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.

Pours a frosty orange color with two fingers of off-white head. Head is big and bubbly, with good retention and lacing. Aroma is light and fruity. Slight pine and resin hop twinge to it. Flavor profile is certainly hop forward, but not in a mouth bashing way. Fruity, citrus, and orange hop notes sweep across the tongue first, with a slight resin hop quality giving the beer a slightly longer finish. Mouth feel is bubbly, but otherwise fairly thick. It's right on the cusp of being a little too thick for enjoying on a hot day, and yet it's just thick enough to be enjoyable on a cold day. Well rounded feel here. Overall, it's a solid representation of the IPA style. It's not a tongue executing beer, but rather something that can be enjoyed and savored, or shotgunned before a college football game (I see you, Columbia, MO).

Served in a 12oz snifter.

I found this to be overly generic. As if someone read the Wikipedia page for IPAs and said 'let's do that.' Not bad, but uninspiring.
