Christmas present deuce, release #52. Pour looked exactly like apple cider from a mill, hazy, dense light brown. Very thick eggshell head that was huge and settled to a quarter inch. Scent is subtle but what can be discerned is juicy citrus hops. Thick, frothy mouthfeel. Pretty evenly blended, a little more bitter than sweet. Bitter pine hop taste, not too strong though. Finish is more bitter an pretty dry. Good beer but nothing outstanding. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber sample at the tapless taproom in SLC. Mostly clear copper with a lacy white head. Aroma is hoppy, citrus, resin, honey. Tangerine, sweet peach, rock candy, caramel on the flavor. Very tasty, very balanced. Medium-plus body, nice resins to it. Most epic beer I’ve had here at Epic.

On nitro tap. Yellow with velvety white head. Fruity and hoppy aroma and taste. Nitro really makes this creamy.

Aroma is roasted malts, honey, tart, earthiness, funk and citrus. Taste is sweet malts, clove , tart and lemon grass. A puckering bitterness persists on finish but not overwhelming. Appearance is a hazy orange with a medium pearl head that retains quite well.

Draught at the Venice Ale House. Lasting off white head. Clowdy golden color. Mild American hop aroma. Resin you hop taste and good hop bitterness. Firm body.

I didn’t have this anywhere near fresh so take this as you will. Very well balanced, malt heavy, although a nice hop profile lingers in the background. Not a hop heads delight, but worth your time.

Had it on tap at Epic Brewing. pours a clear golden yellow pigment, with a white head and streaky sexy lacing. The aroma makes you thank the heavens for your ability to smell, it is a hop-gasm. The taste is smooth upfront dry in the middle and bitter on the backside. Sweet sassy molassesy kick me in the assy!!❣

On tap. A hazy orange with large white head. Aroma of citrus and malts. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Flavor citrus and herbal hops, good amount of malt balance, somewhat low key, it’s fine, it wasn’t my favorite.

Served on nitro tap in a pint glass Appearance – The beer is served a golden orange color with a one finger head of nitro driven foam. The head has a fantastic level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave tons of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the brew is big of an herb and grassy hop smell along with some aromas of citrus and bread. Mixed in with these aromas comes a little bit of grain and yeast, producing a rather inviting aroma overall. Taste – The taste begins with a rather nice smooth bready and slightly doughy flavor mixed with notes of an earthy hop and a bit of herb. As the taste advances the earth and herb grow slightly stronger and then maintain a presence to the end of the taste. Along with these hops comes some lighter citrus hop flavors of a citrus nature as well as some tropical fruit sweetness. With a little bit of grain and some yeast coming at the very end, one is left with a rather nice and smooth bready and hopped taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body is creamy and thick due to the nitro pour of the brew. For the malty tastes the feel was rather nice with the creaminess actually accentuating nicely the mix of hops and malt that are present in the brew. Overall –This was a rather tasty IPA overall. I had a nice feel, hop profile and malt bill. I enjoyed this one overall. I have to search this one out on non-nitro to see what it is like with normal carbo.
