Bottle from Piccadilly on Springfield Ave, Champaign, IL

Poured into a tulip glass
Torpedo is a solid IPA from Sierra Nevada, bringing together high levels of bitterness, grapefruit, and some noticeable malt character and keeping everything in check and quite palatable. While I might enjoy a slightly lighter, fizzier mouthfeel, this was overall quite a good beer.
Pours a pleasant, 1.5cm, dirty white head that gradually fades to a thin ring around the glass. Leaves some lacing along sides of glass as head fades. Body is an orange-gold color, transparent, with plenty of carbonation along the sides.
Aroma of peach, pine resin, grapefruit rind, and balanced by light, sweet malts.
For the flavor of the beer, grapefruit mingles with pine resin and plenty of bitterness, with mild, cracker-like malt flavors arising as this washes across the back of the palate.
Beer is medium-bodied with fairly minimal carbonation, making this a bit sluggish on the palate. Resulting mouthfeel is generally smooth, though a bit turgid due to the less than desired carbonation. Finishes out quite dry due to numerous hops and residual sugars.

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.
