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.

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2010 Draft at the KC F.S. and again at Marfields. Really fine IPA. Darker than expected color with a medium white head and a little lacing. The bitterness is nice, a little towards the piney side but definitely not overpowering. well done.

AndyReynolds (886) - Dayton, Kentucky, USA - SEP 10, 2010
UPDATED: APR 28, 2014 Can. Aroma is tons of fresh floral hops with a nice malt backbone. Notes of pine, pepper, and citrus stand out. Palate is perfect, a little dry with a strong bitter aftertaste. Flavor brings some of the malt forward. Very impressive for a standard ipa.

12 ounce can thanks to grant. This appears to be about 3 weeks old according to the date on the bottom. The aroma on this is pretty nice with a good amount of citrus orange and piney hop bouquets. Malt sweetness is subdued. Aromatic. Transparent copper body with some slight amber hues present. Nice off-white head and good lacing along with good head retention. Starts immediately with piney, herbal hop bitterness. Light toasted and caramel malts in the middle. A bit burnt. Finishes fairly dry with more earthy, herbal, and grapefruit hop bitterness that lingers. This is pretty darn good, and probably the best canned IPA on the market.

fraternie (820) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 9, 2010
From can- dark amber body, frothy head, with aromas of citrus, pine and hops. Slightly sweet with caramel malts shading the grapefruit citrus and resin notes, with a big blast of hops through the finish. Just a tad off balance but a big, malty IPA with lots of hops and citrus lingering.

Can. Poured a darker amber color with a two finger white head. Left lots of lacing as it went. Aroma was citrus and grapefuit. A sweeter flavor. Well balanced ipa. A good one.

graham515 (536) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 6, 2010
Pours amber/red into the glass with a fluffy offwhite head that lasts. A constant stream of bubbles is coming up from the bottom of the glass. Aroma is citrusy with a bit of malt sweetness. Nice creamy mouthfeel accompanies the bitterness of this brew.

danielcurtis81 (1519) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 3, 2010
Served from a can. The appearance is a nice golden brown. A resin hop flavor to this one with some medicinal or floral notes. Not too bad of an ipa.

Amber in color. Solid amount of hops. Mostly floral. May be an overhyped beer. Solid table IPA in my opinion.
