EdInSaltLake (727) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Citrus/apple fruit; spicy; biscuit/cereal malt; some banana-like yeast character. Sweetish flavor, which comes through more in aftertaste (wonder if they used the Westmalle yeast?). Firm bitterness. (Release #2)

Bottle. Cloudy, deep gold/orange body with a big, frothy off-white head, mostly lasting. Aroma of orange, citrus, lemon, spice, light clove, toasted grain. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. Starts sweet, finishes with spice and bitterness.

onceblind (5726) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 27, 2015
Slightly cloudy golden with a thin foamy and very Lacey white cap. Lovely aroma of fresh cut grass and slightly fruity Belgian yeast esters, and a touch of tangerine. Lovely flavor, just lovely, with flavors of grassy leafy hops, clean pale malt, a bit of floral resiny flavors with low bitterness, maybe a touch of dandelion, and finishes dry and slightly dusty and estery. Very delightful.

On tap at the American Craft Beer Experience. Epic brainless IPA is a cloudy honey gold with a foamy light beige head. A nice bready funky. Belgian aroma, medium bodied and damn smooth. The taste is clean belgian yeast with some hoppy bite. Great.

On tap at Epic Brewing in Denver. Pours a hazy golden orange colour with a frothy off white head. Aroma is of citrus hops, slight spice, and Belgian yeast. Taste is moderately sweet throughout but balanced by a nice lingering bitterness. Medium body, smooth on the palate, and well carbonated. Overall a really unique and good IPA.

brenn79 (1744) - Idaho, USA - APR 10, 2015
22 oz bottle, my bottle reads release #23? Pours hazy orange with a huge at least three finger white head and cobwebby lace. Aroma is fresh hops, it actually smells like fresh picked off the vine hops, strong lupulin, citrus, piney, medium weight malt. The taste is very much like the aroma, there is a nice fruity Belgian quality, strong citrus, yeasty, sturdy bitterness with enough complexity to not be overbearing. The carbonation could have been higher, a bit soft. Decent, I assumed the Brainless series was all about fruit, but i guess not. After i posted my review i went on their website and looked up some stuff, i now realize this bottle that i am now drinking and rated relatively high was bottled on 8-25-14, over seven months ago. This still tastes good, assuming from the Belgian influence, but would love to try a fresher bottle.

On tap at Epic meet the brewer event at Watering Hole. Orange amber color with a nice soapy eggshell head. Resiny hops, grass on the nose with caramel, toffee and roasted malt present as well. Nice bitter finish. Well-balanced albeit boring IPA.
