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.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2011 Bottle. Poured a reddish-orange that was a bit hazy with a medium sized off white rocky head that had very nice retention which allowed for some fair lacing. The aroma had a heavy dose of hops, a light grain malt and a horse blanket yeast scent with a nice citrus note that stood out rather well. It tasted moderately bitter of hops in the beginning and finished with a nice pronounced malty-bitter flavor that had a nice hint of citrus at the end, with the flavor only lasting a short time. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and watery yet dry in texture with a very nice carbonation. Overall a very nice IPA that had a well balanced hop-citrus flavor working for it. I have to say I kind of enjoyed this one and I am not even a hop lover.

Pours a clean amber red from the bottle. Foamy head that fades at rest. Nice steady dry hop palette with no real surprises. Smooth drinker for the ABV.

jstonerock24 (125) - Englewood, Ohio, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Pours a golden orange. Aroma is of caramel malts, grapefruit, and pine. Flavor is well balanced with malt and citrusy hops. I prefer a more hop heavy ipa but I find this very enjoyable.

tricksta_p (1066) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - AUG 29, 2014
Aroma of malt, caramel, tropical fruits, citrus, some pine, hops. Flavour is malty and fruity, a bit sweet, with a medium bitter finish. Very balanced and full of flavour, could almost qualify as a Double IPA.

An overall great beer from a solid brewery. More hoppy than the pale ale with nice body and finish.

Decent for being in a bottle. Not a strong scent. Does not taste like an ipa, more like a pale ale. Not a very complex flavor but a tasty one.

weordie (10) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2014
This beer had a very pleasant but strong hoppy taste. It had notes of caramel on the aroma. Didn’t taste like it was 7.2% which may end up being dangerous.

Amber color with a thick head that lasts. Light hoppy taste. Bitter after taste. Creamy mouth feel. Bitterness mellows with each sip. Overall a solid beer.

Creamy, well bitter IPA with a heavy but very pleasant hoppiness and a long, slightly alcoholic aftertaste.
