Tangerines, oranges, cantaloupe, pine, dry barley and a bit of alcohol on the nose.

Called Bitter Woman for a reason, this is dry, bitter and astringent. The palate doesn't sense much fruit, like the nose, but more resiny Lupilin and pine needle. Some pithy grapefruit rind couples with a dry barley malt that at times seems biscuity. Not bad, and definitely bitter.

I found this beer to have a nice balance of malt and hoppy bitterness. Beautiful golden color as well. But the flavor profile with the hops is pretty one-sided, like Cascade, sticking straight out of the maltiness underneath. So it just stings and goes away.
