COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
One Trick Pony Series
So much beer with so little flavour. Conntemplating the blue pill? Wait! A new pony with a kick-ass facial horn. Power to neutralise poison from the faceless industrial brewing complex. No more green bottles, just green hops. No virgins needed to tame this. May contain traces of Alicorn.

@ Eddan: en mycket trevlig doft som har fin balans. Smaken är fräsch med tydlig syra fast ändå ganska rund eftersmak. Jag gillar denna nya humlesorten. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Clear copper with an inch of white head that fades to a coat. Typically vibrant aroma of passionfruit, lychees, pine, marijuana, pepper. A little toasted caramel sweetness and lots of tropical fruit. Fairly bitter, a little earthy and quite peppery.

Vignale (3829) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2013
Flaska från SBs BS okt 2013. Bärnstensfärg som drar åt rött, klar, lågt skum. Typisk mosaicdoft och smak. Övermogna jordgubbar, välmogen ananas, persika och mango, jordig, mättad sötma, toffee och lite kryddor som kanel och torkad ingefära i bakgrunden. Medelstor beska. En av de humlesorter som funkat bra på egen hand och Epics single hop är inget undantag. Riktigt gott.

maneliquor (3514) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 7, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours darker than expected - a clear amber with a small beige head. Good retention and lacing. Nose is clean cut grass, quite tropical and almost a dirty earthiness about it. I like it. Well balanced bitterness throughout this beer. Tropical notes all around with dirty, grassiness in there too and some sticky sweet resin to back it. Good stuff

Davros (3183) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 11, 2013
Pours dark amber, very dark for an IPA. Nose shows tea, sweet clean malt, herbal hops, spicy malt and caramel. More sweet malt as flavours with some fruit cake and golden syrup notes. Also some peach and apple. Carbonation seems a bit full on.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2013 Bottle at Cookie. Hoppy with good balance. Aromas of caramel, flowers, grain and liquorice. Taste is sweet and bitter with long length. Palate is velvety and medium-bodied. Amber with a frothy head.

Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - APR 4, 2013
As soon as the lid was off there was a vapour trail of green chlorophyll and hops straight up the nose. The beer itself looks coppery amber with a skim of off-white head. Closer inspection reveals tangelo, orange peel, sweet juicy tropical fruit. As a one-trick pony it is a pretty good trick. The favour is mostly the same with a slightly prickly mouthfeel and some citrussy oil and a nice twinge of bitterness, although the bitterness isn’t Epic-enormous as I was expecting. Lush and likeable, a bubbly redhead in a summer dress. Lovely.

Ok IPA. KAnske lite above average.. Rätt balanserad, lite oljig och lätt i kroppen.

beer-yum (1710) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 15, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2014 Yet another great beer from Epic (aptly named). This single hop IPA is just asking to be compared to their blended hop Zythos. While I’m sure I’ll eventually prefer one over the other I’m happy to keep an open mind and draining glasses of both!
