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.

SaintMatty (5536) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - FEB 20, 2011
355ml Bottle - Copper with a small head. Pine, toffee, grapefruit and nuts in the aroma. Rather bitter, hoppy and tangy taste with notes of grapefruit, biscuity malt and toffee. The bitterness seems to fade in the finish and replaced with a slight sweetness.

FatPhil (9616) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 20, 2011
355ml bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki, American Weeks 2011)
6 Very typical sweet fruity hops, and sweet biscuity malts.
4 Coppery, small head.
6 Sugar-dominated, but a decent bitterness too.
3+ Slick and sticky. Fortunately the hops hold out for a nice bitter finish.
12 Pretty OK US IPA, but suffering from the slick sugariness that pancake and syrup munchers on the other side of the pond seem to like.

lusikka (6551) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 20, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2014 355 ml bottle @ O’Hara’s, Tampere.
Pours a clear copper colour without a head. Aroma of sweet fruits, citrus and American hops. Flavour of sweet hops, caramel, hay, syrup and pine needles. Medium bodied with a pleasant bitter finish. A sweet IPA without too much hops. 8-3-7-4-15 3.7

Fresh 355 ml can, numerous times.
Big piney aroma with moderate amount of caramel. Flavour is very bitter with piney, chewy, grapefruity notes. Very drinkable. The bitterness kicks in hard. Brilliant stuff. 8-3-8-4-16

ClubGonzo (4235) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 19, 2011
Can @ Henrik, Bergen. Pours a clear, deep orange body with a medium, short-lasting creamy off-white head. Nose is great: resin, pine, grapefruit and apricot, with hints of peaches, melon and oranges. Sooo much fruit! Me like. Taste is resinous grapefruit tones, hints of peaches, caramel and some sour-ish malty tones that I do not quite get. OK mouthfeel. The taste in general falls short of the initial promise of "awesomeness-in-a-can", but this is nevertheless an original and well-made IPA.

TBone (12998) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 19, 2011
Bottled 355ml (Beer Hunters, BB 08/2011)
Clear amber color, small white head. Sticky cat piss aroma with some exotic fruits. Medium-bodied. Fruity, grassy bitter: grapefruit, bread, passion fruit, lemongrass in the flavor. Good and complex IPA - not too heavy, so has also very good drinkability.

Pours pretty clear amber a biiig frothy beige head leaving nice lace. Aroma is very very nice, sweet, candy, piny, fruity and some malty. Fruity hoppy mouthfeel. Flavor is very nice indeed, piny, fruity, floral; very fresh. Great piny hoppy palate as is the finish with fruity undertones.

mjs (4794) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 17, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2012 (Re-rate, a quite fresh can at Pikkulintu, 20120331) The harshness I mentioned below is missing and the beer is well balanced. Aftertaste is long lasting with nice hoppy flavours.

(Bottle, 0.355 l - BBE 2011-08-31, at Pikkulintu) The beer poured amber and clear. Its head was medium sized, white and it disappeared quickly. Aroma had hops, pine, fruitiness and malts. Palate was medium bodied and dry with medium carbonation. Flavours were hops, fruitiness, pine, sweetness, malts, citricness and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A bit harsh beer but still good.
