Located just east of Madison is Lake Mills which is home to Tyranena Brewing. With over 50 different recipes, their IPA named Bitter Woman is one of their most noteworthy. This is a must see brewery if you are already in the area visiting Capital, Ale Asylum, Vintage, or any of the Great Danes.
It pours a golden, amber color with a decent foamy head. The scent is rather simple but contains hops. It is what it is, simple yet good. Personally I like a strong hoppy smell with my IPA’s but it’s not required for a good tasting brew.
At the first sip you would find it hard to believe that this in an IPA but as the taste progresses, most of the bitterness comes from the after taste. The texture is smooth and invites one sip after another. Other than hops, you get hints of toasted malts and some caramel. It finishes with a dry, chalky after taste.
This is one of the backbone products that Tyranena offers year round. I remember sales on this use to be insane on this product and in the last year or two it has slowed down a bit. Certainly a unique tasting IPA with a smooth ale beginning and a bitter IPA finish. You can’t say you are a Tyranena fan without trying a Bitter Woman.

A solid IPA. Looks fantastic with a rocky head that leaves lacing as the beer is sipped. A more subtle and mildly grapefruity hop aroma than one might expect. The first sip is delicious; toasted malts and spicy, fruity hops mix wonderfully together. Not much of a middle to it, but a long, tantalizing dry and bitter finish enhances drinkability. If there were ever such a thing is a sessionable IPA, this would be it. Delicious!
