    @Dorn, we just got Epic brews on the market in Cascadia, and they taste great. I had an Imperial IPA from the Exponential series. Super smooth and crisp for a 9.6%. Not excessively boozy. The Hopulent IPA was also a winner, bright and citrusy to balance out the hops. Both went down really easy for the alcohol content.
