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.

12 oz. can. Clear copper with a lasting quarter inch of head. Aroma of fresh green herby hop, resin and citrus. Flavor follows similarly. Light-medium body is dry and drinkable.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - DEC 14, 2009
12oz can. Pours a clear orange-bronze colored body with a finger-width, firm, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a good amount of sticky lacing. Aroma has lots of pines, sweet grapefruit and tangerine citrus with a light resin. Some caramels and crystals provide a solid malt balance along with a pinch of pepper. Flavor is thinner, sweeter caramels and crystals initially before lots of grapefruits and pines come in. Finishes with a thin malt sweetness and plenty of hops. Moderate bitterness and a light resin that dries the palate and leaves a lengthy, grapefruit pine aftertaste. Thinner body and somewhat watery initially, but not very distracting. Overall, a very straightforward, well-hopped IPA. Thinner malts and body, but it stays balanced enough to remain enjoyable. Not the best, but much better than the worst.

Grizzle (80) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - DEC 13, 2009
12 oz. can -> English pint. Poured an amber resin orange, with an eggshell head. Slight lacing, with a constant approx. 1/8th inch head. Smells of skunky hops, citrus, grass, and evergreens. Tastes like a can of skunky grape fruit juice, with some grassy, cereal-y undertones. Also tastes like it came from a can. Iíve had this in a bottle, and remembered enjoying it, which is why I bought the cans. Not bad from a can, but Iíd like to re-rate a bottle.

Suttree (5768) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 6, 2009
From a 12oz can - clear, copper, with a decent white head. Very piney, earthy aroma. Flavor is piney, flinty, but there is also a weird medicinal flavor that kinda messes up the whole thing. OK, I guess.

llcooldave (1181) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - DEC 5, 2009
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.

topherh (1917) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - DEC 2, 2009
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 (25068) - 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
