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.

Nice IPA. Good complexity of hops that mingled well in the can. High but not overwhelming alcohol was a nice compliment.

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2015 Draft. Dark copper and clear. Nose is mild hops and citrusy. Fresh hops with a nice malt body. Fresh and goes down smoothly.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2011
Red brown coloured beer with average carbonation and a short off white head. Hoppy touched aroma. Medium to full bitter touched palate. Finish is strong hoppy bitter hinted with a longer fruity bitter ending. Not bad.

J_man (780) - Tustin, California, USA - AUG 13, 2011
Earthy, hempy aromas coming off a deep, clear medium amber body with a white head. Very grassy, grapefruit hop bitterness hits first but is tamed by a solid caramel malt flavor. This beer is oozing hop juice but not in an overdone way. Pithy bitterness dries out the tongue leaving it slightly puckered, but soothing creamy sweetness washes just enough away to make it delicious. Well done West Coast style IPA that hop heads will love.

Thanks to Tkrjukoff for this bottle! Bottle @ home shared with DutchDrebus. Clear dark orange color, nice average white head. Very fruity, very hoppy smell, love it! Very nice fruit, grapefruit and hops in the taste. Great carbo as well! Medium body.

LinusStick (2965) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2011
On tap at Ginger Man, Houston. A nice strong hoppy beer. Aroma was big and green. All citrus, grapefruit rind and a hint of earthiness. Pour was a medium gold with a few rising bubbles and no head. Taste was very one dimensional (in a good way). The hops block out anything else trying to poke through. A slight sweetness of pale malt squeaks through in the middle, but for the most part this beer is bitter and dry. The cheeks are left bone dry after the swallow. Only problem with this beer was the weak carbonation. Other than that, nice tasting beer

degbert (1311) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 5, 2011
Can. Pours a dark, dark red-orange with a cream-colored, large-grained head. Nose is grapefruit, rosemary, and menthol. A lot of hops on the open, but balanced well with a pleasant orangey malt on the midpalate, Finishes smooth and clean. This is very, very good.

Golden orange form a green can. Burnt candy caramel and tropical fruits. Not too thick but it is sticky, sweet and bitter.

Pours from the can with a very hazy orange color, and a modest but sticky eggshell-white head. This is certainly not the most fragrant IPA, but the aroma is pleasant, with a decidedly hop-forward combination of wildflowers and oranges over a subtle backbone of bread and caramel. Nicely bitter in the flavor but certainly more balanced, characteristics of grapefruit and flowers are big without (drastically) overpowering the underlying caramel sweetness. The texture is moderately resinous, with a glimmer of the citrusy bitterness lingering long after each sip. Overall, this is a flavorful yet highly drinkable IPA.
