Snake Hollow IPA. Style: West Coast IPA . Appearance: Light Copper .

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

This is an OK IPA, that could use more balance in terms of bitterness, hop flavor and attenuation. Bitter sweet type with resin, pine tar flavors that dominate. Just need a bit of tweaking.

12fl oz bottle poured into a Dogfish Head IPA glass. Golden Amber with a tall white head. Aroma is grapefruit, cereal, and candy. Flavor is more of the same with small hops kick at the end. Finish is lasting bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pour is a clear copper with a average white head. Aroma is more of a sweet malt and a herbal hop. Flavor is more of a dryer malt with again a very mild almost minor hop. It was not a sweet malt bomb like I thought it was going to be but in the world of IPA’s this would be way far down the list of ones to try. Really almost no noticeable hops are present.

bottle. Pours golden orange with a decent sized white head. Aroma of pine and citrus. Taste is piney hops, light citrus and a hint of malt at the end. Light to medium bodied with a short, piney finish. Not bad. I would definitely have another..

12 oz bottle from Hy Vee Wine & Spirits - Muscatine. Golden orange and clear appearance with a small beige head. Aroma of citrus hops, pine, floral notes. toasted grains, light toffee/caramel and light herbs. Similar flavor, moderate to heavy hop bitterness and minimal to light malt sweetness. Medium body with a crisp feel and a lingering, dry finish with a touch of alcohol. Decent, but kinda of hard to drink after a while.

All the proceeds from this go to charity so the brewers might be good people but they sure do make some garbage beer. This one is perfectly clear orange w/ a small head of fine white bubbles. This claims to be an IPA but isn’t really terribly hoppy, esp. in the nose. I get a bit of caramel and grain and you can’t really tell there’s much of the way of hops in there until you get to the strong, earthy hop bitterness in the finish. I suppose this does provide balance to rather sticky, heavy sweetness but really that’s enough that nothing is going to save this beer. Needless to say, I am not a fan. I recommend you do not buy this.

Finhead (1403) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - SEP 23, 2014
A clear, golden pour with a white head. The aroma has floral and pine hop notes. It has a light, crisp body with almost fizzy carbonation. The taste is bitter with a dry finish.
