Drove to WI just to find this beer. 12 oz bottle, bottled on 07SEP06, poured into a pint glass
Apours clear copper orange with a 1 inch tan fluffy head that lasts several minutes before collapsing into a cloud like blob, lacing is thick and abundant. A beautiful beer.
SHops a plenty. Pine citrus, floral, perfume aromas all mixed together and very strong. Just a hint of sweetness lingers
TWonderful. A hop heads dream, Pine, citrus and floral flavors are dominate with a hint of sweetness, just like the smell. Excellent
Msharp and maybe a bit raw, medium bodied, perfect carbonation
DGreat. I wish I would have bought more 4 packs of this. I need to make a return trip to WI for sure.

Appearance - Cloudy. Medium reddish-brown. Thin, quickly dissipating off-white head.
Smell - Hops prominent. Faint barleywine-like maltiness present.
Taste - Barleywine-like malt flavor quickly cut by strong hoppy bitterness. Difficult to describe, but tasty to drink.
Mouthfeel - Full.
Drinkability - Very interesting beer and style. Repays the thought one puts into drinking.

A big thank you to Nlmartin for this one!
Pour is autumn leaves ablaze in crimson fire. Ok yeah, that was bit much but the orange body is something to lust after in terms of IPA speak.
Initially the nose was dominated by pine and grapefruit but as it warms the malt takes center stage.
Taste is gooey sticky cloying hops. Pine and grapefruit elbow their way forward with caramel and hints of toffee bringing up the rear. Finish is extremely bitter and lemony, like lemon zest. To be 100 percent honest this is one fine beer, much akin to something we on the west coast would be accustomed to.
Mouth is wonderful, absolutely full and rich. Decadent would be the term to sum this up.
I could reach for this almost every time I wanted a double IPA. It's really that good.

Look: Deep copper and brilliantly clear; rays of sunset orange bounce around when held up to the light.
Smell: Fragrant, floral, perfume just as described on the label. Hints of melon and caramelized sugars.
Taste: Jarred, sticky, sweet papaya and fresh pine highlight this one. A nice resinous bite follows through to leave a clean finish. The floral aromas linger, enticing you towards another sip. This is a special beer. Must buy more.

Served a little too cold with a huge, cream-colored, thick, foamy,frothy, billowy head and loads of lace. Color is a clear deep copper amber. Aroma is mild for me, but my snooter doesn't work so well. What I could whiff was hop and malt. Flavor's like nose but with giant hop that has enough malt to compliment and excellent carbonic tang. Even though it's too cold body/carboantion are perfect. Finish is like flavor, taperes slow and is so drinkable.

im new to reviewing, but ima give it a shot
Hop Whore poured from bottle into an Founders Imperial pint glass. Pours a nice looking copper with a small head. Hops, hops and more hops in the nose, along with some citrus notes as well. The taste is all hops up front. Bitter, but not overly bitter. Finishes really nicely. Easy to drink and enjoyable as well. I really enjoy this beer.

Pours a rich amber/orange color with about a half inch of head. Great nose, full of hops. Looking forward to this beer. Tastes just like it smells, very hoppy throughout. Good lasting flavor that lasts a long time. Medium body feel. Very drinkable beer. I really enjoyed this one. Wish it was a little cheaper, but I'll definitely be buying it again regardless.

Picked up a 4-pack at Riley's here in Madison. Excited for the next in the Brewer's Gone Wild Series.
Pour: a beautiful auburn-copper with active carbonation streams feading a creamy tan head with thick, soapy lacing. A great looking beer.
Nose: Wow, a real Dreadnaught clone here. Intense grapefruit and dripping resinous pine hops, golden syrup, apricot nectar and caramel malts. Mmm Mmmmm, bitch.
Taste: Woo-iee. A lady of the hops indeed. This is what the Bitter Woman From Hell wishes it was. Much more complexity in both hops and malt profiles. Dripping grapefruit, resinous pine, herbal bitterness, apricot nectar, citrus peel, and sweet vanilla/caramel malts. Hint of booze in the finish.
Feel: light syrup, tickling carbonation. Smooth body.
Drinkability/Overall: There really are some valid comparisons with Dreadnaught in here (which I have had a few bombers of this months and on-tap at the Great Taste). This stuff has loads of complexity and less noticeable booze than the D'naught and at $7 a 4-pack compared to $11 a bomber makes me want to load up on this before it disappears.

12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass.
A - Amber/copper colored with a nice white head and sticky lacing. Good amount of carbonation bubbles floating up.
S - Fresh hops, pine, tangerine, caramel, strong malts. Beautiful! I wish I could find this smell in a candle, I'd burn it all day!
T - Fresh citrus (grapefruit/tangerine mix) up front with delicious malts. Definitely taste the fresh hops, but they're not overbearing as most Imperial IPA's tend to be. Definitely taste the caramel in the background. Slightly sweet/slightly bitter taste that lingers long after you've taken a drink. Amazing!
M - A heavier medium body with an excellent balance of carbonation. A dry finish, but what a great aftertaste!
O - Excellent drinkability. I'd have to say that this is my favorite Imperial IPA by far. Probably my favorite IPA overall. Perhaps one day Tyranena will make this year round, as it is superior to their Bitter Woman and Scury IPA's. Another winner for the Tyranena Brewers Gone Wild series!

Properly imperial styled dark amber hazy body. Hosts a solid inch of light tan head with excellent retention. A wall of lace is left as it fades. Nose is very soft but does show a nice balance between sweet syrupy hops and rich malt with a bit of minerals. With first sip the hop presence is initially juicey with a bit of citrus sweetness. With following sips the middle of the palate yeilds more of a piney mineral based bitter feel to the hops. There is a nice but subtle malt balance throughout the palate that helps to make this a very creamy brew. Mouthfeel is on the sweet and creamy side with some attractive bitter feel. Sensationably drinkable.

Drank this at Stumelagram IX
this brew pours up a translucent copper color with a quickly fading white head. the nose is grapefruit, honey, floral hops, tree sap, some mint leaves. The taste is amazingly enough the same as the delicious aroma. A smooth, very clean beer, full bodied, low carbo. Damn I love the BGW series!
