COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This wonderful hoppy lager is a new addition to our ever-expanding Exponential (Seasonal) Series. The Crystal hops give it a clean spice while the Calypso hops give it a pleasant, almost fruity aroma. Easy to drink, perfect for a summer day out.

If you see hop in the name and expect something extreme you will be disappointed. That being said however, if you are expecting an easy drinking lager with American style hop overtones, you'll like this one. Easy on the palate, with a very light and refreshing flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BigBeer45 (1243) - Michigan, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Sampled from a 12 oz. can, this beer had a clear pale yellow-gold pour with particles floating in the glass, and gave a white one finger cover that receded to a very thin cover and ring, it left nice spots and partial rings of lacing on the sides of the glass, the nose had some grass and citrus hops with light malt, a little bread and some sweetness, the flavors were grass and citrus hops with light malt and some grain, some citrus and a touch of malt sweetness, the finish had a light bitterness with a little malt following, the mouth feel was pretty light, it had a little bit of a creamy feel on the lips and soft to average carbonation, it had a light to medium hops and light malt on the nose and mouth, not a stand out beer, it was ok.

Premium lagers aren’t good to begin with..Epic has done a good job trying to elevate it. Nice hoppy aromas and flavors. What a lager should be

Dogbrick (7669) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Sample at the tap room in Denver. Pours a clear pale golden color with a medium white head that evaporates steadily to an outer ring. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of grassy hops, fruit and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of herbal hops, fruit and biscuit malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a grassy hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

ajnepple (1999) - Clear Creek, Colorado, USA - JUN 12, 2014
22 oz bottle from Evergreen Discount into a 2010 Guinness World Cup glass. Bright gold and pretty clear appearance with a fluffy, lasting, bright white head and active carbonation. Aroma of toasted grains, herbs, spicy hops, grass and dried fruits. Similar flavor, crisp with moderate bitterness and a dry, lingering finish. Light bodied, amply carbonated, clean and easy to drink. Pretty solid lager.
