COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We have set out to wilfully maim and cripple the palates of the most extreme hop head. This act of wanton destruction is in the true spirit of what festive brews are about, to create something unique and fun. It is our intention to create a violent and needless disturbance in your olfactory senses. The riotous confusion, from the unnatural quantity of dry hopping, will leave your palate satisfyingly violated after having just one taste. Only the brave can be assured to tame this hop insanity.

Bottle (500ml) with expiry of 14/11/13. Appears copper-amber with a fluffy cream-white head that shows good retention and lacing. Strong fruity aromas of pineapple, apricot, orange, cherry plus hints of vanilla. Substantially fruity palate with a big resinous dry hop finish that lingers. Lots going on here but still very smooth and drinkable. A lovely APA well worth seeking out.

UPDATED: APR 18, 2013 There is a note in the aroma and taste amongst all the peach and citrus that, to this noob, instantly makes me think of East Coast. Itís a very dark green note, a young conifer smell or something. Iím not sure whether itís from a specific hop or just from having a shitload of hops in general. The top-end sparkles nicely and has a good amount of air in the cymbals, but the bass and mids are slightly malnourished.Throw a bass and a low-register woodwind like a basoon into the mix to get a bit of warm wind among the pines and this beer will be closer to a 5.

500mL bottle. Pours deep blood orange with a small offwhite head and an amazing stone fruit (cherries/peach) + toffee aroma. This beer has a very complex flavour. Perfume, citrus and herbal notes all mix extremely well with the evident darker malts.

Best to be drunk from a Spiegelau 350ml beer glass(like a big wine tasting glass) to release itís full potential, one of the worlds truly great APAs. We are so lucky to have such a great selection of robust, flavoursome, interesting boutique beer like this in New Zealand. Not a beer for lionredcoronadbheinekenbecksgrolshspeightsmacs lovers - just too much flavour for those poor souls.

Solid beer. Good hop presence and a lovely rolling bitterness. This is not bad.

stoutnick (563) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2013
Ruby brown with an aroma of hops! hops! hops! and some malt. Taste is bitter bite like a hoppy ipa. Some malt character in the midst of the big hops. Lingering bitterness. Feels like a less quality arrogant bastard.

Bottle from slow beer. Pours a golden with a disappearing white head. Lots of floral hops in the nose. Some apricot and grapefruit in there too along with Biscuit malt. Taste is quite malty with an apricot sweetness. Low carbonation. Easy drinking stuff. More of an ipa than a strong ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mid-amber with slight white head and hop hazy with a resinous pithy nose,clean hop profile and bite with balancing malt and a long resinous finish. Epic seem to be the Kernel of the southern hemisphere

It's like drinking toast! Amazing toasty red malt flavours dominate with big but balanced hop profile and body. Epic are uncannily genius. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
