COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Snake Hollow IPA. Style: West Coast IPA . Appearance: Light Copper . Aroma: Caramel aroma; hardy, rugged/pungent hop aroma (from the columbus hops), with hints of citrus and fruit (from select west coast hops). Taste: Medium body, caramely sweet, lingering robust bitterness. Hops: Columbus, Amarillo, Simcoe Dry Hopped with Columbus hops. 7% ABV• 15P • 70 IBU’s. Snake Hollow was the original name of the Potosi Hollow and here we have a brew with real character. It is an Inda Pale Ale, which according to tradition requires the plentiful addition of flavorful hops during the kettle boil. Subsequently during the aging process additional flavoring of hops are introduced into the storage tank to provide fine aromatic hop character. This sturdy ale will satisfy the many hopheads among the new age of beer aficionados. #PotosiBeer #SnakeHollowIPA #IPA

Look: pours burnt gold color. Thick white head that fades quickly. Very clear beer. Lacing fades into the glass as time goes on. Smell: citrus. Pineapple, orange, sweet citrus. Slight bitterness after the sweetness. Taste: light citrus. Pepper flavor. Can't taste the alcohol at all. Slight bitterness. Feel: slightly thicker mouth feel. Overall: smell us delicious, but taste just doesn't jump out like an IPA should in my opinion. Watch for the abv it will sneak up on you. First drank: home June 29, 2014

Bottle. First taste was a milder IPA, not overwhelming. The flavor become waterier and the palate more metallic after awhile.

phaleslu (6411) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 5, 2014
12 oz. bottle from my buddy’s rehearsal dinner at The Madison Club. Pours a somewhat cloudy orangish gold with a finger of white head that stays as an uneven small film and thick ring. Notes of grass, citrus zest, pale and crackery malts, florals, and a squeeze of soap. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a bitter, citrusy mouthfeel. Good IPA but not memorable.

Light copper color. Lots of head but very little lacing. Floral & pine aroma was promising but mouth-feel was thin with an odd after taste. Not a fave.

A fair IPA, nothing special, but good enough. Could use a little more kick in term of hoppiness and alcohol content. The folks at Potosi are close on this one.

Tap. Pale yellow pour with white head. Smells of hops and slight malt. Tastes a little bitter but not much for an ipa. Pretty good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

illiniphil (130) - Nashotah, Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Bottle from Discount Liquor/Waukesha. Pours golden copper with a nice head. Flavor falls a little short - it's missing something that I can't pinpoint. I find this typical of Wisconsin brewed IPA's in that they lack a robustness of flavor as found in a Stone IPA which unfortunately are not sold in Wiscy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at The Old Fashioned in Madison. Gold in color with a small white head. Aroma is of citrus, caramel, and grass. Taste is the same.

AWISLguy (1262) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Bottle from Discount Waukesha. Pours a clear golden orange with a white head leaving spots of lace. Aroma has pine and fruits and caramel. Nice aromatic blend. Taste is of sweet caramel malts, fronted with spicy pine needles, some fresh fruits and some grapefruit. Light to medium bodied. Somewhat sticky. Finishes bittersweet in a good blend of both bitter and sweet, without a lot of length. Solid offering.

It poured a clear copper color with an off-white head. The aroma was of moderate earthy hops. The taste was of bittersweet flavor with a moderate bittersweet finish. Well done.
