Bitter Woman from Hell's main body was a light orange but a more golden around the edges. Big 2+ finger creamy billowy head. Lacing is very sticky and lasts throughout the drink. It looks pretty good except it's FULL of big particles floating throughout. I think this takes away from the appearance. It looks like it'd be clear except for the chunks. It looks like pulp floating in there.

The smell is big on this beer. Tons of sweetened grapefruit. Must be where the pulp came from...There's also a little dampness or mustyness coming through at the end.

The taste is like taking a bite of grapefruit with some sugar sprinkled on top which is the main flavor coming through. It's followed by a little earthyness into a assertive bitterness that pleasently lingers.

The mouthfeel is good. Coats the mouth like it should. Not exceptional but good.

I'm going to drink a few of these tonight. It's a good drinker that leaves you wanting more.

Overal it's a good beer from Tyranena. I have just recently been introduced to their beers and the few I've tried have all been good.

clearish ambery brown liquid, bestowed upon myself and the Monk while engaging in bottling some homebrew, looks good thus far, a solid color for any IPA, but the pour is what sets this apart from others as the head grows and gains a substantial girth every so quickly building to a towering head of whiteness and fluffy foam. Once the top is there, it stays there, hardly moving for a long while before it finally fades down to a large, thick fluffy coating on top always present and leaves thick patchy and stringy lace.

Aroma is heavenly perfumed with a super nice floral pine, budding spring needles of spruce and cedar. Amarillo hops in a lovely sweet tone within, super fresh, crispened, and clean. A terrific load of hops, floral and lightly resin filled with a bit of dried smokeyness of burnt leaves. An enticing hop nose that you can lose yourself in, wonderful!

Taste is wildly smooth with a clean, crisp bitterness in the amarillo profile of hops with a very nice mellowing grab of floral pine and lovely high sweetness and citrusy resin. Malts in the background with lightly toasted caramel-like biscuity malts helping add profound layers to the hop levels and keeping a good balance. Complexingly simple in its feel, very smooth and quite full building ever so gradually in bittering sweetness leading to complexing dried variants of wood, smoke and leaves, bouncing around with floral and lightly herbal notes. Finish lingers both on the palate and the lips with a piney resin sweetness and sourness. It is the morning after and I still have the lingering tastes on my lips and throat. Whether thats a good thing or not...well its not in the fashion of regurgitation so I guess thats a good thing.
"A long, hot shower does little to erase her from your mind." I can see how the shower thing comes into play cuz it didn't help get rid of any afterthoughts/tastes.

Alot more nose then the regular Bitter Woman, but nearly the same in every aspect in its mellowing character. More of a hop complexity in flavor, length, and feel. Goes down just as smooth if not better, a fine-dandy IPA and I thank jeffboo greatly for the opportunity to drink it down. Yum!

Poured vigorously into pint glass.

A - Nice, clean amber color. Vigorous pour resulted in a big head which is now about one finger and beige in color.

S - Hoppy bitter goodness.

T - Drinks clean with tons and tons of piney hops. Not really balanced, but I don't think it is supposed to be. Hop lovers delight.

M - Oily hops, almost thick.

D - Big drinker for hop heads only, which I am.

The pour is pretty good, a murky medium amber that forms into a nice sized foam head that lasts quite a while. Smell is pretty, meh. Slight alcohol, and hops sent, but not much for an IPA. Taste is pretty good, would be great if it was a regular pale ale. A solid brew, but a little under the standards of a IPA.
