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.

tombutlin (33) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 23, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2015 I tried this a year ago on tap and it rocked my world. Now it is merely a veryy 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
