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.

Pours slightly hazy amber with a big beige head. Strong pine and floral citrus aroma. Taste is very well balanced strong hop and malt. Not as many IBUís as other hop bombs but I will say this definitely is one, plus it is only a regular IPA.

beautiful pale copper, small, quickly diminishing head. Light lacing. good hop aroma is marred by some funky rubber smell. Flavor starts off sweet and bitter fruity and gets really bitter and hoppy. Character is bright and fun. In spite of the strong flavor, the finish is pretty clean.

Another can from Tim. Pouirs dark orange with a sticky white head. Thereís some fine particles floating around here. The nose is ripe citrus fruit, chewy bubble gum, and a bit of pine cleaner. Mmmmm, I needed this tonight. This thing says "You want the hops? You canít handle the hops". Wow. This a hoppy bitter bitch. Some days this may be a bit much, but I needed smacked up side the head today. Thanks Ska.

Clear copper pour with a nice white head. Good retention and lacing. Beer looks great. The expected citrus and pine on the nose, a little spice. Mostly hops on the tongue with a lasting bitterness. Could go for a little more malt either at the beginning or middle. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Nicely done. Iíll take this next time iím up in the mountains.

Bottle. Pours copper with a thin white head. Smells of earth, citrus. Tastes of dry malt, some citrus, resin, spice, peppery.

demdeac40 (299) - Etowah, North Carolina, USA - JUN 16, 2009
Nice looking pour. Nice orange color with great carbonation and a foamy off white head. Nose is strong piney hops with a nice, light, sweet citrus in the background. Boom, the flavor is huge piney hops and not much else to balance it. A little malt tries to come through mid palate but really doesnít show. The complexities of the nose donít all come out in the flavor. Of course if you are all about hops this is your kind of beer.

12 oz can purchased at Beertopia in Omaha, Nebraska. Pour is mostly clear golden orange with a tight one inch off white head. Falls with thick sticky lacing. Aroma of fresh pine hops, lighter resin grapefruit citrus, earthy toasty malt behind that. Fresh and nice. Taste is big pine, catty, resin grapefruit layered on top of thinnish toasty malt. Taste follows the nose nicely, though is not quite as put together. Palate is thin, a bit watery and mostly the hops. Finish is bitter, resin and mineral. Nice, though really gave the sensation of hop water.

Sweet pine aroma, cloudy light brown with solid head. Sweet and balanced IPA, surprisingly good out of a can. Off dry finish

kyzr (1153) - Belgrade, Montana, USA - JUN 13, 2009
Pours a darker copper with big thick head. Nose is citrus and pine, but not really that strong. Flavor is much more pronounced than that of the nose. Nice citrus hop with decent malt to back it up, finish is bitter with a good bit of carbinatino.

dark amber pour with a thick cream head. hops, citrus, esters, almost like a bouquet of brightness. very smooth on the palate with a great citrusy hop flavor and no bitterness at all.
