Pretty good IPA. Resembles Hop Stoopid. Another favorite of mine. Smoother than some other IPA's. Doesn't have the bite of Ruination. However Ruination is my favorite by the way. I will definitely be getting this again...very soon.

This beats all 80 of the previous beers I have rated on this site. Almost perfectly balanced hops, yeast and Malts. A real pleasure and sad to know that it is not available year round. I found this bomber at Whole Foods in Seattle and hope I can find some more before Seattle runs out!

Really enjoyed this IPA. It wasn't super hoppy like alot of other IPAS with a smooth after taste. The perfect hot day IPA.
Would highly recommend this. If I remember correctly, Total Wine had plenty left of the shelves.
Excited to try some other styles from Epic.

22 oz bottle poured into an Epic tulip.
6.7% ABV, Release #11

A - Partially hazed, this beer is neither see-through nor completely cloudy; more of a milky goldenrod color. Wispy lace tumbles down into the ring of loose, Swiss-cheese-like bubbles left after the off-white head disappeared.

S - Brainless IPA has a fruity aroma of American hops, blending mango, honeydew melon, and pineapple into a fruity puree that's overshadowed by the vibrant and citrusy, spicy Belgian yeast. Lemongrass spice meets lemon oil with moist gobs of white clay rolled in fresh clove.

T - Chunky orange marmalade spread over toasted English muffin leads the way into the citrus-and-spice combination offered by the aroma as lemongrass and lemon oil overtake the hop-infused fruity blend that finishes out on the tongue.

M - Very nicely carbonated, Brainless IPA is prickly but smooth, starting with a jam-like sweetness that thoughtfully transitions to dry yeast spice and finishes with an even drier hop bitterness.

O - Contrary to it's name, Brainless IPA is quite thought-out indeed, showcasing Belgian yeast first and foremost making this American brew a Belgian-style beer first and an IPA second but the combination is a fantastic one! Fruity and spicy yeast esters meld wonderfully with the hops' juicy fruitiness for a match made in heaven!
