Have to say that this is one of my favorites.

A: Very nice white head. Light amber color with great carbonation.

S: Subtle earthy/citrus hops aroma.

T: Strong hops flavor with a nice citrus touch.

M: Nice mouthfeel with excellent carbonation.

O: Awesome choice for true hops lovers. Flavorful, but still smooth enough to enjoy.

As a home brewer, I do love hops. But, it's easy for some beer companies to just pile on the hops and brag about it. But unless the hops are balanced to work with each other, it is just a waste. Torpedo uses Magnum, Crystal and Citra hops, which work so perfect together. Excellent hop balance!

definitely a neo-classic....whereas the pale ale is a true 'classic'....solid on all counts

pricepoint is not an issue, but yet...it is! this is a STEAL!

key here is this is a BALANCED hop 'bomb'....a true masterpiece...not need for specific tasting notes

this is the sort of brew that will win many over, scare away the unworthy...

don't change a thing! but do offer seasonal variations of this....experimental Torpedo....yes, please
