It has been a while since I had a bottle of Scurvy by Tyranena Brewing Company. It was released as part of Tyranena’s “Brewer’s Gone Wild!” series back in 2009. I have tried to pick up as many in that series as possible and have seen those beers as one off’s. I know a few have been repeated but guess I never knew that they decided to go year round. Obviously they don’t run their release schedule through me. Before I continue, is it me or has Tyranena slowed on the releases of aforementioned series?
The aroma is king and hop forward. Lots of citrus/grapefruit that straightens out the hairs of my nose. A caramel backbone holds up ever so slightly. The taste follows, heaping on the bitterness in the finish. According to my notes that because I had the beer too cold. I can see that as I had it outside for an hour in 20 degree temperatures; it was damn cold. The one thing I don’t remember in the beer is the amount of debris free floating in the glass.
Scurvy still satisfies the hop desires in me. Now that I know it is year round, I will partake more often. Enjoy!
