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’.

Arayaga2 (1775) - 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

WeeHeavySD (3360) - San Diego (Hillcrest), Oregon, USA - JUN 19, 2007
Can via trade with somebody as a bonus thank you whomever you are. Pours fizzy light amber with a 1 finger puffy head. Aroma is pretty dead. The taste is slightly hoppy and basically dead. Overall a drain pour.

mds (2205) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 26, 2007
Can. Pours a translucent light orange body with a large frothy white head. The aroma consists of toasted dark bread, soapy hops, and sweet fruits. The first bit that touches your lips actually tastes decent but then it quickly falls apart with buttery hops and strange vegetable (asparagus) notes.

bgburdman9 (857) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - MAY 20, 2007
Wow this was a great beer from sliffy. Aroma of a little buttery and some real sweet citrus. Flavor was sweet and sticky, left a film on my teeth. Pretty bad aftertaste also.

Can shared by sliffy. Orange pour with no head. Aroma of malt, grassy hops and some caramel. Falvor of caramel malt and earthy hops. Medium body sweet and somewhat syrupy...sweet/light bitter finish.

Can thanks to dickinsonbeer?: This had to be the single coolest beer I got in the mystery swap, had the perfect blend of "this looks interesting" to the abject horror of what could be contained in a little yellow can that said butternuts on it. Needless to say I couldn’t wait to crack it open with some friends. Pours a clear yellow/gold in color with a white head. Aroma, grassy hops dominate, while there are some buttery malty notes. Though the buttery part probably comes from the name more so than what I actually smelled. Flavor, pale malts, some faint citrus, a bit nutty, with some grassy hops, and a bready finish. Not the best, not the worst, but it did seem a bit stale. I’de drink it again for the novelty.

BREWMUSKCLES (2224) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 16, 2007
good looking beer with a malt base and hop character that is exactly that of an old broom. why we brew dogs enjoy that i dunno? try it once enjoy the flavor and then leave it alone... for eternity.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 14, 2007
Can with nice graphics. Too bad the beer doesn’t even come close to living up to its potential. Watery golden boring flavorless coors light clone. Wish I could say something more interesting about this beer but it doesn’t taste like an IPA and doesn’t even live up to an average pale lager.

5000 (6239) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Can: Dull golden, somewhat dirty, thin dishwater head, dies quickly, real quick actually, barely any lacing.   Muted malt nose, some vegetable... well actually moreso that than anything hop related.   Blech, vegetal and cabbage like on the tongue.   Very slight sweetness to it.   IPA? What IPA?   Not particularly pleasing.   Seems like it could be broken... but at least I know its not from light.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Overcooked vegetables on the finish.   Actually, looking at the ratings I think its probably what was intended.   Thanks for the new can Paul!
