Ernest (6183) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 23, 2006
Bottle, hopscotch post-GABF party 2006. Body is medium to dark amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (grapefruit, resin, apricot). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Surprisingly tame, certainly not a hop-bomb, which was the most notable aspect based on the style. Seemed more like an APA, really...which is not a bad thing for me; I was glad the hops werenít overwhelming. But with little else of interest, it didnít end up being very exciting.

From a bottle purchased in Madison, WI. A dark amber body is topped with a slightly yellowish head. The aroma is rich with lots of grapefruit, toast and some pine hints. There is also some caramel. Nicely balanced. The taste has lots of toffee with some grapefruit in the finish. There is a lot of iced tea in teh finish. A nicely balanced bitter IIPA. Another winner from Tyranena.

Terminus (3231) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - OCT 19, 2006
bottle-pours dark clear orange with a froathy off-white head with lots of rocky carbonation. nice looking brew! nose is huge citric hop dominated with notes of mint, woodsy, and light spice. lots of tangerine, mangos and some pine. highly sweet as well. balanced flavors dominated by citric hops, light caramel malt with a balanced bitter finish. really balanced here. not overly sweet with enough pine on the finish to tighten it up. nice hop burbs. I havent had a IIPA this good in quite some time.

Thanks to footbalm for this beauty. It pours a clear bronze color with a 1" (2,5cm) dirty white head. You are immediately greeted w/ a bullwinklian arooma of hops. The flavor, not surprisingly, is hoppy, but very well crafted

12oz bottle via trade with milwcu29 - Thanks Chris! - Pours nice dark amber with a pretty good sized offwhite head that stayed pretty well.. Laces pretty good as well. This whore is soaked with hops baby.. Beautiful aroma of pine, grapefruit, and some floral notes as well.. I tell you I tried hard to pick up malt in this nose and I couldnít find it behind the hops. Flavor is quite bitter on the tongue too but there are definite pineapple and tropical notes there too and if you try hard enough you can find some caramel malts too. Good oily texture and fair carbonation with a nice bitter dry finish. This one is a winner.. Nice brew!

JK (4400) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - OCT 19, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2006 It is a very good aroma. Very floral with dying flowers. Light red, and not very much carbonation. The head actually looked a small and I thought it might be under-carbonated or not sealed very well, but after pouring all of the beer into the glass there is an inch of off white foam and a thin layer stays on the beer until the end. But clear and I canít see any sediment. Flavor is pure hops. There is some citrus, but mostly pleasant, flowery and bitter with a light hop burn on my tongue. If they continue making beers like this they are going to get a positive name for themselves. Extra point for the very reasonable price of $6/4 pack. Very West Coast and possibly the most hops I have had in a bottled beer from Wisconsin.

nolankowal (926) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 18, 2006
Big thanks go to northerntimber for this one, thanks again! Pours a transparent orange-red with yellowish-tan head. Big aroma of pine, citrus, crazy floral hops all over with some underlying bready malt. Bittersweet flavor, pine and bready malt and some booze. Solid body, the carbonation seems a bit thin...sweet tropical fruit in the front, malt and warming booze in the middle with the hop punch torwards the end that lasts through the long finish. Pretty damn good stuff though I wouldíve enjoyed a bit more carboantion and perhaps a bit more balance.

twindadplus2 (590) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 17, 2006
Dark amber with a small off white head that manages to hang around for a bit. Aroma is heavy with floral hops, sweet fruit and pine. Flavor is a blast of sweet and sour citrus, pine and a dry, resiny tone throughout. Somehow the malt actually makes itself heard through all of this and itís a nice balance. The floral, pine finish lingers for an incredibly long time. Smooth, slippery and full bodied on the palate. This is definitely the best one so far in the brewers gone wild series. Tyranena is rappidly becomiing my favorite local brewer (well, maybe itís a tie with New Glarus).

UPDATED: OCT 31, 2006 I love this Whore!!! Pours a dark clean amber with a faint head. Aroma is quite piney. Flavor is a awesome hops & dry pine with hints of grapefruit. NIce and bitter. Just like a Whore should be.

OldGrowth (2645) - North Carolina, USA - OCT 17, 2006
Bottle, from trade with Captain Cougar. Great nose. Sweet. Perfumey & fruity. Apricot, pine, orange, peach, tangerine all come to mind Clean brownish orange color, ok head, good lace. Bitter flavor, now the grapefruit kicks in while the rest of the aroma things are in the bckground. Little medicine/metllic. Little toasted grain. Caramel / toffee too. Medium body, viscous creamy mouthfeel, bitter finish. Tasty, I got a good size difference between the aroma & flavor as opposed to the smells the same tastes the same kind of IIPAís that are out there. Thnks Capt.
