In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


EPIC Brewing Company Hop Syndrome

Aroma: “Clean, light, bready aroma with a mineral background. Low sulfur notes. Nice, simple hops aroma. Malt becomes more apparent as it warms.”

Flavor: “Hops bitterness is the first impression. Very approachable, but bitterness lingers for a long time in the aftertaste. Soft malt softens the substantial bitterness. Aftertaste favors smoky phenols. Some lemon notes.”

Overall: “Clean and full flavored pils. Well made and well within the style guidelines. I would be happy to find this in my glass anytime. Easy enough to drink, but the hops flavors add more than just complexity.”
