Yeah, torpedo is a perfect example of balance, not huge malt backbone.

East Coast IPAs/older IPAs tend to have more malt, before the current craze of weed/funk/palate-wreck West Coast style took over the country.
Like everyone has said, the DFH IPAs are the best example of that big malt backbone holding up the hops like atlas. 60/75/90/120 for sure. Incidentally, I had a DFH Hellhound on draft and I was reminded of just how much delicious maltiness DFH packs in their IPAs (in this case it was cut a little by the tart lemon but it was still present).
Someone mentioned that Victory seemed to cut out the malt with their last two DIPAs and I agree. Hop Ranch is wonderful but a lil one-sided, which can lead to palate fatigue if you're having a few.
Their Hop Devil, on the other hand, is another great example of malt+hop synergy/balance.
West Coast I'll give it up to Alesmith's IPA and Pelican's IPA. "Creamy" is a word that comes to mind when thinking of those well-balanced yet big beers.
I agree with Surly Furious. Huge malt backing.
Brooklyn Blast has a nice malt backbone. Best beer I have had from them.
Any old, outdated or unfresh IPA should have a hefty malt backbone but I recommend sipping a nice fresh high ABV Triple IPA
DFH 90 - I'm drinking it right now and can testify!
evil twin molotov cocktail
I have a pit where I hold hostage some DFH 90 for just this stewing malty purpose.
There, I feel better now.
Burton Baton, which I just drank...

Maharaja was one of the more malty IPA's I've had, and its pretty good to my memory, very sweet yet hoppy.
It depends on what you mean by "malty". It doesn't necessarily mean sweet or under attenuated. You can have a beer with a high final gravity like Sucks or a beer that finishes sweet like Dogfish 120, but I wouldn't really call those malty... just sweet and under attenuated. Celebration has a lot of malt flavor, as does most of Sierra's IPA's.
Just about any IPA over 6 months old.
Racer X and Hop Henge. Along with a lot of good ones already mentioned.
