L: All sort of big particulates visible--looks gross and I wonder if it's safe to drink.
S: Smells a little fruity but mostly a weird slightly-nasty dankness (reminds me of Lagunitas undercover)
T: Slightly tart at the start, gets moderately high tartness near the end of the sip. only the faintest hints of hops. Overall the taste does not blend well together. It's just plain not good.
F: The beer feels good at least.
O: Perhaps I just don't have the right set of taste buds but this wasn't good

I like this as a sessionish IPA. Probably not a true session at 4.5%, but lower than most IPAs. Has a definitely tart flavor followed by a citrus finish. Refreshing. Not a "light" beer but lighter on hops than most IPAs. Pours cloudy like a wheat but no wheat flavor at all. The citrus & sour dominates all other flavors and it's otherwise pretty clean. I like it! Poured from a can into a chilled pint pub glass.

Pour this hard into your glass to produce a great IPA head. Leave a little in the can to swish around and then pour the remaining beer into your glass. Remaining beer near the can bottom adds a wonderful, cloudy, flavorful, character of an unfiltered IPA and Kettle Sour blend to your tall glass. Juicy, Juicy Citrus hops for sure! A super Kettle Sour! All in one. Great finish too.

Very drinkable at only 4/5% alcohol. Could call it a Session IPA/Sour. You won't be cheated on outstanding flavor. It is somewhat similar to Trinity Brewing's Super Juice. I have seen a few bars with this Epic beer on tap, since it has a broad appeal. I wish there were more beers of this style.

Personally, I have tried several sours and derivatives. I also am not a big fan of fruity or wine barrel beers. This beer from Epic is, and looks, and tastes like a hoppy beer that was Kettle soured. A wonderful marriage to be enjoyed over and over.

Tasted in a Rastal Teku from a 12 fl oz can on March 9, 2018. Combines the clean, puckering tartness of kettle souring with an abundance of juicy, citrus-driven hops to create a beer that is the best of both worlds.

Hazy saturated orange, thin layer of foam, minimal spotty lace.
Minerally lacto yogurt, mild grapefruit acidity in the aroma.
Grapefruit and eucalyptus flavors, pretty tasty.
Feel is thin and watery, kind of a typical kettle sour profile.
Overall though, this would be a nice warm weather quencher.
Needs a little more body and carb to really come together.
So this is a thing now it seems... let it be known, Almanac & Hudson Valley did it first and did it better.
