This beer was another mcmenamins dissapointment ale. The appearance looks alright; its a nice clear amber color. The head lacing is alright, but disappears quickly. The taste is all hop and very little malt. I do not know if they only use huge amounts of bittering hops for this beer and no aroma hops at all, but that is the impression I get. This beer is also very thin and has a terrible aftertaste that is strongly metallic (maybe thats where the copper in the name comes from).

Overall, this is not a remarkable beer, but for all you folks that thank copious amounts of hops are all you need to make a good beer, you might like it.

Sampled 7/17/2011 at the Vancouver WA location (on the Columbia).

Pours clear amber, some white head that doesnt last long.

Aroma is mostly bitter and malty with some light hop presence including a bit of pine and flowers.

Flavor is malty, bitter, caramel, a tiny bit citrusy, not all that exciting really but refreshing all the same.

Light body, drinkable.
