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.

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.

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.

unclemike (2309) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - JAN 2, 2011
Pours golden yellow with white head. Nose is caramel, pine sap, honey, and nice sweetness and malt behind the hops. Flavor is almost the same with biting pine and citrus hops. Sharp, yet balanced with a medium body and a nice bite.

Draft at Barleys Brewhaus in KC. Light hazy amber with an off white head that stuck around. Sticky lacing. Pine, grassy,grapefruit, resin and toffee permeates from this pungent nose. Really appetizing. Sticky on the lips and lighter bodied, there was a wheatty richness to the texture. Pleasant bitterness on a fairly long, tasty finish. Well balanced and masterful. Enjoy one.

jzzbassman (1522) - New Albany, Mississippi, USA - DEC 27, 2010
Pours a light orange with a nice two finger everlasting head. Nice sweet fruit and hay aroma. Dry bitterness on the back of a nice full IPA malt bill without being over sweet.

Pastor (799) - Skowhegan, Maine, USA - DEC 27, 2010
Thanks to Santa Adam for this. I poured the can into a Sam Adams pint glass and was greeted with a good three finger off white head that just stuck around. The body of the brew was a hazy orange amber in color. I got a ton of hop aromas from this one tons of floral and pine notes. The flavor was bitter and grassy not much in the way of malts showing up in it at all. It was almost oily to the mouth with good carbonation. I could drink a couple of these but I donít know how many more than that due to the bitterness

Clear, brown-amber. Nice, fresh AIPA aroma with caramel, pine and citrus. Crisp, sweet, grapefruity and candied. Medium to slightly heavy body. Grapefruit hoppiness and woody finish. Some off sulphury notes in the aftertaste. Cool tap handle, shades of Madness in the 80ís. On tap, Flying Saucer, KC.
