12 oz pour. I don't get this very often because my girlfriend doesn't like the way it makes my breath smell (it's not good, I admit).
A - good looking beer, orange and gold with a nice thick head. Foam tastes like the bitterest flower.
S - yes, yes, this is a good smell. Very strong hop character. Smells a lot sweeter than it tastes.
T - wooh, very bitey. I like this beer because it's not a passive drinking experience. Every drink is very considered, and it's difficult to have more than one in a sitting because of the strength of the taste.
M - my only significant complaint is this. The strong hop and floral notes don't sit well in the mouth. The beer starts and ends strong, so it's not terribly dynamic.
O - good stuff. I prefer Celebration and their flagship PA, but Torpedo is an experience alright.
