22 oz bottle. Pours hazy golden copper with a big frothy white head that retains well and laces the glass. There's some big chunky floaties.

The aroma is biscuity malts with grassy, minty hops.

The flavor is sweet biscuity malts and some minty soapiness with a big grassy bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, it's got a lot of bitterness, but I don't like the hop flavor or the biscuit malt.

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.

Just alright. Not a lot of hop. No citrus. Mostly cat pee smell
