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.

Hoppy citrus aroma not too strong. Appearance is clear orange tint. Sweet hop taste then very biter quickly on the palate. Overall not bad for a canned ipa.

hopasaurus_rex (109) - Surprise, Arizona, USA - JAN 30, 2012
Pours a rich mahogany color. Aromas of centennial hops blast you in the face. Grapefruit, grassy, sugary. Pleasant. Initial taste is smooth, slightly bitter with a nice sweet hoppy, earthy taste. Finishes with a pepper/sugar lingering flavor. Has a tad of an oily mouthfeel but overall a pretty decent IPA.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - JAN 28, 2012
12oz can. Rating #501. Dark and clear orangish/amber color with a nice white head that left some good lacing. Nice sweet graiefruit aroma, slight tropical aroma as well, very nice. Sweet citrus, nice flavor really, a little more tropical, above average bitterness. Good stuff. (2141)

stefannilssons (1580) - SWEDEN - JAN 26, 2012
Det här var en trevlig välhumlad sak, med mycket humlesmak och med mycket beska. Smaken i sig är blommig med inslag av citrus och sötma, och sötman och humlen jobbar/fungerar väldigt bra tillsammans. Eftersmaken går, inte heller den, av för hackor.

_angst_ (4499) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 15, 2012
Can @ BAJT on January 14. Pours hazy apricot with a creamy white head that leaves lots of trace on the glass while dissipating. smell is malty sweet with peaches, pine, resin, grass and gooseberries. Taste is malty sweet and bitter with wood, pine, grapefruit and unripe peaches. Mouthfeel is slightly sticky and oily. Finish is sweet, bitter and fruity. Very refreshing.

gregwilsonstl (2108) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 14, 2012
Beautiful aroma. Great hop/body balance. Bitterness sits on the toungue for just the right amount of time. This may be a perfect beer. How is that possible, it came in a can?

illidurit (2284) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 13, 2012
Can courtesy of scray24, poured into a pint glass. Brownish color with a lacy off-white head. Aroma of grass clippings, lychee, and bread, heavy on the malt overall. Flavor is similar, malt-forward especially with crystal and caramel, and a mild fruitiness. Hops? Please?

agl108 (1057) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2012
12 oz. can from Appalachian Vitner, Asheville. Poured amber with sheets of lacing. Sweet nose, light citrus and grass present. Flavor is of sweet malt and standard citrus profile. Bitter finish, but not tongue stripping. Smooth and sessionable. Nothing sticks out about this beer, just well done overall. A solid canned IPA.

Great beer, pours two fingers of head. Very nice aroma little hints of citrus on the nose. Flavor mostly bitter hops but finishes with a touch of citrus. Overall very nice ipa.
