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.

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2014 Very nice color with good head for being an IPA, smell hops and freshness and taste very hoppy too. Nice bitter aftertaste. One of my all time favorite IPAs.

i sometimes wonder "what did the 1st india pale ale taste like when it came ashore and the keg was tapped, there, overseas and who got the 1st tankards swallow and what was the reaction?" imagine. my guess is that this can isn’t even close to how it tasted there, india-way, because i like it cold. and cold it is and good it is, too. "We use the finest Malt, Hops, Yeast, Water and Love". (an ingredient left off of the reinheitsgebot?) cold.

35,5cl can from Systembolaget, Sälen. Pours clear amber with an off-white head. Hoppy aroma with moderate pine, some fruity notes, citrus, malt and caramel. Medium sweet with a fairly bitter finish. Well balanced and pleasant to drink.

Gyllen brun med tynt hvitt skum. Utpreget lukt av malt og humle, sitrus og frukt. Mye kullsyre og futt. Fruktig/syrlig smak med flott ettersmak.

Really great for a really bitter IPA! Incredibly, shockingly smooth. Low carb. Sweet, floral, piney, citrus-esque hopping. Very hoppy. Very good.

On tap at the Black Heart, Camden Town, London on 23rd February 2014. Copper with diminishing off-white foam. Gorgeous tangerine and grapefruit aroma with touch of lemongrass. Rich grapefruit, tangerine and bitter peel in-mouth, and a bitter, fruity citric finish. Plenty of body and a zingy mouthfeel. A superb pint!

Pours a thick, white head that laces down the glass as you drink. Color is dark amber. Clarity good. Aroma is malty with strong American hop - piney and citrusy smell. Taste is floral - hoppy up front and fades to piney hops at the finish with a strong malt backbone throughout. Some nuttiness detected in the malt but hard to find under all the hops. Bitterness is at a good level and not overwhelmingly resinous. Mouthfeel is thick but not so much that you don’t want another taste.

Finn (3759) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 17, 2014
Boks 0,355l fra Systembolaget Kiruna. Drukket hjemme 25 Mai 13. Mørk gyldenbrun. Middels høyt skum som varer en stund. Litt lacing. Aroma av plommer & annen frukt. Smaken det samme. Blir fort tørr & bitter med en lang ettersmak.

Burk från SB. Mycket fin brandgul färg med enfingerskrona. Doftar fantastiskt av humle, grapefrukt och blöt barrskog. Rund och frisk smak med en fin kvardröjande beska. Ny favorit!
