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.

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.

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.

Can-pours copper hue with a soapy off-white head. nose is piney, earthy and somewhat dirty-chinook? however, this years chinook crop smelled fantastic! some metallic notes as well-from the can im guessing. flavors exhibit bit dirty hops, metallic notes and a sweet malt backbone. tehre is alot of good qualities about this beer, but it doesnt come together all that well-somewhat messy. long resinous finish. body is kind of thin, but not bad. decent and would like to try fresh on tap sometime.

Mildly hazed amber with a rocky taupe head leaving some lace as it slowly fades away. Aroma of pine, resinous and floral hops, caramel and orange. Taste of floral and resinous hops balanced out nicely by the sweet malt. Mild vegetation sneaks in, but not too much of a hinderance. Finishes up resinous and bitter, they sure can can their IPA’s in Colorado!

12oz can into a Sam Adams perfect pint. Light amber color with small white head. You can really smell the grapefruit in this brew but it comes with hints of aluminum. Smooth mouth feel. Taste of sweet grass. A lil’ unbalanced but overall not bad.

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2010 can. Pours a cloudy, dark amber with an off-white head. Nose is of pine and citrus. Taste is of citrus balanced by sweet malt. Mouthfeel is very bitter. Surprised that it was better than expected. This has become my go-to IPA.

Pours a nice golden color with a medium head and some good lace. The aroma is very dank with lots of Otto’s jacket notes and a good citrus character. The flavor is mildly roasty and has lots of good spicy and fruity hops. Really tasty stuff.

Thanks Bob! 12oz bottle. A bit red. Poor head retention. Nice carb level. Dish soapy hops. Some herby pine. Good firm bitterness. Malt backbone is just a bit too sweet. Could be a little dryer.
