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.

One of my favorites from Sierra Nevada. Aroma is very strong, as the hop smell is obvious. Taste is amazingly hoppy, with a slightly sweet finish. Not so balanced as the hops stand out far more throughout, so one must really be a "hophead" to enjoy this beer. Overall, this beer is very good and , I will have in my frifge almost every time it’s available.

Pours a nice darker golden color with white head. Pine, citrus, spruce, and some grass on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with some floral notes. Not bad.

UPDATED: NOV 26, 2014 Vad var det som träffade mig i magen? Jo, en riktig torped. Härligt fyllig krona och komplex smak av humle och frukt.

355ml bottle. Copper, large lasting white head, excellent lacing. Aroma is very hoppy, lots of citrus and caramel, some grapefruit. Flavour is quite hoppy, highly bitter, moderate sweetness. Bitter mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation.
Finishes long, dry, hoppy. Nice and refreshing, love the hops in this.

A cerveja é simplesmente fantástica o único problema é que ela externamente difícil de encontrar no Brasil. Multo saborosa bem amarga exuberante nota 10.
