"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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
