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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Can, says made in Denver. 6.2%

A: Brighter, yellow gold than most IPAs, with a thick white mereng head that lasts and laces.

S: Floral hops--resinous, pine, and citrusy. I can smell it while it's sitting on my desk, always a plus.
T: Follows the smell, packed with hop flavor, piney, and nutty. The bitterness allows sweet malt notes, airy and high peaks-feel, in the conifers, and the finish is smooth, .
F: A bit thin, but easy finish. A little soapy. Drinkable, but I like more body
O: NIce beer I kept coming back to and improves at room temp.

Citrusy-piney nose, fruity hop taste. About 1 finger of head pour, minimal lacing. Light going down, not super strong tasting

I can see why many people like this brew, it has a decent body and good malt flavor, but I'm just not a fan of this style of piney, grapefruit flavored hopped IPA. However, My wife would love it.
