One of my all time favorites, this was my default choice when buying a six pack before I started making a conscious effort to try more different beers. This one is a step up from SN's Pale Ale, with a generous dose of pleasantly tangy IPA bitterness and a higher ABV that normally makes one bottle enough for me. If I were stranded on a desert island with only one kind of beer forever, I would be perfectly satisfied with Torpedo.
