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!

Poured from 16 oz can into goblet.

A: Pours golden brown with 1-2 finger white head. Fairly long retention and plenty of lacing.

S: Bright floral hops and a huge punch of citrus that hit me as soon as I popped the top. Mostly tangerine but some pine and grapefruit hanging around in the back.

T: Sweet tangerines dominate but mixed with grapefruit, orange peel, and earthy hops.

M: Medium body and average carbonation leaving some oily resins on the tongue.

O: Refreshing twist on an IPA. Not something I want everyday, but I liked it quite a bit.

"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.

2015: the early test batches of this were way better than the version they finally canned.
Canned version I'd rate a 3.75 or so.

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.

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!
