3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
September 4th, 2014 - On the way out from a recent visit to Epic Brewing, we grabbed a couple bottles, one as a present, and one for myself - the selfishness tax. And that bottle was their Copper Cone Pale Ale, a brunette beer which kicks up more than a few fingers of foam. The aroma has a lot of the traits of a hoppy red ale, which a high and rusty aroma, but additional sampling brings in some bananas, bubble gum, strawberry, passion fruit and generally the impression that the scent is "juicy", blended with a nice hoppy bitterness. The flavor starts sweeter, but flattens out quickly. The long aftertaste is dominantly hoppy, with just a dab of lingering strawberry. The middle is briefly bitter too, but that quickly evaporates once the clearer hoppy notes come through.

Rating #2108 - 2015.10.08 - Bottle from CBI Golden pour with a bubbly, lasting white foam. Aroma is citrusy, grapefruit notes, mild grassiness, mild floral, piney scent.Taste is a blast of grapefruity hop character whose bitterness evolves to define this beer, a bold bitterness following a crisp, floral,resinous, citrusy sweetness

Draft pour pint at The Collective, as part of the Epic brewers night. Cloudy golden pour with a piney hop aroma. Thick body with pine, and grassy hops and a subtle sweetness in the finish. Overall a pretty good pale.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: hazy pale amber with two fingers of rocky light tan head, good retention and patchy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: resiny pine, citrus, caramel malt, lightly nutty. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (8/10) Medium-light body tending a little to the watery, moderate carbonation, lingering finish. (4/5)
Nicely done APA. Heck, it would be fine as an IPA, except for the slightly light body. No tricks, no gimmicks, just a straight-up, hop-forward pale. Well worth trying. (16/20)

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very well done beer. Nothing too crazy but an easy sipper with a well balanced profile. Pours a bright golden yellow with a finger of dense white head. Light carbonation in the body with an aroma of light citrus and floral hops, a pinch of spice and a light toasted malt base. Very well balanced with a medium body, crisp and moderately bitter finish. Well done
