COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
So much beer with so little flavour. Conntemplating the blue pill? Wait! A new pony with a kick-ass facial horn. Power to neutralise poison from the faceless industrial brewing complex. No more green bottles, just green hops. No virgins needed to tame this. May contain traces of Alicorn.

ciaranc (781) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 19, 2013
500ml Bottle, Redmonds. A really dark copper pour, head doesnt last. Distinctive Mosaic nose - pine, resin, spruce, tropical fruits, pineapple, a little grapefruit and toffee/caramel. Flavour is sweet malt up front, quickly overtaken by sweet, fruity grapefruit bitterness. Light body, a touch watery even, hops are a little muted, I imagine the bottle is too fresh. Finish is short and bitter. Would like to try it fresh.

Vignale (1975) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2013
Flaska från SBs BS okt 2013. Bärnstensfärg som drar åt rött, klar, lågt skum. Typisk mosaicdoft och smak. Övermogna jordgubbar, välmogen ananas, persika och mango, jordig, mättad sötma, toffee och lite kryddor som kanel och torkad ingefära i bakgrunden. Medelstor beska. En av de humlesorter som funkat bra på egen hand och Epics single hop är inget undantag. Riktigt gott.

SaintMatty (5078) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - SEP 29, 2013
Bottle (Stockholm Beer Festival 2013) - Amber in colour. Pine, toffee, grapefruit and a hint of spice in the aroma. Tangy and fruity taste with notes of peach, grapefruit, apricot and toffee.

Brenhophead (531) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 22, 2013
500mL bottle. Pours clear golden with a big white head and a wonderful sweet tropical fruit aroma. A nice fruit flavour with a big resinous piney kick and a caramel backing.

maneliquor (2992) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 7, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours darker than expected - a clear amber with a small beige head. Good retention and lacing. Nose is clean cut grass, quite tropical and almost a dirty earthiness about it. I like it. Well balanced bitterness throughout this beer. Tropical notes all around with dirty, grassiness in there too and some sticky sweet resin to back it. Good stuff

jonnyguns (875) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 6, 2013
Bottle from mane liquor. Pours a clear deep golden with a small white head. Nose is very tropical fruit driven with light caramel sweetness and resinous. Taste is more of the tropical fruit hoppiness. Tough of caramel and toffee malt backing. Lovely mouthfeel. Not overly sweet which makes for awesome drinkability. Great ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brodies_Best (233) - Auckland Central, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 16, 2013
Pours orange amber with light head that fades quickly. Strong very sweet floral aroma with pine nut and mustiness. Well balanced bitter beer very drinkable. Tastes like it would go really well with a good stew.

Epic.... Is there a bad beer?? NO. Another great take on an IPA, although I probably prefer the Armageddon. Nice amber colour, nice aroma and tastes of pine, citrus and caramels. Of course a great aftertaste on the palate. Epic beer? Yes.
