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

hawthorne00 (3820) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 12, 2013
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 (3641) - Malm, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2013
Flaska frn SBs BS okt 2013. Brnstensfrg som drar t rtt, klar, lgt skum. Typisk mosaicdoft och smak. vermogna jordgubbar, vlmogen ananas, persika och mango, jordig, mttad stma, toffee och lite kryddor som kanel och torkad ingefra i bakgrunden. Medelstor beska. En av de humlesorter som funkat bra p egen hand och Epics single hop r 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 (3054) - 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.

davidm (2079) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 13, 2013
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 isnt Epic-enormous as I was expecting. Lush and likeable, a bubbly redhead in a summer dress. Lovely.

Jaha s sitter man hr igen och dricker en bra ipa, livet r lite fr bra ibland om man tnker efter, s gr inte det. Det hr var en trevlig ipa med en vldigt fin och fruktig smak med toner av tallbarr, grapefrukt och trighet. Kroppen var stabil men ngon balans kunde jag inte riktigt knna av. Gott var det i alla fall.
