COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
You can only drink so many beers in a lifetime, so you better make each one count. That’s where we can help. Because at Epic we’re obsessed with creating big hop-fuelled beers. This takes a shed-load of skill. It also takes a shed-load of hops. In fact there are 15 crammed into this bottle. Many brewers would call that insane. We call it flavour.

Ungstrup (29988) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2009
Bottled. A golden beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of citrus, malt, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and citrus. The body is light. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

presario (4806) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 13, 2009
Bottle from Duffman. Amber with. Thin skiff. Nice moderate woody hop nose. Delicious hop flavour. Makes you want to keep drinking. Very good woody hop flavour. Delicate malt just enough to carry the hops along.

whiterabbit (28) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 12, 2009
Aroma is wonderful with fresh green hops, I am guessing that these hops are picked earlier than in many other beers to create this aroma. Pours with beautiful off white head which lasts. Flavour is exceptional with grassy bitterness and long lasting dry finish. Possibly the best A.P.A I have ever tasted.

jonno (2345) - JAPAN - SEP 11, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2011 Big hoppy pale ale. Very true to the APA style. Lots of citrus, pine and flowers but with enough backbone to keep it in check. Medium to full bodied. A delight to drink.

davidm (1978) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - SEP 7, 2009
Bottle 500ml. Fantastic beer. Powerful aroma of herbs, and also malt. Flavour is nicely balanced sweet and bitter, with long finish. Amber colour, with a stable medium-size head. Medium body with not too much carbonation.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2009
A Mes rate. Bottle at home.
Clean gold with a thin white head. Big fruity and bitter. Incredibly chewy and tasty. Slight mineral and sour notes. Fantastic bitter finish with great length from the Nelson Sauvin. Brilliant.

Stew41 (1793) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - AUG 30, 2009
Just a touch too much on the high powered hops side for my liking but the class in this beer is evident. Lots of citrus and grapefruit with a darker, bitter edge. The nose is actually quite soft and delicate with sweet passionfruit but the beer is much more serious to taste. Plenty of fizz here but probably appropriate to take the sting out of the hops and bitterness. Finish is bitter, dry, and almost a touch peppery. Stands up well on the world stage.

aisha (2) - NEW ZEALAND - AUG 23, 2009 does not count
copper orange with small head. Citrus, grapefruit notes to the nose. Flavour initially malty which finishes with lots of crisp grapefruit bitterness.

bluevegie (3064) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 29, 2009
Clear orangey golden body with large white head. Passionfruit, grapefruit and citrus notes on the aroma. Taste is fairly similar, plenty of bitterness but in a good way with the malts just supporting this beer. Very drinkable.
