One of the most attractive Brown Ales I've poured. Dark umber brown with an amber glow. Big frothy head piled high with great retention. Pleasantly sparkly on the tongue.

There is some malty sweetness to start, but this is all about the hops. Dark notes of roasted barley and a touch of burnt sugar. Lots and lots of bittering hops. In fact this gets quite bitter after a few swigs. It's better with food. Not a beer for the long haul unless you're warming up for a major IPA.

Another interesting and well-made brew from Epic. From the 22 oz bottle bought at Bottleworks in San Diego. Label says Release #3 and 7.2% ABV.
