On the can it says brewed and packaged in Denver, CO. I thought Epic was based out of Utah, that may have changed. These new cans look great I grabbed a sixer without thought, I'm glad I did. Pale copper slight chill haze birght white head, fine even layered lacing. Aroma has sugar coated hops, tropical fruit notes, candied grapefruit peel, grassy hop notes. Flavor upright bright bitter citrus based hops, Mosaic hop madness gives earthy, dank, mango, citric, and killer tropical fruit hop sweetness. Enough bitterness and pale malt sweetness to balance it out but this beer is all about the green hop freshness of Mosaic hops, I really like it's simplicity and execution. Mouthfeel light to medium bodied resinous hop accents, goes down easily soft carbonation bone dry finish equates to the type of beer I like to drink. Overall, it's super impressive a wonderful beer that I must find some access to it.

I'm deferring to LiquidAmber's review about 5 posts below this. That review nailed my review but I apparently enjoyed more.

AIPA's have a pretty wide range, and this is a great example of that. It is unique and bold, and that's what makes an AIPA.

It pouts a typical yellow, hazy with a little head. The aroma is out of this world. Piney, grassy, it has it all going on in smell.

The taste is a dry, hoppy AIPA. It tastes under-malted, like many of the style, but it works, and keeps it drinkable. You could session this just fine.

The aftertaste lingers pretty long and bitter. This is just the kind of brew I've come to expect from Epic - high quality, interesting stuff. Recommended.

Poured from a 12 oz. can into a tall pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a bright golden orange with a lot of rising bubbles. About two fingers of white head which slowly fade into a thin creamy layer. Leaves a decent amount of lacing.

Smell: A fruity and herbal hop forward aroma with good hints of citrus fruit and pine. Upfront citrus hops with hints of orange, grapefruit, mango, lemon, pineapple, tangerine, peach, and melon. Earthy and herbal hops with hints of grass and pine resin. Solid malt backing with hints of caramel, grains, cracker, and yeast. A pretty solid hoppy aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a juicy and herbal hop driven taste with big notes of citrus fruit and pine. Citrus hops with some upfront notes of orange pulp, mango, grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, peach, and melon. Earthy, herbal, and floral hops with some notes of pine resin and grass. Backing presence of malt with notes of cracker, caramel, grains, and yeast. A pretty nice juicy taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Juicy and pretty smooth with a drying finish.

Overall: A pretty good take on a IPA. Nice orange juice flavor along with some other fruit.
