COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our India Pale Ale packs typical IPA balls but strikes a better balance between dryness and drinkability. Itís every bit as rich but a little less bitter than other American interpretations of the breed, and hereís why. We are smarter, better looking brew masters. It also doesnít 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 ínon-sensical ideationí.

maekchu (2134) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAR 14, 2013
Can from Five Points Bottle Shop (Lumpkin St.) in Athens. Yeast and some light citrus notes in the nose. Copper/orange color, 1-cm head, lots of carbonation. Very light sweet and somewhat buttery initial / mid has a truly yucky, chemical sort of harsh fruitiness / finishes with sugar mostly. Thin-medium body. Pretty much swill.

Elwood (3168) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAR 7, 2013
Serving: 12 oz. can from Total Wine Sterling. It pours a hazy, light orange color with a small, frothy, white head. The nose is faintly sweet and fruity, but nothing in the way of hops. Not surprisingly, the flavor is about the same. There is a little caramel sweetness, slight stone fruit notes, and the slightest of bitterness. Pretty damn weak for an IPA, but overall drinkable as a beer.

Den här börjar bra med fin färg, bra skum och arom, viss fruktighet men väldigt kort eftersmak helt utan beska ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

redisant (3) - Oakville, Connecticut, USA - FEB 25, 2013 does not count
Overall a disappointment. Possibly a good light summer beer but has very little notable flavor for a claimed IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

355ml can (Snow@ChrisO)
OK-ish aroma - some hops there, certainly, but a bit sweet and messy. Swimming pool taste - yeugh. Being dreadfully boring isnít its worst crime. Being shit is.

Bottle sample at a tasting at LiBira Pub in Haifa. Thanks tomer. Pours orange to yellow with a nice head, aroma of fruits, vanilla, marmalade and some funky tones, flavor is bitter with bizarre sourness, malt, lemon and citrus skin bitterness, medium bodied

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Can. Pours a lightly hazy yellow orange color with a frothy white head. Nose is kind of stinky with grass notes and light sweet honey. Palate is thin and uneventful. Flavors if grass light fruit and a dry yeasty note. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Scopey (6833) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2013
Can at ChrisO Snow Tasting, thanks to Colin. It pours deep hazy orange with a medium white head. The nose is caramel, tangy apricot, fleshy peach, metal and wood. The taste is caramel, tart orange, mango, grapefruit, metallic, pithy, toast and wood with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Not exactly bursting with flavour, but not too bad. A bit watery perhaps.....

JLLSU (238) - Acworth, Georgia, USA - JAN 25, 2013
12oz. can---> tulip. Pours a hazy orange with little head and next to no lace. Aroma is heavy caramel malt and thatís it. Tastes like a caramel apple cider, Thin palate with very little carbonation. This may very well be the worst IPA Iíve ever had.

Theydon_Bois (8668) - The íSham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2013
Can at Chriso Snow Tasting, thanks to Henrik, 20/01/13. Hazed amber with a thin white head that clears to the edge. Nose is caramel malt, very thin hop aroma, slightly soured - strange one for an IPA! Taste improves a little from the nose, caramel malt, not much in the way of hops, fruits. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, some bitterness in the finish. One of the poorest IPAís Iíve come across, balance is lacking, not great.
