BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Foundation Brewing Company
Maine, United States
foundationbrew.com

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
We indulged in our desire to create an IPA that personifies the vivid flavors that can be coaxed from the hop cone, painted on a canvas of soft malt that allows the flavors to shine through. Extensively hopped in the kettle and in the fermentor, we spared nothing in making this beer.

Epiphany was designed to showcase the glorious flavor and aromatics of hops without any astringent bitterness.

Citrus, tropical fruit and pine blend to provide you with a sublimely juicy hop experience.

East or west coast? No. This is a Maine IPA.

Very juicy and citrusy. Slight haze, but not overly done to be lumped into the “NE IPA” style. Delicious and scary crushable 8.0% DIPA.

On tap at Nocturnem Draft Haus in Bangor ME. Pours an opaque burnt yellow color with a nice, persistent head. Initial impression is a huge dose of tropical fruits - mango, orange, grapefruit, peach, and probably some others in there - nicely balanced by malts. Mouthfeel is smooth and sticky; carbonation is perfect. Alcohol is well hidden - very easy to drink. Finish is smooth and gentle - very little residual bitterness.
My first beer from Foundation, and I must say I'm mightily impressed!
