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.

Hazy hazy deep orange, with a fading ivory head. Very bitter aroma; heavy grapefruit and floral hops, with a background of grass. Its a bitter smelling bouquet of hops! A huge foreshadowing of the taste to come. Taste is very crisp and bitter. Big bitterness, somewhat complex hop profile. But not without some strong malt backup--Im getting some toffee and earty bread combined. But it’s really not as assertive as the hops. It’s a big imbalanced bitter hop-slam. I can see how some people would enjoy this thing, but it’s not for me.

Can, at Patricks. A clear dark amber beer with a small, off-white head. Piney, slightly citrus-peel like aroma with a malty slightly caramel back. Mostly hoppy aroma, pine cones, some citrus and a healthy dose of bitterness. Malty base, a bit too sweet. Full body, nice carbonation level. Sweet finish with, luckily, a solid dose of bitterness. A nice one, but slightly sweeter than I prefer. 110205

(Can) Pours clear amber with an off-white head. The aroma is piny and citric up front alongside more friendly notes of white flowers and black currant. Dry, mild toasted malt, almost cracker-like. The flavor is light sweet, medium bitter and tiny acidic. Very well balanced. Citrus, pine, flowers and toast. The mouthfeel is soft and clean. Pine and resin lingers. Edium bodied.

StefanSD (2087) - Lakeside, California, USA - JAN 31, 2011
12 oz can courtesy of Dak. Pours a lightly hazy copper color with a sudsy off-white head that has good retention and ample lacing. The aroma is strong with pine resins and grapefruit. The flavor is similar to the aroma with grapefruit and pine set in a caramel malt base. The palate seems just a bit off, and tha carbonation is lively. The finish is short and dry. Overall: A very tasty IPA.

355 ml can. Clear copper golden body with a big off-white head that fades rather quick. Fantastic aroma of strong citrus like peaches, grapefruit and pine with caramel. Flavor is nice and fruity refreshing with a caramel malt base. Rally smooth and does actually not feels particular bitter at all. Very nice aroma and a fresh start, but a bit short on the aftertaste. A great thirst-quencher.
