COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
While walking through a field and enjoying a lazy summer evening, our head brewer Steve stepped on a stick that popped up and nicked his leg. Or so he thought, until he found two puncture marks on his ankle. The copperhead bite may have caused a trip to the hospital for Steve, but it also provided just the inspiration he and Chuck needed to name their new beer – yep, one lowly snake in the grass is the namesake of one of our most popular beers.

Pint at the brew pub pours a hazy copper color with a thin white head . Aroma is dominated by citrusy hops. Flavor is lots of hops up front with a nice malty sweetness in the finish.

[914-20071205] Growler (c/o PhillyBeer2112, w/ him, boboski, DragonStout, redlight). Candied pine cone floral resin aroma. Slightly hazy, dark orange brown body with quick off-white bubbles. Initially bitter grainy grass flavour with a metallic and sweet finish. Medium body finishes bitterly. A little past prime but not bad.

Thanx to Philly2112. Caramelly with some pine in the aroma. Pours pale amber. Slightly oxidized from being in the growler for too long but there was still a good beer in there! Citrus and pine flavors, some apple skins. Good.

Shared from a growler at the Cincy gathering. Poured amber in color with a small off white head. The aroma was floral and pine hops with a little malt sweetness and a slight funk. The flavor was hoppy with citrus being more prominent (missing from the nose?), sweet malt, wheat bread and some vanilla. A touch on the thin side, but easy to drink. Thanks to mreusch for the trade.

Growler shared by alexsdad06 at Cinncy gathering. An amber pour wht a light white lace and head. A hoppy malty aroma that is clean. Flavor of sweet malt with a good bitter. A bit thin but smooth palate. A good beer with good hops. I like it.

Shared with the Cincinnati folks. Clear amber color out of the growler with a thin off white head. Piney hop nose with some toffee sweetness. The flavor tended towards the grapefruit and orange juice hops with a toffee and bread backbone. Solid IPA.

hopson (635) - Williamsville, New York, USA - SEP 24, 2007
growler from a very generous trader, mreusch. This beer was highly drinkable, and something I would love to have around as a sessionable pale ale. Not much in the way of over the top hop flavor, but that’s okay here, enjoyable.

Growler. Darkish amber body, beautiful offwhite head, fruity nose with a hint of grains. Fairly thin flavor, with fruits, finishing breadiness, some bitterness. Quaffable.

From a fresh growler provided to me by Matt, served in a standard pint glass: Yep, it is indeed copper hued with an initial good frothy head and left some lace upon the glass. The 2nd pour was more violent and produced a better head and lace.

The aroma has notes of grapefruit and apple esters, piney and spicy hops, carmel and bready malts and a hint of mineral water. The taste starts with a controlled citric bitterness and resiny midesection supported by a layer of toffee and grainy malts. Surprised by a fleeting nature of this beer where the finish is metallic and hop spiced, shorter than expected.

The mouth feel is moderately carbonated and as good body for the genre, again the finish is a bit to metallic considering it is not a hop bomb. No alcohol detected. All in all a solid brew that is not a big enamel scraping IPA. THANKS for the growler.
