Very big, very hoppy, very good! Fruit and sweetness notes surrounded by bitter and dry finish!

This is truly what I look for in a IPA. Huge hops with citrus tones, with the bitterness that lingers. That kick in the end that adds a touch if sweet. Love it!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at Denver - a pretty abrasive, garlicky, soapy, bitter beer, even for the style - underlying, clean sweetness tries to balance, but it’s really the hop flavor, not the bitterness, that makes this hard to enjoy - Epic seems to most often favor hop profiles that impart a lot of sprouted garlic and other off flavors - Some of their hoppy beers I like, but many I do not - this is one of the later.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Floral and citrus smell and the mouth feel is sharp, but it hits on the borders of your tongue and taste a lot like the smell. Doesn’t taste boozey at all.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at denver taphouse. Pours a clear goldenrod color. Aroma is piney grapefruit. Flavor is grapefruit, resiny hops, not too syrupy, but the booze lurks ominously.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Shared bomber,(not sure of the release #) poured to snifters showing a clear, orangey amber color, with a light, bubbly layer of film on presentation, and dots & dashes of lacing. The aroma was alcohol presence, plus citrus, pit fruit, and piney resin. Ditto on the taste, with a medium body, soft carbonation, warming to boozy alcohol, strong, earthy & rindy hop bitterness, and a sharp, lingering & finishing astringency that didn’t produce a huge fan.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a fairly light golden color with a medium head. Aroma is light citrus with malts and a hefty amount of hops. Flavor is mostly roasted malt and intense hops. Warm in character. Palate is malt with a distinct hop finish that dissipates fast. Warm roasted finish.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
piney nose with some citrus, nice head retention, good lacing, cloudy appearance, very well balanced, alcohol well hidden, would actively look for this again!

2.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Grain silo smell, horrendous. The flavor is better. It is pretty acidic, large malt backing, citrus, pine, lingering medium bitterness. Thick and boozy palate. Not a bad flavor but not a good beer.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The aroma is hops - citrus/floral. Pours a cloudy golden copper with a frothy white head mostly diminishing with excellent lacing. The taste is bitter. The body is medium, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively and the finish bitter and long. Very Good.
