You can only drink so many beers in a lifetime, so you better make each one count. Thatís where we can help. Because at Epic weíre 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.

On keg at the Bow Bar. Appearance - not particularly pale. More a deep amber. Decent head. Nose - a bit elusive. Citrus and pine. Resin. Dried fruits. Taste - toffee and red fruits. Definitely raisins on the end. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy yet tangy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - tastes stronger and more complex than the ABV. Itís hard to put this in the pale ale category.

A nice session able American Pale Ale. Nothing leaping out but overall good quality. A balanced beer and very enjoyable.

It was a big hoppy drop, a touch too much hop component for me (15 different varieties is a lot of flavour to deal with) it was good, but a bit unwieldy.

Tropical fruits and floral notes, some spiciness and hints of grapefruit. Thereís another flavour I canít pin down - apricot, maybe? This is so very different from any beer Iíve ever tried. Real nice balance, with the malt backbone just there to compliment all those hops. World class pale ale.

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2016 I tried this a year ago on tap and it rocked my world. Now it is merely a very good beer. The first aroma is hoppy goodness, but it faded a bit to become a malt-dominant beer. Lashings of caramel and a balanced bitterness that fades like a girlfriend who moved away and you never quite got around to breaking up with. Iíll try this beer again tomorrow, as I have a 4 pack, but I doubt Iíll be chasing this girl around the world. 2nd bottle a few days later was better aroma - I think it was a few degrees warmer this time, so donít over chill it

330ml bottle, pours clear amber. Toasted caramel malt with heavy pine and sharp citrus zing. Body is light, finish is crisp and bitter. Nice and hoppy Pale.
