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.

This beer is an instant classic, bringing back the North German Altbier style to modern brewing. This pseudo lager pours crystal clear mahogany in hue with an off white head. The taste is very unique combo of slight hazelnut and chocolate with a crisp but light floral hop tone. Very easy drinking brew.

Wasn't expecting much out of this but enjoyable kind of. Copper pour from bottle from sloth. Sweet Carmel aroma. Taste is dry sweet wood earthy - a lot of flavor for low ABV. Not bad

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2014 Copper Alt may very well be the smoothest and most balanced beer in Zipline’s inventory. Though more of a dark amber than a copper shade, this alt is very attractive and has a modest off-white head. The aroma is reserved but reveals sweet cereal grains and toasted barley. Taste manages to encompass the most pleasant aspects of both lagers and ales. Nut, caramel, and subtle chocolate make for an extremely drinkable combination of flavors. Though malty and mild, there are just enough hops to give this beer a clean finish. Copper Alt may not be the most complex brew but it certainly does satisfy.
