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.

330mL bottle from Plonk. Darkish-amber, fantastic pine/grapefruit/floral hop aroma and flavour. One of the best APAs I’ve had.

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2013 Re-rate: I was a tad harsh on this before, I found all the previous bottles to be very timid in aroma and taste. The bottle I’m drinking right now is much better. Everything is a lot fresher and zingier. I could session this all night and for $5.99 a 500ml bottle, I’d only need to save up for a fortnight to do it.

Unm4rk3d (74) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - MAR 9, 2013
A floral sensation hit to the nose, with a dash of fruitiness. Clear golden honey in appearance. Lovely light bitter sweet taste that stays on till the very end. Light in the glass yet lively carbonation in the mouth. Crafty with Epic proportions!

HopRedHead (344) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 5, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Hoppy nose with strong floral hints and a touch of resin. A sweet taste with smooth carbonation and a balanced malt presence. Mild bitter finish that has you reaching for more.

Pleasant floral hop aroma with some resin. Hops are balanced by some biscuity malt. Aftertaste is quite sweet with some caramel, especially as the beer warms up. Mouthfeel is dry. Tasty and very drinkable.

bottle in hotel from Auckland supermarket
Clear light chestnut amber with lemon and kiwifruit on the nose. Slightly chalky texture with pithy orange bitterness and oatcake malt flavours.

DrSilverworm (6277) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 22, 2013
16.9oz bottle, from The Party Source. Clear orange color. Thin khaki head. Fizzes away a bit, but some remains. Decent lace. Medium body, smooth carbonation. More dry finish, Light bitter, light sweet. Some citrus, light resin, little grass, some pine. Caramel and toasty malts. Solid balanced pale ale, though kind of malt-forward right now. There’s a reasonable chance that this isn’t as fresh as it should be..

DRummery (5) - Whangarei, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 20, 2013 does not count
Thank goodness I can get this beer at the supermarket here in the craft-beer-dry North!! Easy to overlook with all of Epics other "epic" beers, but it really is a great and very drinkable beer. Not so intense that it isn’t refreshing after mowing the lawns, but way above the average bland "lawnmower beer".
