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.

omhper (24642) - Tyres, SWEDEN - AUG 7, 2007
Canned at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Dark amber, minimal head. Evident apricot aroma. Medium sweet with rather clean mouthfeel and evident crystal malt character. The hops are freshening, which helps when the body is a bit syrupy and boozy. Finishes with medium bitterness. Decent, if a bit edgy.

Travlr (23631) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - FEB 15, 2010
Hazy golden color, small white head that disappears quickly and leaves little lacing. Aroma of hay. Flavor is malt and not much else. Little bitterness, poor balance. Uninteresting.

cgarvieuk (23285) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 1, 2008
Can from my GBBF haul ... amber with big foam head ... citrus wheaty nose ... soft mellow malts with a bitter hop background ... medium body ... medium to heavy carbonation ... this reminds me more of an american pale ale than a ipa.

Leighton (20637) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2009
Not bad, but didnt really distinguish itself from the pack of IPAs that Ive had. Had some on tap at Rattle n Hum. Decent hop character. Clean finish and nice mouthfeel. Aesthetically average. Yeah, I would drink it again but not if I had other options.

fiulijn (20222) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 9, 2009
Can at The Brickskeller, Washington DC
Hazy deep blond color; creamy head. The aroma is citrusy and resiny, creamy too. Dry mouthfeel, but quite good creamy toffee and fudge flavor; the final is even drier, with strong bitterness, bitter orange peel, and some sweet nuts. Quite good, a bit original (the creamy side) not exceptional, but it could help in a hot summer day.

rlgk (18841) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2012
Canned. Amber/copper beer with a decent beige head. Bready aroma, hop notes, roasted, fruity notes, grapes, grass, some herbal notes. Metal flavor, biscuits, dough, roasted, caramel notes. Some off flavors and not very clean. Bad example of an IPA.

Theydon_Bois (18734) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2013
Can at Chriso Snow Tasting, thanks to Henrik, 20/01/13. Hazed amber with a thin white head that clears to the edge. Nose is caramel malt, very thin hop aroma, slightly soured - strange one for an IPA! Taste improves a little from the nose, caramel malt, not much in the way of hops, fruits. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, some bitterness in the finish. One of the poorest IPAs Ive come across, balance is lacking, not great.
