Review - Redhook Brewery's Copperhook
"Celebrate the arrival of Spring by grabbing a crisp pint of Copperhook Ale and saying “Here’s to the change in seasons.” With its brilliant copper color, light maltiness, pleasant hop aroma, and distinctive citrus flavor, Copperhook is a perfect companion to warmer temps and longer nights. Spring is in the air and it’s time to enjoy a cold, crisp pint! 4.51% ABV 20 IBU 174 Cal & 13g carb /12oz"
Pours a medium hazy amber color with clear, crisp medium yellow color with a pretty decent fizzy off-white head with good retention. Fairly active body. Thin, wispy lacing leaves a thin ring on the glass. Aroma gives off a subtle green apple scent providing some nice hoppy crispness, with very little malt backbone to speak of. Initial taste is light sweet that doesn't really change very much through the finish, and just eventually fades away. Light bodied, the dry mouthfeel, combined with a coating left on the mouth, leaves us less than refreshed.
