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!

jake65 (2725) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 16, 2007
Bottle: Clear light orange color with a modest white head. Aroma of citrus and floral hops. Taste is more citrus and fruity with some florals, hints of caramel, and sweet malt. Nice, crisp yet lingering finish. Thanks to Jeremy for sharing.

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 11, 2007
Draught pint at Redbones on 12/5/2006
Small white head tops a rusty, copper colored beer. Medium-high to high clarity. Retention is average, lacing is light.
Citric and sweaty hops combine in the nose, with toasty, lightly sourish malt notes trailing close behind. Fully passing notes of vanilla sugars and light honey are glimpsed. Candied oranges and lemon zest seem to add too much sour/bitter astringent like character. Medium strength of aroma, no alcohol/flaws noted.
Toasty malt wastes no time in asserting itself, much to the chagrin of the palate which has to cope with lacking amounts of sweet malts and further bittering hops (citrus mainly). Sweaty/hay-like flavors linger on the finish and there is a hard character from the crystal malts. By the end, itís mostly IBUs and toastiness, fatiguing/boring the palate. Medium to medium-light body, but with a high amount of water/malt ratio. Moderate carbonation, no alcohol. Clean.

after4ever (6251) - Brier, Washington, USA - NOV 6, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2008 Bomber. Pours clear golden amber with a sudsy white head that doesnít hang around. Fairly neutral nose; really not much there other than a whiff of sweet grain. Lightish body, medium carb. Not much flavor on the attack or the mid palate, but thereís a suggestion of caramely malt and some light c-hop there. The c-hop picks up on the finish, and hangs around for a little while. Well-made, balanced, solid, refreshing. Nice to know this beer exists, even if itís not one of the all-time greats. Iíll always be happy to order it with food, and will have it again as a session beer. Nicely done, Rande.
Had this on draft at the brewery also, as the Nitro Pale. Flatter, weaker, waterier, less flavorful. Works out to be a 2.8 on nitro, but Iím not putting those numbers against the total score because...nitro.

JorisPPattyn (8031) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 21, 2006
Draught Golden-orange; head gone. Still very hoppy, with a good sweetsmelling malt backing. Sweet-ish beer with soem hoppy uplifting. Seems like Belgian white candi sugar is used, or/and a very slight amount of maize. Bit toasted. Creamy texture, velvety, even when the body is rather light. Pleasing drinking beer.

Hazy amber colour. Fruity aroma with some caramel. Light, balanced character. Some berryish esters and light hops. Decent.
