Notes / Commercial Description:
RiNo Juicy APA is the reimagining of RiNo Pale Ale, one of the first beers Epic brewed to season their Denver brewhouse. It’s updated with loads of juicy, late-addition, Centennial and Mosaic hops, just a bit of haze to soften the mouth-feel and a bright burst of colorful tropical aromas.

12 oz can. Pours a hazy gold with a white foam head. Aroma is juicy citrus with floral and resin notes. Flavor is similar, dry and bitter. Has a crisp body.

Bottle at the brewery. White head. Lace. Clear golden orange, no haze.

Earthy and juicy. Fruity and floral. Some citrus. A little bit of malts.

Pretty basic, but pretty solid!

This is yet another entry into the hazy APA/IPA market, and it's not bad, but I prefer others a bit more. This one gives you the fruitiness up front, then the bitter hops later, in two distinct waves. I prefer a bit more balance rather than having the dominant flavors separated. Not bad, not outstanding, just solid.

Found this in Wegmans in southeastern Pennsylvania and decided to give it a try. Cool can and nice looking beer. Great citrus smell and taste is light and has citrus notes. This would easily be sessionable. It is missing something at the end. Love the up front hops and smoothness but I am missing the bitterness at the end that I love. Decent IPA / APA but there are others I prefer

12oz can poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy glowing golden with a fluffy eggshell white head that falls slowly leaving nice retention and sticky lacing. The aromas have subtle hints of tropical notes. Some coconut and pineapple. Some floral notes. Crackers and fresh bread. Malts are there. The flavors follow the nose for the most part. More hints of pineapple and coconut. Fresh grass is there. Solid hop flavors. Low bitterness. Finishes juicy, but doesn't drink like juice. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium-bodied with moderate to low carbonation. It's fluffy, smooth and easy to drink.

This is a solid pale ale. It's right in the middle of being an IPA and a pale ale. It's nothing crazy, but it's not bad.

Had this on tap at The Lobby on Araphoe near the stadium while in Denver. I thought the lack if head was disappointing, but otherwise looked and smelled on style. Salt and citrus and late oily bitterness. Quite tasty with the egg and chorizo burrito.

if i see one more beer with juicy or hazy in the name, i am going to smash it with a hammer instead of drinking it. come on guys, find other descriptors please! with that said, i was pretty let down by this beer, i mean, its a fine and easy drinking can of pale ale, but the hop profile seems muted to me, a poor expression of what mosaic really can be, and without any bitterness to help it finish, it lingers a little longer than i want it to, reducing refreshment value. there is a little fruitiness to it though, pineapple and cantaloupe and even lime for a second, but it seems overbalanced by even a minimalist grain base, and washes out a little in the flavor. its not bad at all, its even good when its cold, but it contributes absolutely nothing new, and for the same price i can find 20 better pale ales at most bottle shops these days. epic has been dumbing it down a lot lately in my mind, like, they always used to impress me with their innovation and quality, and since they have been in colorado the beer has been getting safer and less good, at a faster rate recently too. this is drinkable enough but entirely forgettable, i am in no hurry for more.

A little malty for my taste, especially in an IPA

Poured slightly hazy amber honey with a nice head that left tons of lacing.

Aroma consists of citrus juice and orange peel with lesser notes of tropical fruits and a bit of danky hops. Juicy is a proper description. Also pick up a small bit of bready, toasted biscuit notes.

Taste is a pretty amazing, balanced blend of all the fruitiness and everything from the aroma, full and delicious.

Feel is the lighter side of medium, pretty smooth and creamy, ok carbonation, low and easy bitterness.

Overall, this is an outstanding new APA from Epic, leaning more towards the New England style of super juicy and low bitterness, but there is definitely a great, well-rounded quality to this beer. At $9 a 6-pack, this is a must try.
