A dry and hoppy pale ale brewed with bold citrus cascade paired with fruity and earthy notes from the Belgian yeast. A fusion of two very popular beers at Copper Kettle.

On tap at the Copper Kettle. We were told this was the Copper Mezzina with Belgian yeast. It looked identical to the copper mezzina. Smell was hops and esters. Flavor was pretty good, hoppy pale ale with a belghe ian influence but overall I would prefer the Copper Mezzina. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 01-14-2012 21:16:37

Tap @ brewery. Slightly hazy, golden orange appearance with a white head. Orange-grapefruity citrusy, a touch piney, belgian yeasty aroma. Peppery, moderate fruit esters, tangy, citrusy, mild piney hoppy flavor. Easy drinking but the black pepper note is pretty strong.

Clear orange copper with a thin and laceful head. Nice nose of citrus rind, yeasty bubblegum, and a fair dose of pale cereal grains. Nice full flavor of west coast citrus hops, with a restrained but firm bitterness, following through with earthy, bready yeast tones that ends kinda fruity with that bubblegum-like tone of Belgian yeast. Kinda peppery throughout, maybe too hoppy overall. Pretty nice!

Tap at CK - hazy light amber - kind of a hybrid of Belgian and American pales - has a rather high hop profile for the style - a mix of peppery hops and fruity (possibly German?) hops - however, they work rather well with the mildly peppery phenols of the yeast - malts are a bit crisp and crackery up front, but get a bit sweet through the middle and finish - some tropical notes on the tail end, with lingering peppery character - a tad dusty/earthy - a little hefty and sweet for the style (for me, anyway; I like my Belgian pales light and crisp), but still a solid beer.
