COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our India Pale Ale packs typical IPA balls but strikes a better balance between dryness and drinkability. Its every bit as rich but a little less bitter than other American interpretations of the breed, and heres why. We are smarter, better looking brew masters. It also doesnt 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.

blipp (9000) - 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. Its not too bad, drinkable.

Light Blonde pour with thin white head. Very light on the hops for an IPA. Not very memorable.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7619) - 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 (226) - 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.

nuplastikk (6141) - 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.

GregClow (3390) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 18, 2007
Can. Deep gold-copper colour with a good sized head. Aroma is fairly grainy, with some honeyed malt and mild hops. Medium bodied. Flavour is moderately hopped, and the finish is a bit sharp. Average.

hopson (635) - Williamsville, New York, USA - NOV 18, 2007
apple scent is a terrible way to start a beer off. Taste has a mild, drinkable bitterness. Daring? Not even close. This is a terrible attempt at the style.

12 oz can from a variety 12 pack. WORST IPA EVER!! I think that about sums this one up.

argo0 (14106) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 10, 2007
(12oz can) Small off-white head atop cloudy amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, caramel/butterscotch, some pine. Taste is medium sweet, a hideous combination of butterscotch and pine/grapefruit, mixed with some lemon floor wax. Medium body, somewhat dusky, syrupy.
