Snapperhead IPA

Snapperhead IPA comes in snazzy, yellow 355mL cans that feature a dapper fish wearing shades and listening to some tunes. Inside, I found a swampy, dull gold coloured ale that poured with a loose, cream head.

This beer has a surprisingly mild aroma for an India Pale Ale--it has a slightly malty, caramel vibe. It has a malt to bitter progression. The initial taste is a little bit on the thin side, though the finish is nice and hoppy with a slight citrus lead.

Snapperfish is brewed by Butternuts Beer & Ale of Garrattsville, New York. The alcohol content isn't listed on the can, but the website saysit contains 6.3%.

This is only a decent I.P.A. It'd have taken a bit more character to set this stuff apart from the legion of other I.P.A.'s on the market.

Rating: 6.5 out of 10.
