TORONTO, ON – Just under a year after it had a brief LCBO appearance as part of Tank Ten limited edition series, Great Lakes Brewery has announced that My Bitter Wife IPA is returning this week as an annual seasonal brand.
Named in honour of radical temperance advocate Carrie Nation and featuring a caricature of her and her infamous axe on the label, My Bitter Wife is a 7% abv and 88 IBU ale that is described as follows:
Deep gold in colour with incredible aromas of citrus, tropical fruits and mango, My Bitter Wife is an IPA for the serious hop-heads out there. Full bodied, subtle malt notes with a pleasant and balanced bitterness obtained using some Simcoe, Columbus and Centennial hops, it finishes dry with a lingering hop presence that leaves you wanting more. My Bitter Wife will be sure to awaken your senses with each sip.
My Bitter Wife IPA will be released tomorrow (Tuesday March 25th) at the GLB retail store, with a roll-out to select LCBO locations across Ontario to follow soon. It will retail for $5.95 per 650 ml bottle, and replaces the discontinued Orange Peel Ale as the Spring installment in the Great Lakes seasonal rotation.
