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.

Strykzone (5004) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - FEB 15, 2014
Pint at Three Kings. Despite the name this is better classified as an IPA. It is very much hop forward. The appearance is hazed and coppery with a one finger layer of white foam that has good retention. It is not quite a classic west coast IPA but is definitely in that genre. Citrus that has a bite to it from the hops and that dominates. Lesser malt. A nice beer.

seymour (1456) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - FEB 3, 2014
Poured from 12oz brown bottle into a nonic glass. Reddish amber colour with weak off-white foam and lots of chill haze. Caramel malt sweetness, predictable American C-hops. Light-medium body, average carbonation, grapefruity, hoppy aftertaste. True-to-style APA, not bad but nothing special nor memorable.

12oz Bottle thanks to Darrel. Pours out a copper topped with a small head. Nose is light hop floral and malt sweetness. Taste is a little grapefruit peel and a touch of sweetness. Pretty light on the hops.

Bif (1496) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 5, 2013
On tap at Shamrocks. Served a clear dark copper color with a nice head that fades slowly to good lacing. Aroma of citrus, malt sweetness with some caramel and grain. Taste of malt sweetness and caramel, citrus and grain. Nice bitterness and a clean finish. Medium body, crisp and refreshing, with a decent balance. Nice beer for the style, goes down quite easy.

thegreenrooster (3241) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Pour is a amber with a small white head. Aroma is a decent sweet malt with a little lingering hop. Flavor is a decent mix of the malts and hops. Malts are sweet and caramel and the hops are earthy and bitter. An ok beer. I wish the hops were a little more forward as this is more about the malts.

Clear yellow/gold with a big white head. Citrus hops, toasted grain, a bit of bread, doughy malts. Earthy hops on the finish.

Bottle, thanks Russ! Malty aroma with some hops. Pours amber colored with a moderate off white head and good lacing. Smooth and malty to start. Finishes dry with a good hoppy bite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RedEft (154) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Poured a pretty, deep copper with a perfect white head. Aroma is floral hops. Mouthfeel is slightly oily, but the taste is crisp floral notes at the front, the middle turns sweet -almost fruity - and finishes with a moderate bitter. This is pretty good stuff. Not quite an IPA to me, but good.
