COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Weíd like to introduce Snaggletooth Bandana, our newest addition. A massive grapefruit, pineapple, and super-ripe mango aromatic burst out of this medium-bodied IPA. Assertive bitterness is balanced by a subtle malt sweetness and more citrusy fun. Youíll tell your grandkids about the first time you drank the Snaggletooth Bandana. And they will tell that story long after you. 6.5%ABV.

At the brewery, Man reading the description I was excited. Sounds like how I describe some of the best (I)IPAs out there. Well I get the beer and Im not getting the citrius hop bomb im expecting. Much more subdued, with a bad beer stink to it. Slightly bitter on the back end. Maybe Iím spolied since I drink Zombie dust on a regular basis, but this doesnt live up to any expectations or hype. Iíve had worse IPAs, but either the bottle was old or the date was unknown, for a brewery fresh IPA, this is at the bottom of my list.

I recently had this at Arrowhead Country Club in Wheaton, IL. This is my kind of IPA, sweet citrus aroma, smooth extra hoppy taste, nice crisp bite of after taste.

jstraw (1930) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Draft at Jerryís. Light orange with good, foamy, white head / Fruity, creamy nose of orange, pineapple, weed, pine, cream / Medium body, a hint watery, some astringency, with lots of bitterness on finish / Somewhat thin, very bitter flavors of orange peel, grapefruit, pine / The thin body and high astringency are a let down after the spectacular nose. A disappointing effort, but it happens, for this stellar new brewer.

Cloudy with an ester rich aroma. Fruity at first. Evolves into something without too much malt, which I love, but there's a thin hop finish which in this case could possibly have been improved by the addition of some extra malt. Not un-bitter, but not too gracious on the a.a. either. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

An above average IPAíS by my standards though it does pack a strong bite as advertised. I would not recommend to those who donít like beers with an edge; the flavor has a pleasant citrus flavor though this particular beer does not fit my personal tastes overall, itís worthy of consideration.

Draft at Zest in Downers Grove, IL. Aroma of fruit - mangos, pinapple, grapefruit. Unfiltered hazy appearance. Taste of fruit especially grapefruit and pinapple. Overall I like this beer alot - great for the warm weather (if we ever see it). ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Enjoyed on tap at the Solemn Oath beer dinner at Wild Monk. Served in a snifter. A: Pours a slightly hazy apricot color with a fluffy white head forming on the pour. It receded to a thin ring that left some splotchy lace down the glass. S: Citrus fruit and big tropical fruit influences going on. Pineapple and mango mostly with a nice citrus zest as well. Very light sweetness from the malts hits you on the end, but itís a hop bomb. T: The taste is more of the same. Pineapple and mango with a small smidge of grapefruit. Slightly sweet cracker malts with a pithy bitterness on the finish. M: Medium bodied with a nice medium carbonation level. Smooth with a clean finish. O: The galaxy hops were a nice addition and added a wonderful tropical fruit aroma to the beer. I will definitely be having this again whenever Iím able to find it.

Draught at the brewety. Medium dark slightly hazy orange with a creamy off-white head that thickly laces the glass. Very sweet honeydew like aroma and full sweet fruity citrusy body with a full bitter finish.
