tangerine and grapefruit. Medium body. Overall: A great beer which showcases the citra hops. It isn’t too over the top for an IPA, but for this makes it very approachable to somebody just getting into IPAs.

VictorSA (164) - NORWAY - DEC 18, 2014
Fin orangegylden farge med lettfarget, greit skum. Spennende humlearoma, mye tropisk, men også godt maltpreg. I munnen kommer enda mer frem, med super fruktighet. Mye grapefrukt. Så godt balansert som en bitter IPA kan være, og med god lengde. Fresh!

Bottle, 0.33l. Clear dark golden colour with medium, lasting, white head. Average carbonation. Aroma of citrus, pine and hops. Tastes sweet at first then bitter with hints of citrus. Strong bitter aftertaste. Overall great IPA.

Clear amber pour with floral aroma with citrus, and pine. Caramel and citrus flavor with a quick intense hop bite. Very nice beer.

Pours amber with a finger of head. Aroma is very fine to almost nothing at all however there are a few caramel tones evident. It's fairly medium bodied with moderate carbonation with a massive, harsh (in a good way) bitter finish!

MarkoNm (749) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - DEC 3, 2014
Pours a darker orange, clear, topped with a hefty cream colored head. Initially citrusy aroma, later develops into more pine, herbal and caramel notes. Taste starts sweet, some caramel, followed by immediate bitterness, some herbal notes present as well. Very nice, extra drinkable. Delicious.
