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.

Wolfenkopf (180) - Villa Park, Illinois, USA - FEB 24, 2011
The aroma is of caramel-like malt and intense, flamboyant hops. The brilliant smell hurries one to take the first swig. The head is almond in color and quite fluffy, sticking around for awhile. The brew is gold with orange tint..The flavor is very well balanced with malt and hops. The bitterness that the hops are certainly capable of is tamed by notes of caramel and a hint of vanilla. Brilliantly tasty. The palate is tormented by carbonization only for an instant before the malt and hops take over to form a pleasant aftertaste. Great IPA.

mansquito (4108) - Nueva York, New York, USA - FEB 21, 2011
Somewhere in Chicago: Pours a good copper color with an off-white head. Aroma of fruity hops and sweet malts. I wasn’t as annoyed by the supposed sweetness of this beer as other people were. For me it was a pretty standard, but very well made IPA, without verging into the territory of hop slaughter. I felt as though it had a good body and a pretty good balance of flavor, so while the sweetness was there, to me, it complimented the other flavors. Not all IPAs have to be brutal, bitter bombs.
