3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Chuck’s 85th. Epic is new to Washington state as of the past week. I’ve tried them in the past in Utah but glad to see them coming further west. Pours bright golden orange with thin white head. Aroma is lightly spicy hops and mild caramel hops. Taste is bitter hops up front, with notes of pine and grapefruit. Substantial malt body, creamy somewhat thick mouthfeel. Really nice IPA overall. Not as balanced as the best, but quite good. Hard to predict how much traction this will get in the overcrowded PNW IPA market.

Sunflower seed smell, cloudy orange pour slightly bitter, not a typical beer from epic that is usually great.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Watering Hole. Classic citrus/pine hop bouquet, biscuit malt base, quite a light body, bitter finish. Not that impressed, quite mild for an IPA, may be past its prime.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle poured into a pint glass.
The Spiral Jetty pours a cloudy light orange with a thick beige head that lasts a long while. The aroma is citrus, floral, resin and biscuit. The flavor is citrus, floral, resin and biscuit as well. The flavors mash up at the end and don’t necessarily compliment each other. Overall this beer is fairly average.

UPDATED: APR 19, 2015 This beer is always a little disappointing. As far as IPA?s go, it is a very mild one.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Vegas. Shared with Dan, Danni, and Josh. Snifter pour is very cloudy orange-brown with large head. Good lacing. Aroma is decent with pine resin, orange, lemon, and spruce. The taste was a hoppy mixture of pine, citrus, floral notes, and leather. The bottle seemed to be somewhat old with some oxidation. That made for a paper cardboard finish. Medium texture, medium carbonation. Mediocre at best.
