On tap @ Chuck’s 85th. Epic is new to Washington state as of the past week. I’ve tried them in the past in Utah but glad to see them coming further west. Pours bright golden orange with thin white head. Aroma is lightly spicy hops and mild caramel hops. Taste is bitter hops up front, with notes of pine and grapefruit. Substantial malt body, creamy somewhat thick mouthfeel. Really nice IPA overall. Not as balanced as the best, but quite good. Hard to predict how much traction this will get in the overcrowded PNW IPA market.
Hazy peachy golden color. Whitish head. Punchy and full. Not too heavy. Crisp with a bit of citrus zest and hops through the finish. Not too dry or bitter. FROTHINGSLOSH (7796) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2016
Sampled on draft this beer poured a murky peach color with a small foamy white head that faded and left minimal lacing. The aroma was sweet, tart, tangy, piney and citric. The flavor was tangy and sweetish with bread and yeast followed by tart citrus and a bit of tropical fruit. Medium length finish. Moderately full bodied. Solid. willisread (3350) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 31, 2016
Tap at Watering Hole for Epic tap takeover back in the Spring. Fairly tame nose with grapefruit and resiny hops. Average carbonation and a medium body. Nice, pithy bitter finish. Just ok, but not really that interesting. miyauchi38 (1096) - chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 16, 2016

Tap. Bright yellow gold with a thin white head. Hoppiness is fairly muted in the aroma; biscuity malts, and dryish. Peppery hops in the finish with some citrus and crackers. Medium body with soft carbonation.

Orange pour from 22oz bottle in park city. White head. Tropical and dank fruit taste, slightly malty and a little too light. Not bad GenkiGonzo (1092) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 28, 2015

Draught at Watering Hole. Classic citrus/pine hop bouquet, biscuit malt base, quite a light body, bitter finish. Not that impressed, quite mild for an IPA, may be past its prime.
