3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Suspended particle laden amber with a medium taupe head that slowly fades away and a few light bubbles. Aroma of rye, citrus, malt and some vegetal notes. Taste of rye, mild citrus, caramel and light sulfur. Palate is a bit oily and it finishes up only mildly bitter. For some reason, this one doesn’t seem hoppy enough.

bottle 12 oz. - Poured copper color with small head that faded quick.
Aroma - hops , pine, citrus and grapefruit.
Flavor - Definite rye bread taste mixed with ample amount of hops.

Overall - Strong overall flavor for an IPA.
Rye adds to the taste and is better than original Bitter Woman. Does taste stronger than 5.9%, slight dissapointment!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle courtesy of BeerBelcher and opened at my refrigerator reduction tasting on 8/15/09. Pours a clear amber with a medium off-white head. Bready malt makes up most of the nose, but there are some citrusy and earthy hops as well. Flavor is a bit more balanced, with the citrusy hops coming through first before the bread hits you. Balanced and very good.
