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.

HopRedHead (393) - 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 (6940) - 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..

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".

mcberko (7074) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 14, 2013
500mL bottle, enjoyed immediately after purchase, pours a clear copper / bronze with a small off-white head. Aroma of floral hops predominantly, grass, a bit of citrus and a crackery malt backing. Flavour brings out dry notes of grassy and floral hops, citrus and a substantial crackery / biscuity malt backing. Quite a dry, monolithic palate, with not much character. I’m not sure how fresh this is, as there is no bottle date, but seems it could be fresher. Decent pale ale, but nothing overly interesting.

Very hoppy ale, not the best gateway beer for Tui drinkers, as the hoppiness will probably overpower them (my experience when attempting to bring my bro over to the dark side) but for me I love it! Very summer-drinkable, strong in the mouth with a dry finish.

Heard about the beer from Can You Brew It. Glad to pick it up. Slight floral, bready aroma with subtle grapefruit on the tail end. Tastes of bready, biscuity, slight caramel and balanced with generous amount of hop flavor. Very balanced bitterness. Quite tasty. I'd pick it up again.

This was my xmas pick of the beers. It was a great PA, good hop presence, nicely balanced and finishes well. Lacks the punch of a great PA but very sessionable.
