UPDATED: DEC 20, 2014 An enjoyable beer on its own - but not up to the usual Epic standard of excellence. Try one of their many other excellent brews instead...

Light amber, earthy w a light lemon mote. Earthy taste as well, sort of bland w too much caramel malt.

Clear orange colour with thick white fluffy head. Huge hop aroma, typical of Epic, huge hop mouthfeel, but not in your face like other Epic beers. Short finish and leaves you wanting more.

My third IPA in a row and a possible over-indulgence as I contemplate writing off the afternoon. Follows almost exactly the same golden amber colour as the preceding two with more head that leaves behind good lace. The aromas are much more toward Pacific NZ style with loads of grass, spruce and green cones. There’s also a subtle undertone of lemons and tangelos. That resinous quality is there on the palate in spadefuls. It is overt and very much at the fore. It settles slightly bringing out pecans, apricot and then bitterness. This beer endures in the mouth. It sits, obtains a visa and overstays, but you don’t mind. I’m just pleased to see a new release from Epic that isn’t four hundred percent alcohol and possessed by the spirit of the undead or causes earthquakes. A beer with character certainly.

suselore (1) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 15, 2012 does not count
Sweet hops on popping the cap, very nice balanced malty mouthfeel. No lingering bitterness, nice session beer. Nice to see epic pull back a bit and aim for a bit of balance.

Not a hop monster that Epic is renowned for, and nice clean pale ale with a dry bitter finish.
