I've always loved the name and artwork of Tyranena Bitter Woman. I hadn't had this brew in years so I was excited to revisit it now that my beer intelligence has grown. Very inviting clean bright amber pour. The taste was not as bitter as I remember it....not anymore hoppy and bitter than most IPA's. Great blend of pine, hops, orange, and lemon. My only problem is the sweetness actually overpowers the hops.
Nevertheless, a smooth, creamy well crafted IPA.

3.29/5 rDev -15%

Appearance: burnt orange color. Slightly cloudy body. Finger and a half of head on the pour which settled in but was present while drinking. Sticky lacing left behind at each level. Average active carbonation for the style.
Smell: Airy biscuity malt backbone hits the nose first. Some light tropical fruits pop up on the body but are stifled by substantial bitter pine. Caramelized malt is present and well integrated throughout. Accents of pineapple, kiwi, and peppery spices round this one out.
Taste: Mixed front on some medium bodied pine, light tropical fruits, and chewy caramel malt. These flavors are non-desrcript and nothing really pull the drinker in. An above average malt thickness takes over on the body and finish. Light lingering pine is felt on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Sweet malts, light to medium bodied lingering pine throughout. Carbonation fits the mission for this brew.
Overall: An easy going, malt forward IPA. Light fruits are picked up but hop profile comes off with more of a piney bitterness. Good starter IPA for an inexperienced drinker.
