    Pours a clear dark golden color with a thin half inch creamy white head. The head settles out quickly leaving a thin layer of creamy white foam resting on top. Lots of thick lacing sheets the sides of the glass.

    The aroma has a fairly bold caramel malt with a nicely balanced citrus scent blending in. Some musty earthy scents are noticeable as well.

    The taste follows the aroma with a sweet caramel malt blending into an earthy hop flavor. The earthy hops continue on into the finish with a nice orange citrus flavor joining near the end. A bitterness in the finish that offsets the sweet malts and works nicely with the citrus notes.

    Medium body with light carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel with a slight oiliness on the palate. Slightly dry on the finish.

    Another enjoyable beer from Tyranena brewing. An IPA with a very distinct earthy flavor that is well crafted and balanced nicely with malts and citrus. A refreshing beer to enjoy after mowing the lawn or burying your loot. Try one!

  • Pours clear with three fingers of fluffy white foam. Good retention with some lacing throughout.

    Some caramel malt was hiding behind citrus from the orange and grapefruit hops in the aroma. I also pick up some earthy almost musty aroma.

    Flavor starts off with the caramel, sweet malt, which then is followed by the earthiness that I found in the aroma. Finishes with some bitterness but hidden underneath is a little orange flavor that sticks its head out. Note: if you drink this one too cold, it is very bitter. Give it a chance to warm up and enjoy a much smoother beer.

    Mild carbonation with a medium body. This one finishes a little creamy - not much but enough to let you know it is there. This is a crisp and refreshing beer that is easily enjoyed with some humidty.

    I like IPAs and Scurvy fits up there nicely with any other American IPA. Tyranena beers are quickly becoming one of my favorite. Enjoy!
