COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This northwest IPA is bold and balanced, with a rich malty flavor and a strong hop presence. We use premium 2-Row, Crystal, Munich and Victory malts to create the perfect base for showcasing Yakima-grown Columbus hops. After one sip youíll agree, this is one hoppy bitch of a beer. 6.3% ABV 80 IBU

SHIG (3555) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle thanks to Duchammer: Poured a hazy copper orange with a white head. Malt aroma along with light hops. Gritty hops and malt. Does not live up to the name.

mikedR (1088) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Solid IPA. Would I call it a hop bomb, or even a hoppy be-atch? No. But itís good. Nice malt backbone. Malt-hops balance is 1-3. Pine-oriented hop notes. Nice bitterness, which isnít overwhelming. This beerís true problem is that itís misnamed, but I do like it.

stevoj (2008) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Nice looking beer with a towering, fluffy head. Not as hoppy as the name would imply. Malt is more prevalent, nice dark golden body, malt on the aroma, very bready/biscuit. Taste is also predominantly malt, some slight hop bitterness at the tail end. Long dry finish.

lightbias (61) - USA - MAY 22, 2014
Poured a hazy orange with a lasting white foamy head. Very pretty, no aroma, thin and bitter taste with no backbone at all. Flat and tasteless, but the bitter came through easily. Not a great combination. Disappointing considering the great artwork on the label and tantalizing name.

fiulijn (14340) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 12, 2014
Bottle from QFC, Seattle
Hazy golden color with medium sized compact head. The aroma is mildly hoppy. The mouthfeel is lean and dry; not much malt flavor, but decent hopping, a bit resiny and fruity; some toffee and liquorice in the final.
An easy one, midway between APA and IPA.

keefer (2) - Washington, USA - APR 24, 2014 does not count
Itís hoppy like the name says. Beautiful appearance and thick tast. 60 IBU, barely too strong to take a big gulp. But definitely one of my favorites thus far.

hayduke (3322) - Eureka, California, USA - APR 20, 2014
This was a shared tasting with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Before I even opened this beer Dave pointed out this was a neat label and drew attention to the stylistic "B" in Bitch. Poured orange with an off-whhite head and good lacing. Nose of tropical fruit and citrus hops on a good robust caramel malts. Flavor is pine, citrus, and there is a long dry and bitter finish. Really good beer and well balanced.

Bomber from Hayduke. We had it together via facebook chat. Cool label, especially the "B". This is somewhat clear and is deep golden. A 4 finger off white head slowly falls. Citrus and tropical fruit in the aroma and little else. That is also tasted and the first sip brings a bitter bite. Some spiciness. Grapefruit and tangerines. A little pine in the finish. This beer was definitely well named. Malts werenít really noticed. This was, indeed, a hoppy bitch.

ajnepple (1995) - Clear Creek, Colorado, USA - MAR 12, 2014
22 oz bottle pours orange and pretty clear with a lasting off-white head and sticky lacing. The nose is hoppy, bitter and piney with herbs, floral notes, light citrus and light malts. Similar flavor, resinous, bitter, zesty, earthy hops with a light malt backbone. Medium body, crisp and carbonated well with a lingering finish, a little harsh.
