3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Dispensed a dark amber-hued body featuring good clarity and an off-white head.
Smell: Copper Creek’s APA smells of pale malts, toasted barley, floral, citrusy hops, and a flickering of crystal malt.
Taste: Opens with pale malts, lightly toasty accents, and a small hint of sweet caramel. Faint fruitiness. Hops give florals and a taste of white grapefruit. Moderate bitterness. The taste as well as the body thins out on the back half. Drying, bitterish finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-light carbonation.
Drinkability: Simple but solid and ultimately an OK American Pale Ale.

Pours a light copper color with a slight orange tint. Aroma and taste of watered down hops with minimal aftertaste. A light tasting beer that was refreshing but lacked any complexity.

Decent NW APA, i.e. the hops are highlighted. Poured an orangey copper with light citrus ad pine hops. Well balanced with decent malt and good carbonation. A very sessionable beer and nice to enjoy at the bar. Well done.
