Our India Pale Ale packs typical IPA balls but strikes a better balance between dryness and drinkability. It’s every bit as rich but a little less bitter than other American interpretations of the breed, and here’s why. We are smarter, better looking brew masters. It also doesn’t hurt that we use 2 row barley with no goofy processing. And then we employ a 2 week dry hop process before we put it in the can, with love for you, our beer loving friends. There is no fish or fish flavor in Snapperhead. We chose this cartoon figure to represent the brand in a somewhat random marketing process we call ’non-sensical ideation’.

jason (1737) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 29, 2007
Can. This couldn’t be disappointing because I wasn’t expecting anything special or even decent. Pours a cloudy amber body with thin head. Aroma is heavy with malt, light vegatable notes. Big malty body. Lot’s of off flavors and unenjoyable bitterness.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - AUG 9, 2007
Vacation 8-07. 12 oz can. Golden color, fruity citrus hop nose and mild fruit in the taste. Not bad on a very hot day in NC.

omhper (21764) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 7, 2007
Canned at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Dark amber, minimal head. Evident apricot aroma. Medium sweet with rather clean mouthfeel and evident crystal malt character. The hops are freshening, which helps when the body is a bit syrupy and boozy. Finishes with medium bitterness. Decent, if a bit edgy.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - JUL 25, 2007
Poured a hazy golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is sweet, grainy, lightly hopped and papery. The flavor is of grapefruit and malt. The flavor is short with a medium length bitter finish. Light to medium bodied.

Appearance :Golden, bitter ale with minimal fizz on top.3-
Aroma:Sweet toasted malt with light hint of hops. To faint for good classic IPA.
Flavour/Palate: Light bodied, noticeable carbonation. Sweet malt with weak hop profile. IPA? Nah.

jercraigs (8794) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 15, 2007
Can at Coles IPA Festival. Orange amber body, with a small fluffy white head. Muted aroma, moderate notes of hops. Creamy caramel flavour with light bitterness and not a lot going on. Average palate. Disappointing.

frankenkitty (1982) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - JUL 15, 2007
Pours a frost-hazed golden/amber under a short, white & creamy head. Aroma rather like Juicy Fruit gum, with some orange, red grapefruit, melon and peach as well as some pink bubblegum notes. Flavor is kind of thin, both fruity and bitter like the unripened versions of the fruits mentioned above with light pepper notes. I don’t enjoy the lingering afertaste. Kind of a let-down after a promising nose.

Arayaga2 (1930) - portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 28, 2007
Sweet malty nose with very subdued citrus and mango aroma. Nice chestnut color with a quick fading white head. Lightly sweet, and crackery... more like an apa than an ipa, but still nice. Finish is a bit grassy tho. $1.85/12oz
