A Note on This Beer
It took Epic Brewing 18 months of tireless effort to get the formula just right for their Tart ‘n Juicy Sour IPA but now that they’ve done it, they have one of the biggest zesty and fruity hits of the summer on their hands.
The Bros of BeerAdvocate immediately recognize the effort, awarding it with a massive 97 rating. They exclaim about its appealing fruity resonance so ultra real, it drinks more like a delicious fresh squeezed grapefruit juice with added hints of IPA and Sour Ale giving it extra nuance.
To bring these two styles together is a very difficult balancing act. Sour Ales require time to develop while IPAs demand that you drink them as fresh as possible. Tart ‘n Juicy hits on the exact point that maximizes both, creating a juicy juggernaut that blasts your taste buds out of the park with every sip.
Hazy orange gold with white foam, this Sour Ale looks jam-packed full of fruit. Grapefruit and fresh lime skin aromas rush upwards. Nectarous tropical hop notes of passion fruit and mango fill it out with jamminess. Orange and blueberry hop essence follows through on the tongue along with a refreshing tartness. A brief stroke of resin fits right in with the electric grapefruit powered zest.
With a background of adding fruit flavors flawlessly to beer in their Brainless Series, Epic is primed for success for Tart ‘n Juicy. It might be the next beer from them to bring home a big award - come taste it before it gets any more famous!
