COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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’.

12 oz can from a variety 12 pack. WORST IPA EVER!! I think that about sums this one up.

argo0 (12862) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 10, 2007
(12oz can) Small off-white head atop cloudy amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, caramel/butterscotch, some pine. Taste is medium sweet, a hideous combination of butterscotch and pine/grapefruit, mixed with some lemon floor wax. Medium body, somewhat dusky, syrupy.

Beerdedone (3170) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2007
Can sampled. Pours copper with a small white head. Aroma of caramel malt, light citrus, and earthy hops. Flavor is medium sweet with caramel malts, sweet fruit, and a hint of grapefruit with a nice dry finish.

RblWthACoz (964) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - SEP 28, 2007
Pours a clouded amber orange with virtually no head. Nose is of tangy hops. Flavor is hoppy, sure. But it has a strong, almost watery flavor edge to it. Feel has a lot of bubble on the tongue. Like I said previously though, there is a watery element to it that effects the overall experience. Decent, but a midguided shot at this whole canning of craft beer thing.

cbkschubert (2901) - BFE, Arizona, USA - SEP 21, 2007
12 oz. can via trade with jasonmech77 - Pours a hazy amber color with a half finger thick off white head. Aroma is light malt and esters. Flavor is lightly sweetened caramel malt and esters. Medium body. A somewhat subdued IPA. Worth a try. Thanks Jason.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - SEP 7, 2007
From a can pours a lightly hazy golden orange amber with a medium/bubbly/creamy off white head that left some lacing. Aroma was lots of caramel malt, some citrus, hops kind of buried beneath the malt sweet nose. Flavor of caramel malt, cardboard, some butter, some hop flavor and bitterness.

jason (1821) - 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.
