IPA season is winding down, so I’m trying to enjoy and share as much as I can.  Time to transition into darker, maltier beers for the coming colder season.  I’m good with that.  It seems as natural as the changing seasons and Vanna White’s teeth.  What?  Snake Hollow IPA, from historic Potosi Brewing Company, Potosi, WI, pours with a huge, frothy head and produces tons of Brussels lace.  This medium to deep gold IPA shows lots of carbonation, and the hoppy bouquet leans toward the floral side.  Snake Hollow IPA is fairly restrained for an IPA, and its thinnish body betrays the fact that it possesses a good malty backbone.  It is a 7% ABV IPA, but it doesn’t overwhelm with a strong alcohol vibe.  A touch of dryness in the finish caps off the experience, which is all in all a good one.  Not a great one, but good, which is better than OK and a hell of a lot better than bad.  It makes me think more of a pale ale than an IPA, but Snake Hollow IPA would certainly help wash down a nice Sheboygan brat, which, coincidentally, is what I am doing this very moment.
