@ the GP tap room is the best place to enjoy this libation. Fresh, scented and full of flavor.
This is a high gravity offering that has become my favorite.
The color is is inviting with a rich head.
Taste is strong with a delicious and mild bitter.
Extremely smooth, dangerously smooth!

Snake in a can...more than a joke you pull on unsuspecting friends, this beer is a hoppy explosion of malt that now can be taken to the home fridge in a convenient package. The piney, citrus nose gives way to a rich malt backbone that would stand up well to spicy foods or an intense philosophical debate. From first pour to last sip, Snakehandler is a beer that doesn't shy away from being bold yet does not overwhelm as it snakes its way into your veins and massages your brain. Poured correctly, the thick frothy head rests comfortably atop liquid gold, a visual delight that is only eclipsed by the forthcoming tasting. Assembled in a judicious four-pack (believe me, it's for the best) it will make for a evening of fun and delight for all involved. Pick some up and see if you can handle the Snake.

Sampled at the Magic City Brewfest in Birmingham on June 6th, 2009.
First, let me say that double IPA is my favorite style of beer. I've had many different DIPA's, and Snake Handler rates at the top of the list.
The smell is spicy and citrusy, not unlike lemon zest. The color is deep copper with 2 finger head and great lacing.
The taste is full of various hop varieties, with incredible complexity due to the insane amount of different hops used. Malty foreground gives way to impressive hop aftertaste. This is a hophead's dream beer.
Even at such a high ABV, I could session this beer all day tastewise.

One of the best beers available in the south. If you can get it, its a must drink. It is a Double IPA, so bitter beer haters beware, but it's bitterness is not unreasonable or out of control like some IPAs. But what is really fantastic about this beer is that it's the easiest drinking 9.3% ABV beer I've ever had. Honestly I wouldn't think it was much higher gravity than about a 6% if I didn't know. It's just that smooth, doesn't have an overwhelming amount of body, and isn't too heavy. Quite simply the best beer you can buy that is brewed in Alabama.

A friend brought a sealed growler back to New York with her.
It poured a lovely head.
There's definite evidence of hop-bursting and dry-hopping with a good amount of hops.
The aroma is flowery with hints of grapefruit. It's one of the best Double IPAs I have ever tasted.
