Mid-amber with slight white head and hop hazy with a resinous pithy nose,clean hop profile and bite with balancing malt and a long resinous finish. Epic seem to be the Kernel of the southern hemisphere
It's like drinking toast! Amazing toasty red malt flavours dominate with big but balanced hop profile and body. Epic are uncannily genius.

Clear bright amber beer, good size off white fluffy head. Crispy palate. minerals. A little creamy malt. Mildly bitter tangerine - orange giving way to sweeter tangerine and then quite a bitter minerally finish. Nice but could do with more intensity.
Striking colour- bright orange with good foam. Smells great, some stonefruit sweetness.. there’s hops up front and on the back palate- lovely lingering finish goes on. Flavours were dominated by grass/spruce for me. Great beer, if somewhat underwhelming jimhilt (2633) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Pours a three-finger off-white head that fades very slowly to a thin layer leaving a good lace. Crystal clear amber/copper color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Resin/bready nose. Flavor is malty, bready, some caramel like an IPA without the hops. $8.92 for a 500ml bottle from Tully’s Beer & Wine Wells, ME.

Love the hop aroma, Burst of tropical fruits, passionfruit, grapefruit, resin, and pineapple. Colour is amber with a medium head, lacing. Flavour is bitter, fruity, but a little short.
Mouthfeel is good.
T: enjoyable. Pdubyah (833) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 7, 2012
The grassy hoppy aroma doesn’t seem to hang around, and I get some malty richness. There is tangy on the tongue, but it seems "thin" and transient, ambivalent. Not exactly mayhem or an ambush, and unlike the Cilla Black song there is "nothing there to remind me". ej (1330) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - NOV 14, 2012
Deep golden pour with a small off-white head leaving a decent amount of lacings. aroma is floral english hops and taste is mellow hoppy and caramel. could have benefitted from abit more carbonation, but all in all a decent IPA. ClubGonzo (5683) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 14, 2012
Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Deep clear coppery orange body, small white head. Aroma is grass, licorice, peaches, hints of parsley mango and herbs. Taste is mild peachy grass tones, licorice, herbs and hints of water melon and wet leaves. The load of crystal/caramel malts is present and could have been reduced IMO. A bit low on carbonation, but smooth and nice mouthfeel. A good IPA all in all, but maybe a bit straightforward. Not so Epic, in other words. robforbes (2277) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - SEP 22, 2012

smell is of a little citrus, caramel, and some spice.
