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.

Terminus (3371) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 31, 2012
bottle-purchased at the brewery-Aug 2012-pours hazy copper hue with a small soapy eggshell head. nose is big carmel malts, pine hops, woody notes, lite green apples, err, wait alot of green apples. flavors exhibit the green apples and carmel malts with an undertone of piney hops. wow, this is very over-rated. I cant get past the green apple notes here!!! Its too bad-this is a very well made beer however, something went wrong on fermentation. That green apple is over the top!!!!!! ugh....so sad. If this didnt have that infection, it would have been very high 3 rating. I can tell it has a nice malt and hop combo, a more malty, almost ESB-ish type of APA here. infection gets the best of it though....

Sask89 (498) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAY 12, 2015
On tap at Epic Brewing in Denver. Pours a very cloudy copper colour with a medium tan head. Aroma has a light hop and fruit character to it. Taste is a little sweet throughout and not too bitter. Smooth mouth feel, medium body, and lightly carbonated for a pale ale. Overall it’s a pretty good beer.

ajnepple (3599) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - FEB 3, 2015
On tap at the Denver brewery. Dark orange, light amber and pretty clear appearance with an off-white head and light lacing. Aroma of light hop resin, pine, floral notes and citrus fruits. Similar flavor, medium resinous hop bitterness and light malty sweetness. Medium body with soft carbonation and a light dry finish. A nice hoppy, yet easy drinking pale ale.

HIGHB4LL (835) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 30, 2014
Release #12. 12 oz. can from Supermarket Liquors. Appearance: 2 finger white head, straw gold color, clear, good lacing. Aroma:pine, grass, caramel, light sweet caramel, metallic. Palate: light body, average carbonation, bitter finish, slightly sticky. Taste: light sweet caramel into slightly watery and metallic with some metallic astringency and pine bitterness coming into a mild bitter finish. The metallic taste is obviously intentional, so it is well done. Very enjoyable and unique. Drinkable.

Easily one of the best PAs I’ve had. My can’s clocking in at 5.2% ABV. Here’s what I get. Flavorful beyond words for this style as well as for this ABV, and an incredibly amazing malt backbone. Highly recommended. My rating reflects the style and the ABV.

Aroma: hay, flowers, intense caramel. Appearance: hazy brown, small, white head. Taste: medium sweet. Palate: initially sweets continue, caramel, then bitters coming up, floral hops, getting dry in the long finish. Overall: very nice APA, massive aroma and palate.
