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.

Cloudy golden clover honey color with decent head and retention. Resiny lemon hoppy aroma. Taste reveals sweet malt and some orange. Acidic finish and aftertaste.

Can via trade from notes. Pours a clear golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have pale toasted malts, caramel, biscuits, orange citrus, earthy, dry, older hops, not sure of age, Meh.

12 ounce can from Total Wine, Medford, a Brady IPA, reads like English IPA. Drinkable but not as advertised.

This is really strange....the aroma smells like green olives. I had another guy with me confirm. Not bad, just unique. The initial taste comes across as crisp, low malty flavor and their is a pale ale type bitter to follow. I would t call this an ipa, but its definitely not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a pale orange yellow. Aroma is sweet caramel. Taste is initially the same with a slightly drying bitterness in the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smells just like Budweiser which should not because Budweiser is a lager. Kellerís nice medium orange color. Taste very malty at first with almost no hop profile. Nice carbonation but leaves a foul taste on the back of the beer. One of the worst ipa Iíve ever had.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a pint glass. This is a cloudy golden colored beer with a large white head. The beer has heavy carbonation. The aroma is slightly medicinal and soapy, not very inviting. The flavor is medicinal with a slight unpleasant aftertaste. The best part of the beer is the graphics on the can.

Onslow (1366) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - OCT 29, 2015
Pour from a 12oz can. I guess the splash-bang IPAís have dulled my senses, because my first reaction was "This is an IPA?" If they say so... Aroma of sweet malt with weak resin. Taste is sweet up front, a bit buttery, a modest resin in the finish, a weak bitter flourish are the very very end. Well crafted and well balanced, obviously not an accident. I can relate to the sentiment of bucking the west coast resin tothe max IPA style but prefer the IPAís that go for light, agile, crisp but complex tropical fruit hoppiness on a light malt base.

ffbot (325) - Oakland, California, USA - OCT 29, 2015
Boring IPA unfortunately. No complexity, no smell to speak of, no real taste. Tastes old, watered down. No real hop presence. The body of the beer is good, light, low carbonation.... The palate fails, there is none.

matty (348) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2015
12 oz. can. Pours a hazy gold color with a thick off white head that sticks around. Some particulates floating around too. Aroma isnít much of an IPA - Iím getting some plastic & metallic notes. Medium-light body, the taste echoes the aroma, more of that plastic and metal. Can stamped on bottom had 2015-08-04. Finish was a little bitter. Not impressed.

Can. Unsure how they call this an ipa. Smells like Schlitz, tastes like Schlitz... Way too expensive for what u get. Ridiculous
