Torpedo, an old standby when I'm feeling like a good beer that'll get me buzzed with my hispanic food.
A - A lovely golden brown with a frothy head and lacing that melts away as soon as it forms. Promising!
S - A floral yeasty aroma around this beer, kind of like fresh baked bread with a lot of edge to it.
T - The flavor starts light and slowly develop as the sip fills your mouth. As the carbonation fades away the beer becomes quite aggressive with sharp hop bitterness and yeast to give the beer a real bite. Torpedo keeps the citrus mild, preferring to give the drinker unrelentingly sharp bitterness...which is welcome for a change.
M - Opening up into an aggressive brew, it is definitely an acquired taste and not for the faint of heart.
O - Great for lovers of bitter beers, not for fans of wheat beers and light drinkers.
