Brewery: Epic Brewing Company
Style: American IPA
Other Notes: “Praise the haze”
Brewer Description: (from website) These juicy, hazy, hop bombs are packed to the brim with flavor. In fact, we’ve been downright irresponsible when it comes to hop utilization. Our brewers have been experimenting with everything from lupulin powder, to massive hop backs, exploring the flavor synergies of fermentation hopping, and literally cramming in more dry hops then our tanks can even hold. Our New England-Style IPA rotates through different recipes as and hop charges as we source new and interesting hop verities. See the side of the can for indicators about each new recipe.
