Don’t fight it. Spite it! Cyclists beware! This city is a minefield: potholes, ruthless cabbies, pedestrians texting - and a headwind from hell. Arm yourself! This Double India Pale Ale was brewed for you. Loaded with Zythos, Columbus, and falconer’s Flight 7c’s hops. Bitter Biker is our homage to the trials of the year-round biker. Ride Safe, stay bitter, and watch out for oblivious fools!

Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed while watching game 7 hockey on a cold late May Saturday night. Appearance is a lightly ruby dark gold with a thin but frothy head. Aroma of sweet caramel, bitter, rich. Taste is rather sweet, bitter, thick, good stuff.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with small white head that quickly diminishes to nothing. The aroma is citrus and pine. Thick mouth, dry hop, lingering bitterness, very nice.

Sampled at ESBLS. It poured an orange color with a white head. The aroma was of tropical fruit, some pine and a little earthiness. The taste was of pine, guava, pineapple, orange, hoppy bitterness and a mild lingering bitter finish. Nice.

Bottle. The pour is a deep dark orange. The aroma is all hops. The taste is also full of hops, a little bitter throughout. Big beer for sure. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber from La Primera. Pours a hazy orangish amber with an orange head leaving some lace. Aroma has pine, citrus and caramel. More caramel down through the glass. Taste is of grapefruit and sweet caramel, with some tangy spicy pine and some resin. Medium bodied and lowly carbonated. Finishes to the sweet side of bittersweet with some alcohol. Perhaps this sat around a bit but this was much more caramelly than hoppy.
