Beautiful color with a healthy light cream colored head. Fine bubbles continuously carbonate and a thin lacing remains behind in the glass.
Relatively light on the aroma. Some grassy hops underlies well balanced malt. Nothing overpowering, but also not really enough to spark my interest.
On the palate, the hops really shine. Bright hop flavor in general runs the circuit from beginning to end. A strong hit of bitterness appears at the beginning of a sip. This doesn't linger in the middle, where a solidly dry malt backbone interestingly balances out the brew evenly from the middle of a sip until the end. A very clean finish both cleanses the palate with solid bitterness but noticeable hop flavor appears at the end as well.
Maybe it's the name, maybe it's just a damn good beer, but I find myself grabbing a sixer of the Bitter Woman more and more with each passing year. On some sips, it's a little out of whack, but one or two sips later, things fall back into place. In that sense, it takes a little more time for me to get the full perspective. Beers like this are fun to review and drink, not only because they taste good but they keep dragging me into more and more sips trying to figure-out everything that I like about them. Very well done and well worth the price.

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!
