In this beer blog, we are going to dig into another beer, which is Cooperhook from Redhook Brewery. If you read my earlier blog on their Longhammer India Pale Ale, you are pretty much up to speed on the history of this brewery. Let us get into this beer.
Redhook Brewery Copper Hook has a nice copper color with no head for their spring seasonal. It has a nice malty smell in the beer. It has a nice sweet malty taste. It remains me of s’mores growing up around a camp fire in Michigan camp grounds. This beer is perfect for spring because of how drinkablity.
Here is a description from their website (www.redhook.com):
Who needs precious metals, when you’ve got Copper?! This copper-colored ale is a real crowd-pleaser. Copperhook strikes the perfect balance of smooth, rich, malty flavor you’d expect from a craft brew with a lighter body and hop profile that makes it a perfect “session” beer when you’ve got a long day ahead of knocking back a few with your buddies.

In closing, just what I said in other blogs on this brewery’s beers, I truly love the drinkable aspect of their beers. It has been a long time since I had a Redhook Copperhook. I will say this beer did not disappoint me, however, Untappd is calling this beer a Red Ale or Amber Ale. I really do not pay that description of this beer. If this is the case, I believe I just found myself my first Red or Amber Ale that I really enjoy drinking. They call it on their website a Copper Ale. I do not believe there is a beer style call that but it does decide it. I am disappointed that I cannot find this beer in six-pack form just like their pilsner. I will be picking up more their sampler packs. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
