Copper ale comes in just as claimed, copper. Thin 1/3" white head. Caramel aroma, but not a lot of hops, maybe some Cascade, but not dry hopped.

Taste was average run of the mill non descript beyond the cliche descriptor kind of thing, balanced, grain, 40 ibu stuff.

It is what it is.

Single track copper ale growler filled 7/2016 on Long Island, NY.

Chilled brew poured into a newcastle half pint glass. Paler than "copper", I'd say. This is a pleasant, very quaffable small beer with a longlasting hoppy bitterness over a thin malt background. Pretty good beer. I like the fact that this beer, unlike most modern ales, doesn't have much of that flowery aromatic hop character. However, I prefer a drink with a little more malt body.

Pours with a orange-ish gold, with just a slight hint of a haze. Two finger thick head of small bubbles, which quickly dissipate into nothingness. The smell is light, and the only note I detect is caramel.

Upfront, the dominant taste is of caramel, with a slight hop bitterness. The can describes this a medium bodied beer, and that seems just right. However, the taste fades after a few seconds, with a finish that feels like a light beer. I don't notice any rye spiciness.

I had high hopes for this beer, and was hoping for something like Sierra Nevada's rye ale. However, the body and taste of this beer do not deliver a memorable or unique experience. The first impression of this beer seems like an interesting 'medium bodied' beer, but the lack of finish or additional notes is a disappointment.

Pours a light hazy orangey-copper with a light white head with decent retention. The aroma is barely there with just a little bit of biscuit. The taste is equally absent, with just faint notes of caramel malt sweetness. The body has a decent weight to it, smooth throughout.

A few months past the best by date.

Aroma is very floral, lightly citrusy, piney, and has a substantial caramel, nutty toasted malt backbone. Flavor reveals more floral hop character at the base, with a moderately bitter finish and a toasted malt backbone. Notes of grapefruit surface, but the perfumey, floral hops dominate. Malt presence contributes well to the profile. A little too floral, but a nice change of pace.

Pours a bright copper with a thin head. The smell has a bit of citrus and malt flavor in there. The taste is a spike of hop in the beginning with heavy flavors, almost like a banana bread flavor with the malt coming through for the finish giving this beer a sweeter profile than I was expecting. Not bad.

I'm a fan of this one, though admittedly I drink it a lot less than I used to these days. It's a solid APA, not overly hoppy and not too sweet either. Better than people give it credit for, to be sure.

Still on sale so I’m still buying them.

A&S: The brew is lively and almost transparent copper (go figure) in color. Head is white and frothy and leaves some lacing on the glass. No heavy bananas but like a banana bread of sorts. There is some citrus (orange) presence and not much sweetness.

T&M: Extrorianly average tasting beer, almost tastes like boston lager. Light malts, medium grade sweetness and bitterness. Non-bitter, non-dry bready finish. Feel is pretty good. It has a good profile not too full not too light. Carbonation is a high but not sharp and prickly.

Overall: Not a recommended beer, like I said it is a little below average. Probably will never have again even in a situation of low selection.
