Yet another very good beer by epic. Great thick foamy head. Tight bubles that last, not the quarter inch type that fade away in 30 seconds. Held to the light, its not haxy, just dark gold in appearance. Aroma is good,, if a little mild. Mouthfeel is outstanding.. carbonation has good balance. The hop selection is interesting. Some pine finishing with a hint of citrus. Not overly bitter, a tad more than i would normally like but no complaints here. I think the slight aftertaste may be from the yeast. Not bad at all just different. The belgian characteristics are mild and most evident in the yeast flavors. Very good and will buy again. This is a beer to savor and enjoy, not one for nonchalant drinking nights. Would make an interesting pairing with a sharp cheese and possibly italian pasta - i can really see this complimenting the flavors of garlic and oregano. Not as good as their spiral jetty (imho) but a fine beer that deserves a good try.

for the most part i think i have liked Epic's beers more than most.Poured into a tulip glass a slightly hazed burnt orange with a large fluffy white crown that left two broken rings of lace behind as it settled very slowly into a frothy mass.Aromas of overripe tropical fruits and light phenols,there is a little herbal and resinous note that get bigger as I drink more as well.Flavors of the before mentioned tropical fruits with some toasted grain and some mildly spicy phenols.Not an overly complex beer but the flavors are not bad.

A - dark, murky orange with a big, soft, white head that has decent retention

S - big citrus, oranges, bread, faint belgian yeast

T - very citrusy, oranges, peaches, apricot, mildly bitter finish, some faint belgian yeast

M - smooth, well carbonated, medium bodied, some warming alcohol

This is a really nice, fruity, citrusy, Belgian IPA. I was very impressed. It's got a great hop character and overall flavor as well as great drinkability. This is definitely a beer worth trying.
