Golden amber pour with an off-white head. Aroma of rye and hops. Rye flavor is dominent-especially at the end. Nice hop flavor accompanies the rye and the malt. Aroma of hops gets better as itwarms- nice smell as you tip back the pint glass. Some lacing on the glass.

lucent copper, thin white head, highly effervescent.
aroma: caramel, citrus hops.
T1= caramel, rye.
T2= bitter citrus hops, co2.
T3= bitter hop oil, rye spiciness.
the rye spiciness is good, but leaves me desiring a richer and deeper malt character.

At a tasting, thanks David, small staying head, a little hazy medium orange colour, aroma of rose petals, mandarine, orange marmalade, flavopurs of orange, melon, herbs and biscuit, coupled with with a strong lasting bitterness, medium sweet bitter aftertase. A good but not overbearing IPA.

12 oz. bottle purchased at Steve’s Liquors in Madison, WI. Pours copper in color with an off-white head. Sweet malty aroma with some grassy hops. Perhaps the sweetness is from the rye? Good hoppy flavor but no rye detected in the taste. A solid IPA but nothing too exciting.

Pour is red amber body with a thin soapy head. Nose is vegetal and fruity hops with some rye and caramel malts. Interesting mouthfeel, somewhat dry finish but the rye kind of slowly sneaks in, giving a interesting kick at the end. Because of its uniqueness, I enjoyed this over the regular Bitter Woman.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2009 On tap at The Malt House. Not sure if it was the Malt House’s glassware but this beer smelled kinda funky, like a damp basement in a really old house. The hops seemed pretty subdued compared to other beers I recently had. The rye smooths out some of the abrasiveness you find in some IPAs but overall, I just didn’t care for it.

Courtesy fantomas23. Pours a dark amber-orange color with a thick and foamy off white head that shows good retention and leaves sheets of lacing behind. The aroma shows pine and orange citrus hops up front to go with the toasted caramel malt backbone. Hints of rye grains and spiciness are noticeable as well. The flavor follows and is quite bitter from the citrus and pine hops, but the sweet caramel and biscuity malts are there to balance things out. The rye is more pronounced in the flavor adding bold spiciness that seems to enhance the hop bitterness. Full bodied and smooth with good carbonation that leads to a lengthy bitter finish from all the hops. I like the flavor that the rye adds in this beer. Really nicely done ipa.

Caramel apple aroma. Clear amber in color with little head. Soft hops, slight citric, with a nice spicy rye bite. Not a mindblower, but real tasty. Liking it more.
