> 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. )
One 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.

Tastes like Old Speckled Hen. Creamy caramel grassy hops, not my favorite
