Epic's Utah Session Series Cans & Uinta Brett Beers
Epic's Session Mid Mountain Mild, SLC Lager and Session IPA will be getting the new packaging sometime in the second quarter of 2017. This great news for consumers that prefer the ease and mobility of cans versus the cumbersome bombers that currently occupy grocery and C-store shelves.
The Mid-Mountain Mild is malt forward with nice biscuit and caramel - The SLC Lager has a smooth, crisp bite, ample hop bitterness, lemony, herbal, bready, with a clean, dry hoppy finish - Epic Session IPA has tropical, papaya and grapefruit with a smidge of sweet malts, Light and bitter.
Brett Sea Legs is a wild interpretation on Uinta's Sea Legs Baltic Porter. It combines cocoa and whiskey and twists it wild funk. The Hopscursion Brett IPA is part of a new trend flips IPAs upside down adding doughy barnyard funk with a bit of tartness. Uinta has also brought back Cockeyed Cooper Barrel Aged Barleywine. This beer took a year hiatus, but it's back now! I'll have my full tasting notes on these and other new stuff tomorrow for New Beer Friday.
