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.

Very nice fruity aroma with grape, tropical fruits and interestingly enough some coconut, There are however some dishsoap aroma as well.
Nice clear amber colour with a nice but with bit to quickly dissipating head.
A bit to malty for an IPA and not enough bitterness the dishsoap and coconut make an appearance even in the taste.
Light body, soft carbonation with a bit sticky texture.
The aroma is nice enough but the taste is dissapointing and it could have been more carbonated. And Iím not sure about mosaic, all mosaic beers Iíve tried have had this dishsoap aroma.

Epic does simple really well, and this one is really nice. The malt is but an unobtrusive carrier wave for the beautiful hops, floral, citrus, all the right boxes are ticked here.

perhaps a little simple but still excellent, good citrus and hop bitterness with plenty of nice sweet malt to back it up.

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.

Mmm, simple. Not something that Iíd often say about an Epic beer, but this one is simple. Clean, bright, fresh, consistent flavour throughout. Pours deep copper with a thin white head, the foam dissolving quickly with a great big lemon and pine hop explosion. In the mouth the lemon flavour comes along even stronger; thereís a sweetness that carries the hoppiness deliciously down to a rough moreish aftertaste. This has quickly become one of my favourite hop monsters.

Sticky syrup aroma. Such a smooth taste. Watermelon notes. So light on the palate. One of my favorites.

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.

slychis (2) - NEW ZEALAND - AUG 17, 2014 does not count
Great floral nose and rich amber colour at first. Not bitter, but stacks of well structured hops and lingers on the palate nicely
