Tyranena makes Hop Whore...'nuff said. Scurvy is a near miss from a great brewery. poured into a pint a satisfyingly cloudy golden orange with a wispy head of thin foam and a long display of lace. The smell is of citrus but less distinct than advertised. As with many Tyranena offerings the hops dominate the flavor with pine and sharp spice striking first. The citrus flavor is faint and hints not at the flavorful zest, but the bitter white pith below. The brewer seems to have toned down the malt to make room for the orange, and this leads to a hugely imbalanced offering where the hops overrun everything, and not in a good way (said the hophead). A fine IPA with some good flavor, but not enough special "oomph" to justify inclusion in the Brewers Gone Wild" series.

Another gift from a friend that make an annual pilgrimage to WI.
A: A light cooper colored beer with an orange hue. Produces a good head stand on pour. The off-white head is made of cream bubbles with a decent retention time when given a somewhat aggressive pour.
S: A medium strength aroma of crystal malt and citrus hops. There is a moderate fruit ester and a faint diacetyl making me think the yeast is more English than American.
T: A medium-strong citrus hops flavor and a medium-strong hops bitterness along with a medium malt sweetness dominate. There is a far amount of orange esters that seem part hop part yeast derived. The balance is fairly bitter. The finish is off-dry with an aftertaste of oranges and hops bitterness.
M: A medium bodied beer with a medium-strong carbonation. Medium creaminess.
O: A decent IPA with a good balance of hops and malts hat isn't overly bitter, not that it would be bad thing. There
