COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Copper-colored ale is medium-bodied and highly hopped. Its flavor is delightfully complex: tangy fruit at the start, with an assertive hop crispness and a long malty palate that one well-known beer writer has compared to the flavor of freshly-baked bread.

Purchased from the Cincinnati Walgreen’s at the corner pof Boudinot & Harrison. Alright this copper-hued IPA has a pleasant citrus-type aroma and a very balanced malty taste. I like it.

The aroma is dominated by grass and floral smells with a bit of nutty smell mixed in. It is amber with haze present. The carbonation is lively and the head is very fluffy. There is a grassy taste with floral bites that is fairly good. There is a bitter bite on the palate as well.

kramer (4688) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear dark copper body under a large frothy off-white head. The nose is light floral hops over a slightly sweet caramel and crystal malt base. The flavor shows a light bitterness level with some floral and citrusy notes. Sweet caramel and toasty maltiness. Fairly short finish with minimal bitterness. Lighter bodied with a bit of cling to the finish. OK, but I wish it were a bit brighter with the hops.

Not a fan of this one at all, reminded me of a blend of mellow yellow and sprite without the sweetness.

Nice color, light brown and clear. Nice aroma, what you would expect, nothing really unique there. Very fizzy, but kind of a flat taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Salamiwami (50) - Massachusetts, USA - FEB 6, 2014
Nice amber color with a thick frothy head. Fruity aroma with lots of hop flavor. Quite bitter for a pale ale. Solid drinkability and a nice overall beer.

akoeninger (342) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 20, 2014
Amber golden with good amount of head. Aroma of orange and citrus hops and caramel with some earth. Taste is citrus and malt. This is fairly well balanced with bitterness bordering ipa territory. A good pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours an orange color with medium head and average lacing. Hop aroma and balanced taste with caramel and floral notes. Drinkable and decent. ----Hophaze out

VT (1298) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 7, 2014
355 ml bottle. Pours a hazy orange-amber with a thick, resilient white head. Aroma is caramel, hops. Flavor is toasted grains, caramel, and some fruits. Finish is a nice bit of fruity hops, mainly grapefruit and lemon. Rather light flavored. Lingering fruity hops. Light body, somewhat watery mouthfeel, average carbonation. Good English pale ale.

Pours a dark rust orange with light white head. Has a sweet malt, hop, and caramel aroma. Taste is initially strong with malt, then weak with some hops, caramel, nuts, and grass, but finishes with a strong malt aftertaste.
