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.

glennmastrange (2324) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - APR 21, 2009
UPDATED: APR 26, 2009 Bottle. Moderate malt aromas of light bread and roasted, heavy pine for the hops, light soap for the yeast, and background notes of wood, pepper, berry and turpentine. Head is frothy/fizzy, white, with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is hazy, light orange/brown with dense, tiny particles. Palate is light to medium, oily and has a lively carbonation. I loved this IPA smelled. Iíll bet this beer is righteous on tap.

yemenmocha (658) - Glendale, Arizona, USA - APR 19, 2009
Pours bright amber with nice contrasting white head. Nose is stunning with big juicy grapefruit, hop resins, and fresh pine. On the palate the medium to light body delivers a rather dry hoppy profile with some caramel and/or biscuit malt to round it out just a little. Very, very bitter and how delightful it is.
