look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Look: Pours a clear bright amber with a really nice white head and great lacing retention.
Smell: Juicy pineapple, brown sugar, dried fruit. Nice and complex.
Taste: dried Dates, pineapple with a mild to medium kick of dry hops on the back end. Very well balanced.
Feel: big and full with a dry finish.

This may be my new favorite IPA!! At less than $8 for a six pack this is an awesome value.

12 oz can, dated 10/04/21, into small wide mouthed glass.

Deep but bright gold, large white head, lots of lace. Class A for American IPA.

A little spoilage here but not bad. Mostly hard-edged aromas of sharp pine, tin, stiff mandarin orange, and some crisp caramel malt.

Good overall flavor with melon, pine, grass, and juicy orange. Very nice profile.

Feel is crisp and carbonated with nearly no alcohol heat. Very very slight resins but don't hang on to the point of being annoying.

Overall, west coast style IPAs can get out of hand real quickly for me. This is a perfect example of one that doesn't, and is very enjoyable. I could drink this often. It's incredibly tasty and has both intensity and subtlety. Highly recommended. One of those beers that hits all the marks for me.

$7.79 / 6 pack / St Louis, MO

Bready malts upon the sniff, with some lime n resiny goodness.

Resiny, piney, flavorful west coast style brew….

Old review from back in July 2017, this is one of the beers Kimmmmeeee brought me when we went and saw Stapleton/Heartbreakers at Summerfest.

Pours a darker gold color with 1/2" white head. Aroma is bittering hops. Seriously, that is like, what it is, in its entirety.

Taste, damn bro, better like C hops (I do). This has to be classified as an old school ipa, its just C hops up the azz. Has all the grapefruit rind and pine tree you can break a stick off at. Centennial and Chinook pushing major weight here, El Dorado and CTZ taste like they are in the massive minority in comparison. The body is relatively clean, dry low stickiness maltings here. Mouth feel has me guessing this is around 70 ibu. Has an almost rye like spice to it, likely just a burly bitterness spin off. Carbonation was good on it.

If you're all about the slushy fruit smoothie or dank tropical fruit ipas, you're gonna hate this. If you want a bitter ipa kick, check it out.

this is really solid, as are pretty much all the beers i have ever had from these guys. not sure how i have missed this ipa until now. its got a unique hop complexion, a mix of bitter bite and citrusy freshness, substantial but clean, slightly nuanced on the grain side too, and fermented down beautifully dry at the end, somewhat distinct from the crowd, which is harder and harder to do these days with an ipa. something almost crystalline or candied on the hop side right up front, like citra to me, but maybe more potent and with an earlier start. behind that i get some sweet and bitter orange both, a dash of mango, and then some pithy bitterness, well dosed all around, nothing too aggressive, but the beer is robust overall. nice medium body to it, some biscuit notes to the malt keeping it balanced without much sugar, and high carbonation pushing the whole thing along, making it almost refreshing for what it is. this is more modern than a lot of other beer ive had from these guys has been, but it suits them. an excellent and recognizable ipa here, great hop profile.

I won a 6pck of this beer for my Fantasy football league from OPD. It poured a clear golden with white head that is leaving a nice lace. The scent had faint dank fruit notes. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with fruit presence. The mouthfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall its a good beer.

Canned Date: 04/16/19. Purchased a warm 6 pack on 06/09/19 and chilled immediately on ice. Drank on 06/09/19

Got this warm at a gas station display near Columbia, MO and it probably sat there warm for over a month so I might try this again if I found it chilled and fresher.

Decent taste, average aroma and weak body. This beer may have been mistreated at the end seller.

My favorite beer is Yeti an imperial stout which is my favorite style. This Snapper IPA is the Yeti of the IPA'S! Great tasty thickish velvety smooth Indian Pale Ale! This is what makes me love an IPA, this one is done right, most IPA'S are not. This beer should be praised, it is an IPA brewed perfection!

Gold in color with an inch of densely packed off white head that dissipates to a fingernail after a few minutes. Moderate lacing. I'm getting some nice citrus and light malt in the nose. The flavor is initially citrus and then finishes with a strong pine hop and malt flourish. The mouth is fairly dry and faintly chalk like and sticky.

Canned 11/01, so not the freshest, but it was refrigerated, and isn't that old.

Look: Snapper pours a hay color, chill haze creating a slight opaqueness, and a slight white head. The head dissipates after a minute or two.

Smell: The first scent I gather was a malty presence, grapefruit, and almost a honey.

Taste: The taste is certainly better than the nose, but not exactly hop dominated. Candied oranges, almost like a smarty candy, hit, as well as a presence from the malts, very bread like. The taste is nice, but not as assertive as I prefer

Feel: Medium bodied, seemingly little carbonation, and little bitterness. Nice.

Overall: This is a decent offering, but nothing I'd personally seek. I believe everything is worth trying once, so if you see it, grab it, and maybe you'll come to a different conclusion. The taste is pretty nice, but doesn't save the overall lack of what I want in the style.
