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.

12oz bottle 8/7/12 (Cellar Rat-MCI)-Pours an amberish copper with a small off white head. Aroma of hops and malt. Taste of the same with more hops and some caramel. This medium bodied brew is pretty darn tasty.

bartzluke (99) - Oklahoma, USA - MAR 11, 2015
UPDATED: APR 7, 2015 12 pour from a refrigerated bottle into a pils glass. Great pour. Very fluffy head. Lasting with good lacing. Great copper color, nice carbonation, and clear as day. Beautiful beer. Creamy mouthfeel. Nose is malty, a little piney, a little resiny. Taste is bitter, light hops, light malt. Very balance beer. A great pale ale.

JonLaRue (34) - St Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Sourced from a 12 oz bottle. Remimds me a lot of thin maple syrup. Acid at the front, hops and then a sweet finish. This thing is hoppy, its more of the english style hoppy beers rather than a citrus style.

TheAlum (6146) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - FEB 17, 2015
Flight pour on tap at the brewery (Lawrence, KS). Pours a nice glowing copper pour, a bit fiery and near transparent with that luscious ruby red body and glow. Frothy offwhite head is sizable, cakey with good retention and lacing. Aromas present grapefruit and citrusy hops, touches of gentle bready malts, a bit of biscuit and earth. A bit spritzy, hoppy and citric as it settles and warms. Initial is fuzzy and bitter, a good hit of "C" hops gives floral bitterness, pithy grapefruit and rind oils. Some gentle bread and earth, grass. A firmer hop profile and bitterness grows as a wave on the palate. A bit earthy, bready, that cool and bitter citric and grapefruit element flows well, hits the senses with a nice hop character. While the malt bill shows just a touch of depth, this one ends up fairly C hop-centric and bitter, a bit earthy and fairly session worthy. Nice stuff. Potent hoppy nose, good look and a nice flow on the palate with a firmer hop element that it’s overwhelming. Tasty.

DBob5150 (206) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - JAN 31, 2015
On tap at Grinders downtown KC, pours a nice copper-orange with a thick white head that lasts. Aroma is hops, some pine. Taste is a more subtle hops, slightly mild for an IPA. Finish is clean, recommended.

cbfobes (2636) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - JAN 5, 2015
On tap at 2014 GTMW, pours a dark copper amber with an off white head, the aroma has some pine and hops on the nose with more of a malty touch to it, the flavor has a nice hop front end with a pretty balanced caramel and malt finish, pretty easy drinking and not that bad at all.

Bacterial (1960) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - DEC 16, 2014
Deep copper pour from a 12oz bottle with a nice white head. Citrus nose with a slight malt character. Easy drinking, nice hop profile, just a little bitterness in the finish. Solid.
