    Torpedo, really? What do you like about it?

  • http://www.digitalhitchhiker.com Brad Chmielewski

    Well it's a IPA so that's a plus right there. But it's smooth and very well balanced. A refreshing beer that makes for a great session beer.

    There's nothing not to like about Torpedo. It has such a unique hop characteristic including a big intense bitterness.

    Fair enough, I know that a lot of people seem to like it, but as far as IPA's go, I found it to be quite artificial and boring.
