On tap at Old Fashion, Madison.
Served in a standard pint glass. Virtually no head and what is there dissipates to nothingness fairly quickly. No lacing. Aroma is... Tangerine. But it's a fermented tangerine, not the fresh juicy tangerine. And orange zest. First taste is brutal. Pure tangerine zest and citrus oils. Brutally pungent with intense citrus oils. But the pungent astringency wears on the taste buds and eventually you're able to pick up more than just orange zest. Tart, slightly acidic, orange, some mild pale malts. Bile. Lighter bodied, tart, moderately bitter, but its more of an astringency than a bitterness.
In the end this tastes like a blend of beer and orange juice. Not for me.

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

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.
