The colour was clear golden orange amber, and there was a light creamy head. The aroma showed strong orange fruit, and crisp bitter hops. The flavour was citrus orange, with passionfruit and sweet malt, there was a very intense resiny bitter hop finish. This is a very intense and quite complex style.

Bottle shared by Darrell. Thanks man!
The beer is orange and clear with an inch off off-white head. The aroma offers dank hops, citrus, resin. It smells a touch past its prime. IPAs are so finicky. Nice flavor. Hop forward and citrusy. Small amount of alcohol heat in the finish. Really solid. I’d love to try this uber fresh.

You could expect a hop overload. You really could. You don’t get that. You get a really nice balance of caramel/malt against a bunch of citrus things like Lemon, Orange, and take your pick of other exotics, and then there is a cracking hop bitter finish that lingers to remind your tongue just what happened in your mouth. Really nice full mouthfeel. Very very surprised
From a tap into a growler, and better than the bottle. He said quaffing another mouthful

Fantastiskt fruktig inledande smak, som övergår en tydlig humlesmak. Faktiskt riktigt god. I like a lot!

Bottle, thanks Eddan.
Clear dark golden with a small white head. Nice fresh aroma and taste of hops, grass, grapefruit, orange and caramel. The finish was bitter. A tasty one.

@ Eddan: mycket trevlig och frisk humledoft. Smaken är fyllig och fin med en god balans mellan frukt och humle. Mycket gott.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
Froma 500ml bottle on 18/10/2013. pours a clear deep golden orange wth a medium, somewhat uneven, head. Has a sublime aroma of passionfruit, lychee and other tropical fruits.This is an imperial IPA where the fruit dominates, with loads of orange, mandarin, tangerine, lemon and grapefruit present. There is a bit of caramel malt in the background, but it’s primarily a citrus war - sweet vs bitter fighting out an honourable draw. The bitterness is big and lingering, but it needs to be to provide the balance. The palate is quite syrupy and the carbonation medium. An Outstanding beer.

Bottle. Clear deep golden liquid with small white head. Aroma of citrus, tangerine, mango, elderflower, bread and pine. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter with notes of tangerine, mango, caramel and bread. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. On the sweeter side.

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

A: A mix of hops and malt, ur forced with seductive grassy hops, pine, citrus, tropical fruits, but there is also a background of crakers, candy and caramel malt. P: Golden with a shade of amber and a very thin head. T: This is a very tamemed beer, you get light hops (pine and grass) maybe a hint of pineapple, some pilsner mal and very light candy. M: Light body with a hint of bitterness. O: A hoppy IPA that isnt aggresive, I would of love to try this super fresh.
