Nephilium (1410) - Ohio, USA - AUG 7, 2011
(Release #13; 8.6% ABV) This starts off with an amazingly delicious hop aroma, with strong pine notes. Pours a clear light amber, with a full white head that leaves good lacing on the sides of the glass. Nice balance, even with the strong hop presence. There’s a nice blast of hops, then it fades to showcase the malts, and finishes with a long bitter finish. This is a good IIPA, and I’m glad that Epic made it to Cleveland.

Evolutionary (300) - Ohio, USA - DEC 11, 2014
Nitro tap at mellow mushroom. Color is way pale. Nose is hop. Nitro isn't the best for this as it smooths it out too much. Sweet but good balance. Not amazing but wouldn't throw out. Better than average.

VT (1666) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 11, 2014
Bomber. Pours a slightly veiled amber-golden with a short lived white head. Aroma is grapefruit, orange, lemon, caramel, brown sugar, grass. Flavor is orange, grapefruit, caramel, bubble gum. Finish is grapefruit, resin, pine, bitter. Lingering grapefruit and pine tree. Medium body, soft mouthfeel, average carbonation.

Casked in Las Vegas. Poured a reddish amber. Nice fresh hopped aroma. Well carbonated for a cask ale. Malt and piney citrus. Good.

Block (1489) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - NOV 14, 2014
This beer was good. I liked it. Strong hop flavor in the aroma through the finish. Sweet with enough malts to cover the alcohol.

dEnk (4034) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 4, 2014
Bottle @ home, tfs Vaiz! Aroma is big hops, big caramel, some candy like notes. Flavour is about the same, not as bitter but very hoppy. Nice one.

On tap at epic. Golden otamge pour with a snow white head. Good clarity. Highlights say ahop heads delight. Aroma is alittle lacking. Still, has light citrus nose. Smooth beer, some bitterness. Orange, and marmalade flavors.

DrunkSanta410 (312) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Taster at the brewery. Pours a clear copper color with white head. Lacy. Aroma is nice and hoppy, hints of pine, resin and a bit of earthiness. Taste is great, nice pine hops and a great malt backbone. Solid bitterness. A bit of sweetness, caramel. Palate is medium body, medium carbonation. Great beer.

jksipa (416) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 29, 2014
Release#101. Murky light orange with a tiny white head. Nose has tons of grapefruit and resin with light honey and a definite alcohol background. Bitter from start to finish with some light toffee and honey unable to hide the alcohol. Medium oily mouth with soft carbonation and a long bitter finish. Lots of hops but no balance.

kathouse (1106) - Nevada, USA - OCT 24, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2014 From the tap a very cloudy light brown. The thin foam had a subdued aroma of floral and citrus. The beer itself is outstanding. Tons of hop flavor without being too bitter. Hops last for days. Great way to finish a meal.
