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.

Have had on tap and in bottles, prefer it on tap personally as it seems more thin bodied out of the bottle. Pours crystal clear with a nice white fluffy head. Big hop aroma with massive citrus notes. Flavour comes through as a fairly hefty bitterness with a slightly dry finish which lingers on the toungue. Goes down exceptionally well in the warm weather.

Aroma of fruit and rain. Flavor is light bitterness, somewhat sweet and a complex hop character. Crushable. Pours reddish orange with a cream head.

Has a caramel nose which is not over the the top for a pale ale but it is the refreshing bitterness of the hops that make it thirst quenching. Drinks really well and is a great session beer.

500 ml bottle bought at YATA in MOKO, Mong Kok.

Looks: Clear amber honeyOne finger head with crumpet off white foam which lasts for 2 minutes; Beautiful sticky lacing with active carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragrant sweet Ale malt, with fresh grapefruit, lychee, apricots, strong floral, honey, molasses, light pine, lemon and strong fresh grass.

Taste: Medium sweet full Ale malt, with strong caramel, grapefruits, strong floral, pine, light resins, biscuits, spices, lemon, lime, strong bitter hops and sharp grass.

Body: Mid to light body. Slick and slightly oozy palate.

Mouth Feel: Rich Ale maltyness in a solid background. Strong Crystal’s caramel followed by good dose of Cascades - grapefruits, flower, pine, light ooze and strong spices. Moderate sweetness and dryness. Good lemony lime to round. Very good!

Hoppiness: Grapefruits, lychee, apricots, strong floral, light pine, lemon and fresh grass in nose. Citrus, strong floral, pine, light resins, spices, lemon, lime and sharp grass in taste. Bitterness is strong and sharp for a lasting, quite strong astringent bitter sweet finish.

After Taste: Quite dry. Malty and citrusy-bitter to mouth.

Comments: This one has a solid, caramel-laced malty Ale base to start, and Cascade niceness is most evident in the fresh fruity and grassy aromas, while the hop taste is firm but lack dimensions. Its APA I know, but if a feel more different C hops got into the mix, this one could explode and be right up there. Still a very refreshing one to enjoy!

A wonderful burnt orange colour with a thin but steadfast ivory head. Melon on the nose and a sweet biscuity malt aroma. Nice and hoppy, pine and grass flavours - sweet toffee to help balance it. Medium to light body, nice and crisp finish with good carbonation.

Poured from bottle. Answer in color with a large head. Slight fruity aroma and purely hoppy taste resembling cardboard

resiny and hoppy despite the fact that I don’t think this is very fresh. Seems older than the ipa and lager with hints of cardboard. Still pretty good, which keeps me curious...

Draught @ Beer Deluxe, Melbourne Pale copper beer, creamy white head. Hoppy nose; melon, papaya, citrus, nice touch of light caramel biscuity malt. Med-full body, moderate carbonation, some sticky resiny texture there. Plenty to enjoy here - tropical fruity, fragrant hops, backed up by biscuity toasty malts. Bitterness somewhat restrained, hops seem to accentuate malt sweetness. What you would come to expect from a good NZPA - good stuff!

Vignale (3058) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 3, 2015
Flaska från Craftbeer/Galatea via SBs privatimport. En karamellig, lätt kådig pale ale med IPA kvalitéer i både kropp och humling. Mycket kolaremmar. Humlen är inte superfärsk men fortfarande fräsch med fina granskott och citrussmaker. Riktigt snygg och välbalanserad.

Light bodied example of an excellent pale ale. Citrus and spice forward floral hoppiness that opens into a moderately bitter palate. A great example. Highly recommend, this is the beer that got me into craft beer.
