COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

DeliriumT (367) - Brisbane, - JAN 8, 2012
Pours a perfect amber with thin white head. Smells incredibly refreshing and full of American pale ale yeast and hops. The taste is crisp with a sting bitterness at the back of the palate. A good all round American pale ale, especially for Oceania. If you like this beer and havenít tried little creatures pale ale (from fremantl, western Australia) I would strongly recommend that you give it a go.

Pours an orange colour with an off-white head. Aroma is malt, fruit, citrus and hops. Taste is medium sweet leading to a big hoppy finish.

Pdubyah (423) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 14, 2014
Iíd been avoiding this beer, until of course it won a medal in a recent beer awards thing, at which point I thought I was being contrary and picky. Turns out not so much. Although this has a lovely hop aroma and a great colour it is a bit thin and really needs some food to bolster and prop it up. In its favour it is easy drinking and the aroma and bite are always welcome. Finishes towards dry.

Pictish (10) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 3, 2014
A Ponsy New Age Pale Ale type that kiwi brewers have mastered better than most. Complex aroma with fruity ,grassy, citrus notes and more. Well balanced sweet/sour taste that makes me want more. A superb ale.

gyllenbock (5031) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle from Brothers Beer, Auckland, August 2014. Clear amber with a white head. Fairly relaxed with hops, grass, some light malt. The finish was on the dry side with a hoppy bitter finish.

Leonardus (45) - Rolleston, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 6, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2014 Iím drinking this with fresh bluff oysters accompaniment. Yum. I like this Pale Ale, itís smooth, tasty and has a creamy finish, with little bitterness. Enjoying immensely with the last batch of fresh oysters for this season, compliments them well.

arondee (583) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Pours a see-through copper color with a nice white head. The aroma is sweet malt, caramel candies, and grassy hops. The taste has good hop flavor but itís not all that bitter. Sweet grass, copper, caramel malts, very refreshing and light. The mouthfeel is a little creamy, just the right amount of carbonation. The Pale Ale from NZ is really good. Iím impressed.

Very very hoppy aroma. Golden colour, clousy with fluffy bubbly head. Bitter up front, very hoppy with slightly floral finish. Medium to heavy body with medium carbonation.
