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.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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!

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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
