The label reads "Extra IPA," but I can't imagine anyone considering this a DIPA. This drinks like an English IPA: hoppy, but not excessively so like so many American takes. I consider pale ales to be a boring style because the balance between hops and malts seems neutral to me; this feels like a hoppier pale ale. The hops are grassy mellow instead of intense bitter, with the malt is never far behind. Many drinkers comment on the "crispness" and "cleanness" of SN brews, and Torpedo is no exception.
I enjoy IPAs, and with so many microbrews predictably chanting "more hops!" in celebration of their next IPA recipe, this is a welcome change of style.

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.
