COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Zipline Brewing Co.’s Copper Alt. is a unique ale/lager hybrid. This bronzed brew is unfiltered, and designed to be extremely drinkable, with subtle nuances of chocolate and hazelnut. A late gift of Sterling hops in this brew leaves a little hoppiness for your palate to ponder before the next sip.

12 oz bottled on May 29, 2015 from that smoke shop in McCook. Pours a slightly hazy dark copper with a ring of a white head. While this is not a hop-forward beer, this is hoppier than I anticipated. A little citrus and cedar come out in the aroma to balance the nutty and subtly chocolatey malts. The palate is medium and exhibits good attenuation. I’m not crazy about alts, but this is pretty nice. Woody hops peek out over a good malt base of toffee, chocolate, brown sugar and nuts. Esters are low. This is a very well put-together beer. I’ve only had two beers from Zip Line and they’ve both shown evidence these guys know what they’re doing. Thanks for making an alt that I actually like.
