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.

kumite56 (471) - Cordova, Tennessee, USA - DEC 31, 2009
This beer poors a dark gold color with a rapidly diminishing off white head. The aroma is robust with floral hops and pine. Flavor is crisp, good malt backbone and lots of hops to compliments its dry and wonderfully bitterness.

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.

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 (747) - 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.

neongolden (531) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 30, 2014
(On cask @ barVolo, Nov 21 2014) Pours a dark amber, clear, nice big dense white cask head, tons of lace. Aroma has grapefruit peel and pith, spicy herbal hop leaf, Greek oregano. Palate sweetish pale and subtly caramel malt, orange, grapefruit peel, maybe canned peach? In the middle, herbal leafy hops, a bit floral, moderately bitter and astringent but malt sweetness persists in finish. White pepper and herbal/fresh pine hop aftertaste. Mouthfeel moderate, slick, smooth cask carb. Though the spicy "green" hop character was the standout feature of this beer. I think the cask treatment probably flatters it for me, though I’ve not had a bottle.

RickReallyBrew (32) - Franktown, Colorado, USA - NOV 29, 2014
This is a top contender. The hop nose was not pronounced but the flavor and finish was totally committed. The malt flavor was delicious and not in the least bit wimpy. This is a great IPA. Not one that the hop overwhelms the malt and tastes bitter. The malt and hop are both robust and deeply satisfying. There is residual sweetness as well so it is not one of those dry IPAs that either skimped on the malt or chose such a high attenuation yeast as that converted every glucose molecule to ethanol

Amber color with a medium white head. Aroma is pine, hops and grass. Taste is bitter with notes of hops and citrus. Soft carbonation.
