Awful clarity. Chunks. Cloudy. Orange. Extremely Large doughy head; soapy, good retention, nice lacing.

Smells like iced tea. Very light aroma. Pine needles, floral, bubble gum...

Light and crisp. Earthy, dry, Good closure on this brew. Starts wet and earthy and ends nicely bitter and well blended. Brew rounds out nicely with medium carbonation. A bit spongy, chewy, and unfinished.

A recommended brew for $4/22oz., but comes out too light bodied and missing flavors, especially for owning a 6.2% abv. Very lackluster. A good entry level IPA.

Expected more.

The label states the beer was brewed and bottled. at the Epic Brewing Denver facility.

Outstanding appearance with a thick, creamy, white head sitting atop a lusciously dark gold body. Ripe fruit and pine scented hop aroma with an underlying layer of rich malt. Nice mixture of malt sweetness and hop bitterness. Medium-bodied with a sharp, dry finish.

Strong malt backbone with this one with a sweet, caramel-like tone. But what really stands out is the hops, and not so much with the aroma as the flavor. Their very pronounced, sharp, and biting at times, yet still very flavorful and approachable.

The new IPA from the new Epic location in Denver.

Pours a hazy light orange, copper. Head is nice, white, thick foam. Some rockiness. Lacing is sticky

Aroma has that light caramel biscuit going on with hops hugging it tightly. Pine and citrus with some bits of sharp floral.

Flavor has less hops that the aroma, but they are balanced. Quite a good job melding the pine, grassiness, florals and citrus to hit pretty much in rhythm. The caramel malt undertone gives it a bit of a resin taste and feel, though. Booze is noticeable.

It's quite good, not an over-the-top IPA by any means. A bit old school with newer hops

On tap poured into tulip pint at backcountry pizza in boulder Colorado. I guess its epics pioneer brew into Colorado. Great cloudy light orange color. Smell is muted but some fruity hops are present. Taste is really nice...fruity hops are huge but is balanced with a bit of pine. Really thirst quenching and super easy to drink. Reminds me of nebco galaxy but not quite as good...either way I'd get again but I will likely never see it in ct/ny. Deff worth a try.
