12oz can poured into a pilsner glass. No codes or dates.

Pours hazy yellow with a very small head. Lots of floating chunks. Lots of carbonation. Smell is fresh and crisp, grassy, lemon.

Taste is nicely floral, honeysuckle sweetness, some hay and grass, lots of lemon. Pretty nice.

Mouthfeel is dry. Overall, good, but not great.

Thanks to Joe_Grizzly for this extra: always up for a new Epic brew, I tracked many of them down when they first showed up in MN. 22 oz. bottle split with my wife.

The pour is a slightly hazed yellow with low carbonation to the point of non-. The nose is sweet & fruity – blind, I’d have let out a rebel yell & declared this a Belgian. Huh.

Escape from Colorado, well, why the hell would anyone want to do that? I loved Colorado. Spent summers from ’86-’91 at the RenFest there, drinking 3.2 wine coolers & chasing girls; how could I not love it at that age? The beer? Oh, yeah, it’s beer. Mirror image of the nose: double handfuls of sweet malts backed up with tango, lemon, mango, afterimage of herbal tea. Mid-palate, mild bitterness finally drops by but it’s a long, lingering taste that veers right up to the guard rail of aspirin. Not tough to drink though.

Fruit + Bayer isn’t quite my speed, but I appreciate the attempt at diversification of my IPA portfolio. Pretty good beer.
