3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Sparrow, 2/28/14
Aroma: The nose is Belgian yeast, spice, fruity hops, and little pine
Appearance: It pours a cloudy golden-orange color with a frothy off-white head
Flavor: The taste is much the same, yeasty and spicy, light sweet, medium hop bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, it has an average carbonation, and a dryish finish
This is pretty solid, on-style example of a Belgian-style IPA. The Belgian yeast flavors and the hops are both noticeable and work nicely together. Very drinkable. Very solid.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from Woodmans in Waukesha, release #11 - no idea how fresh it is although Epic just arrived in WI. Pours a muddy orange with an off-white head leaving a nice head with a lot of sticky lacing. Aroma has spices and citrus and pine, dominated by the belgian yeast. Taste is of sweet fruits, tangy spices, some resin and some toffee malts. Fruity and yeasty. Medium bodied and quite dry. Finishes sweetly spicy with light bitterness. Spicy dominated by the yeast, but with some other quality stuff too.

Release #11 Pours unclear strong orange, fairly lasting, good lace. Medium to white frothy creamy white head. Aroma is west coast hoppy; fresh, yeasty, fruity, citrus, light spiciness. Medium body, creamy super smooth. Very pleasant moderate bitterness balanced with just enough sweetness. Among the better IPA’s I’ve had.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at The Black Market Tavern. Appearance: large creamy white head, wheat yellow color, pretty cloudy, fantastic lacing. Aroma: very complex, wheat, citrus, yeast, clove, bread, yeast, subtle fruit. Palate: light-medium body, creamy and sticky texture, average carbonation, lasting bitter finish. Taste: sweet and slightly tart fruity like front like a wheat, with a building and building hoppy bitterness in the background that eventually takes over. Overall, really like it. It is well balanced and memorable; would be especially good on a hot summer day.
