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.

Trying out escape to Colorado on what seems to be the first run of cans to hit LA

Looks a little ugly when poured out of the can- very thin white head that disappears quickly. Golden in color that seems to glow a bit when held up to the light

Aroma is of fine malts with mosaic in the background. Very enjoyable. Both in a glass or in the can. Dank aroma seeps out of the can right away.

Tastes like hop water. There was more malts in the aroma than the actual taste. Fruity hops up front with a splash of freshwater. Missing the earthiness here

Mouthfeel is rather thin like a session IPA - kinda just goes down easy for the abv. Light body and crisp but not very refreshing

Overall I found that this beer was way better even when it was at room temp. I guess that's why it's in a can - just put it in the back pack and this beer rocks when far away from home. I also cooled this beer down to the Max and all the flavors were masked - pricey as the six pack ended up costing me 13 bucks .

3.61/5  rDev -0.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured from the bottle into a Spiegelau IPA glass.

One of the lightest IPAs I've seen. Pale lemon yellow body, with a big bright white three to four finger tall head. Lots of retention and island clumping on top. Good slow rising carbonation coming up. Real nice looking but incredibly pale and light.

Interesting nose, small grapefruit like airy quality. Slightly hinting of weak pineapple and a bit watery sensing.

Palate comes nicely but strangely weaker than anticipated. There's an interesting body quality to this with a good malt depth, but a very light feel. Hints a bit of toast with a hop angle matching the nose, but moves more to citrus weak lemon flavors. Mild sensing hop angle continuing on, with an easy quenching quality.

This really comes off like a session IPA even though it's much higher in ABV. It's aroma an flavor come off pretty safe and neutral.
