A - Poured into what I believe is a pilsner flute. The beer is mostly a dark copper with some orange highlights. An inch or so of bubbly head recedes slowly and leaves nice lacing on the glass.
S - I detected mostly tropical hoppy notes in this one, pineapple and mango mostly. There was some pine in the background and a hint of sweet malt.
T - Nice combination of the smells, but in reverse. The pine was much more pronounced, particularly on the finish. This one was nearly three months old, not sure if some of the other flavors have faded by this point. Torpedo is rounded out with a strong bitterness, but not one that over-exerts itself.
M - Medium bodied with a fairly clean finish considering how much pine I detected. Very drinkable.
O - Torpedo was one of the beers to convince me that the search for better beer was a worthy pursuit. Since my first Torpedo over a year ago I have found better, but few that combine the price, flavor, and drinkability as this one. It has, and will continue to be, a staple in my refrigerator.
