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.

EithCubes (5003) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Bomber, release #24 at 6.4% abv. Nose is nice and hoppy, doughy citrus and enveloping caramel, even a little toffee that’s edging toward chocolate chip. Cloudy/hazy copper-brown body with a foamy, rocky beige head. Taste sweet to start with a little tartness before bitter Betty rears her ugly mug, bright but non-distinct citrus and nice, grassy herbality with doughy, lightly spicy hops underneath. A little nuttier/earthier and this qualifies as a straight-up trail mix brown; as it stands, just a pleasant association. Fullish body, even dense at times, with a little alcohol showing, and very lightly soapy. Good balance. On the whole, very nice, and kudos for releasing something slightly new under the sun!

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 11, 2013
Bomber from douglas88. Thanks! Pours a deep reddish copper with a sticky and persistent offwhite head. Nose is resiny with some low roast and a molasses type note. On tasting, the bitterness is over the top and borderline harsh. The beer is too dry to support the level of bitterness. Resiny and some citrus but not much elegance. Brutal.

StefanSD (2151) - Lakeside, California, USA - MAY 22, 2013
650 ml bottle from bev4less. Pours a cloudy copper color with a medium white head that has good retention. The aroma is mild with sweet grains, hay and a bit of grapefruit. The flavor is bitter hops forward with pine, grapefruit, cashews and caramel. The palate is full and cilky smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes medium in duration and dry. Overall: Decent APA.
