COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is very popular! Extremely complex and strong at 7.1% ABV. This beer is well balanced between the caramel-malt driven profile and the dry, supporting hops. Look for hints of dark bread and a slight fig or raisin taste all backed by a strong resin, but not overwhelming hop presence.

Epic IRA is my first from this brewery and it is the start of many. It pours a cinnamon red with almost no head. Aroma is fruity. Flavor is fruity and finishes bitter with the distinct taste of alcohol. This is one of the better IRA's that I have had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Oklar djup orange öl med ganska stort ljus brunt skum som oxå ganska snabbt försvinner. Doft: Humle, nöt kola, citrus, skog, degistive kex. Smak: Humle, citrus, knäckebröd, barr, kakao, havre toner och lite rostat korn.

larsga (6177) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 27, 2013
Medium beige head. Clear deep dark red body. Perfumy raisiny malt aroma with earthy tropical fruit notes. Dry-sweet perfumy resiny lacquer taste with tropical fruit and gooseberry notes. Mid-to-full body. Mild, slightly hot, rich mouthfeel. Dryish spicy wooden caramelly aftertaste with lacquer, pepper, and earth notes. Nice and drinkable, and fairly vivid. Could do with a little less perfuminess. (0.65l bottle, Systembolaget, Nordstan, Göteborg. Label says bottles are numbered, but only number I found was "Release #22".)

Peter_L (687) - SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2013 Flaska från Systembolaget. Mörkt kopparfärgad vätska med högt skum. Brödig, maltig doft med inslag av karamell och russin. Aromen avrundas med en spritig doft. Något söt i smak som balanseras med amerikansk humlebeska. Och så denna alkohol igen. Kort spritig eftersmak. Nä, tvi.
