Steeeve (327) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 8, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2010 Cloudy orange-reddish-copper pour with a pretty nice fluffy white head that leaves lots of lacing rings. Unexpectedly, the sweet malt aroma is the first thing I noticed. Caramel and bready malts are accented nicely by loads of citrus hops. Flavor is more grassy than the aroma, but still bursting with citrus hop flavor. Slightly herbal, almost like tea. Malt flavor is doughy, not as caramel-centric as it smelled. Mouthfeel is very lively, maybe a little too carbonated. Very balanced beer, not too sweet and not just a hop bomb. Very easy drinking as far as IPAs are concerned, but Im not sure I understand why its considered one of the best out there.

Caskalefan (168) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - NOV 2, 2010
Celebration was my go-to beer of the 80s-early 90s, and Torpedo eclipses it. Beautiful honey/amber color, creamy, but sprightly body, super-complex aroma that is even juicier than Celebrations. Citrus rind, grapefruit, resin, apricot, strawberry jam, apple, pepper, and just a touch of ashyness in the long, earthy, spicy hop finish.

dynamiteninja (1844) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2010
Bottle. Thin off-white head, amber-copper body. Juicy malt, plenty of grapefruit hops. Pine and herbs. Citrus. The biscuit and alcohol coming through, followed by strawberry jam and apricots and finally fruits. Nice bitter flavour with some sweet notes. A bitter dry finish, moderate carbonation. Basically just a"bigger" version of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.

possumjc (149) - Charleston - Mt Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - OCT 31, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours a nice amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is mostly hops. Not as hoppy as I imagined it would be. There is a good hops flavor but something just seems lacking. Not a bad beer by any means but not great either.

MadIndian (2743) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2010
Sample from my brother law Bobs cooler. A nice golden pour with big aromas of hops and grass. Flavor of citrus, pine and grapefruit, all in a magnificent blend. Really good.

Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - OCT 28, 2010
The beer pours a nice orange color with a cream-colored head. The aroma is very fruity. I get a lot of papaya and mango, but I also get some bready malt notes. The flavor is also very fruity. In addition to the papaya, I get some orange citrus. The beer is very juicy tastings. There is a little bit of bready malt. Low bitterness. A nicely balanced IPA that has a ton of fruit flavor, but not too much bitterness of malty sweetness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

MissouriBrent (122) - Missouri, USA - OCT 28, 2010
Good floral hop aroma. Pours orange red color with good head that dissipates fairly quickly. Tons of hop flavor. Lots of hop bitterness in the aftertaste. A little sweet on the pallet even with the massive amount of hops. This is a beer for hop lovers. Good stuff.

Stew41 (1967) - Phuket, THAILAND - OCT 26, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2011 I find it a bit hard to meaningfully distinguish between US IPAs but this is a good as any Ive had recently. Beautiful glowing orange in colour with a thin head. Nose shows plenty of fruit sweetness together with a harder hop note. Very clean. Plenty of punch in the palate but theres a layer or herbal sweetness that never disappears. Drives the palate really well. Palate dries up on the finish as the resin hops become more noticable.

Bottle (22/10/10). Floral notes in the nose and some pine in there as well. Strongly hopped and very dry, lemony finish. Peppery/spicy palate.
