COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bitter Woman IPA is our Wisconsin variation of an India Pale Ale. This beer is intensely bitter with a mighty hop flavor and aroma.

aracauna (3084) - Georgia, USA - SEP 23, 2004
Clear peachy-gold-amber body with a dense white foam head. Very pleasant aroma. Apricot and orange fruitiness melds nicely with citric and floral hops. The flavor is soft and relatively low in bitterness, despite a fairly large hop flavor. The malt has a biscuit-like quality that makes for a tasty little beer. I likes and Iím glad I decided to pull this one to drink after a lousy day.

FlacoAlto (3800) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 30, 2004
Pours an absolutely brilliantly clear copper-gold color and is topped by a fully tan head that quickly disappears. The aroma is at first citrusy, but then takes a right turn and develops some strong toasty biscuit notes, the nose then finishes with a dank herbal hop note. The beer is lightly sweet up front with a complimenting citrus hop note. It is very light on the palate, in fact it seems this beer has been filtered a bit too much. There is also this really weird funky note here, that I canít quite place, and is not really all that pleasant. The finish is moderately bittered for an IPA. Overall a bit disappointing, I was expecting a bit more from this beer, though it is enjoyable enough and I will definitely have this again.

Sickboy282 (1115) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 9, 2004
Pours a light golden amber with aromas of honey, and slightly flowery. Semi-full bodied with very mellow hop profile.

jewedekind (450) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 1, 2004
On tap at brewery. Slightly cloudy dark yellow-orange or copper with a thin off-white head. Aroma of citrus & pine. Intensely bitter as advertised, heavy spruce pine and acidity. No balance or malt character. Bitter, yes. Good beer, NO. I think it is better in the bottle.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - JUL 31, 2004
12oz Bottled 10Jun04 Pours a clear copper color with a head comprised of miniscule bubbles that settles down to a thin head. Aroma is hoppy with citrus, fruit, dough and yeast notes. Flavor is an even bitterness that at first seems as though may be more powerful than it actually turns out. Some good hop flavors but also slightly metallic. Body is medium and well carbonated. Leaves a nice webbing of lace around the glass. Overall a decent IPA but nothing outstanding.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 19, 2004
12 oz bottle. Clear light copper/dark gold. Medium decaying head. Big, big grapefruit acid in the nose, bit of honey backing it up. Toasty, slightly oaky in the body, much citrus and pine, great body supportive of the full bitter flavor yet supple enough to be highly drinkable. Hard not to guzzle this, one of the better "regular" IPAs Iíve had lately.

Silphium (3167) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 5, 2004
Pours hazy copper with a thin off-white head. Classic pine/grapefruit hops aroma is accompanied by detergent and toasty malt, and beckons for a sip...which I oblige, and find a pretty thin-bodied beer that still manages to carry a nice piney/grapefruity hops punch, along with just enough biscuity malt to keep this fan of barley content. Bitter aftertaste.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 1, 2004
Brewtopia 2004: Cloudy orange with some small chunks under a small with head. Grapefruit aroma with a bit of grass, full oily mouthfeel, starts and ends bitter.

(Brewtopia bottle courtesy of DavidP) Hazy golden body with small off-white head. Aroma is mild sweet, floral, orange, toasted. Taste is mild sweet, grapefruit/herbal, orange, some mint. Finish is medium intensity grapefruit. Light-medium body.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - JUN 20, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2004 Clear copper color with small to medium sized head. Taste had a bit of a chalky, powder consistancy. Nice hop flavor and aroma. Pine and grapefruit was also nicely mixed in to make this very balanced and an above average IPA.
