Deep gold in colour with incredible aromas of citrus, tropical fruits and mango, My Bitter Wife is an IPA for the serious hop-heads out there. Full bodied, subtle malt notes with a pleasant and balanced bitterness obtained using some Simcoe, Columbus and Centennial hops, it finishes dry with a lingering hop presence that leaves you wanting more. My Bitter Wife will be sure to awaken your senses with each sip.

Carrie Nation was a nearly unstoppable force behind the temperance movement. She fought a long and hard battle, hacking at the legs of libation. My Bitter Wife is our tribute to her!

GlennHendry (372) - OSHAWA, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 29, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2016 Smells like grapefruit/mango heaven. Tastes more of the same, with orange zest and some pine thrown in for good measure.. Bright and bitter at the same time. Fantastic beer from a fantastic brewery.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2016
650ml bottle. Orange-copper in colour with a large and long lasting off white head, excellent lacing. The aroma is of pine, orange peels, grapefruit with some caramel malt sweetness. The flavour is quite hoppy, lots of grapefruit and oranges, some caramel malt sweetness. Highly bitter mouthfeel, medium body, high carbonation. Finishes long, hoppy. A well balanced and very drinkable IPA.

lesifflebiere (1788) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 14, 2014
Une bire un peu trouble, avec une mousse assez rare, et un nez de houblons tropicaux plutt copieux, le tout formant un breuvage la texture mi-paisse. La bouche est amre souhait, mais assez ronde de ses malts, et la facture classique lui russit bien. Une IPA classer au rayon des dj vus donc, mais superbement efficace, une des meilleures sur le march canadien dans sa forme actuelle.

UXO (1743) - CANADA - SEP 10, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy pale amber with one finger of tight white head diminishing gradually to a thick cap and well-defined lacing. Nose is pine, citrus, tropical fruit, pale malt. Taste is hoppy bitter with just a little supporting malt sweetness. Medium to full body, moderate sustained carbonation, and a strongly bitter, dry finish. A decent hop-forward A/IPA that comes quite close to being a DIPA. The malt is well-balanced, albeit to a lower malt / higher hop character. The higher ABV is quite well-integrated as well. The bitterness has a slight harshness, though, particularly on the finish, that prevents a higher score.

Tap at Loose Moose, Toronto 05/0714. Pours a hazy orange with a white head. Lovely aroma - slight dank veggie hoppiness with some overripe trop fruit. Medium body, medium carbonation. Some caramel, but not too sweet - theres pine, light veg, light orange, some wood... Good.
