UPDATED: NOV 6, 2009 Absolutely wonderful full hop grapefriut aroma, amber orange color, nice head, full hop slightly sweetcitrus taste, best hop aftertaste ever. If your a true hophead , and could care less about any malt flavor this is your brew. An instant hit with anyone I get to try it. Has been responsible for many people getting off the macro beer wagon. If you can get to the Tyranena Brewery tasting room and try it there, its a 5.0 rating.

MMMMMM!! Now this is how I like an IPA..."kick in the mouth" bitter!!. When exhaling through my nose after a sip, I could smell the hops as if my nose was buried in the glass. The aroma is a glorious citrus/fruity/hoppy orgy...I havenít smelled an IPA this good in a while. A little lighter in color than most IPAís, but still a nice amber/copper color, and it has little specks floating from top to bottom that give it an otherwordly appearance. The flavor is, simply put, great. I am truly impressed with this one...definitely one of my top 10 IPAís.

Killer fresh beer on draft at Bodega Brew Pub downtown La Crosse, Wis. Served with a nice foamy off white head and some lace. Clear orangish amber color. Hoppy nose of course. Very fresh flavor. Good clean finish.

nice caramel color with a wonderful bitter taste at the end. The smell of hops sends tingles down my spine. My god I am in love with this Bitter Woman.

Dark honeyish chill haze yellowish/amber with an inch tall yellowish creamy colored fluffy head that takes a while to finely settle to a fine skim thats always present and leaves super sticky strings of lace. Smell is an incredibly nice and straight up piney resin, touching on some grapefruit and a nice caramel toasted background. Not quite as strong as I was hoping but quite solid and freshly so. Super smooth caramel toasty front that doesn't last cuz thats where the hops come floodin' in with very mild easy pine riddin' hops, resin filled, fresh, dried and sweet, amarillo abounds this batch of lovely easy handled hops that have a super crazy smoothness and bittering sourness with a touch of grapefruit rinds; one hell of a very smooth bitterness. Wow. SmoOOoth. Emphasis on the second and third "o". Solid feel throughout, smooth and nearly full from first sip to last and the finish makes for one fanatastic little gem of hop rendered sourness kissing on the lips with a grapefruit rinds and lime-like sourness. This stuff goes down so easy and smooth its quite amazing. No, its not quite a monster, but the overall smooth and easyness of this IPA puts it right up there with some of the top notchers. Super drinkable and enjoyable to the fullest.

Thanks to MIBRomeo for this one. Pours chill hazy deep copper with big, frothy off-white head. Aroma of luscius piney hops, big tropical fruit, citrus, caramel malt. Tastes piney and hoppy, piney, on the bitter side, with mid-palate caramel malt, fruit, and some black pepper. Complex, dense palate that evolves as it warms. This, as with every Tyranena beer Iíve yet had, is a world class example of its style. If I ever win Power Ball, Iím buying a mansion midway between Lake Mills and New Glarus, Wisconsin.

Nice deep copper color. Lots of carbonation with a big, frothy off-white head. Aroma is a full, earthy hop nose. Maybe a splash of Cascade in there too. Taste is definitely hoppy. A slight malt flavor at first is quickly outpaced by the citrusy, fruity hops. Definitely some Cascade in here, but not exclusively so. Finish is dry and bitter. A nicely done American style IPA.

Been waiting for this one for a while, and itís got one of my favorite labels. Bottle. Hoppy nose is just effusively fruity, pine and caramel come right to the fore. Translucent amber-orange with a sudsy beige head, but lasting lacing. Taste is strongly bitter, much more so than expected (straddles IPA/IIPA line), with resin played up and a touch of rubber glove astringency. Dry and bitter aftertaste for minutes. Caramel, grass, floral notes, lightly nutty, toffee and cookie dough - I love when IPAs get away from straight citrus, thereís such reward in depth. Full, creamy body, and the knowledge that its lived up to expectations.

Orange color with a beige head. Aroma of citrus and caramel. Taste of tangy citrus, long hoppy finish. Really good.
