COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Copper Creek IPA is brewed with a nod to the original English style, highly hopped and higher in alcohol. Copper Creek is brewed with four malts, bittered with New Zealand Pacific Jade hops, and finished with American Cascade. This complex pale ale is then dry-hopped with Pacific Jade and Kent Golding. Entering with both complex malt and hop aromas, Copper Creek’s distinct malt flavor is of toasted malt, caramel and biscuits. With a slight citrus finish, sweet fruitiness and spiciness, and a dry lingering hop bitterness, Copper Creek is a regional favorite.

[Bottle] Pours a light amber color. Floral hops and mild grass in the aroma. The taste is more malt forward than expected. Caramel and biscuit notes. Lingering finish is only mildly bitter. Tastes like a very similar malt profile to their red ale, but with extra hops added. Tasting notes from 2/2014.

Tap - fair size foamy head, medium copper color, earthy piney hop aroma and flavor, mild malt backbone - good overall but only fair in the IPA world ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark, bold bright orange in color with a bright white head, this has a nice, fruity hop nose. It’s a little soapy in flavor, pretty bitter but still cozy down the gullet. It’s like a well-hopped pale ale in body and flavor. Somehow it’s interesting for the style, as there’s something very light about it - yet, it still maintains some thin but robust hops.

Side note, maybe a bad bottle. This is an ipa ? So much malt. Got faint notes of hops but mostly sweet caramel malt. Some tropical fruit present. Really strange ipa.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4988) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2013
From the September 2013 3R6P tasting +++ Sampled from a 750 ml brown bottle this beer poured an orange-amber color with a large creamy orange-tan head that faded quickly but left great lacing. The aroma was sweet and fruity pineapple, papaya and tropical fruits. The flavor was bitter and somewhat sweet with an odd stale like presence and a moderate burst of tropical fruits that faded quickly to be replaced by a dry, dusty cardboard presence. Medium length tangy tropical fruit and cardboard finish. Moderately full bodied.

Golden pour with small head and just a little lacing. Weak aroma for a pale ale - just a little hops and lots of caramel malt. Flavor-wise, this reminds me quite a bit of Deschutes’ pale ales - almost a banana bread like quality to go with the bitterness. I would never guess this as an IPA - maybe an APA or even ESB (the hops are there, just not in-your-face). The brewer does say it’s based on the original English style, so that makes a little more sense. If you come into this with expectations of bold, hoppy, West Coast IPAs, you’ll be disappointed, but it’s a decent, light, easy drink, at any rate.

jgentgesdo (673) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Pours copper, clear, with a medium white head that laces perfectly. Nose is powerful floral hops, pepper, allspice. Quite bitter with honeyed malt backbone. There is some peatiness? Very good. Ends a little chalky.

On draft at the Gastropub. It poured a dark copper body with a nice off-white head. The aroma was of sweet caramel malt with floral and piney hops. The taste was fairly sweet and thick malt backed up by a smooth bitterness from the hops. It wasn’t a hop monster, but it was also not a wimp. Nicely done.
