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.

Hard to find a better IPA, especially in a can. Huge on the nose and even better on the way down. There are a lot of great IPA’s out there but few are as sessionable as this one

Sammy (8675) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 15, 2010
Pours dark golden colour, with generous white head, and leaving lace. Some hop aromas. Substantial alpha, hop and carbonation burning was my experience. A good hop flavour, however, and good drinkability (next time on a fuller stomach). Fresh, with above average carbonation.

Aroma gets you going as soon as the can opens. Surprisingly balanced with so much hop character. Excellent.

HOPSHUNTER (742) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 12, 2010
Can courtesy of jbye4334. Poured a slightly hazy amber with a medium egg shell head. Nose is citrus, pine, earth, and a slight vegetal note. Fairly full body with an oily mouth feel and good carbonation. Strong caramel, pale malt base with some fruity notes of grapefruit and orange zest, also big notes of pine and grass, and a slight herbalness. Finishes with a decent amount of hops bitterness.

Gregis (1281) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - APR 11, 2010
Pours a hazy copper with two fingers of beige head that leaves behind cascading lace. The nose is a simple but pleasant blend of grapefruity hop and caramel malt notes with just a touch of candy sugar sweetness thrown into the mix. Fairly light-bodied and slightly grainy with a lingering bitter finish. The flavor follows the nose with a solid caramel/pale malt base backed by a complimentary punch of grapefruity citric And spicy hops bringing on the bitterness one looks for in an IPA. If you’re craving a hop fix in-a-can, you could do a lot worse than this one.

craftbeerdesign (2176) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 11, 2010
can on 4/7/10... pours a deep orange with a thick fluffy pillow head... big floral nose right out of the can... medium body with a generous hopping, smooth floral notes with a light malt undertone.... some fresh piney hop leaf notes as well... solid bitter finish - a really nice IPA for the hop heads.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 11, 2010
Dark caramel red, off white head. Aroma is pure pine hops and caramel. Taste is caramel, biting pine bitter.

Beerman6686 (4370) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2010
This poured a bright orange color with a white head. Aroma was a good bit of citrusy hops with a light mellow malt aroma. Flavor was a good bit of hops, not bitter but great hop taste, balanced with a good amount of malt. Nothing amazing, but a pretty damn good IPA.

HalfCockedJack (16) - Texas, USA - APR 7, 2010
Aroma- Strong Citrus//Pine Air Freshener Appearance- Cloudy amber, very little head Taste- Medium sweetness, strong grapefruit, strong metallic flavor, dish soap Palate- Medium body, slightly oily hops residue, unpleasant metallic bitterness as an aftertaste Overall- I had heard many good things about this beer, but it did not live up to the hype. It follows in the path of the belief that American IPAs have to be hop monsters, so it has a lot of hops. But it falls into the trap of not being able to balance the hops and malt, or to make them harmonious. Rather, the hops come off loud and bright. Not bad, just not great.

Got this in a great BIF package. Interesting seeing a canned IPA, pours a brownish gold with a small white head with good lacing. Aroma is hop and resins. Taste is a great balance, smooth hop bitterness and malt. Truly a very nice IPA that I would have anytime. Don’t let the can fool you.
