Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: Pretty hazy light amber color, or sort of rusty light copper. A white head recedes to a film with nice random soapy patches of lacing.

Aroma: Really clean pine notes, grapefruit zest, bitter hops.

Taste: Starts off with woody pine, cedar notes then a splash of grapefruit citrus. Finishes clean and bitter.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, dry.

Overall: All around good flavor and aroma, not dominated by anything, equal pine and citrus.

This is a little skunky. Let me state straight off it is not bad beer, it reminds me of N.Z. Steinlager. Except it is an ale. As my taste for IPA's is reaching into loving the great ones, my review of this one is I live in Colorado, and this beer does the great beers from here a disservice. It is good, but far from great, and does not have the nice piney resin, citrus notes of a great IPA. It has the bitterness, with out the richness of a great IPA such as something from a nano brewery, or Odell's sublimely excellent IPA. For $2.00 more per six pack you can have a beer you will love, vs this that tastes okay with a pizza. Sorry. I won't be having this again soon. Give me a Stone, give me some New Belguim, Give me a goddamn awesome Comrade Super Power IPA out of Denver. Epic should raise their game.

Had this on tap at Smith's Billiards in Springfield, MA. The beer had a murky yellow appearance with little to no head. Aromas included some bready citrus, mostly orange and maybe peach. Taste followed the nose with a generally sweet, tangerine citrus flavor. Carbonation was decent; not too crisp or creamy. Overall, I enjoyed the smell-taste combination.

Smells of sweet orange with a nice malty background. Liking the smell of this beer. The flavor is tangerine/citrus like with minimal malts coming through. Not much in the bitterness department, mildly bitterness with the citrus flavor
lingering on the finish. Well carbonated and a bit wet on the finish. Good if not a bit watery and underpowered.
