Copper Kettle Summer Ale
An okay wheat ale. Tried at the brewery for the first time back in 2011. Don't get much of the ginger in this beer, but it has a pleasant sweetness to it. Mostly grassy hops, a little light citrus.

Copper Kettle Copper Hopper IPA
Draft. Pours a medium, well retained, ivory head, with layered lacing, over a hazy amber (SRM 8) body......nose is pine, resin, slight fruit tones, with dankness, mild malts with slight bread tones, balance to the hops......taste is light malts with toast, bread tones, pine, resin, slight dank tones, finishing with moderate bitterness, with lingering dank tones, balance to the hops......mouth feel, medium light body, mild alcohol, high carbonation. While this is a relatively typical IPA, the lingering dank, slightly foul bitterness is quite unpleasant. The hop back bone needs a re-work, but then the last ratings were 3 years ago, so a question would be too much age. BJCP 8/3/10/4/6

Copper Kettle Well Bred
22 oz bottle shared with Tmoney99 and the crew at Nine Giant. Pours a slightly hazy deep amber color with a small beige head. The aroma has a certain character that is not my favorite. The flavor has more of what I expected, has caramel, vanilla, bourbon, a candied orange/fruit character, hints of wood, good flavor, the nose improves with warming but the first sniff was hard to forget.

The flavor starts with the chocolate backbone. Coffee is more noticeable in the aroma as opposed what I am tasting. The palate/ mouthfeel is medium plus. A good amount of bourbon, to include the bourbon heat.

Copper Kettle Rum Eggnog Stout
Black pour with a thin light beige ring of foam around the edge of the glass. Rich complex nose of sweet creamy sugars, nutmeg, Eggnog sugars, and a kiss of cocoa. Smooth and mellow flavor that’s a little roasty and cocoa-y with gentle nutmeg and creamy sweetness, a kiss of rum, and a earthy clove touch. Weird but kinda tasty in its own right.
