Pours a murky orange with a foamy orange-white head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, earth, citrus zest, and slight herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with earth and citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a somewhat dirty aroma that isn't as noticeable in the taste.

From a 22oz. Bomber
My first Epic brew.
Looks good, plenty of fluffy off-white head on top of a slightly hazy medium amber.

Smell is more piney than anything but very subdued.

Taste is really not what I think about for a pale ale. Seems almost like a good lager. The hops are not ones I can ID.... Just bitterness but not really "flavor"

Mouthfeel is very good, though.

Would not seek this one out again

Strong orange/copper body color with a very thick, very chunky white head; plenty of clinging foam sticking the the glass. Excellent soft pine and citrus hop aroma; musk melon. Mild grain flavor with a stronger (though not overbearing) hop bitterness. Medium body; crisp, semi-dry finish.

A bold, strong looking beer with a mild flavor profile. The rather subdued taste isn't a negative; in fact, I'd consider it a big plus as it adds some distinction compared to other pale ales that come across more like IPAs. Perhaps a tad alcohol-heavy to be considered a session ale, but very much an easy drinking, lighter feeling beer.

Pours a beigish golden with a white head. Aroma offers a touch of some graininess and herbs, citrus fruit, and some pine. Flavor seemed to follow suit. Initial sip seemed kinda meh, the subsequent sips got a bit better. A medium bodied, active mouthfeel. Nothing special. Overall, middle of the road pale ale here. Enjoyable enough to drink, but forgettable from my initial experience. Could drink again, but would I every order this again in a market filled with much better stuff? Probably not
