COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Itís 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.

Nice fruity aroma; citrus, berries with minty hops. Reddish brown in color with a caramel colored head. Big hops flavor that dominates over everything, with a a medicinal bitter aftertaste. Itís a little oily on the palate for a very slick mouth feel. Overall a good representation of the style, a solid effort.

Can. Pours light brown with a white head. Aroma is pine and citrus hops with a little caramel malt. Flavor starts with a little caramel sweetness and is then all hops. Pine, grapefruit, floral notes, with just enough malt to keep it from going overboard. Nice bitter finish.

12 fl oz can. Pours clear and golden orange with a small off-white head. Aroma is grapefruity, peachy and pinewood hoppy. Fruity hops flavoured, crisp bitterness and nice caramelish malt base providing a good base to the bitterness. Ends lingering pinewood hoppy.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2009
Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of byaeger. Pours a cloudy amber with a firm of-white head. Intense peachy hop aroma. Solid body, first sweet and caramellish but then an array of hop flavours take over, flowers and fruits, before a dry and lightly bitter finish. Very delicious. 221109

12oz can poured into a shaker. SKA MH IPA pours a wonderful bronze with a stark white head that is huge for an IPA. The nose is Heaven with huge notes of hops resin, almost like marijuana. The aroma actually clears the head and intimates well water. The body is strong hops and well water. It isnít too bitter and not too weak. This is a world-class IPA. The finish is grassy and full of bitter happiness. Iím extremely happy with this beer.

Ughsmash (7157) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 17, 2009
Canned. Poured a lovely shade of reddish-orange with a creamy, well-retained off-white head.. great lacing as it descended. The aroma picked up bright pine resin and orange hoppage over toasted pale and caramel maltage.. a little bready feel on the back.. solid. The flavor found orange meat and pale malts at the core.. orange and piney bitterness around.. a bit soapy and warm on the back. Medium-bodied and dry on the palate.. spicy and bitter.. decent feel to it.

The Dan Journal #291. Tasted August 2009. 12oz Can. Hazy with a golden hue. Off-white lacing head. Grassy hoppy aromas. Full bodied with a big hop palate. Sweet initial malts. Hops dominate the palate. But very good drinking.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - NOV 13, 2009
Bottle at Flying Saucer, Houston.
Pours a deep cheddar orange with a nice, subtle grapefruit and pine. Flavor is slightly off and bitter grapefruit with an expired orange finish. Average mouthfeel. Funky, but not bad.
