Beer 257/365 – Tyranena Scurvy Ipa

Tyranena Scurvy Ipa

Style: American IPA

ABV: 6.5%

Purchased at: Sent as an extra in a trade.

What makes this beer different: Nice and citrusy, but the pine knocks it down a few notches for me.

Will I be drinking this again: They don’t sell in PA, but not so sure I would trade for this.

Grade: B+

7/23/2010: Apologies for the crappy picture. The only pint glass I had at the time has a huge label on the front of it, but it blocked out a lot of the light coming through. Just look at the bottom part of the glass for an idea of what the color should look like.

Scurvy doesn’t smell nearly as potent as most IPA’s do, only slighty hoppy. The flavor though was a bit more hoppy, a lot of citrus hops, and a nice dose of piney hops (my least favorite kind). You can also taste the orange added a little bit, with a lot of caramel malt. Overall Tyranena Scurvy is on the maltier end of the IPA spectrum, but the pine hop flavor knocks it down a bit for me.

Picture of the day: Do not press this button.

  1. Agree completely about the piney hops. Just not my favorite at all. Otherwise, it sounded interesting.

    • Yeah it wasn’t enough to kill it for me, but enough to knock it down a peg.
