COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A perfect beverage to relax with after a long day on the slopes, this extremely pleasant to drink ale has very minimal hop addition. The delicate Mt. Hood hops give it a smooth body with a bit of nuttiness and a slightly sweet malt at the end. This sessionable ale has some wonderful vanilla and honey notes that are well balanced throughout the drink.

BMan1113VR (7916) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 3, 2013
Batch 19. Pours with a clear, golden orange hued body with a medium sized, just barely off-white head. Aromas are of grainy malts, nuts, light plastic notes, grapenuts, lightly floral, honey. Flavors are of nutty notes, toasted biscuit, floral, a touch of citrus, unsweetened graham cracker, low esters. Malt forward, pretty sweet. Finishes with a medium bodied, medium-full carbonation. Decent, malty, somewhat session beer. A bit too sweet tasting and a touch dull though.

Ernest (7283) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 23, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2016 Bottle (SLC batch 56, 5.0%). Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy light to medium amber. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted nuts/bread, cookie, coffee), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, apricot). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. Hooray, we’re getting SLC-brewed versions of Epic in CO again! The Denver-brewed Epic versions (of everything, esp. this) have been clearly inferior to the Utah-brewed stuff, and I feared being so close to the new plant, I would never see the better quality stuff on shelves again. Glad to see that isn’t the case. Nice toasty-nutty malt (even a little coffee-ish) and good quaffing balance make this a pleasure to drink, if not quite all the way to exciting.

Dogbrick (11322) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 27, 2013
Sample from cask at the Big Tap In on 04/20/2013. Pours a hazy orange-gold color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of biscuit malt and hops. Light-bodied with flavors of bready malt, vanilla and mild hops. The finish is sweet with a biscuit malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

JK (5650) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - APR 9, 2013
Firkin Fest 2013. Light copper color. Roasted grain both the flavor and aroma. It has good palate, which I generally find to be true of Epic beers. Good malt flavor and it is good to see this style for a change of pace.

Mora2000 (6154) - McKinney, Texas, USA - APR 2, 2013
Yellow-orange pour with a white head. Aroma is full of toffee and bread. Flavor is similar with some bread and toffee notes, as well as some grain and grass. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

EdInSaltLake (727) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Caramel, bready malt aroma, with fruity English yeast and herbal hops. Nice balance of caramel, bread/toast, and sweet malt flavors. Can taste the cherry/apple-like fruity yeast, too. It’s unfiltered--so maybe that contributes to the flavor (which is tasty)? (Release #25)
