BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Epic Brewing Company
Utah, United States | website

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.

22 oz bomber purchased form Epic Brewing in SLC, poured into a goblet.

Appearance: Light hazy wonderful light golden. Slightly off-white head settles slowly to leave some patching with not much lace.

Aroma: Pine needle and herbal hops with some citrus mingled into the light malty notes.

Taste/ Mouthfeel: Not as hoppy as the nose. Light sweetness with the alcohol balanced nicely. For a pale Ale, this one has a good amount of body. The texture is slightly thick with nice average carbonation. The finish is sweet and somewhat long. The bitterness of the hops diminish before the sweetness.

Overall: I am so glad that this brewery is nearby. One of my favorite beers from Epic!

A cloudy amber beer. Has a creamy ivory head. That leaves a nice lace. The aroma is apple/pineapple/grapefruit with a hint of cereal in the background. The taste starts out with a piney hop note. Followed quickly a light sweet malty character. The hops come back again in the dry finish at the back of the throat.
thanks john

Served from a 22 oz bomber at the Bayou in Salt Lake. Yellow amber with a sizeable head and somewhat hazy. Lots of lace. Fruity aroma with noticeable Cascade hops tones. Flavor is a cross between a good German lager and APA. Not as malty as most APAs and definitely not as sweet. Bitter back end. Lots of carbonation bite.

#5 of my flight of Epic Ales.... Thanks Sammy.

Nice creamy looking off white head... great retention.. big sheets of lace drape with every sip... The brew is slightly hazy orange.

Nose is mild for most Western APA's... but it is certainly within style .... pithy citrus hops... probably Cascade... pale malts shine with touches of toast.

Flavor mirrors the nose with a good pale malt backbone... plenty of hops throughout... pretty standard pale ale... not going to blow your socks off, but this is a pretty good beer... good body and carbonation.

Would I buy this? Sure, assuming it isn't too expensive.

Thanks again buddy.

22oz. Bomber
Classic Series
$3.29 ea.

Pours a cloudy pale copper color, some carbonation, one-finger creamy off-white head, with some sticky lacing and small islands left behind. The nose is hoppy, with a slight caramel malt, very slightly sweet, with some citrus/grapefruit. The taste is hoppy, bitter, slight sweetness, slight citrus note, grapefruit, slight malt. Medium body, the finish is dry and bitter. Would not buy this beer again.
