COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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. Stronger in alcohol and body than CAPT’N CROMPTON’S PALE ALE and appeals to beer aficionados.

Drake (11469) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 6, 2011
Bomber from Beer Run in Charlottesvilla, VA opened 4/3/11. Pours a slightly hazy orange copper color with a very large creamy white head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of leafy, resiny and vegetal hops. The hops seem very fresh. The taste is bitter earthy, vegetal, spicy, herbal and citrus hops with some faint malty notes. Medium bodied. Interesting beer.

TURDFERGUSON (4036) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 4, 2011

emacgee (4567) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - AUG 4, 2011
Pours a murky amber with one finger of offwhite head. Nose, color, flavor, and palate more like an amber than a pale ale. Crystal malts definitely evident. Herbal piny hop charcter, not super clean. Something like Munich or Victory malt in there too. Kind of weird.

pineypower (2980) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - AUG 2, 2011
Bottle from EZ liquors. Pours out a nice copper color (go figure) with a moderate slightly off white head. Aroma is of citrusy, light pine hops and some light grainy sweet malt notes. Taste is complex with the hops shining through, nice citrus notes combine with light malt sweetness, finishing off with a nice dry dose of hop bitterness. Very enjoyable APA.

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JUL 31, 2011
Aroma of grapefruit with only a slight pine. Pours orange with a big fluffy head. Tastes of bread at first but all the grapefruit and pine come out as soon as the mouth is clear. Love it.

BOLTZ7555 (3014) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 30, 2011
Nice vibrant copper body with a solid, dense ivory head. Aroma of grapefruit, toffee, peppery spice, and caramel. Also some candied citrus and pine resin on the tongue. Pretty full-bodied.

bottle from dave 11/1/10. hazy orange amber with a small tannish head. loads of hoppy goodness in the aroma... pine, grapefruit/citrus, grass and spice mix with pale grain and a touch of caramel sweetness. the flavor is similar... bitter hoppy finish and a waxy aftertaste. caramel malt and the medium body are kept in check nicely. 8/4/8/4/17
