A hyperbolic superlative. Often used to express an otherwise unquantifiable difference between two or more subjects or concepts. "This coffee is epic, its so strong it could melt a tank."
Movie trailers should stop using so many hyperlatives, nothing is the greatest anything of all time.

An extension of superlative.

It is essentially a word used to describe the greatness of something in an inappropriate context.

Examples include 'experience', 'sensation' and 'revolution'.
"This groundbreaking new rice cracker is a revelation - a whole new experience in taste sensations." has a bad case of hyperlative usage.
