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.

At initial glance, Iíd have to say this beer is overrated due to being in a can. Even for an IPA, itís a bit too bitter/resiny to be much better. It is certainly enjoyable, but needs a bit more balance as the Northwest style hops are overwhelming.

Svesse (6174) - Hšsselby, SWEDEN - JAN 23, 2011
(Can, Oliver Twist, Stockholm, 22 Jan 2011) Amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with notes of pine needles, grapefruit, toasty malt and orange peel. Fruity, hoppy taste with grapefruit, pine needles, orange peel and fresh hops in the finish. More than medium body, with balanced sweetness. A bit one dimensional, but very tasty and nice.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 23, 2011
Can:   Bright orangish amber, moderate to large frothy white head, fairly sticky lacing.   So far its looks pretty good!   The nose is a combination of soft wet hops, a little dank, with some faint earthy malt like aromas.   Almost has an overcooked vegetable like presense, but it stops short of being unpleasant.   Soft sweet hoppiness up front, hoppy yet not bitter, with an underlying aspect of wet cardboard.   While it sounds bad, its not too strong.   Dank without all the basement is a way I would describe this.   Not bright, not dull, but right in the middle.   The finish seems a little stale, almost like an orange peel infused cardboard coaster.   Sounds bad, but its actually not.   This one has some flavor, but those flavors arenít all that sharp.   Thanks to drfabulous for the can!

Poured into a pint glass. 4.5 A: Clear dark orange/amber color. Big creamy head with excellent retention and lots of lacing. 3.5 S: Mild hop aroma with citrus (grapefruit) and pine. Caramel malts. Not bad, but could be more intense. 4.0 T: Not too big on hops like I like my IPAs, but this is a winner none the less. Itís an elegant mix of piney hops and a great malt bill. Caramel malts add a touch of roasted flavor that is not overwhelming, but rather meshes well with the rest of the brew. 4.0 M: Medium body. Good carbonation and creamy like I like these. 5.0 D: Solid brew. Thanks to scray24 for the chance to try this. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 05-26-2009 21:50:19

LilBeerDoctor (3504) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2011
Can. Pours a clear orange with a small white head. Aroma of caramel malt, toast, floral and earthy hops, with a touch of citrus. Flavor of caramel malt, grassy hops, with a bitter malty finish. Nice IPA with a maltier profile. Very drinkable too. 7/4/7/4/15 [3.7/5]

Can courtesy of Craig, thanks buddy. Dark orange pour, small white head, great lace. Aroma was filled with sweet piney hops and malt, great citrus notes, orange peel, floral. Light sweet citrus up front, piney goodness throughout. Just a great hop presence. Piney lingering bitter finish, dry. Good carbonation, full mouthfeel, oily. Nice IPA.

mcox90 (1565) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 9, 2011
12oz can. Pours a cloudy pink/amber color with a 2 finger white head. Color is almost that of pink grapefruit. Similarities to grapefruit donít end there with a huge grapefruit hop aroma with a touch of pine. Flavor follows suit with the addition of herbal hops as well a bit of earthiness. Full palate with mild carbonation and a long bitter finish.

Can. Pours hazy golden orange with a foamy white head. Nose has grass, grapefruit rind, and clementines. Flavors are juicy oranges and earthy clementines, soft bitterness, Crisp and clean. Iíd pick it up more if it was canned on dated.
