This is probably the 30th bottle of torpedo I've had, and I chose to review this one because it's the freshest I've been able to get since discovering how to read their bottling code--about 5 weeks old.
A: Pours a rich bronze/amber. Not a whole lot of head retention or lacing, but a swirl does reveal some nice bubbles.
S: Much different than the SNPA, Torpedo is all about the piney, grassy hops. Malt presence increases as it warms.
T: Ahh, fresh, whole cone hops. Delicious hop profile, sticky and resiny, a little alcohol heat as it goes down.
M: Perfect amount of carbonation, medium body which is right where I like it for an IPA. The generous amount of hops coats the palate.
D: This is easily the most drinkable beer I've found over 7% ABV. Right as I finish I want another.

Good sh*t. This is beer. It is a good beer. It is cheap, it is drinkable and this beer will get you drunk. My girlfriend had wine, I had this beer. I had others but this is the beer I liked most. I will order this beer again. It was a bit strong for my 8 year old, so we mixed it with soda water.
