Wed 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. Youll tell your grandkids about the first time you drank the Snaggletooth Bandana. And they will tell that story long after you. 6.5%ABV.

I wouldnt have picked this up had I known it was five months old, but thats life I guess. Not much carbonation, no head except a delicate lace. Smell is pineapple, mango, mostly sweet, some pine. Flavor is fairly dry, fruity with a hint of herbs and wintergreen. Finish is sort of flat. Not terrible, but next time Ill check the date: its on the bottom rim, not the bowl.

sawbuck (717) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - MAR 28, 2017
Mild aroma of grapefruit. Light golden color with a quickly disappearing white head. Sweet malt up front. Over the top citrus, mango, up front, almost artificial. Bitterness cuts in to somewhat balance. Very dry. Slick mouth feel. Finish is mostly bitter with some cardboard. 12/20/16 date on can....will try a fresher version.

jinroh (1456) - ESTONIA - DEC 5, 2016
Pours quite clear golden. not much carbonation. Aroma is fruity, quite subtle, honey and not too much bitterness. Taste is more hoppy, has some grass, and somewhat dank. Dry finish, lingers for a while. Not bad but maybe hops are a bit faded by now, the beer is like 5-6 months old.

One of the best balances with grapefruit I have had. Love the pineapple balance makes it smooth and drinkable rather than a carbonated feel ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz. can, consumed on 10-9-16. 08 12 16, so its just under two months old. Labeled as The Snaggle Tooth Bandana. Pours a mostly clear but slightly hazy bronze with a moderate amount of off-white to cream-colored head. Moderate effervescence. The color doesnt thrill me. Scents of green grape and green grape must. Some lemon and some bitterness. Light aroma. White grape juice. Peach and generic citrus. Floral. Fairly dry. Pretty low in flavor. Not doing it for me. Tobacco-like, bitter aftertaste. Medium body. Frothy and smooth in the palate. A forgettable IPA that is the opposite of what I want in aromatics and flavor (floral and fruity as it is). I am thoroughly unimpressed. Bland and boring.

12 oz. can pours a slightly hazy golden orange. Small white head disappears quickly and leaves no lacing. Aroma is caramel malts first, then pine and citrus. Taste is bitter at first and in the finish with noticeable sweetness in the middle. Body is light to medium with a slightly sticky mouthfeel and not much carbonation. After seeing the artwork on the can and the hype about telling your grandkids about the experience, I was worried that this would be over-the-top. Its just another decent IPA from the suburbs.

A really smooth tasting beer. Had a nice hoppy flavor and was intense but drinkable.

ChiGuy68 (590) - Illinois, USA - SEP 14, 2016
Tasted from a 12oz. can. It poured a slightly hazy golden hue with lively carbonation, a quickly dissipating white head and absolutely no lacing. Mild pine and citrus nose. A nicely bitter hop taste with a hint of grapefruit. Big flavor without being too aggressive. I wont remember this first time I drank Snaggletooth Bandana, so I will not be telling anyone (let alone my imaginary grandkids), but I will remember to buy and drink this tasty IPA again. Its good to see Chicagos suburbs living up to Chicago strong IPA tradition.

Can from Dale. Amber pour with small airy head. Caramel malts first on aroma. Not overly hopped, but not juicy east coast either. A bit of a metallic tinge on the finish. Solid IPA.
