BEER INFO

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

Style: American 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.

Tasty and well-balanced. Not as hoppy as Congress Street and others, but really tasty except in direct comparison.

Hazy tangerine color with a thin head.
Citrus, grapefruit on nose, improves as it warms - maybe some mango or other tropical fruit.
Taste of orange, tangerine, grapefruit, slight pine and spice.
Medium bodied, medium carbonation.
Overall, really nice DIPA with good balance of citrus and hops. Wish I got more on the nose, but still excellent.

Amber orange pour. Solid Portland Maine IPA. Very good for IPA. Has quite a bit of bitterness, and a strong finish with aftertaste of hops. Not as strong as Heady Topper.

8/11/18...pours bright brilliant gold with ring of white foam. Citrus nose. Malt forward flavor. Chewy mouthfeel. Surprisingly bready in the background. Gravitates towards being a pale ale. Tasty.

Semi-transparent straw color with a white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is a hoppy with a citrus accent. Taste is also a hoppy with a citrus accent.

Finally after 3 years got my hands on a 16 0z can that survived a friend's 2 wk vacation unchilled. Pours a beautiful gold, dark on top, light on bottom. Has a nice white foamy head that leaves bubbly lacing behind. The aroma is rich with flowers and tropical fruit. The taste follows with an earthy bitter follow through. The mouthfeel is creamy.

Pours amber orange with an active head during pouring which fades to a small fluffy off-white head moderately quickly and clings nicely to the sides of the glass leading to significant lacing during drinking. Aroma is of grassy, citrus hops with a bit of dank thrown in. Taste follows with a big burst of grassy hops with citrus & touches of light sweetness of peach, floral, & caramel malt. Each sip ends with just a hint of biting bitterness. The taste overall reminds me somewhat of Heady; this is not a juicy fruity NEIPA, but it is an excellent IPA with great flavour & mouthfeel.
