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.

Bottle from Vinmonopolet. Pours a rather clear, golden copper-red beer, with an off-white, slightly creamy and slightly rocky head. Awesome aroma with fruity hops. It smells quite a lot like strawberry candy. Thereís also some malty aromas in there, but the hops dominate. No surprise there ;) The flavor is both malty and hoppy. Iím getting notes of red berries, strawberries, a hint of pear, some vague nuts in the aftertaste. Most of all the flavor is just íhopsí - that general "hop flavor" which I canít describe with any other word. Bitterness is dominating taste-wise. The body is somewhere between medium and full, Iíd say, and the finish is dry. Nothing wrong with this beer, but to me itís overall a bit disappointing.

ziobarba2000 (21) - Roma, ITALY - JUL 27, 2015
Bottiglia da 0,33. Birra dal colore ambrato e e dalla schiuma abbondante e persistente. Carbonatura intensa. Forte gusto agro/amaro con intensa luppolatura e sentori di melone. Finale estremamente secco. IPA molto "particolare". Consiglio 7/10

Bottle. Balanced aroma of malt, citrus and herbs. Lovely watermelon and tropical fruits. Long, but also comfortable bitterness. Big, great IPA.

mrjez (62) - Osaka, JAPAN - JUL 22, 2015
L: a nice clear darkish amber with an off-white head and plenty of lacing. S: Iím not getting any distinct smell, more a flattened mix of pine and citrus. A tad musty. T: more malty than Iíd expected, some dark fruits mixed with citrus somehow, hoppy bitterness at the end. Very complex, some amber or barleywine characteristics which are welcome. F: has a refreshing yet satisfyingly sweet and malty character. Not sure whether to neck or sip! Dry at the end, I like the flavours but would love them to whack my palate a bit more. O: I applaud this for surprising me. Not just another IPA, it takes some interesting turns. Would love another.

Intense hoppy aftertaste, palate a little frothy, slightly oily. A sharp and dry drink, immediately bitter.

0.33 l bottle from Alko. Amber colour, nice head. Quite bitter taste with citrus like aftertaste all this from hops. Hides nicely the hefty amount of alcohol. Goes well with salty fish, herring, for example.
