COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

THE NAME:
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!

Pours a lovely cloudy amber/orange. Thin white head. Appears to be unfiltered. Massive amounts of grapefruit and citrus exploding on the nose. Some pine for sure and you can just smell the tart bitterness wafting off of this one. On the palate a medium mouth feel, with a generous amount of citrus. A light finish of orange peel. Overall this is a very high quality IPA and has a uniqueness going for it that I have not previously experienced in many IPAs. Great Lakes you have a definite winner on your hands with this one.

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.

UPDATED: APR 9, 2014 purchased at LCBO in a 650ml bottle. Very good IPA. Bitter with lots of grapefruit tastes. If there was a way to balance it out a little bit more this could be a top IPA, but none the less still very good.
