I loved this beer and if they don't bring it back soon, they're crazy. The greatest thing is that it introduces people like me to a brew that would be "unpalatable," to one that just allows one to slowly get accustomed to the IPA standards. We went there for Valentine's Day. I was so disappointed that I couldn't have my husband try the Tangerine IPA. He doesn't like IPAs as a rule. Food was great and beers they served were great! (433 characters)

"Snake Hollow IPA infused with 100% natural Tangerine juice."
Two drafts served in a fluted tulip glass, on tap at Mason Lounge in Madison, WI.

In the dim light, it looked to have sharp clarity, a bright orange color with a slim white cap of sticky foam. Random arcs and spotty lacing inside the glass.

Dank! Wow, this has a really nice and pungent aroma... funky, earthy hops and a burst of fruity citrus in the form of sweet tangerine/nectarine. Juicy and fresh, with distinct sticky hop resin bleeding through. They had to have dry-hopped this a bit, Snake Hollow never smelled this dank. Love it.

Distinctly sweet tangerine/nectarine notes, underlying resiny hop bitterness and supporting citrus notes. Pale malt is there too, hanging out underneath, giving a little bit of heft and balance. Smooth nectar-like feel, low to medium carbonation. Had to have two in a row, definitely unique and drinkable. Hope they bottle this, or at least get extra kegs out to more specialty beer bars in WI. (1,001 characters)

poured 16oz can into snifter

A - Pours a pretty light orange/golden hazy color. Big white 2 finger head on my pour and a nice amount of thick lacing.

S - A very pleasant scent as I pour. Big sticky sweet tangerine, citrus and floral hops with a nice caramel malt aroma.

T - Big on the sweet tangerine and citrus fruit flavors. Middle has a sweet caramel malty, honey flavor to really smooth it out. Finish has just enough bitterness.

M - Nice carbonation. Leaves oily residue on the tongue and is sticky sweet with bitter finish.

O - This is a very authentic tangerine flavor and an easy drinking IPA. 16oz cans are the perfect vessel for this beer. (657 characters)

On-tap at Three Cellars in Franklin, WI:

Pours orange-amber with a thin, lasting head. Lacing sticks.

The smell is of tangerine and a general citrus aroma. The aroma is robust, fruity and pleasant!

The taste is of tangerine - in a very real way. It has a touch of sweet pine to keep it from being too one-dimensional, but the tangerine stays in the front in a genuine way. There is a bitter touch to keep it an "IPA" in the finish.

It has a reasonably creamy body, though there is a bit of a sharpness to it.

The tangerine gets stronger as it progresses. There is a bitterness that balances it. It's an interesting fruit IPA! (631 characters)

Picked up a four-pack of pint cans at the Trig's Cellar 70 in Wausau. No production date is visible. Poured right from the fridge into a nonic pint glass.

L: Pours a bright orange blossom honey amber with about an inch-and-a-half of off-white head marked by large, quickly-dissipating bubbles. There's moderate lacing left on the glass. Quite clear, with minimal, lazy visible carbonation.

S: The aroma from the first pour is a little overwhelming, with a very strong canned (meaning not fresh and with some definite metallic notes) orange juice. This settles down pretty well after a bit: there's still a considerable orange/tangerine juice presence, but this works much better against some nice pine hop notes. The malt presence is bread-like, and there are some sour/herbal/earthy notes going on, as well.

T: Bread-like malts up front--sourdough-esque. A lot of sweetness coming in right away, perhaps some from the malts but the majority of it from what must be the tangerine fruit juice. The tangerine juice doesn't have a fresh flavor--definitely more like getting it from a can. The middle introduces some pine and grassy hop flavors, along with a bit of earthiness. There's still a good bit of sweet tangerine coming through here and into the back end. The close has a bit more of the malt and the pine hop shining through. There's a good bit of citric astringency at the finish, but there isn't much in the way of lingering hop bitterness. A slight bit of metallic notes on the close, as well.

F: On the lighter side of medium-bodied, this one has some creaminess to it aided by a good level of carbonation. There's a bit of syrupy quality likely owing to the fruit juice. A bit astringent and tart, but not particularly bitter.

O: I really wanted to like this beer: I'm a fan of Potosi's Snake Hollow IPA and their business philosophy (all profits going to charity). However, this one has too much sweetness and not a fresh enough juice quality to make it something that I'd recommend. It's possible that I got an old pack, so I will try again and update my review. (2,080 characters)
