While walking through a field and enjoying a lazy summer evening, our head brewer Steve stepped on a stick that popped up and nicked his leg. Or so he thought, until he found two puncture marks on his ankle. The copperhead bite may have caused a trip to the hospital for Steve, but it also provided just the inspiration he and Chuck needed to name their new beer – yep, one lowly snake in the grass is the namesake of one of our most popular beers.

The tap poured a sparkling clear medium amber beverage with a small frothy white head that was mostly diminishing but left good lacing on the glass. The aroma had a light malt character with a moderate flowery hop aroma. It had a medium to full body with soft carbonation and a slightly dry texture. The flavor started off with a light sweetness and bitterness at the same time. The sweetness gave way to the bitterness as the flavor matured on the palate. The finish was long and moderately bitter with a light alcohol feel.

Appetizing light copper with a cap of fine off -white head. Wonderful soft orange and candy hop aromas; gently fruity yeast and a light toastiness. Soft and clean on the palate. Nice citrus/fruit hop flavor, substantial but not overbearing bitterness. Lovely toasty maltiness that lingers into the finish. Just enough body to carry the flavor. Overall, it’s not really big enough to be an IPA. But it’s such a delicious pale ale, I have a hard time minding that much. I’m regretting not bringing back a growler full.

Cask conditioned at the brewpub. Probably on of the best cask ales I’ve even had. The problem is, this in not an IPA. No way. A perfect pale ale. Hop aroma and flavor are very enjoyable. Quaffable. I don’t understand the IPA designation.

I wouldn’t have guessed this was their IPA. Hoppiness was in the range of your typical APA, with a weird flavor in the background I couldn’t place, but detracted from the beer considerably.

Fruity, floral, bitter hop aroma. Copper/amber in color with nice lace. Bitter mouthfeel; peppery. Something is not quite right, but it is still a good IPA.

(Tap at brewery) Pours a clear copper body with a small white head. Aroma of citrus and caramel. Flavor of hops and some caramel. Somewhat bitter finish.

Fresh but overwhelming aroma of Cascades. Clear copper penny color. Whew! Grapefruit assault! Way too citrusy. Sorry, can’t wrap my tongue around this one. One-dimensional.

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2017 At the brewpub ... Pure copper color. Metallic hoppy aroma and flavors. Nice malt underpinings. This is a nice pale ale.
