COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Whipper Snapper is an American Mild ale. So it is a sort of hybrid beer where is has the light body and low alcohol of a British Mild. Though it has the color and hop characteristics of an American IPA. So at 4.5% abv it is a session IPA. Enjoy!

bottle courtesy of cletus, thanks a ton man! pours a nice hazy amber with a nice creamy head, 2 finger, that has good retention and great lacing. aroma is some bitter hops, some stinky cheese, but still very pleasant. the flavor is a godd, balanced ipa, but very, very light and easy. this would be a great converter for a macro drinker, really light yet proper flavor. i gave the palate 5 on this one. it drinks like water, just disappears. nice and full upfront, yet nor obtrusive, and super, super smooth. i like!

Bottle thanks to Jblauvs! Pours a near clear gold with a slight amber hue and a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces nicely. Aroma has a good combination of grapefruit, pine and floral hops with a bit of resin and sweet grains coming out in the finish. Flavor has a similar combination of pine and grapefruit that becomes a bit more floral in the finish. Really nice.

Missed this on tap, but grabbed a bottle. Man, I wasn’t expecting to like this, but this really is the ultimate session beer. Golden brown. Light and dry in the mouthfeel, with a tart citrus zing behind a biscuity/honey malt. Light sweetness, moderate bitterness, just pleasant on the tongue. Would like this on tap or cask.

Had this today at the brewery. Pours a slightly cloudy deep golden color with a thinnish white head that displays minimal retention and moderate lace. Smell is a nice balance of citrus and earthy hops with a smattering of bready sweet malt. Taste follows the smell fairly well. Medium to thin body, moderate level of carbonation, sticky resinous mouthfeel. Nice little session ale I could have sat there all day drinking these if I lived closer.

Amber copper pour with a moderate offwhite head. Aroma is a bit biscuity with some light caramel malt and grass. Mouthfeel is smooth, light, very drinkable, a perfect session ale. Flavor is lightly bitter with some subtley sweet caramel toasted malt ballancing out the bitterness. really nice session ale

Draft pours a cloudy copper color with a one-finger white head. The aroma is nicely big and hoppy for the low ABV. Great citrusy hop profile with biscuit and honey malt notes. The flavor is also very hoppy. Citrus - orange and lemon - dominate, with a considerable earthy note. Slight sweet pale malt, biscuit, and honey to back it up, but overall this is like a poor man’s Ballast Point or Alpine session pale, or Stone San Diego Session Ale. True to the west coast hoppy beer style, except it’s from New Hampshire. Great light palate with good carbonation and assertive hop resins. Really enjoyed this one overall. Could session this easily.

Pours gold into a shaker. Bright white head with medium retention recedes to hug rim. Mild resin aromas. Thin with sweet hay and caramel upfront turning to bitter grapefruit pith in the lasting finish.

Bottle at home with friends, courtesy of Doodler. Thanks, I think?!? Gigantic gusher. Pour is hazy orange with a big white head and great lacing. Bretty, tropical fruity, grapefruit, papaya, grass, biscuit, and dough in the aroma. Taste is papaya, mango, pineapple, grass, light weed, biscuit, and bread with a medium bitter finish. Clearly infected, yet somehow it works. Light body with soft carbonation. Pretty tasty, even though it was unintended.
