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.

Beerman6686 (4170) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2012
This poured a dark amber to red color with a beige head. Aroma was of light piney hops, caramel and toasted malt. Flavor was moderately bitter, some nuttyness and caramel notes, but not much hop flavor too. Meh.

BelgianBeerGal (3102) - Panama City, Florida, USA - DEC 4, 2012
Release #35 bottle from the brewery. 6.3% alc/vol. This is a beautifully made APA. Big and bold, but also well balanced. Not overpowering at all. Very well done.

(Bottle) Pours hazy copper red to brown with a creamy, sand coloured head. The aroma holds floral/orange-like hops and robust cookie-like malt up front with undertones of candy like fruitiness, grainy bread, back tea, fudgy/doughy caramel and dried herbs. The flavor is light to medium sweet , near medium bitter and robust/medium deep malt and floral/friendly hops. The mouthfeel is round, creamy and soft with a near medium carbonation. Orange, light resinous wood and deep toasted malt. Medium bodied.

_angst_ (2564) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 5, 2012
Bomber bought @ Bierkompass.de. Pours hazy goldenish amber with a frothy brownish golden head that slowly dissipates while leaving lots of thick lacing on the glass. Smell is slightly sweet, fruity, malty and hoppy with sweet bread, pine, resinous wood, orange peal, grapefruit juice, marmalade, alcohol, caramel, pineapple, apricots and mango. Taste is sweet and bitter with sweet dark bread, grapefruit rinds, orange peal, freshly cut grass, pine, resinous wood, lemon peal, peaches, pineapple, marmalade, alcohol, caramel and fired apricots. Mouthfeel is soft, round and medium bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and bitter with bread, grapefruit juice, orange peal, grass, pine, lemon peal and hints of caramel. Not the pale ale I’d prefer but still pretty tasty.
