There is a stark contrast difference between the initial flavour and the aftertaste of this fairly hoppy beer. Like the WinterHook, Iím not partial to itís flavour, but it is similar to the Pyramid SnowCap in that there are a lot of hard to place off-flavors roaming around in the glass, almost as if youíre not sure what is about to assault your tastebuds next. Definately a tasting experience, and I will try it again!

2003 or 2004 bottle. Lovely medium-orange-amber color, with a touch of sediment floating around. Decent white head. Appearance looks great so far. Aroma is citrus hops, grapefruit, orange marmalade and some more fruity spiciness compliments of the hops. Flavor is moderately bitter, but well-balanced (relative to the style of course). Which by the way, how is this an amber ale??? Anyways, itís got a good dry toffee/caramel like malt that dosent get too sweet but holds the bitterness in check. The finish had plenty of orange zest, grapefruit and a hint of bitter pininess. Body is medium, lively carbonation, hint of thinning and very drinkable. Loved it, actually, but then, I havent had a West Coast hopped beer for a while, so maybe I was just missing them. Thanks so much for the beer, Andre.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2006 Iíve had this as both the Chinook Copper and the new Redhook Copper Hook. Seems to have a little better aroma and flavor as the Redhook. Pours a nice bright amber color. Aromas of malts,something metallic, and a touch of grapefruit. Flavor is a tad citrus mixed well with the malt, nice finish, but a little watery. Redhook CopperHook: Pours a nice bright amber color. Aromas of grapefruit/pine with some roasty scents. Flavor is citrus mixed well with the sweet malt, nice hoppy taste on this one.

Draught at Hole in the Wall, Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak Phoenix. I was pretty excited to come across a Redhook brew I hadnít tried, or heard of, before. And judging from the low number of ratings, either it is new or its distribution is limited. Some sweetness in the nose. Copper in color (imagine that), no head. Slightly hazy body. Nice flavor; well balanced. Some bitterness. I enjoyed it and wouldnít mind having it again. It would appear that thereís a macro bias underrating this brew.

Bottle. Gold-orange with a bit of haze, decent sized white head. Aroma is bready fruit with some hops. Moderate malt presence, nicely balanced with some citrus hops, good mouthfeel though light, finishes with some spicy bitterness. Not remarkable but I wouldnít turn one down.

Aroma: Vaguely malty with some citrusy hopy notes Appearance: Hazy Reddish copper with a thin white head Flavor: NIcely balanced with malt forward with very slight what I think is belgian-esque sournes Palate: Light bodied with a short finish Overall: The bottled version did not leave me thrilled but had enough intrigue to make me want to try one on tap

A fair little pale ale. Spicy, somewhat metallic nose of possibly noble hops. Amber, rather than copper color, with medium ordinary head. Flavor initially softly presented, with a medium body and light carbonation. Malts are understated but lightly bready and offer just enough sweetness. Hop flavors are minimal, slightly tingly and spicy, perhaps citric. Thereís an astringent, possibly carbonic bite right before the semi-dry balanced finish. A good pale ale, all things considered.

I enjoyed this ale on tap. It held a refreshing crisp citrus aroma. Ample wieght and head to the beer. It maintained a great balance between hops and maltiness. Not too hoppy but not too citrusy. It was delicious till the end.

Dark yellow, hazy. No carbonation. Plain aroma, sourdough bread, pepper, lemon. First thing that strikes me is the yeast flavor- cinnamon, pepper, with a nice hoppy finish (pine). Everything about this beer is subtle and unexpected. Rich flavors, nice balance, overall enjoyable.

Crisp refreshing and clean amber ale that really does go well with some crab legs fresh off the ocean.
