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.

olsvammel (3934) - Örebro, SWEDEN - FEB 27, 2011
Bottle from Systembolaget. This is my definite favorite in this release. Very nice fruity hoppy aroma with lots of grapefruit and citrus, lifted by a caramel malty body. The bitterness is also very nice and lasted a long time. However it seems to differ in quality. The first bottles I got where amazing, so I ran and bought 6 more bottles and they differed from around 3/5 to 4/5. Some of the bottles had lost hop aroma and also felt a bit overly alcoholic. I can live with getting a couple of bottles that aren’t quite up to my expectations, just as long as I get some more of the great ones, but at least I’ve warned you.
