Copper ConeCopper Cone
Notes: Copper Cone Pale Ale is a special offering, aroma rich, pale ale that may vary the hops, malts and even sometime the yeast used. Typically this beer is an “over the top” Pale Ale with a deep copper color and loads of dry hopping going into each batch. The fresh hop aroma of this beer makes it a stand out.

Pours a deep yet translucent copper
Smells very aromatic, both hops and malt sticking out
Taste is very hoppy with significant malt flavor, this shouldn't be labeled and APA I've had lighter things that are labeled a DIPA
Overall really good

This is an amber not a pale ale. I have rated it as such. The look, smell, and taste are all above average amber. It fails in the category of pale ale.

22oz bottle, at 6.7% ABV. Not quite sure what a 'copper cone' is, but I'm guessing that it has something to do with brewing, yeah?

This beer pours a hazy, dark copper amber colour, with three fingers of puffy, densely foamy, and somewhat bubbly tan head, which leaves a bit of stringy, elongated sudsy lace around the glass as things quickly dissolve.

It smells of bready, doughy pale and caramel malt, a strange, but hardly unwelcome sassy table pepper dustiness, some cedar chest-like woodiness, ethereal citrus notes, and slowly evolving piney and leafy hop bitters. The taste is gritty pale and mildly sweet caramel malt, a still eerie, spicy, and phenolic woodsy character, oversteeped black tea, drowned, and duly muddled citrus notes, and more leafy, weedy, and grassy hoppiness.

The carbonation is rather light and innocuous on its generally frothy feet, the body a solid medium weight, and mostly smooth, the hops and that still 'say whut?' woodiness not delving into any sort of interference pattern of behaviour here. It finishes off-dry, a lingering grainy and caramel sweetness trying to push off from the otherwise weird experience it has endured thus far.

So, yeah. WTF? At first, I thought that the image on the label was of hop cones dangling from the rearview mirror - now I see that they are actually pinecones, and that makes a whole hell of lot more sense here. A well-wrought Yankee pale ale, sure, but that gritty woodiness (pineconiness?) kind of puts me off after a wee spell. Interesting, but jeez, man, maybe a little more info on the label?
