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.

Poured from a 12oz can into a pint glass. The aroma is of great citrusy and piney hops. It pours a orangey gold body with a thick sticky off white head that leaves great lacing. It tastesmuch like the nose would suggest, citrusy bitter with a nice bit of sweetness in the body to cut into the hops. Moderatley carbonated and easy drinking, an IPA that you could drink anytime of the year.

Aroma is an equal mix of pine and citrus. The flavor is similar to the aroma along with grapefruit and a bit of orange and leads into a bitter finish. A straightforward ale thatís doesnít have any big bells and whistles, just a very good IPA.

ccex (1172) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 30, 2011
My favorite canned IPA. As the name implies, this one has a strong hop aroma with a bit of citrus. Pours a normal yellow/amber. Slightly bitter taste with something else (slight malts?) at the back of the throat. Nothing too outrageous, but nothing negative at all. I enjoyed the more on the second try than the first.

seymour (1829) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - NOV 22, 2011
Appeared a clear orange amber color with creamy, long-lasting head with some lace. Very aromatic: some grains and bread, but lots of piney, resiny, citrusy hops. Grainbill typical of strong American IPA, which is to say a strong malt sweetness which stands up against huge hops bitterness and flavor. A well-crafted, multi-dimensional IPA. I appreciate they didnít use 100% grapefruity Cascade hops. Medium body, spritzy mouthfeel, warming alcohol. Lingering fruity, bittersweet aftertaste. Certainly one of the worldís finest canned beers. I know what Iím packing for the next camping/canoeing trip.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2012 Bottle. Hazy amber colour with a small white head. A huge grape nose. Rich citric and hoppy flavour.

On tap at Oskar Blues. Solid IPA. Although there are difinitely better IPAs, this is a quality IPA at its price point.
