COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Itís 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.

spilledpint (346) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - APR 30, 2011
12 oz. can from Tylerís bottle shop Carrboro Ar: Fresh, hoppy aroma. Lots of grapefruit zest and a bit of resin. Ap: Pretty translucent amber with a frothy off-white head. Very nice laceage. Yeah, I can make up words. T: Caramelly sweetness up front, moderate sweetness for an IPA. Moderate bitterness for an IPA - nice citrus. P: Somewhat creamy body for an IPA with a mild carbonation. O: Excellent IPA. Hop fruitiness, lovely bitterness, touch of malty sweetness.

From Can. Pours a medium clear amber with small off-white head, mostly diminishing. Good lacing throughout. Nice hop aroma of citrus and pine. Good, well-balanced taste with right amount of malt with the hops. Dry finish of an IPA. Would be happy to take a few sixers of this on the Current River - Prost!

Palme (3605) - 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 thatís interesting I guess.. All in all an OK IPA.
