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.

Smells almost like a macro-brew, with basement aromas - not a good sign. The flavor is alright, although it doesnít taste like an IPA, it is more like a pils. I agree with the previous reviewer who picked up "musty grain". Low bitterness and not much citrus flavor. There are some hops in there, but I would describe them mostly as grassy with a little spruce. Some caramel malt, giving it decent balance. In terms of palate it is similar to an amber ale.
THERE IS NO FISH OR FISH FLAVOR IN SNAPPERHEAD

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
(Secret Krampus can from UDBeernut) Pours a semi-hazy orange color with a thin white head and a bit of lacing. Well, it certainly looks the part anyways. The aroma, however, quickly dispels the notion that this is a quality IPA, or even an IPA for that matter. Aroma is soured grain, and it smells like a sour. If there are hops in here, Iíd be hard pressed to smell them. Other than the sourness thereís really not much else going on. Flavor is just a hit of musty grain, slight breakfast cereal, and a finish of crushed vitamins that lingers well after drinking. Again, not detecting any hops here. Mouthfeel is surprisingly full however, but the carb is a bit too fizzy. Overall this is definitely worthy of the Krampus designation. Thanks Art!

Pours hazy amber with an off white head. Aroma is light citrus and caramel. Taste is sweeter and not very bitter at all. Medium bodied, smooth. Just not an IPA.

12oz can for Krampus via Boostipa. First off the can confuses me an "all malt" IPA which also states "farmhouse ale." What the hell is this supposed to be? Pours a hazy orange/copper with a large white head. Aroma of simple malts and rotten oranges with some scotch tape, was expecting worse. Very malt forward with a slight hop spice, like eating Cheerios with a bit of hop extract. Itís not horrible, certainly not very good, smells like trash but itís drinkable I suppose.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
