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.

Bottle. Orange colour with a medium-sized off-white head. Hoppy aroma with notes of grapefruit, orange and some caramel malt. Flavour is also quite hoppy with grapefruit, orange, pine and caramel malt. Aftertaste is dry and bitter.

Palme (3591) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 10, 2011
0.355l can @ Henrik, Bergen. Pours a clear orange body with a small off-white head. Aroma is mildly fruity, peaches, pine and quite grassy like freshly cut grass. Body is sticky and medium and the carbonation is soft. Good grassy bitterness, notes of peach and sweet malts. The taste is quite longlasting, sweet and strongly bitter. Never noticed that the guy in the middle of the logo is a skeleton before, so that’s interesting I guess.. All in all an OK IPA.

Thorpe429 (5011) - , Illinois, USA - APR 4, 2011
Reviewed from notes. Pours a moderate caramel copper color with a white head. The nose is some light pine hops with faint hints of citrus. The taste is quite bitter without too much malt, but also does not have all that much hop flavor. Feel is nice with dry bitterness. Other than being bitter--which I always thoroughly enjoy--there isn’t too much for me to get exabout about here. Serving type: can Reviewed on: 10-25-2010

Ingevara (816) - SWEDEN - APR 2, 2011
Brownish orange. Average head. Harsh grapefruit flavor with so much hops that everything else is numbed. It is a perfectly enjoyable beer, but very very far from an IPA; would rather call it an over-hopped english countrystyle ale.

330 ml can at Håndverkerstuene. Dark copper. Crystal clear. Small off-white head that clings to the glass. Apricoty and grassy hop nose. Delicious hops. Crisp hoppy flavours with a distinctive bite. Lingering bitterness. Some malts but body feels light. Caramelly. Tasty.

The beer is a super dark orange that is slightly clear. The head is off white, pretty light looking. It rises about a finger is gone quickly leaving a very thin head. Lacing is pretty good. The aroma is strong and complex. It starts off with a little citrus in the grapefruit variety then it finishes a very strong fresh hoppiness. Bitterness is there buts its more of dry hopped fresh in your hand hoppiness. The taste is super hoppy, almost a little to bitter for my liking, plus it dominates from start to finish with little complexity. There is some definite pine. The feel is a little watery, but has a very dry bitter finish.
