4.38/5  rDev +5.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A: Copper body with a dense off-white head. Great lacing.
S: Big piney hops.
T: Dry and piney with a soft, biscuity backbone. Has an interesting zingy mouthfeel. Nice bit of gingery prickliness and wood in the finish.
M: Weirdly, with the piney hops and the prickly, scuzzy mouthfeel it reminds me of a heavily distorted guitar.
O: Not overly complex but satisfying none-the-less. Much better than its little brother. Just wish it was a touch sweeter. Some caramel would really bring out the flavours.

Drinking a 2.5 month old torpedo poured aggressively into a teku. Nice amount of head. Hops have held up well. For a craft beer that can be purchased at most gas stations, this is a solid IPA that can hold its own. Cheers.
