COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

On tap at 2014 GTMW, pours a dark copper amber with an off white head, the aroma has some pine and hops on the nose with more of a malty touch to it, the flavor has a nice hop front end with a pretty balanced caramel and malt finish, pretty easy drinking and not that bad at all.

Deep copper pour from a 12oz bottle with a nice white head. Citrus nose with a slight malt character. Easy drinking, nice hop profile, just a little bitterness in the finish. Solid.

12 oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Pours a crystal clear light copper with a small white head that dissipates quickly. Smells of floral, piney and caramel. Tastes of caramel, pine, floral, and light citrus. Light bodied with a drying finish and a moderately high bitterness. Nice and refreshing, a good beer.

Amber/light amber. Short head. Clear. Nice hop aroma kinda fruity and earthy.Want to say a mix with fuggles possibly, haven’t smelled this armoa in a while, planty herbal with a bit of mint. Slightly vegetably,slight spice pepper. Want to say dank and resiony but has a bit of vegetable/plantyness. Overall better experience with aroma in this than many good pale ales. Same in taste with hop flavor and some acidity orange and carbonic sting, good caramel and a mild/medium malty toast buiscuit , just about the right about of sweetness maybe a bit more. Not real dry, think I would like this more if it were a bit drier and a tad less sweet. But its a pretty nice fullish bodied tastey rounded pale ale. Really nice drinking though altogether.

Clear copper to peach gold pour with a 1 finger creamy to soapy off white-yellowish head. Aroma is perfumey and slightly soapy floral hops, sweet citrus, a hint of dank pine, sweet caramel and an earthy pine note just peeking in. Flavor is full of toast and biscuit up front, some caramel, light nutty toffee, sweet citrus, candied floral and earthy herbal hops, with a piney finish that has a peanut butter-like nutty note coming in just for a bit at the end, weird. Light body with a slightly creamy entry but overall fairly dry feel and light to medium carbonation. Good stuff overall.

In 12oz bottle. Piney citrus aroma. Flavors of orange, toffee, maybe a bit of honey. Beautiful.

As malty an IPA as you’ll find. This beer is defined by its bready backing more than its hop finish, which is understated.
