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’.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wow. I’m really surprised at all of these negative ratings. The style says IPA, but it’s 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 isn’t 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.

Can - pours cloudy orange with a white head. Aroma is a little skunky malty. Taste leans bitter. It’s just so boring.... I can’t be bothered to write more.

toffee colored. big fluffy head. barnyard aroma, not much hops for an IPA. fairly thin. kinda like a weak amber ale. in fact, probably more malt than hops. still seems fairly light/sessionable. completely unoffensive.

radarsock (1120) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 20, 2013
355 mL can. Bought for .99˘ at Top Shelp Brews. Couldn’t pass up. Pours a darkish orange, thin trim off-white head. Smells and tastes of onions, malt, sour cream, and sweat. This is fairly gross for an IPA.

Can, at home. The aroma is muted, light hops and crackery malt. The flavor is bready malts, some caramel, and a pithy bitterness. The middle is a bit creamy. Has a kind of butterscotchy, medicinal finish. Certainly not enough hop character to be classified as an IPA. Feels more like an East Coast Pale Ale. Nothing terribly offensive, just a poor example of the style that is claimed.

A very strong IPA with a kick, very good balance of hops and dryness that you want to find in an IPA it is also a kick ass can!

maekchu (2767) - 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.
