EPIC BREWING FIRST BATCH NZIPA

Epic Brewing Company First Batch NZIPA. It is a bit hard to find information on this beer. One claim is “the first beer in the world brewed with newly released Waimea Hops form NZ”. Good hops.

At first glance it has a lovely coppery colour, but when held to the light it appears very thin, and that pretty much sums up this beer. It has a floral hoppy aroma that fades very quickly. The not overly bitter hoppy bite has a beautifully oleaginous mouthfeel and then it all fades away.

I thoroughly enjoyed this beer, but the initial impressions left me feeling that it should be so much better. It was the first batch with new hops and with this brewer’s pedigree it can only improve. Here’s hoping.

 

8/10
