look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Bottle thanks to Barrythebear. Poured from 12oz bottle into a tulip glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear golden orange with a half finger of head that settles to a thin layer.

Smell: Primarily earthy, piney hops on the nose.

Taste: Very grassy and earthy taste. A slight hoppy bitterness, but not too intense.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with a dry finish.

Overall: Decent beer that is focus more on the bitter aspect than a citrusy one. Would drink again.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours semi cloudy orange with a nice white head that dissipates quickly. Smells of citrus and floral hops, very inviting. Tastes of nice citrus hops, decent grain body. Beer is slightly heavily carbonated but still finishes nice for light body. Overall, a very good beer.

Snake hollow pours a dark cooper color with a small lacing head. There is a bold aroma that is similar to dirty hot dog water. The taste has a nice bold malty backbone with a good spicey hop kick. Good bold flavors. Overall strong flavors and very balanced.

On tap at Graze after the never-fail-we've-just-run-out-of what-you-ordered that seems to follow me without care or concern for my well being.

I've had Snake Hollow numerous times and have even had remnants of six packs lie dormant in a fridge only to be rediscovered on beerilogical digs. That stressed, I've never been particularly fond of this beer nor have I felt compelled to review it. That changed last night.

Served in a pint at Graze, this incantation of Snake Hollow explodes with a ripe juicy orange on the nose and an understated yet welcomed prop of light and doughy caramel.

While admittedly disappointed that my first beer of choice was unavailable, and feeling a bit like a little bitch for feeling at all disappointed on a night out with the wife on a beautiful evening, Snake Hollow took me by surprise early a didn't let up. Lots of juicy pink grapefruit through, which is fat pitch in my discerning zone. Malt props and supports but doesn't mangle what the fresh hops seem bent on delivering. The finish is nice and pine driven with a lingering bitterness that slowly fades back to grapefruit and leaves me desirous of another sip.

I frequently lament on the fact that while Madison gets a very solid selection of beer, many of the frequently available IPA's are lacking....at least in what I seek out in a hoppy beer. And while I've had relatively ho-hum experiences with this beer, this version, on this night, was exactly what this guy needed. A very surprising and welcomed glass of beer.

Serving type: on-tap
