A - Poured into a pint from the can with a golden haze and strong head.
S - Grass a little tropical
T - The first sip was like the nose. Citrus and some floral
M - Medium body with more of a refreshing lighter finish then many IPA.
O - Very drinkable, doesn't have a hop bite and a bit lighter then I expect in the class.

3.49/5 rDev -4.9%
Servign Type - Can
Appearance - Straw yellow, with a 1/2 inch head. Decent lacing.
Smell - Light floral hops, orange, pineapple, some spices. A grassy note along with some bready malts.
Taste - Much like the aroma, Light floral hops with a mild malt backbone. Each fruit that's noticed, is very mild and almost, watered down in flavor. Some spices along with light sweetness adds a much need boast of flavor. A bready/toasty note comes in at the finish.
Mouthfeel - Light hops with some added spices coats the tongue. Palate gets more floral fruits with a touch of bready malts. Aftertaste is mild floral fruits, and a little weak/watery.
Overall - As a aipa, this is ok. As a session ipa pretty good. All the flavors are light and a little weak. Still, this is tasty and enjoyable, but its almost like a light-ipa. Theres not much here to ever bring me back to this beer but it might be a great starter for a rookie ipa drinker.

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.

12oz can poured to pint shaker
Pours a straw gold, hazy with visible small particles. Small white head dissipates quickly
Nice aroma, with an initial rush of bread fresh out of the oven and citrus flowers
Flavor follows the nose, bread and citrus, though a tad lighter. Nicely balanced with significant sweetness checked by a decent bitterness... one of the better examples of good balance I've tried recently. Simple in the big notes, some lingering interestingly complex low level flavors I'm not quite putting my finger on all of in the aftertaste: basil, vanilla, black pepper, copper?
Mouth feel is thin and watery
Really tasty and luscious smelling beer, with cosmetic faults and low carbonation keeping me from giving it a much higher score. I'll definitely try this on tap if I see it. Drinks lighter then the 6.2 abv would indicate

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.
