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.

I just enjoyed this beer on tap at hollingshead. Extremely delicious! Yet, Pliny the Younger from Russian River is extra-ordinary...

A great very spicy, very hoppy beer with a lot of bite. Might put some people off. Just had one with a carne asada quesadilla and some very hot red chile. Numbs the tongue wonderfully, but definitely brings out the bite. My personal favorite

Nice dark amber-orange with good head/lacing. Aroma and taste is of barley and HOPS!!! The Hops can actually be tasted and linger in your mouth minutes after a sip. Just the way I like my ale/beer especially IPA. Outstanding. Another masterpiece from the great Sierra Nevada.

355ml bottle. Ticka ll of the boxes and hits all of the right spots. Sits perfectly in the glass with a dense head consisting of tightly packed foam bubbles. Rustic in colour with an aroma that assaults your senses in a good way. Packed full of hops and sweetness and you get just as much satisfaction from smelling it as you do from drinking it.. Hop flavours with a smooth velvety texturs that penetrates all parts of the mouth. Not just a beer but a whole experience.

Wow this is good. I love SNPA, but the added hop and alcohol really puts this on top. My favorite IPA.

This is an amazing brew! Definitely the best I've tried so far. I haven't tried many, but this will be difficult to top for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Love it since I bought! It contains a LOT of hop character without being a bitter king of flavor, it really shows what a great IPA is made from: lots and lots of hops but with somehow achieving a real balanced taste.
