Bitter Woman From Hell

Tyranena Brewing Company
Lake Mills, WI

Style: Imperial/Double IPA

Eddie’s Rating:

Pair With:
This big, bad bitch is a redhead. OK, maybe we’ll call her a “deep amber.” Like all worthy women, she’s got a good head on her shoulders, but nothing all that big or strong. (Breaking character for a moment here, even long after the pour there’s bubbles or yeast or something suspended in the beer. Call me crazy but it almost resembles … chill haze. Hmmmm.) Her perfume is flowery, even a little tart, powerful enough that you can damn well smell it from across the room. And I ain’t ashamed to say it drives me a little wild every time I catch a whiff. Yeah, she’s bitter, but I’ll never, ever call her harsh. But for every bit of bitterness (some folks call ’em units), there’s some wonderful sweetness in this vivacious, not-so-full-bodied gal. They say behind every good man you’ll find a great woman, and I’ve always liked my women bitter.
