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’.

20070303 12oz can. A terrible concoction of sugar, cardboard, tea, wet lawn. I don’t notice any hops. My score feels overly generous, but it wasn’t so bad to look at.

12 oz. can. Pours a hazy amber with a moderate off-white head that lasted until mid-glass and left partial lace. The aroma is sweet malt and surprisingly light floral hops. If this is an IPA, the aroma seems to indicate its going to be mildly hopped. The first few sips confirm it. While there is plenty of sweet malt, the hops are light and frankly not all that flavorful. As a pale ale, this beer would be ok, but as an IPA, it is lacking somewhat.

McGarnigle (653) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 22, 2008
Can. Hazy orange-tinged brew. This is, ultimately, a relatively low-hopped IPA. Not that it’s really just a pale ale or even an English-style IPA. It just tastes like many other IPAs, but without the big grapefruit or pine finish. Lots of grainy malt, and a good amount of overall taste. Maybe its balanced and all the others aren’t. But still feels like they didn’t finish it.

blipp (9504) - La Mesa, California, USA - APR 5, 2008
Draft at MacGregors in Rochester. Pours amber with an off white head. Aroma is very light with notes of citrus hops. Medium body. Flavor is hoppy overall, with notes of lemon, grass, and caramel. It’s not too bad, drinkable.

rob897 (62) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAR 28, 2008
Light Blonde pour with thin white head. Very light on the hops for an IPA. Not very memorable.

2.9
FROTHINGSLOSH (7950) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 18, 2008
Sampled from a 12 oz can this beer poured a hazy golden-amber color with a medium sized yellow-white head. The aroma was grassy, floral and had a light nutty malt undertone. The flavor was sour and tangy with light fruity and floral hops and a dryish, musty and a touch nutty malt base.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 28, 2008
Pours a transparent bronze with a thin, spotty-lacing white head. Has a sweet caramel nose with some fruity grape and cherry notes that remind me of chewable multivitamins I took as a youth. Body has a decent fullness and some malt sugary sweetness with a mild balance of grapefruity hops toward a crisp bittersweet finish. An ok IPA that could be pretty good with a few recipe tweaks.

beerbomb (228) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 16, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2008 I was impressed by their porkslap pale ale so I tried this...big disappointment. Looks good enough but smells obnoxiously sweet and grainy and has something else like rotting herbs. Flavor is a tad better with some earthy hop bitterness but not by much. I really dont like overly sweet IPAs with not enough hop dimension and this is one of them.

3.8
nuplastikk (6373) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 11, 2007
12oz can. Hazy orange color. Bitter and dry, with a pronounced citrus hop bite. Crisp and sweet malt shine through a little. Quite an enjoyable IPA, wish i knew the ABV.
