COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Incredibly well balanced, Snoqualmie Falls Copperhead Pale Ale first grabs your attention the great aroma of Washington Centennial hops, followed quickly by toasty malt flavor from generous amounts of imported light crystal malt, finally giving way to a clean, bright hop flavor. Deep gold in color, medium bodied and exceptionally clean, this American style pale ale is destined become a new Northwest favorite!

Floral + citrus hops aroma, sweet fruits (apple, pear, melon), mild malt backing. Hint of yeast. Flavor of fruits (apple, lemon) up front. Mild floral hops mid. Finishs with some lightly toasted biscuit and carmelly malts. Palate is mellow and agreeable, good astringent texture. Overall a darn tootin pale ale. Only down side is a hint of the malt flavor (crystal malts perhaps) I associate with macro-lagers.

Skyview (5150) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUN 24, 2008
On draught at the brewery taproom in Snoqualmie, WA. Pours a semi-clear golden pale brew with a thick and lasting off-white head that has some excellent lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, some apple character and flowery hops. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonated with flavors of caramel malt, some sharp citrus zest and a touch of white pepper. Finish is semi-dry, almost like the PGA but with a little hop bitterness during the finish which disappears quickly.

nice amber yellow pour with medium head - citrusy hoppy smell followed by sweet malt/citrus hop finish with a wheaty aftertaste

bhensonb (10702) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 25, 2008
Nice medium citrus aroma. LIght amber color with a creamy beige head. Medium body with creamy carbonation. A fair balance of light citrus and lightly roasted malt. Not all that bitter, but the finish is bitter. Makes me think more ESB than APA, but the folks over the pond wouldn’t agree. Whatever it is, it is a really tasty ale. Smooth.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - APR 20, 2008
Big hopped up pale, tastes like a much bigger beer then it is. The hops give a big citrus floral nose and flavor. The malts step up to the challenge and it all works out really well. Really nice overhopped pale.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - APR 12, 2008
On tap at the brewpub. Pours clear gold with a thick and creamy white head. Our waitress says this beer is like the Copperhead, but it looks nothing like it: Aside from the obvious ’nitro head’ difference it’s golden rather than coppery, it’s crystal clear rather than being cloudy. The taste is similar to the Copperhead, with some citrus notes over caramel, but cleaner, not so malty, and the hops are backed off a bit.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy light copper with a lacy white head. Citrus and caramel nose. The taste is lightly sweet and has more citrus, nuts, caramel, pine. This seems to be an APA that sort of wants to be an IPA, but I’m OK with that.

SuzyGreenberg (1603) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 16, 2008
22 oz. bottle - pours clear gold with big white head; second pint had a slight suspended haze; crisp hops are the only noticeable aroma that are generally mild; drinks with a clean and crisp hopness; slightly bitter finish and an overall decent pale ale

Crafty07 (404) - Florence, Kentucky, USA - DEC 12, 2007
"Copperhead" pours milky orange-yellow with a minimal dissapating head with a slight citrus aroma from a 22 oz bottle. I agree with the commerical description, the body is quite clean. A bit more of bitter finish than I enjoy but I’m sure the hop heads love it. Good beer from funny named place.

Suttree (5013) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 25, 2007
Yellowish orange, thin white head - I was fully expecting something called "copperhead" to be, y’know, .copper. Mellow toasty piney aroma. Very peppery at first, with some rye notes. Finishes with big hop flavors.

AmEricanbrew (5616) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - OCT 19, 2007
22 oz. bottle pours a dark amber color with a slight head that fades quickly. Smell is grainy, yeasty with floral hops. Medium bodied with a clean, crisp mouthfeel. Nicely balanced taste is malty, grainy with a fresh hop flavor . Finishes with a fresh, perfumy hop taste on the palate. Nov 2003
