jefcon (1392) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAR 6, 2013
Release #2. Wonderful soapy yeasty aromas: spice, nectar, sandalwood, apple and apricot fruit. A little beery and astringent on the palate, but not enough to dampen one’s enjoyment of the crisp apple, apricot and pear. Nice drying finish, but long. Plenty of character and weight at 6.5%.

degbert (1130) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Bottle, release #20. Cloudy deep gold with a high, large-grained, lacy, cream-colored head. Nose is grapefruit, lavender, funk, and bitter orange. Lots of orange up front, followed by a slightly astringent and anaesthetic hops bitterness; carbonation is surprisingly low, and there’s not a lot of phenols involved. Relatively mild on the tongue compared to the nose. Finish is long with a treacly sweetness. Nice.

slowrunner77 (3635) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 10, 2014
"Epic further establishes that they are, indeed, Utah’s best brewery. Wonderful balance between dry, zesty, fruity yeast and light citrus and piney hops. No alcohol evident, great flavor but the aroma is especially nice. I could drink this all day."

phaleslu (6554) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 25, 2014
Draft at the Cincy Brew Ha Ha. Pours a somewhat cloudy orange color with an off-white head. Notes of grassy and floral hops, bready malts, mellow spices (white pepper), herbs, earth, and light funk. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation. I got this just thinking ’IPA’ and not ’Belgian IPA’ - so the other elements in there were a surprise. But this mostly worked for me.
