Like busy bees working hard to please their queen, this copper ale will take your palate for a spin. This brew is loaded up with our favorite American hops and complimented by a touch of raw honey procured from a local hive. Using a small amount of specialty malt and nearly every method of hopping possible, we present to you this delicious seasonal.

Gold and cloudy appearance. Aroma sweet and hoppy. Hops hit immediately, sweet but not overly so. Lots of citrus taste. Tap.

on tap at Dog & Bull - a good, hoppy IPA. Nice hop aroma and flavor. Would have liked if it was a little sweeter but overall, a nice IPA.

Very nice indeed. Malty sweet aroma with bread and grass, just a hint of sweetness. The flavor has the sweetness up front followed by a good deal of hop bitterness. Dry and tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a gold color with good lacing. Tastes sweet and of honey. More hoppy and floral than I expected, which was a welcome surprise. I didn’t love it, but would definitely drink this again.

On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: Very slightly hazy amber body with a tall light tan head with excellent retention.
Aroma: The aroma leans a touch sweet with honey which is backed by oranges hinting at a mild bitterness.
Taste: Light honey sweetness is complemented by citrusy hops of oranges and grapefruit. Bitterness is mild.
Palate: Creamy body with light to moderate carbonation.
Overall: This is a good IPA, but nothing I would consider seeking out. I wonder how this compares to Hopslam.
