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’.

Can. Pours slightly cloudy orange with large foamy off-white head, light orange peel aroma, medium carbonation, medium bitter taste, thin body, long bitter orange peel finish. Decent, not great.

0.355l can. This one pours a cloudy honey orange colored body with a nice lasting and lacing white head on the top. Smells kinda old and a little earthy. Like a old pilsner, kinda grainy. Not very fresh or inviting, definitely not very ipa ish. Tastes much the same, but in addition it has this unpleasant sourness. Mild oily in the mouth and it’s just below average on the carbonation. Nah, I won’t even finish this one. Not very good. 17.06.2017

I had it from the can. It was piny hops and caramel malt. There was more caramel and less citrus than usual. It was more creamy than your typical IPA. This was decent.

These guys talk a lot of smack in their description for having crap beer. Weak hoppy beer, even if it was a pale. Biscuit and dirt, weak hops. Watery. Even so, "better" than Porkslap.

Burk. Klar guldfärgad med ett smutsvitt skum. Dofter av malt och karamell. Även i smaken är malten dominerande. Det smyger sig på lite humliga toner i eftersmaken, och resultatet är inte helt misslyckat. Det är i alla fall drickbart.

This is pretty poor, even as a pale ale. Just a faint hop with a thin tinny finish.

R4N5H (1321) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 14, 2016
12oz can at Stout, NYC on 12-Nov-2016, served in a shaker. Cloudy pale amber colour with a medium sized white head. Aroma of light pine, sweet fruit and malt. Light/medium body and carbonation. Flavour of grapefruit, lemon and sweet malt. Light bitterness. Not enough hops for me. A beer that lacks complexity and depth - but still better than a Bud.

12 oz can poured in pint glass (from 2010 notes). The can says "Farmhouse Ale" IPA. A - hazy golden amber with slightly off-white head. Head has good retention. Taste and aroma both reflect nicely balanced and generously applied malt and hops. Likewise, some sweet malty taste is nicely balanced with hop bitterness. Balanced initial flavor is followed by a nice rush of hoppiness, with a long lasting finish. Excellent save for a slight off-taste that may simply be some hop components that are not my favorites. Good carbonation. Mouthfeel is both creamy (early) and crisp (later).

Pours a cloudy yellow/gold with a 2 finger foam head with good retention. Nose is not an IPA nose - it is more basic "beer" (mass produced ones). The taste is also not like an IPA. I get mostly malt, and caramel sweetness on the finish. More Pilsner than IPA. Reading the reviews, I was concerned this was going to be bad...it's fine. While nothing like an IPA, it's decent and a totally average, easy to drink beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
