COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s Old Man Bitter

A mix of citrus and pine that will remind you of the time you went on a vision quest with your Native American cousin and you woke up in a pine grove full of grapefruit trees.

An American-style India Pale Ale with a deep golden-orange color. Bitter and hoppy, with a surprisingly smooth finish.

Modus Hoperandi, an IPA sitting at 6.8% ABV and 65 IBUs.

Taste of pine, resin, grapefruit, orange, a little passion fruit, some caramel, subtle toasted malts and slight spicy hops. Medium bodied and an oily texture.

LazyPyro (431) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2016
355ml can. Clear deep orange colour with a two finger slightly off-white head with fairly good retention. Aroma is really hoppy, piney, grapefruit, citrus, zest. Taste like the aroma is very hoppy and piney, lots of citrus and grapefruit, sweet malt, caramel. Quite a bitter finish and a touch of alcohol. This is a great IPA.

woomThomas12 (178) - Falkenberg, SWEDEN - MAY 13, 2016
The beer is ready to go in the bright red color. The foam is white with small bubbles. The foam disappears leisurely quickly and leave fine traces. Aromas of tropical fruit and hops. A little malt, citrus, spicy pine and orange peel and light caramel. Small smells of bread. The flavors go in hops and bitterness with bitterness a bit thin. Tropical fruits where lemon come first, followed by a little orange. Some malt, a little earthy and sweet tones. Lightly toasted and a little caramel. Good roundness with medium long finish that does not have too much hops or bitterness. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Dry surface, small roughness. The beer is not a real hop bomb with high bitterness. It has a good round balance that will not be too much.
