"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.

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!

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a 1 pint can on September 13, 2015. 55 ibu and 6.5% abv. Look is medium copper amber, thick head that fades to a ring, and nice lingering lacing. Smell is tangerine with hints floral hop. Taste is tangerine, tart citrus, bitter hop and sweet malt notes. Feel is medium in body, syrupy at first but then creamy in the finish.

16oz tallboy, served in a snifter glass.

Pours a darker copper body, two finger white head with nice retention, a bit of splotchy lacing. Smells of dank oranges and citrus; non-descript caramel sweetness. Fairly simple, but not bad. Flavour is not quite so interesting, unfortunately- a decent bit of a metallic flavour overshadows a hefty tangerine/orange presence; it's almost to the point where it's more of a fruit beer than an IPA. Fairly bitter orange rind presence. Mouthfeel is thinner bodied, quite bitter, good carbonation, dry with a bitter orange rind finish. Overall, it just didn't work for me; I think there was too much tangerine involved here that it essentially tasted like boozy metallic tangerine juice.

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.
