Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours a clear orange with a small white head leaving great lacing. Aroma is quite floral andzesty...really heavy on the citrus fruits like lemon, grapefruit, blood orange. Really hoppy and quite fresh in taste. Heaps of citrus and floral hops. Its just like drinking a hoppy fruit juice you can slam this down fast. 6.8% alc hidden well. Little to no bitterness, very easy on the palate. Was my Fav epic beer till i had hop zombie awesome stuff

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Monument in Concord, CA. Pours clear copper with a frothy white head. Aroma of mildly roast malt with burnt rubber. Med body. Flavor is mildly roast malt with burnt rubber/citrus. Never thought those were similar, but live and learn. Itís finishing hoppy and quite, well , hoppy. If you are a hop addict, this should be good for you. So how is burnt rubber good? Heck if I know, but itís working for me.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear amber to copper pour with a tall, creamy, chunky beige head that fades pretty quickly to a thick skim and leaves a little lacing. Lots of floral and fruity notes in the aroma, nice toat, cereal, juicy citrus and a hint of mango heavy tropical fruit. Flavor is very toasty and nutty up front, some pine, then grapefruit, passion fruit, mango, floral, fruity notes, striking me more as yeast related than hop a decent amount of grapefruit bitterness to the finish and a hint of anise. Medium body, creamy entry, juicy middle, moderate strength, blanketing carbonation and a crisp, off dry finish. Pretty damn good. It has a nice hop profile, though it could use more of them. I definitely have to wonder how good this might be in a younger state, as I doubt the trip from Auckland, New Zealand to Iowa U.S.A. was in a time frame quick enough to be IPA friendly.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light bronze copper.Very clear.Short head,light lace.
Mild-medium aroma of floral spice and fruit.Probably some sweet caramel malt. Light toast/breadiness.THe spice seems to stand out most overall.
Taste is very smooth slickish, very spicey/piney like hoppiness. Fairly dry somewhat crisp.Light sweet fruit/citrus. Smooth mild slick and clean and dry.Pretty bitter. Dry pale toast malt. Spicey earthy bitter with some citrus hints some grassyness.Pretty good but of a few others from Epic not to big on this one.Solid ipa though. Plenty of other 7% ipaís I preferr over this.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours with a crystal clear orange hued body with a medium sized off white head. Aromas are of crystal malt, caramel, melon, pine, soil, resin and tropical fruit. Low ester. A bit too much of a crystal malt aroma for my tastes in IPAs. Grassy. Flavors are quite bitter, grassy, low hop character, fruity, some minerals. Medium malt presence (less than the aroma), clean yeast wise. Bitter balance. Lively carbonation, medium bodied. Slightly underwhelmed, I was expecting slightly more from them.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark amber pour with thin off white head. Nose is caramel, grainy, resin. Zesty, citrus fruits, orange jammy taste, with straight up bitterness that takes a while to fade. I found the up-front flavour a bit overpowering but once the marmalade taste fades itís quite nice
