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.

Dark rusty orange colour. Piney hops and citrus fruits in the aroma. The flavour has juicy and bittersweet fruity tones but also some caramelly, malts too. Smooth.

Interesting try in the "Black sheep" in Dublin. Not as extaordinary as "Of foam and fury" but carries an interesting mixture of hoppinnes and sweetness. The best part about it is the after taste - very balanced so u can carry on for long with this one.

Deep rich color with a good balance of bitterness that fills your palate with just enough grapefruit citrus and a dry smoothness on the front of the tongue.

Can at Shuga’s. Tastes like nutty malt, hop resin, pine hops, and some grapefruit. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like strong pine and light grapefruit hops

Tap at Falling rock. Copper color and a very thick, lacing head. Bitterr, some pine. Not much fruit at all but more malt than many others. Good beer.

Everybody is drinking cans of this wonderful IPA, and I found what might be the only bottle in the world, along with the other one I got I guess. Oh well, I’m one of THOSE who doesn’t see the real difference, besides the fact that drinking a beer straight out of a can both looks cool, and straight up is cool. 12 oz bottle poured. Purchased at Mollys in Denver. Thanks me!! Pours a reddish copper color with a lasting sticky foam head and lacing. This IPA is cool. This IPA starts the mosh pit. Creamy body with a semi rich citrus aroma and flavor. If an IPA is highlighted with a big grapefruit quality, then I’m for it. This has got the weight I need. This IPA is so badass that if I could, I’d buy it a beer. This is all the stupid shit I come up with when I am lost in enjoyment of a beer that I am drinking. One of the best IPAs I’ve ever had.

Nocturne (1594) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2015
Keg at Euston Tap, London. Hazy amber shade. Thin head. Hops come through dank, earthy, jammy. Lots of hedgerow fruits. There’s almost a dash of old world English bitter to this. Kiss of sweetness before a long bitterness. I really like how unique this seems compared to most modern IPAs.

From can on board Fridtjofen 15.09.15. Golden orange. White head and lacing. Fine aroma of various citrus, Sevilla marmalade and fresh pine. Similar taste, balanced with pale malt and lots of citrus bitterness
