> My old time favorite.
Always my first choice when I can find it on tap. (Review is for draught at D&V Shorewood, WI. - Sep.2017. )
On the one hand, there is a lingering earthiness, counterbalanced by a light-weight hoppy bitterness on the other hand.
To me, 《 There's no better woman than BITTER WOMAN ☆ 》

Good looking beer. Rich amber, orange in color, extremely clear. Two fingers of sticky white foam with good retention and lacing. Aroma is heavy citrus, grapefruit and orange. Dank with mild notes of pine as well. Hops pop less on taste. Some pine and citrus. Big malty backbone. Body is medium, moderate carbonation, and a dry, bitter finish. Overall, a nice classic IPA. Citrus/pine forward, plenty of malt for balance, and a dry finish. Good brew.

One of those early beers that had the orange color going on. Clarity wasn't its strong suit. 3/5" white head. Aroma was very bitter, not the traditional lush dry hopping, this was all about bitterness and alpha acids instead of aroma of a soft fruit nature.

Bitter definitely is a valid descriptor here. Grapefruit bitterness. Caramel malt. Standard stuff, amped up bitterness. 70ibu? Felt heavier than the 5.75% abv quoted. Not hot, just seemed like a bigger beer than that.

Very bitter for sure, but smooth and still a strong malt presence - unique, wish we could get it.

Moderate head, a touch past one finger, off-white to eggshell colored, even surface, the lacing is more broad sheets than streaks, pretty good stickiness. Deep golden to close to amber colored liquid, noticeable swirl of tiny bubbles, virtually wall-to-wall. Intense nose of saline, green herbaceousness, pretzel dough, tar, earth, touch of pine sap, minimal fruit presence, some apricot or peach pits. Medium-bodied, creamy texture in spite of its overall hard nosed nature and general dryness. Tar, black tea leaf, dried oranges, there’s more pep in the pine sap but this is indeed one bitter beer. If allowed to warm there is some roundness in the peach, pineapple fruit. For as bitter as it is, does display nice balance and does not overplay its hand.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is crystal clear light orange colored beer with a medium sized off-white head. The aroma is full of hops and citrus, a great smell. The taste chock full of hops with a strong citrus blend. Overall, an outstanding beer.
