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.

Moderate bitterness, bready malt, hops are mostly piney but there are fruit/citrus notes. Good balance between the malt and hops. This used to be one of my favorite IPAs but after having so many great beers recently this just seems to blend in with the rest of the pack. Still a great choice though.

PowY (122) - - JUL 27, 2016
355 ml bottle. Pours orange with an off-white head. Very intense but nicely balanced herbal and citric aroma. Full body with a slightly oily texture. The taste is sweet with distinct bitterness that increases towards the finish but never becomes to dominant. Heavy malty backbone (caramel) in front of notes of ripe fruits (melon) and a decent hoppy finish. Very good beer.

mice (171) - FINLAND - JUL 23, 2016
Kirkas, punertavanruskea olut vaahtoaa runsaasti. Pilvimäinen kumpuileva vaahto on reilusti pitsiä jättävää sorttia. Tuoksu melko kevyt, makean karamellinen ja havuinen. Maussa greippiä, havuisuutta ja karemallista makeutta. Keskitäyteläinen suutuntuma ja aika tasapainoinen kokonaisuus, jossa ei ole humalointia ole ainakaan vedetty överiksi.

Ujdzie. Aromat bardzo przyjemny, wygląd ponad, a smak trochę kuleje.

LordBrew (187) - Ziemnice, POLAND - JUL 21, 2016
Wygląd -: ciekawy kolor, herbaciany, piana mała, drobno pęcherzykowa, bielutka, lekko zdobi szkło, niemal doskonale klarowne. Aromat - bardzo intensywny, totalnie tropikalny, turbo mango, melon, grejpfrut, lekkie nuty karmelowe. Smak - słodowe bogactwo przeplata się z intensywną goryczką, pozornie krótką ale posmak jest dość długi. Wysycenie powyżej średniego. Doskonały balans - słodowa słodycz idealnie współgra z chmielami. Goryczka intensywna, może minimalnie trawiasta. Posmak długi, zdecydowanie chmielowy. IPA doskonała - bezkonkurencyjna w swoim stylu. Pokazuje jak daleko nam jeszcze do poziomu Ameryki.

Orange color, unclear. Sweet caramel malt aromas, herbal and citrus hops. Taste mirrors the aromas, heavy on the sweet side, with some fruits. Hoppy, medium bitter finish.

It pours into a clear amber with an off white head. Taste is bitter sweet. The bitter bites the back of your tongue accompanied with a subtle sweetness appertaining after.

Pours a dark clear amber with a frothy, off-white head. Aroma of bread, hay, a little bist roasty. Grassy hops, light citrus, herbs. Taste is relatively sweet, dry bitterness. Body is medium to full thanks to the lots of malt shining through. Creamy texture, lively carbonation that is just right. Bitter finish with a slightly metallic after-taste. I really liked this one. The slightly metallic aftertaste was a little much and unexpected after the rich, creamy taste.
