look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12 oz bottle served in a Belgian Snifter.

Pours a clear, deep amber; a shade darker than average for style.

Flavor: good balance, if a bit higher in the malt/hop ration than usual for style.

Feel: crisp, near medium body with a semi-dry finish.

O: well balanced, slightly mild version of an APA.

12 oz into pint glass. My mom just picked this up for me, so I know its not fresh. Close to a year old I bet. But not bad. Copper in color, true to title, and crystal clear. I dont know what a copper ale is supposed to be like, but I think I like this beer. I'd give it another try fresh, and rated it higher here to reflect that (not the brewers fault Trader Joe's don't move their inventory).

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a lighter copper kind of orange color with a nice big and thick just off white two finger head. The head has a great level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a nice level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is lighter overall but consists of a nice blend of caramel, cracker malt and a decent hop profile. The hop is rather complex in nature consisting of floral, citrus, grassy and some pine notes.

Taste – The taste begins with a drier cracker and bready malt taste with a hint of caramel sweetness. The caramel leaves quickly leaving the taste quite dry. The hop flavors then start coming to the tongue. At first a light citrus greets the tongue, remaining rather light through the taste. Other hop flavors of an earthy and grassy nature come to the tongue soon after though giving the brew a rather hoppy taste overall. Toward the end a little bit of a floral hop taste comes to the tongue, which, in the end, with the loss of the sweet and the presence of all the hop a rather crisp and diversely hopped taste is left to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the lower side with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. A bit more body may have been nicer for supporting the hop and would have balanced the brews flavors slightly more appropriately.

Overall – A rather decent brew, although not quite what I was expecting for a “copper ale” (as described by brewer as I was expecting something maltier and sweeter). As an APA though it is very appropriate in flavor and a nice one to try.

Drank out of standard pint glass. I love me some carbonation, so this beer is great. fizzy and awesome. copper color just like stated on label! smell is pretty neutral. very close to the right amount of hops/malt ratio for this to be a great session beer. a little malt heavy though for serious work. anyways, this is a great beer and I will gladly drink more of it!

Draught @ Headkeeper: This one pours a crystal clear, golden color. There was just a wisp of a white head on it. There was no lacing. The nose is lighter yet nice. Grassy and earthy hops, some malts. The taste is good. It is slightly bitter and dry. Earthy hops, some malts in background. Pretty good!

Long live APAs!

A: Great looking, accessible, coppery beer. Nice carbonation, head, with solid lacing.

S: I enjoy the pine and dried grapefruit is atop toasted grains. lovely aroma.

T: The flavor is citrus, pine,& dry hops which balance the toasted grain base. Sweet upfront, then nicely balanced. Excellent and accessible. A great food beer. Sessionable.

M: creamy, tingly, refreshing. Easy to drink back to back. Will definitely have this again.

O: Spring APA. Great APA. Excellent level of hops, complimented by grain base. Delicious balance. Accessible craft .
