Stickin' It to the Man, another of Tyranena's Brewers Gone Wild Series. Pours with a ruby body that becomes glowing orange when backlit. Very few carbonation bubbles creep through the slightly hazy body to the surface. A two finger off-white eggshell head formed on the pour falling to a half finger leaving sticky lacing on the way down.

This beer has a big sweet caramel nose. As a matter of fact the whole of this beer is layered in sweetness. The caramel begins things but are quickly overtaken by sweetened white grapefruit and orange. This beer smells like candy. The sweetness is there but not at all off putting.

Flavor begins with that big dose of caramel again. The malt hit flows effortlessly into sweetened grapefruit mid-palate but there's a little of that unsweetened grapefruit bitterness leading into the finish. Some floral hoppiness helps finish things off. Nicely done with a mild lingering sweetened bitterness.

Medium bodied with a velvety smooth mouthfeel. Sluggish carbonation leaves this beer alone to work it's magic, adding to that smoothness.

Not sure of the abv. in this one. I'm guessing in the area of 7%, but it is an easy one to put away. Enjoyable, refreshing and bitter enough to keep you wanting more.

Tyranena does it again. Do they make a bad beer? All their beers I've ever sampled have been excellent. Keep the Brewers Gone Wild Series coming guys cause I can't get enough.

Heavy hazed dirty bronzed brown color. Soft spongy capping of lightly yellowish foam sits briefly before slipping away to whole lotta lacing and a slight skim across the top of the liquid.

Soft and soggy wet pine aroma mixed gently with a resin sided toastyness and some oily hopped melony citrus.

Taste is deep and soft, not heavy or beefy; as the flavors are fairly broad and mediumishly bold with a softly yielding tone of very easy going citric tropical hoppyness and a toasty caramel malt backing.
The middle is the best area as the pine comes in and places itself along the walls and base of malts with some nice rendering of delicate oilyness, hoppy waxyness, and feathery pithyness of orange and grapefruit.

Feel is light at the front then gradually builds into a well-rounded medium tone and softly hopped oil girth. Fades ever so slowly into the finish with a slight pull into grapefruit bitterness and pine soured soggyness and a faint but present earthy dryness.

A pretty decent IPA thats been beefed up with some extra oompf. Not as good as the Hop Whore or Bitter Woman From Hell though. That's the brew I would side with over this.

A - Pours a clearn, darker amber colored body with tight bubbles rising along the sides. One finger tan head is thick and fluffy looking. Good retention and spotty lacing.

S - Grapefruit rind and tons of it. This smells a lot better than what I just had on tap a couple days ago. Big citrusy hops jump out of the glass. Some orange peel also present. Caramel malts are here, but hops dominate.

T - Starts of with light caramel and some strawberry sweetness. Quickly rolls into the hops. Starts with hoppy grapefruit and tangerine rinds. The hops then move from hoppy to bitter, blasting the tongue. Slightly bready maltiness comes in before it finishes with a bitter wash.

M - Medium bodied with sticky hop oils. Carbonation is a touch biting, but doesn't get in the way of enjoyment.

D - Another good Brewer's Gone Wild "Extra" IPA. I wish there was more of this around. I am going to have to go buy some more up.
