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.

@ Eddan: en mycket trevlig doft som har fin balans. Smaken är fräsch med tydlig syra fast ändå ganska rund eftersmak. Jag gillar denna nya humlesorten. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Vignale (1978) - 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.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2013 Bottle at Cookie. Hoppy with good balance. Aromas of caramel, flowers, grain and liquorice. Taste is sweet and bitter with long length. Palate is velvety and medium-bodied. Amber with a frothy head.

Davros (1859) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 11, 2013
Pours dark amber, very dark for an IPA. Nose shows tea, sweet clean malt, herbal hops, spicy malt and caramel. More sweet malt as flavours with some fruit cake and golden syrup notes. Also some peach and apple. Carbonation seems a bit full on.

As soon as the lid was off there was a vapour trail of green chlorophyll and hops straight up the nose. The beer itself looks coppery amber with a skim of off-white head. Closer inspection reveals tangelo, orange peel, sweet juicy tropical fruit. As a one-trick pony it is a pretty good trick. The favour is mostly the same with a slightly prickly mouthfeel and some citrussy oil and a nice twinge of bitterness, although the bitterness isn’t Epic-enormous as I was expecting. Lush and likeable, a bubbly redhead in a summer dress. Lovely.

Jaha så sitter man här igen och dricker en bra ipa, livet är lite för bra ibland om man tänker efter, så gör inte det. Det här var en trevlig ipa med en väldigt fin och fruktig smak med toner av tallbarr, grapefrukt och träighet. Kroppen var stabil men någon balans kunde jag inte riktigt känna av. Gott var det i alla fall.

Ok IPA. KAnske lite above average.. Rätt balanserad, lite oljig och lätt i kroppen.

Dark orange in colour with mid size off white head. Huge piney hop aroma. Bold hop flavour which is not too overpowering.

Maris (953) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUN 16, 2013
From a 500ml on 16/6/2013. Pours a clear deep orange with a smallish head. Has a lovely fruity floral, hoppy aroma featuring with some spices and lots of bergamot. Flavour wise, its fruity (including more bergamot) and spicy, with a firm bit not overwhelming hop bitterness. Has a medium body and carbonation. Really quite subtle by I PA standards but very classy and enjoyable, as is typical of Epic.
