BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Epic Brewing Company
Utah, United States
epicbrewing.com

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.80%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Made with classic Pacific Northwest Cascade, Centennial, Mt. Hood in the boil and dry hopped with more Cascade hops. Cascade aroma dominates the nose, so be sure to sniff it like a wine snob. Plenty of ultra premium Maris Otter malt and three specialty malts give the beer a nice smooth sailing biscuit like aroma and body, some sweetness, well balanced against 5.8% alcohol by volume.

Beautiful high fluffy head, at least an inch above the rim of the glass. Clumpy lacing sticks to the glass. Cloudy light amber, aroma is light hops. Taste is citrus, pale malts. Easy to drink and highly enjoyable.

Cap't Compton is a beer that I like...versus the rest of the field. My friend from Park City is supplying this morsel. The beer poured a clear copper with thick white head that is leaving a lace. The scent has mostly bitter hops with hint of orange peel. The taste carries mostly bitter hops that dominate. There is a slight citrus zeal and enough malt to make the beer drinkable. The mouthfeel is light to medium in body with good carbonation. Overall this is a solid beer....not spectacular....but certainly sessionable

Hazy appearance, could be chill haze. Beefy, fluffy cloud like off white head. Large and small bubbles. Biscuity aromatics with subtle sweetness. Slightly herbal and tea like flavors. Very clean and light on the palate. Earthy, not bitter or sweet. Light carbonation with a crisp consistency. Light to medium bodied. Not dry but not a lingering finish either. Overall, not bad. I wouldn't seek this out again but for something easy drinking this works.
