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.

Scent of pine and citrus hops. Flavor is pine and citrus, with some floral notes. Roasted toast and dark bread, bread crusts. Quite a bitter finish. Nice frothy head that becomes lumpy and a moderately chewy mouthfeel. There are hints of caramel and stone fruit.

Wow. Bought a case at a Publix by Sanibal Isalnd, FL and what a treat. Great flavor, thickness, hoppiness - it’s all going on. Not a good beach beer unless you can keep those badboy bottles in a lot of ice.

adster (203) - HUNGARY - AUG 17, 2014
Rézvörös színe mögött megszokott illatok húzódnak meg, melyek kevésbé intenzív, viszont annál természetesebb képet alakítanak. Fenyőágas, citrusos aromákkal nyit, melyekhez később további gyümölcsök, például őszibarack aromái csatlakoznak, hogy aztán ez az édeskés vonulat teljes mértékben átadja helyét egy gyógynövényes, bársonyosan kesernyés, kissé sós karakternek végízében. Nagyszerűen simulnak össze a jellemvonások, kompakt alkotás benyomását kelti, melyet leginkább akkor tudnék ajánlani, ha egy meglepetésektől mentes, klasszikus IPA elkortyolgatásához támad kedvünk.

I love this little sexy fella who smells grass, herbs, floral, and it’s absolute perfection to drink around 24 of them and really get a feel of the medium sourness that this beauty delivers. Love sierra nevada, would bang & marry for sure.

Nice Golden amber, white 1 finger head. Hoppy aroma with a slight smell of sweetness from the malt. The bitterness hits you up front, followed by a small amount of sweetness, the finish is bitter and dry. Very drinkable beer. Poured from a 12 oz bottle.

Wonderfully bitter, hard to tell it is 7.2. Super hop-forward bill, subtle malts, lingering bitterness and hop aroma and flavor. Slightly citrus-y, grapefruit, malt, light caramel. Hops slightly overpower smooth maltiness, but I like that. Nice lingering head from a bottle pour. Lacing, white creamy head. Golden amber color, pretty clear.

Great beer white head. Dark golden color. High bitterness perfectly balanced with the high hopiness. Moreish: hell yeh.
