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!

"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.

Pretty tasty stuff and an interesting approach. Served at a good temperature with a nice, foamy, thick, cream colored head that slowly settles down and lots of lace. Color is a clear, orange amber with some varying sized bubble trails. Aroma is malt, hop, caramel, fruit, Flavor is like nose - tangerine comes thru along with citrus, resin hop flavor and some carbonic tang. Body is good and ditto carbonation. Finish is like flavor, longish and good for at least one more draught.

Transferred over from my tasting notebook.

"A Blend of Snake Hollow IPA and tangerine juice" is how it describes itself, and it plays out exactly as advertised. This brew is indeed both an American IPA and a Fruit Beer... so its one of those beers that is free-form rather than adhering to conventional styles... which is neither good nor bad, it just..."is".

Appears vibrant orange with a frothy, fine bubbled head with medium levels of lacing. The body is slightly too thick from the addition of the fruit juice, however, which is a minor problem. Puckery sweet-tart tangerine on the beginning of the sip complements the pineapple and heavy citric hopping presence quite well. Backs off on the sweetness just before it would have become cloying, tempered by the grainy malt and piney hopping. Aroma has some cannabis aspects as a minor element. On the sweet/sour spectrum, sits up at about the same place as a nice puckery tart kriek, only this brew has IPA hopping on top of all that tartness...I like it a lot, and my only nitpick is that the viscosity is about 10% too high, but tastes do vary on issues like that. It actually feels kind of "healthy" as I drink it..as if I were having an (modified) tall glass of orange juice! When it comes back into season, I will certainly be seeking this one out again.

Growler brought from the brewery - thanks to my sister

A - pours a clear orange-copper, little bit of white head

S - tangerine comes through, not too strong, with citrus and malt subtly following

T - tangerine present here too, fairly sweet, complemented by bitter, piny hops

M - fairly thin, well-carbonated

O - good take on a fruit IPA - similar to Scurvy from Tyranena but a bit sweeter with the tangerine
