Medium amber pour, off white head. Some nice golden raisin, citrusy hops, resin and sugar cookie aroma. Flavor is a nice mix of resinous hops and toffe malt. I almost get a hint of fruitcake in this.
In a sample glass at the Epic Annex in Salt Lake City. Pours a hazy gold amber with a beige head, Nose of fruit and floral hops. Medium body Flavor is big on fruit . Finishes bitter. quite good. George999 (457) - Colorado, USA - FEB 20, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2016 From the bottle the aroma is hoppy and I get a very light pine note. The Beer is clear and orange and red in color. The head is white and thing but lingers, the taste is malts but not heavy. The hops complete the finish, and the overall carbonation is good. Takeaway, this is a crisp pale ale with a good hop balance. Metalchopz (3384) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 2, 2015
Had at the Yard House, at the Red Rock Casino in Vegas under the name Epic Rino Pale ale and with nitro. Pours a hazy golden-amber with a creamy beige head, good retention and lacing. Fruity malt aromas with nutty notes and some decent grassy hops. The hops do take a little over in the taste, over the fruity and mild nutty malts. An overall nice refreshing, fruity and hoppy APA. tysongillmore (362) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 21, 2015
Was a bit yeasty, probably due to being slightly shaken around. ---Rated via BeerBuddy for iPhone.

Amber with creamy medium head. Aroma is fruity and malty. Taste follows, no much hops. But a farly good APA!

Slightly hoppy APA, but not over powering good malty flavor not much of an after taste over all a good beer. Pours a nice full head about two fingers worth really holds up.

22 oz bottle. (Texas Wine & Spirits) Carlsbad, CA.mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - DEC 27, 2014
Amber colour with a mid-size off-white head.
The aroma is sweet piney and fruity hops, mild bitterness and malty sweetness. The flavour is fruity and citrusy hops, mild bitterness and sweet maltiness. Not necessarily super fresh bottle.
Quite enjoyable and flavorful. Two demerits. First, Way too high ABV for this style. Second, I seem to be detecting a slight alcohol burn.
