I drank two bombers of this American pale ale in the past week. Both were superb and memorable.

Copperhead pours a solid three fingers of form-fitted ivory foam. The big bubblegum aroma accented by light, leafy hoppiness has a tantalizing appeal. Its taste rolls in waves of cherry–raspberry and red fruit contours swiftly followed by a heavy blanket of complimentary bitterness. This balance is Copperhead’s defining hallmark, allowing easy access to the bitter and the sweet of it. Rounding out its essential properties are thick gobs of lace trailing from an immovable head and a full, chewy mouthfeel.

This is not a complex or high-art beer, but a simple, elegant ale suitable for everyday consumption. And at $3.50 a bomber, Copperhead is an excellent value. Enjoy it fresh as the beer is not bottle-conditioned or pasteurized.

Very pretty pale ale with a dark amber/mahogany color. Not much smell (faint cloves) as I pour my bomber into a pint glass, but a nice, lacy head to get me started. A bit more carbonated that I usually like, this brew has a nice taste of grapefruit rind, toasted malt, and a hint of caramel. A bit of a gastric challenge what with all the carbonation, but a very decent session brew nonetheless...

22 oz. bottle pours a dark amber color with a slight head that fades quickly. Smell is grainy, yeasty with floral hops. Medium bodied with a clean, crisp mouthfeel. Nicely balanced taste is malty, grainy with a fresh hop flavor . Finishes with a fresh, perfumy hop taste on the palate; of course shopping at the brewery will do that.

drink fresh....drink local.

Orange gold color, slightly cloudy, medium head. A medium bodied American Pale Ale. Malty and fairly aggressively hopped. Nice flavor, a slight citrus taste. Good balance. Smooth. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is malty and slightly bitter.

Appearance – Light orange body with a big head that laced the heck out of my glass.

Smell – Lots of different hop aromas in there. No real fruit other than a lemon or lime rind, but very distinctive and sharp. There’s a little bit of pine, but nothing floral to speak of.

Taste – The hops come out right away. There’s also a strong grapefruit flavor that comes on mid-way through. Somewhat one-dimensional, but good.

Mouthfeel – Flat and smooth, in accordance with the style.

Drinkability – This went down well, but I would have liked to have seen a little more complexity and balance.

Dark golden hue with brilliant clarity when decanted off the yeast. Ivory white head is Belgianesque in its thickness, stiffness and persistence. Sheets of foam remain. Soft light caramel malt runs parallel with mellow citrusy hops in aroma, with secondary notes of biscuit and pearish esters-- seems to be the trademark of their yeast strain. Bready, wheaty sweetness upfront in flavor melds into a subtle caramel malt presence. A snap of chewy, maltose like sweetness emerges mid palate is quickly offset by mild, clean hop bitterness. Mild tangerine hop flavor complements the bready malt character lending a marmalade on toast impression late. Lightly bodied overall, but crisp and passably dextrinous in mouthfeel. Finishes with slight acidic twang and fading hop bitterness, but otherwise dry and clean. A balanced, no frills, quaffable American pale and an enjoyable session brew all around.

A real head maker this dark amber colored beer, the head is monstrous in size, spumescent in texture, the color a light tan and the residual lace a nice sheet to conceal the glass. Big malt nose, sweet and clean, a pleasure to sniff, start as with the nose big on the malt lightly sweet. Pleasantly acidic, delightfully hopped, dry lingering aftertaste and a good representative “Pale Ale”, and well worth a sample.
