COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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’.

Smells almost like a macro-brew, with basement aromas - not a good sign. The flavor is alright, although it doesn’t 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

Hammy78 (779) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 12, 2014
Can. Pours a cleanish copper colour, fluffy white head, lots of lacing. Nose isA-typical to style. Tastes a little bitter, a base maltiness, transitions back to the hops.

Pours a slightly hazy copper color With a nice frothy head. Aroma is citrucy hops and some grapefruit. Medium mouth feel. Pretty standard ipa but it’s good so why such a low score?

Little aroma. Hint of ginger. Watery. Looks good. Off orange. Very nice head. Taste is meh. Hops are full but present. Fade terribly.malty. super malty. This ain’t no ipa. Palate is supernheavy but watery at the same time. Hops fade poorly. Overall not a terrible beer but terrible for the style. This is more like a pale ale. Even so the flavors are muddled. This is what I was talking about with the blood bath. Beers like these just won’t survive.

Dogbrick (8683) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Hazy orange color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily to an outer ring. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and toasted malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of zesty citrus, hops and bready malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a short hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

Emeister84 (1129) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 4, 2014
Aromas of grainy and bready malts, hops are pretty subdued. Murky amber-brown with a mostly lasting small, off-white head. Balanced but not offering a whole lot of complexity. Light-medium bodied.

Can. First of all, in this world of a million IPAs, this one is truly unique....in a good way. Yes, the hops are there, it is well balanced and IT ISN’T SO FREAKIN’ BITTER THAT IT MAKES YOUR EYES WATER!!! Great job Butternuts.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was basically a hazy orange color with a slight transparency about it. There’s a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some light lacing sliding right on into the beer. The smell had mainly some burnt caramel malts with a subdued breadiness of sorts. There was some light piney hops that mainly stayed in the background. The taste was mainly sweet through the caramel malts. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a sessionability that wanted to try to show but those malts, hmmm...we’ll it seems there’s just too many in the way. Overall, this is an IPA? Says who? There’s barely any hops in this thing. Another beer by Butternuts that is unimpressive.
