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 shared with Daje. Red with a thin white head. Grapefruit and orange peels in the aroma. Taste grapefruit and sweetness and fade to a very good bitter finish. Much good hops here. Very fruity

olsvammel (3552) - Örebro, SWEDEN - FEB 27, 2011
Bottle from Systembolaget. This is my definite favorite in this release. Very nice fruity hoppy aroma with lots of grapefruit and citrus, lifted by a caramel malty body. The bitterness is also very nice and lasted a long time. However it seems to differ in quality. The first bottles I got where amazing, so I ran and bought 6 more bottles and they differed from around 3/5 to 4/5. Some of the bottles had lost hop aroma and also felt a bit overly alcoholic. I can live with getting a couple of bottles that aren’t quite up to my expectations, just as long as I get some more of the great ones, but at least I’ve warned you.

Bottle. DId not like this one. The balance is just not here. Its thin but has still got that medicinal hop bitterness.

Trevlig och fruktig humledoft, smakar gräs och frukt med fin balans mot humlan. Lagom lång eftersmak. Rätt så trevlig

rollinsr (387) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - FEB 25, 2011
Had this on a backcountry skiing trip in Silverton, CO (right down the road from the Ska Brewery in Durango). Very inviting citrus hop aroma with light hints of malt character. Pours a nice rich golden color. Good bitter citrus taste with a crisp and refreshing finish for a substantial IPA.

Wolfenkopf (172) - Villa Park, Illinois, USA - FEB 24, 2011
The aroma is of caramel-like malt and intense, flamboyant hops. The brilliant smell hurries one to take the first swig. The head is almond in color and quite fluffy, sticking around for awhile. The brew is gold with orange tint..The flavor is very well balanced with malt and hops. The bitterness that the hops are certainly capable of is tamed by notes of caramel and a hint of vanilla. Brilliantly tasty. The palate is tormented by carbonization only for an instant before the malt and hops take over to form a pleasant aftertaste. Great IPA.
