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’.

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.

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 (1810) - 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

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 (2238) - 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.

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 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.
