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.

24 oz bottle. Pours golden/amber with lasting sticky foam. Nice looking IPA. Smells great too, pine, citrus, caramel and a bit of backing bubblegum aroma. Wow, I forgot how good this beer is. An initial sweet toasted malt gives way to a flood of minty, floral hops. Sticky, piney, resinous finish. Great IPA, from one of the pioneers of craft beer.

35cl bottle@home in pilsener glass@approx 8 degrees C. Pours hazy amber/brown with a creamy off white head with sufficient retention. First whif of aroma was resin or spruce quickly gone and replaced by citrussy hoppiness. Very well balanced taste with lots of American hops nicely juxaposed with plenty of malt and caramel malt for a touch of sweetness. Alcohol quite present, but not overpowering Aftertaste leaves a long lasting distinct grapefruit bitterness.A bit like a good grapefruit marmelade as the sweetness is also still pleasantly present. Full bodied and medium carbonation which quickly subsides. A serious well balanced beer to be enjoyed slowly and rightfully labled IPA as opposed to APA ’cause thats how it tastes. Good stuff!

ryanscourt (1065) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2015
Smooth velvety head with citrus aroma body. Flavor is mostly of woody hop flavors but the subtle citrus flavors make it pretty nice. From the leaders of the pale ale, the ipa isnt too bad either.

Amberish colour, cloudy and some creamy head. Tastes of spruce, citrus, hops and some krokan. Medium body, distinct carbonation without being too aggressive, and a lasting aftertaste of sprucy, bitter hops. Quite refreshingly carbonated and hoppy.

VertBaconStrips (2225) - Asshat, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 21, 2015
mostly spinny already, 1/3 left. Dark amber ipa with a thick light tan head that lasts and is messy. caramel, pepper bite, green, peach, not really all that fruity, bread, light candy. It’s more of a spicy ipa than anything which is nice, something close to cotton candy, pine. Very good.

Molt bona, bastant equilibrada, bons sabors a maltes I llupol sense pasarse. Pel meu gust molt mes bona que la mitica sierra nevada pale ale...mes potent I no tant subtil com la germana petita...
