Well, did the taste test.
First thing to note is I used NZ Cascade only, Epic uses US Cascade only.

Second, please excuse the nasty bottle of wine in the background, player of the day prize for SWMBO.

Third sorry for the pics, camera ran outta juice so used the cell instead. If you want I can out some better pics up tomorrow.

My brew, the All American American is on the left and the Epic Pale Ale is on the right.

Initial thoughts are.
The nose on the AAA is stronger than the EPA.
The bitterness on the AAA is more pronounced than the EPA.
SWMBO liked the AAA more than the EPA.
The EPA is not a cloudy as the AAA.
The AAA doesn't seem to have hop sweetness if that makes any sense.

I think the NZ Cascade fit better than the US Cascade. Personal choice I suppose, but I love hops and for me, the AAA is the better beer of the two. If I could get the clearness of the EPA I'd be onto a winner.

I'll try and answer any questions if anyone has any :-)
