4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
(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.

Release 103. Pours hazy orange with lacy white head. Aroma of caramel malt and tropical fruit. Taste is mango and tropical sweetness at first with lingering bitterness. Palate is boozy, and both slick and viscous and a bit over-carbonated at the same time.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A nice hoppy aroma with plenty of citrus and pine with some faint floral notes. Mid to deep orange/ yellow hued body . The flavor was a small letdown for me, the malts were a bit to forward for my taste. Overall it was ok, but nothing i would try again.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This draft brew on nitro tap from a restaurant poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were very long lasting and left behind a uncarbonated transparent light yellow orange colored body and a creamy thick lacing. . The smooth crisp mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The smooth flavor contained notes of oak dry breads and hops. An OK brew just nothing special.
