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.

Bottle. Lovely deep dark orange colour. Smells hoppy, but not very fruity. Tastes hoppy, grapefruit, bitter - wow. Very bitter aftertaste, full body, great carbo. Bottle looks amazing.

Can from MrPickles...thanks Andy! - Says "Lip Up Fatty" on the side of the can, which though I have no idea what it means, is awesome. Pours amber with a thin off-white head. Smell is caramelly malt, and lots of it, mixed with piney, grassy hops. A little too grassy/piney bitter in the taste, though the sweetness of the malt hides it a bit. The carbonation bites a bit much, and those hops linger on the back of the throat a looong time. Not my cup of tea as far as hop profile, and maybe a little too sweet. Decent though, and I think I’ll start saying "Lip Up Fatty" from now on.

Nice golden color with a short off-white head and a great hop and citrus aroma. Strong hop flavor with malt and a slightly citrus aftertaste. A great, well-rounded IPA.

Vignale (3147) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 29, 2011
Bärnstensfärgad med medelhögt skum. Grapesyltig doft. Ananas, passionsfrukt i början, sedan beskare grape, lätt, frisk och lite syrlig kropp (vete) och medelstor beska. Ingen wow-upplevelse, men en bra IPA.

On tap @ Oskar Blues. Pours a deep golden orange with a nice off white head that left behind some great lacing. Nose starts with a burst of citrus hops followed by some biscuity / caramel malts. Medium bitter on the palate. Damn tasty stuff!

Nice IPA. Good complexity of hops that mingled well in the can. High but not overwhelming alcohol was a nice compliment.

bleeng (1652) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - AUG 22, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2015 Draft. Dark copper and clear. Nose is mild hops and citrusy. Fresh hops with a nice malt body. Fresh and goes down smoothly.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2011
Red brown coloured beer with average carbonation and a short off white head. Hoppy touched aroma. Medium to full bitter touched palate. Finish is strong hoppy bitter hinted with a longer fruity bitter ending. Not bad.

J_man (898) - Tustin, California, USA - AUG 13, 2011
Earthy, hempy aromas coming off a deep, clear medium amber body with a white head. Very grassy, grapefruit hop bitterness hits first but is tamed by a solid caramel malt flavor. This beer is oozing hop juice but not in an overdone way. Pithy bitterness dries out the tongue leaving it slightly puckered, but soothing creamy sweetness washes just enough away to make it delicious. Well done West Coast style IPA that hop heads will love.

AROMA: citrus, dry creek on a summer day with dragon flies APPEARANCE: ample head and good lacing, TASTE: butter but rounded PALATE:creamy and a touch astringent, longish bitter finish; OVERALL: bit of a surprise and quite good
