UPDATED: MAR 13, 2013 Epic are renowned for hops. However, far from being one-dimensional I have found both their IPA and IIPA to be fantastic and complex. Great flavour, luxuriant mouthfeel, and a magnificent aftertaste. This is a good beer!
Re-rate: Hot day, this is amazing I really like it. Really well balanced, and surprisingly sweet!

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2013 This is a beaut. Well balanced. Hops more earthy, less in the tropical spectrum but has both in spades. Would drink all day but would fall over.... 1st Nov - just love this - current drinking seems more fruity than herbal. Epic is... um, epic!

An excellent, aromatic and über-hoppy IPA from the fine folks at Epic. Easily one of the world’s best.

An essential double IPA, in my mind it is the best out there. Very strong citrus/floral aromas and strong hoppy notes on the tongue. Very clean aftertaste in comparison to other beers of this alcohol volume. Brilliant.

Hops, malt, and plenty of both. Far too drinkable. My fall back for hop cravings and probably my favourite beer.

A buzz of mixed citrus with a bitter hop aftertaste. Decent 2cm head with orange amber colour. Would be my pick as New Zealand’s best and a strong rival with the best from USA and Europe.

Brilliant beer, strong hoppy aroma but really balanced taste. Not overpowering and definitely doesn’t taste like it’s 8.5% abv.

500ml bottle. Seems extremely effervescent with a ton of bubbles escaping the etching on the bottom of the glass. It helps the aroma on this one burst. It smells like a number of Pipeworks IPAs. Big citrus, some mango, tropical fruit and the same sort of malt profile which is sweet but not bready. The flavor is great. Huge piney bitterness, floral sweetness, and some nice citrus. Amazingly this still tastes fresh, and it is great.
