WesKBob (563) - Bethany, Oklahoma, USA - APR 19, 2013
On tap at bar in Phoenix Airport (marketed as Barrio Copperhead Pale Ale). Pours a dark gold color. Moderate off-white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Mild grassy, earthy hop aroma. Flavor is similar, but muted. A little thin. Drinkable but nothing to write home about.

Caytinator (899) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUN 22, 2013
Pint on tap. Golden color, persistent head...light hay aroma. Bitter and piney for an "english pale ale" but I liked pretty well, I’d definitely order another on tap. Just an enjoyable afternoon beer.

Strykzone (4826) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Draft at BJs in Tucson. Clear and golden. A smallish head. This is gently hopped but they are somewhat complex. Malts are not bad. This is a nice pale ale with wrst coast influences but more, too.

dchmela (2614) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 30, 2012
Growler from the brewery. Copper gold pour with thick white head. Very fresh citrus and pine hop aroma. Resiny hop bitterness with a nice crisp malt taste. Good session brew.

Ibrew2or3 (6782) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 1, 2012
Growler pour with deep clear gold body and copper hues supporting an off white head. The aroma offers up spicy hops, a bit of earthy hops as well as roasty malts, a bit of earthy malts and then a mild tropical fruit sensation off in the background. The taste has a mix of spicy hops, grapefruit hops and some roasty malts too. This is just a good tasty hop forward amber that I’m really enjoying.

On tap at Barrio Brewing. Pours a clear light orange with a thin white head. Aroma of citrus and piney hops, tropical fruits, sweet caramel malt. Flavor is mostly sweet citrus hops, well blended with a caramel malt base. Very easy drinking. Great hoppy pale! 8/4/8/4/14 (3.8/5)

on tap-pours a disappearing off white head and gold/amber color. Aroma is pine, some light/medium malt. Taste is pine/resin/pineapple hops with some bite, secondary light/medium malt-caramel. Ok carbonation.

on tap as part of the sampler pours deep gold with a medium white head. Aroma is grassy all around, hops, malts, very earthen and clean. Flavor is much the same with hay and grass ending with a nice clean grassy hop finish. I feel like this was super fresh as the hops in the finish were very nice.
