Notes/Commercial Description:
Who needs precious metals, when you’ve got Copper?! This copper colored ale is a real crowd-pleaser. Copperhook strikes the perfect balance of smooth, rich, malty flavor you’d expect from a craft brew with a lighter body and hop profile that makes it a perfect “session” beer when you’ve got a long day ahead of knocking back a few with your buddies.

North Carolina

3.33/5  rDev +0.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into nonic pint glass.

A - Amber/orange with some moderate haze. About a half inch of white head rises with fairly short retention; some lacing.

S - Big biscuit aromas hit me immediately and mingle with slightly toasted grain to become a sort of graham cracker smell. Small amounts of caramel and butterscotch are noticable as well with a tiny bit of herbal hops hiding in the background.

T - Very sweet for an APA; biscuits and graham crackers hit immediately rounded out by butterscotch and sweet bread. Sweetness reminiscent of honey persists before a minimally earthy and herbal note late palate. Vague grassy/hoppy flavors floated around in the finish but the brew was dominated by biscuity sweetness.

M - Great light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Though the beer is a bit sweet for my tastes there's a nice balance of carbonation to keep things from getting out of hand.

D - An easy drinking brew, but the sweetness can detract over time. With all the bread and biscuit flavors, and the lack of any definitive hoppiness, Copperhook feels like it should be a blonde ale. A well done and tasty beer, even if a bit simple.
