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.

12oz can, no apparent freshness date. Huge rocky head leaves thick foamy lacing on the glass as it fades atop a hazy apricot colored ale. Fruity tropical hops fill the nose with orange, mango, pineapple, and caramel malt. On the palate, bold citrus and tropical passion fruit and pineapple collide with a light caramel base; earthy pine, mango, and orangey kumquat round out the flavors. Medium body, very resinous, finishes bitter with pine, citrus, and white pepper lingering. Juicy? Yes. Flavorful? Yes. Would I get it again? Yes!

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.
