Epic Hopulent IPA

epic_hopulent_ipa

This is a big IPA from Epic Brewing in Salt Lake City, Utah.   The coloration is a golden amber, the scent is floral and citrus and sweet.  The head is beautiful and creamy.  The flavor is powerful.  Very bitter pine resin and very sweet orange citrus flavors, with a good bit of alcohol burn behind it.   This beer possibly should have been cellared to mellow a bit.  At the moment, I’m finding the strength of the components to be a bit overwhelming for my taste buds.  There’s too much sweetness to appeal to hopheads, and too much bitterness to appeal to fans who don’t enjoy hoppy beers.

I give this one a 3.1 out of 5.
