One of my into to craft beer beers. Wonderful balance. Not too hoppy and great for a beginner or a seasoned drinker. Nice clean crisp flavors and always refreshing and consistent.

Bottle from a 6-pack. Fairly underwhelming. Pours amber with thin head. Slight hop aroma, hop taste, overly bitter hop finish.

Bottle. Amber beer with a honeyed hop taste and a big bitter finish. The Civic or Corolla of mass produced beers because of its reliability. Its found pretty much everywhere, its a guarantee that it will be satisfying and it always gets respect in a joint where everyone else is just chuggin bud lights. If an establishments beer list is sub par then this is my fall back beer and that goes a long way.

This beer was bitter but not in a good way. I like a good IPA from time to time and like to think that I have tried some very good ones but in this case something just seemed off. The finish was bitter and almost pungent. Ive tried it a couple of times so I dont know what the deal is. This was for sure a miss in my book.

Tap. Poured light golden with a nice white head. Very well balanced IPA, highly drinkable. Not too hoppy, very smooth, light bodied ipa. Good stuff.

groovinhigh (170) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUN 28, 2009
Disappointing... I expected a west coast IPA with a big floral hop flavor. Not distinctive and simply not enough of a hop flavor. If you like balanced IPAs, maybe youd like this more than I do.

baraciisch (2957) - California, USA - JUN 24, 2009
Golden cloudy orange in color... Aroma much more subtle than the torpedo... Fairly piney, flavor of the hops is evident... Not terribly or overly bitter however, a gentle bitter finish... Good beer, like the torpedo better though...

Rciesla (5500) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JUN 8, 2009
Bottle and draft. Pours an amber body with a white head. Light citrus, floral notes, some light pine and plenty of malt. Nothing stand out.

Todeon (325) - SWEDEN - MAY 27, 2009
Bottle. Pours a orange/gold color. Aroma was the usual suspects pine,citrus and some caramel. A bit earthy to. Taste is hoppy with some piney notes and a nice malt backbone that creates a good balance. Bitter finish.

DerWeg (1598) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 24, 2009
Bottle at BeerBistro. Orangey gold, puffy thickish pour. Juicier fuller hops than the Pale Ale, a little more citrusy with some bite. Very frontal with a nice lingering clean finish. Fruity malt is very complimentary. Laclks offputting bitterness. I found this one bottle extremely good in an approachable way.
