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.

From a 500ml bottle. Pours orange with a white lasting head, big full citrus flavours, resiny and smooth with a malty aroma. Nice work.

Bottled. New Zealand holiday 2011-12. Old notes. The aroma has heather/honey and flowery hops. Clear, copper coloured beer with a slight off-white head. The taste is bitter, light malty, citric and flowery. Nice.

Malt heavy - masks the hops. I prefer upfront mega hops and way less malt. But I appreciate the high quality of this brew. Malt lovers rejoice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
6/15/2011 Epic Mayhem... Aroma: Toasted grains, toffee, honey malt, faint hops. Appearance: Nice amber color; frothy beige head. Flavor: Light toffee maltiness; honey sweetness; earthy, slightly floral maltiness; balanced bittersweet; nothing earth-sharttering. Palate: Overall: This is a very English-style beer; New Zealand needs to go back "down under" and find some depth and flavor.

Has a nice aroma, citrusy. Appearance was amber, not the best head, fairly frothy, but not bad. Very tasty brew, bitter and hoppy, quite a sharp taste, very full taste. Not too fizzy, about right, with a bitter but full bodied finish. I thoroughly enjoyed this beer, was very nice.

Bottle. Pours caramel brown with a nice fluffy off-white head. Aroma was quite hoppy with pine, citrus, caramel and some grapefruit. Flavor was sweet & bitter with fruit, caramel, citrus, pine and had some mild herbal notes with a lingering bitter finish.

Copper pour with a decent off white head. Nose is piney, peach, citrus. Flavour is malty, deep, with citrus and stone fruit, mouth puckering slightly sour/bitter which gives way to long but fairly mild bitterness.

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2015 Another excellent hoppy ale from the good folks at Epic. The only problem is the internal competition - it is intense - and there are a couple of their other brews I rank higher. Not something I’d ever turn down though.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2014 Color ambrato carico con un velo di schiuma biancastra poco persistente. Sentori di caramello, albicocca, biscotto e malto dominano aroma e sapore iniziale, al quale fa seguito un retrogusto fortemente luppolato ed erbaceo con un finale amarognolo persistente. Corpo medio, effervescenza debole, struttura parzialmente oleosa. Buona, ma molto "standard" e non eccessivamente complessa.
