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.

grapefruit and orange aroma. Clear dark golden; disappearing white head. Citrus and rose-water flavours, with a hint of caramel. Crisp finish, with a firm bitterness, but also a lingering marmalade-esque sweetness.

kiwibt (55) - , NEW ZEALAND - SEP 27, 2008
On tap at the Malthouse. Pours clear orange/brown with meduim head. Aroma is stronge grapefruit,rose petal with some fruity esters.Classic USA cascade hop qualities. Grapefruit,rose petal hop flavour balanced with a clean crystal/caramalt background finishing with a clean bitterness. Overall a good beer, a slight increase in bitterness would make it very good. Well brewed with no technical faults.

Rigger from regional. My favourite of the regular brewed Epic beers. Pours a red/amber with a white head. Strong hoppy aromas dominate. Main flavour is hops, bringing a nice bitterness but not making it too much. The lovely flavours linger after every sip making you want more and more.

KiwiJonno (76) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 20, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2008 330mL Bottle. Amber/Golden beer, with small white head. Aroma leads you to what is to follow - a hoppy bitter beer. Sweetish caramel malt tastes, followed by a strong bitter hop finish. Complex hops and good length on the finish. Great APA!

highlandlad (1402) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - MAR 4, 2008
Terrific Kiwi pale ale. Deep gold with shallow suds. Fruity but slightly muddled aroma - too many hop varietals? Passionfruit, blackcurrant and boiled lollies. Medium bodied and quite oily in feel. Good malt base and bitterness. Spangles lollies. Very sessionable. (330ml bottle at Sully’s Sydney RB Xmas 07 gathering)

sunevdj (3052) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - FEB 19, 2008
Bottla at Manukau Festival. Pours a clear amber with a small, off-white head. Light sweetness with sme bitterness. Hint of caramel aromas - Nice, as it gives a hint of a malt backbone. Heavy citrus and grapefruit hopsaromas. Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Best NZ beer so far.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2008
(On tap) Clear, deep golden with a small, off-white head. Fantastic aroma of citrus and peaches. Medium body with solid caramel notes and then again citrus - grape perhaps - before a dry finish that isn’t overly bitter. A lovely APA. 060208
