Cloudy amber pour with a white frothy head. Aroma of citrus, caramel, and toasted malt. Citrus flavor with caramel and biscuit. Very little hop bite at the end. Very malty IPA.

12oz can, shared by Caterwaul. Hazy orange color. Thin white head. Good spread of lace. Smooth, lightly crisp lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Good orange citrus flavor. Zesty, moderate bitter, moderate sweet taste too, though. More of a biscuity malt than caramel malt profile, does some good for me. Better than expected, especially for a can thatís likely 4-6+ months old.

12 Fl. Oz. Can. Poured clear, golden decent amount of white head that leaves nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is malty, not really IPA like (in my opinion), some yeast and minimal hops. Nice carbonation, light bodied. Taste of malts (sweet) some hops in there too (but not a lot). A very mild version of an IPA perhaps? Anyhow drinkable, OK beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can. Poured pale with a frothy off-white head that left some lasting and good lacing. Subdue aromas. The flavor found floral hops, bready, and light caramel. Light body.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can. Has a bit of a good initial spice hop taste, but too much malt kicks in and has a bit of a negative aftertaste

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz can The IPA poured a hazy gold with a small head that dissapated to an off white collar. There was lacing down the glass. The aroma was hard to detect maybe some malt and citrus. Their brewing process somehow takes the bitterness and fun out of the IPA. If you want mild this is your IPA. The body was medium with average carbonation. The finish was uninspiring yet there was some bitterness in the upper mouth.

It's a session able ipa with moderate malt balance. Very serviceable, and the price is good. People hate, but if you're looking for a beer to drink and socialize, couldn't go wrong with it.

Wow. Iím really surprised at all of these negative ratings. The style says IPA, but itís a malt-base IPA. Gorgeous milk tea taste. Pours slightly cloudy dark gold with white head. Aroma- milk tea and light chocolate. Defies IPA- definite milk tea light, heavy, then light with floral and earthy hops. Finish is chocolate milk (or bubble tea) with long but subtle floral and earth. Beautiful.

Once again a Butternuts brew that I feel has been underrated for having a fair balance of flavors. Butternuts are the kings of doing nothing spectacular, but I can hardly fault them for it. They consistently brew balanced beers with tame flavors and Snapperhead is no different. An IPA with a subdued hop profile, great light malt flavor and a smooth carbonation to boot. As much as craft breweries like to take risk with bold flavors, Butternuts does the opposite and isnít afraid to make good beer with subtle flavor. Certainly enough hops and the right malt flavor to be a no doubt IPA, but definitely a light, refreshing, session-able take on the style.
