3.33/5 rDev +0.6%
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.

3.16/5 rDev -4.5%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25
Appearance: no surprise, it is a copper colored ale. Pours about a 1 1/2" head that dissipates rapidly leaving moderate lacing. Moderate carbonation.
Aroma: mild aroma, smell of toasted grains and sweet malt
Mouthfeel: mouthfeel is watery and carbonated. Sweetness predominates but there is some mild hop to balance it. Finish is semi-dry.
Flavor: flavor is consistent throughout with a blend of malt and hops.
Overall: I really enjoy Copperhook and recommend it if you like session ales, Copper/Red ales, or if your palate runs more towards malt than hops.
