3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber form Pace High Carryout. Hazy orange pour with a thin foamy white head. Aroma is pine, grapefruit, floral. Tastes are along that line - heavy on the grapefruit with grass, little wheat, caramel, little yeasty. Yeah, like this one.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a bomber with no drink by date.
Aroma - Orange peel dominates the aroma, not my favorite. Other tropical fruits are coming thru, but after the orange.
Appearance - Poured a finger’s worth of creamy eggshell color head. Cloudy golden color. Lots of bubbles coming up from the top.
Taste - Definately lacks an IPA mouthfeel that I like. Too light, not enough mouthfeel. Plenty of carbonation - just doesn’t have what I am looking for.
Palate - Iight/oil body feel...very thin.
Overall - Glad I tried another Epic brewing beer, this one didn’t live up to the last one. OK beer, not great. Would need to seek it out again

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear golden under a thin foamy white head. Nose is a bit piney and floral, with little else besides a little resinous bitterness. Flavor was the same; light pine, medium resinous bitterness, some leafy and floral hops, and a clean pale malt and kinda piney finish. Just ok.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bright clear copper amber pour with decent near white head and some sticky lacing. nose of butterscotch and light citrus hops. Flavor is more floral, with a foresty/piney hoppiness and a citrusy twinge that leaves a clean green hop bitterness on the finish. pretty solid ipa.

Some time back we had a number of visitors staying with us. For fun, they took turns going out and picking up varieties of beer. I kept notes about what we thought about each, but can not find them anywhere. I did find a bag of empties from that time period, so thought I would at least record those w/o commet and ratings from memory. This is one of those. (When I do find the notes it will be interesting to see how close I came)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On cask @ Beachwood BBQ. Slightly hazed orange pour with some soapy white foam. A bit of caramel, lots of floral hops, and plenty of orange. Pretty heavy on the pine, a touch of tea, and some grapefruit peel. Good orange, grapefruit peel, and pine on the palate. A touch of malt sweetness and a nice bitterness on the finish. A bit of herbs and tea. Not bad.
