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.

12 oz. bottle. A really nice golden amber pour, with a pillowy head that stays for awhile. Good lacing on glass. Aroma is simple citrus, flowers and pine. Taste is precise with the right balance of hop bitterness and sweetness. A nice offering that sneaks up om you woth that 7.2 %

Erzengel (5886) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 7, 2015
Smooth fresh intense bitterness with lots of floral pine. Round, sweetish with hints of malty. The aftertaste is piney smooth, intense fresh hoppy. Sweetish smooth. But not too deep or flavourful as I hoped.

Super big in hop aroma. Wonderful hops pretty big malty character as well. This is a big beer but not too bitter considering the intense hop aroma. This beer gets me pretty tanked.

La Torpedo est une bière de type IPA Une fois dans son verre, la Torpedo révèle une robe ambrée assez claire et une mousse assez concentrée. Les arômes qui se dégagent de cette Sierra Nevada sont des arômes fruités, aux agrumes et au caramel. Une fois installée sur le palais, on peut ressentir une bière bien houblonnée, à la fine amertume, et une présence finale de nombreux fruits et agrumes, ce qui donne une excellent équilibre à cette bière définitivement très étonnante et excellente.

Excellente IPA ! Un top !Même si ces goûts boisés, floraux, herbaux ne sont pas mes préférés, il faut reconnaître que leur présence et leur équilibre forcent le respect.Amertume longue mais pas trop agressive. Un arôme résineux très puissant !

The aroma is a little fruit and IPA’s otherwise typical hops notes are well packed away in a nice foam. The taste varies over light caramel tones and a slightly fruity flavor of passion fruit. The hops is American, is not as deafening, but instead it an exquisite fullness and complexity. Dry than with a long aftertaste. Very nice IPA.

Echon (100) - Århus, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2015
Bottle, 33 cl. Clear amber body with a foamy off-white head. Rich hoppy aroma with citrus and herbal notes. Some caramel, too. Full medium-sweet taste with heavy bitterness. Well-balanced and very tasty! Slight warmth from the alcohol. Light body with soft/average carbonation. Long hoppy/bitter finish. This IPA is a great example of everything good about hops.
