Copper Cone (Epic Brewing, Salt Lake City, UT)

Copper Cone is a hazy gold to copper American Pale Ale with a dirty white head. Nice grapefruit, lemon, spice and caramel. A good nose that makes me anticipate liking this beer more than some of the earlier Epic beers I've had. And...nope. Taste is adequate, but doesn't live up to the nose. Slightly thin body, good malty base but overwhelms the hops, and the bitterness and body are muddled. Some of the fruit carries into the body, but seems set a part from the rest. Perfectly good beer, but not going to go out of my way for it again.

Serving type: bottle
