3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very Balanced with a very forward malt profile and finishes with a good hop flavors and aromas....very sessionable IPA and is not over hopped like a lot of the IPAís on the market today.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
