COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Big, fat & flowing with hoppiness. Humongous nose... bursting with flavor... and intense mouth-numbing bitterness. The Bitter Woman’s evil alter ego!

Bottle from a trade with MIBRomeo. Pours hazy copper color with off white head. Very malty aroma with a hint of hops. Not sure how old this bottle is. Flavors of caramel and iced tea with some mild hop bitterness. Medium body with average carbonation. Thanks Chuck.

12 oz. bottle (from notes 12/07). Pours amber with a medium sized off white head. The aroma is malty with a hint of yeast. The hops are more piney than anything else. The flavor is bitter and aggressive on the tongue. Flavors of chewy toasted malts, honey, pine, some citrus and floral hops as well. There is a split top wheat bread character that comes through as it warms. Dry bitter finish. This was solid fresher, but changed as it aged quite a bit.

12oz bottle. Dark gold pour with a white head. Mmmm...smells like an IPA. Very nice hop bite, lasts on the tongue for awhile. Very nice.

A little one-dimensional. Big, floral and citrusy hops on the nose. Pungent! Nice! Impressive! Delicious hop flavor. Bitter, citrusy and lively carbonation. Nice, but nothing new to this palate. Definitely an enjoyable, unique brew, but doesn’t really break away from the pack in any significant way.

Love the hops on this monster! There is nothing like a beer that smells like a flower and tastes like like acid. Yum!

Pretty nice amber color with a white head leaving excellent lacing. Nice smell of pine, citrus, biscuit and caramel. Nice smell, just doesn’t shoot out of glass like I had hoped. Starts out with caramel but quickly pine and citrus take over. Pretty nice, but could be better. Low carbonation and medium bodied. Pretty good and would have it again, I just wouldn’t go way out of my way for it.

Bottle thanks to ogglethorp. Nice amber pour with big off-white head. Citurs and bready nose. Great big hoppy bite up front, with orange peel all over the tongue. Nice mouthfeel, that really sticks to the palate. Very bitter, yet there is still a nice carmalized sweetness from the malt that shows towards the finish.

Pours a lightly hazy, dark orange amber color. A large, spongy, cream colored head shows excellent retention, leaving thick clumps of lacing on the glass. Despite some age, the nose still shows alot of hops. Orange juice and soft grapefruit provide fruity hop notes, while some resinous pine provides a solid, bitter punch. Big time caramel and toffee malts add good balance, providing creamy, buttery scents. The flavor mirrors the nose, with a well balanced blend of malty caramel and toffee matched against sharp citrus and pine hops. The mouthfeel is substantial, creamy, and perfectly carbonated at this point. Finishes long, with bitterness coming through on the roof of the mouth. When fresh, I’d bet this is the most impressive of the Tyranena IPAs. As it is, with some age on it, its still pretty damn good.

bottle. Reminds me of some of the other Tyranena offerings....and that’s a good thing! Amber pour...small white head. I know that aroma...big sweet maltiness, citric piney hop aroma. Medium bodied, sweet cara-malt flavor with a matching light hop backup. Bitter at the end but not harsh at all....not a bit. Tasty session style IPA.
