COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Made with classic Pacific Northwest Cascade, Centennial, Mt. Hood in the boil and dry hopped with more Cascade hops. Cascade aroma dominates the nose, so be sure to sniff it like a wine snob. Plenty of ultra premium Maris Otter malt and three specialty malts give the beer a nice smooth sailing biscuit like aroma and body, some sweetness, well balanced against 5.8% alcohol by volume.

This has a fairly strong hop aroma. A brownish orange. This is an excellent pale ale. A nice light bite and a good crisp finish.

Cask: Tangerine and grapefruit nose, subtle pine needle hints. Cloudy amber medium yellow head, good lacing. Soft carbonation. Orange peel, light grapefruit. Quaffable, decently hopped, good balance. Itís what you want in an APA. Versatile in food pairing.

drpimento (2221) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 23, 2013
Poured this at a good temperature with a colossal, cream-colored, foamy, frothy, fluffy head that lasts forever and loads of sticky lace. Color is a slightly hazy, medium amber with lots of bubble trails of many sizes. Aroma is fairly simple and fresh - Cascade hops and malt, with a bit of grass. Flavorís like nose and likewise somewhat simple, fresh. Hops are more apparent and longer lasting. Body is great although the carbonation at first is strong. Finish is like flavor, but the hoppiness makes the aftertaste a little medicinal. Except for strength, itís more like an IPA.

Sledutah (4665) - Utah, USA - MAY 9, 2010
Bottle from footbalm and timbo78, picked up from Utahís newest brewery
Appearance: Slightly hazy golden with a nice white head and nice amount of lacing
Aroma: Floral, yeast and some pale malts
Taste: Floral with some sweet malts
This is a great pale ale. I would put it up there with some of the best Pale Ales Iíve had. Well balanced. Crisp and clean.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JUN 5, 2011
A good copper pour and a lasting creamy head. Smells all nice and hopped up. Full nectar with creamy residual effers. A foundation of malty blubber is encroached upon by cutters from the hoppy kind. Eventually a balance is met and there is happiness in the hive. Good stuff.

Bomber Bottle from Total Wine Tucson. Nice cloudy pour with a thin head. Nutty yeasty with a hint of rasin and grapefruit. Nice balance of all.

kagent777 (6) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - AUG 21, 2010 does not count
22 oz bomber purchased form Epic Brewing in SLC, poured into a goblet. Appearance: Light hazy wonderful light golden. Slightly off-white head settles slowly to leave some patching with not much lace. Aroma: Pine needle and herbal hops with some citrus mingled into the light malty notes. Taste/ Mouthfeel: Not as hoppy as the nose. Light sweetness with the alcohol balanced nicely. For a pale Ale, this one has a good amount of body. The texture is slightly thick with nice average carbonation. The finish is sweet and somewhat long. The bitterness of the hops diminish before the sweetness. Overall: I am so glad that this brewery is nearby. One of my favorite beers from Epic!

portableparty (1909) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUL 10, 2011
Bottle. Pours cloudy amber with a creamy off white head that lingers to a sticky lacing. Aroma is funky hop nose with a earthy grass malt. Taste is very nice balance of herbal hops and sweet caramel malt and subtle bitterness throughout. Palate is medium and creamy with a subtle fizzy carbonation and lasting chaulky dry finish. This is another tasty brew by Epic and will definitly be buying more. Well done!

Used to be you could only get 3.2 beer in Utah. This Epic company is pretty good. Iím liking most of their beer so far. This is one of the better ones. A very nice pine and citrus aroma from a light amber pour with a lacing lasting head. The flavor has a nice malt sweetness to start and then gives way to a nice hop presence. Very tasty.

maxwelldeux (3580) - Everett, Washington, USA - OCT 25, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a moderate white head. I find the nose extremely malty, which I didnít expect. Smells very toasty with a hint of spiciness underneath. Slight hint of hops up front in the taste, but the malts overpower it on the back end. Interesting brew.
