COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This ale contains no actual copper but we’re pretty literal... It looked coppery, so we lamely called it a copper ale. Lots’a nice caramel malt though... Originally 5.9% alcohol by volume, currently

12oz bottle. 05.25.04 Dark amber, med head, no lace...ok, some lace. Odd, toasted wheat bread aroma. Some metal? Must be the copper. Soft and sweet like tea with sugar. Nice, quick finish. Tingles briefly with hops at the end.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2004
Bottle. A bit too tinny for me. The hops are there and all that, piney grapefruity flavour, rusty bitterness, not round enough, edgey in flavour.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - MAY 26, 2004
Clear amber/copper coloured body with a thin off-white head. Aroma of hops, pit fruit, malt and some subtle spices. Medium to Full-bodied; Spicey taste up front with some hops noticeable and a good malt backbone. Aftertaste shows some malt and alcohol, but little else. Overall, a good beer-definately one to try! I bought this twelve ounce bottle at Norm’s in Vienna, Virginia and sampled it on 26-May-2004.

Hazy amber,dense beige head.Light malt nose. Malt flavor has an unpleasant bitterness not from hops.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 15, 2004
Copper, thick white head. Cotton candy, malty, light citrus and hawaiian sweet bread in the nose. Flavor is similar, but add a few hints of candied apple, malt, spice, and light citric hops to round it out. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, tangy malty finish. It grew on me about half way through the pint. Could use more in the smell department, but still worth a try. And BTW...7.7%...couldn’t tell..

Aubrey (3430) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAY 6, 2004
Nice amber-copper hue below a heady head with nice and frothy lace. Smelled fresh and malty. Mouthfeel was nice; creamy and thick, yet lightish and easy to drink. Malts were rich and flavorful. Hops were there, but it wasn’t very bitter. Big notes of citrus and pine. It was actually kind of tart and somewhat sour. I’d give credit to the big grapefruit flavors for hiding the alcohol. Good beer.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 6, 2004
Appearance: bright, coppery hue, with a thick, full, creamy head. Aroma: hoppy, strong, piney, hints of citric fruits, exhilirating when inhaled deeply, fresh, alert, and very lively. We sip, and...ah, mmmm, tasty, bright, mmmm, like a classic red ale, but super-charged in the hop department, and the alcohol accelerated, and easily apparent on the palate before too long. Rich and full of malt, sweet, spicy, strong, with only a touch of hops. Tasty, zingy, a big blast of everything...I can see how this could become addictive! A very interesting experiment from Lagunitas...I’ve never heard of anyone tweaking with the Irish Red style, certainly not to such an extreme.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAY 3, 2004
Clear copper with nice head. Aroma was floral hoppy and dough. Taste was caramel and light burnt oranges. Very nicely balanced 7.7%.

Kinz (3251) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - APR 22, 2004
Coppery orange, decent head. Aroma is of slightly earthy and grapefruit hops, with a bit of malt sweetness. Flavor matches. Unbelievably well balanced, the hops and malts just meld with each other. Nothing over the top, but not weak either. Very well done.
